Calling the Lama

Authentic Lamas possessing compassion,

Protectors, Rulers of All Things, We pray to you!

May our mind which nakedly realizes the mode of abiding

and your exalted mind become non-different.

Primordial Buddhas who embody the lineage,

holy Lamas who embody the source of certainty,

assembly of Lights who are the source of all perfections,

Gracious Dharma Friends, Precious Lamas,

at all times, please look upon us with compassion.

You are our only certainty.

After ripening our mind with a stream of blessings

may we lead the six mother beings to liberation!

—Jetsun Taranatha, Calling the Lama from Afar (excerpt), on the anniversary of Kyabje Tashi Norbu Rinpoche’s parinirvana
