Mandala Offering

mandala-offeringAnointed with perfumed water and strewn with flowers,

the ground is adorned with the axial mountain,

four continents, sun, and moon.


With the realization of suchness,

I make outer, inner, and profound offerings to the assembly of Lamas

who have completely perfected the three Buddha bodies.


I offer the objects of the senses,

gain and loss, pain and pleasure,

fame and infamy, praise and censure.


I offer possessions and deficiencies,

faults and virtues, friends and enemies,

poisonous emotions and wrong views,

the six cognitive consciousnesses,

the afflicted consciousness, and the ground consciousness.


I beseech the Lamas to accept the offerings of this body,

mind, and apparent existence,

and bestow the unsurpassed, supreme accomplishment.

om idam guru ratna mandalakam niryatayami
