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.
