The Supplication to Terchen Trulzhik Dongak Lingpa

(gter chen ‘khrul zhig mdo sngags gling pa’i gsol ‘debs)

by Terchen Trulzhik Dongak Lingpa (Himself)

(gter chen ‘khrul zhig mdo sngags gling pa, 1862-1922)

Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos


 

TS’É DI’I JA-WA MI-LAM GYU-MA TAR

Seeing the activities of this life to be like dreams and illusions,

T’ONG NAY ZHEN-PA TING LOK JA TANG-WA

You deeply turned away from grasping, and cast aside worldly activities;

T’U-TOP SANG-DAK MI YI ZUK SU TRUL

The mighty and powerful Lord of Secrets [Vajrapāṇi], incarnated in human form:

KÜN-ZANG T’ONG-DRÖL DOR-JÉR SÖL-WA DEP

To the Universally Excellent Vajra Who Liberates Upon Seeing (Künzang T’ongdröl Dorjé), I supplicate.

This was personally authored by Künzang T’ongdröl Dorjé (Terchen Trulzhik Dongak Lingpa, kun bzang mthong grol rdo rje).

(Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos, late October-late November 2017, in the village of Rakkar, near Dharamshala, India.)
