Prayer for Protection

Merciful Mother, Dispeller of Fear, grant me Your protection!

Sustain my practice with Your Mighty Forms

That the pure stream of Your Force may flow within me

In this world and the worlds to come.

Protect and sustain the Pure Dharma of Definitive Meaning!

Protect and sustain the Lineage of the Great Middle Way!

Subdue all hindrances and pacify obstructers!

Make my way straight

That I may swiftly accumulate vast wisdom and compassion

And attain the Great Purpose!

om tare tuttare ture so’ha

Tara is the Great Mother and Protector. In other lineages, She is invoked to protect from physical, emotional, or mental harm. Jonangpas invoke Her to protect us against external and internal obstacles to Dharma practice, which is the only lasting value.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.

    Can you explain “Great Purpose”? Is it one in the same with the aspirations of bodhisattvas?
