An Aspiration for Enlightenment, by Khenpo Jigmey Puntsok Rinpoche

An Aspiration for Enlightenment

by Khenpo Jigmey Puntsok Rinpoche


 

ZAP ZHI TRÖ-DREL Ö-SEL DÜ-MA-JAY

Profound, peaceful, free from fabrications, luminous, unconditioned:

DÜ-TSI TA-BU’I CHHÖ-NYI DÖN TOK NAY

May the actual state of the ambrosia-like true nature of things be realized,

GANG-LA-GANG-DÜL T’HAP-KHAY CHÖ-PA YII

And, with conduct of skillful means that trains in any way possible,

PAK-YAY DRO-WA DREN-PAY T’HU-T’HOP SHOK

May the power to guide innumerable transient beings be attained.

This was composed by Ngawang Lodrö Tsungmey [Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche].

Translated by Erick Tsiknopoulos.
