Chokgyur Lingpa’s Wish for the Ultimate Pure Land

Lotus-Born, no separation,
___from the pristine, natural state,

Copper-Colored Realm of Splendor,
___purity of self-display,

Undivided play and knowing,
___basic sphere of naturalness—

Let’s be born within this pure realm:
___true perfection, beyond time.

sound track will follow

The Copper-Colored Realm of Splendor is the terrestrial pure land of Guru Rinpoche situated on the subcontinent Chamara to the south-east of the Jambu Continent. Chamara is the central of a configuration of nine islands inhabited by savage rakshas. In the middle of Chamara rises the majestic red colored mountain into the skies. On its summit lies the magical palace Lotus Light, manifested from the natural expression of primordial wakefulness. Here resides Padmasambhava in an indestructible bodily form transcending birth and death for as long as samsara continues and through which he incessantly brings benefit to beings through magical emanations of his body, speech and mind.

Dedication and Auspiciousness from Barchey Kunsel

Most vajrayana practices have verses at the end to dedicate the merit and invoke auspiciousness. Here are two famous verses from the Barchey Kunsel cycle of revelations, written down by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa:

By realizing the mandala
of the vidyadhara gurus,
May I and all the countless beings,
not a single one left out,
Be spontaneously perfected
in the four activities
And attain true liberation
in dharmakaya’s lucid realm.

May the root and lineage gurus
let their blessings fill our hearts.
May the yidams and dakinis,
like my shadow, remain close.
May the guardians of Dharma
clear away all hindrances.
May we have auspicious goodness,
siddhis common and supreme.
