A Praise and Prayer for Erick Tsiknopoulos

by Khenchen Lama Pelgyeypa Dorjé Rinpoché, 2010 
(mkhan chen bla ma dpal dgyes pa rdo rje rin po che)

ཨེ་མ་ཧོཿ
É-MA-HO
How wondrous!

ཨེ་རིག་སྟོང་པའི་ཤེས་རབ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་ཤིང་།།
É: RIK TONG-PA’Y SHEY-RAP TRA-SHIY SHING
E: The good fortune of the Discerning Insight of Empty Intrinsic Awareness, 

ཝཾ་རིག་སྣང་བའི་ཀུན་བཟང་བདེ་ལེགས་པོ།།
WAM: RIK NANG-WA’Y KÜN-ZANG DÉ-LEK-PO
VAM: The auspiciousness of the Universal Excellence of Apparent Intrinsic Awareness, 

ཟུང་འཇུག་སྤྲུལ་པའི་ལོ་ཙཱ་གཞན་ཕན་ཅན།།
ZUNG-JUK TRUL-PA’Y LO-TSĀ ZHEN-P’EN CHEN
The Translator who is an emanation of their integral unity, imbued with benevolence:

རྟེན་འབྲེལ་དམ་པའི་གྲོགས་ལ་བསྟོད་པ་བགྱི།།
TEN-DREL DAM-PA’Y DROK LA TÖ-PA GYI
Praise be to this friend of sublime interdependence;

བསྟན་དང་འགྲོ་བའི་དོན་ཆེན་འགྲུབ་པར་ཤོག།
TEN DANG DRO-WA’Y DÖN CH’EN DRUP-PAR SHOK
May he accomplish great benefit for the Teachings and living beings.

ཅེས་པའང་ཅི་དྲན་དུ་ཤྲཱིས་སྨྱོན་པས་སྨོན་པ་དོན་དང་ལྡན་པར་གྱུར་ཅིག །
And so the Madman Śrī prayed thus, with whatever came to mind. May it be of significance!
