A Chariot for Knowledge-Holders, by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo

Guru Liberates-by-Sight

Om ah hung benza guru pema siddhi hung

Vast and indestructible
sphere of wakefulness
Joined with basic knowing’s
open space,
Vivid to the eyes, as splendid
rainbows, it appears,
Realm of natural magic,
Lotus Light.

Rainbow rays in vast expanse,
the nature manifest,
In boundless mansions,
visions on increase,
Dakas and dakinis,
the perfected knowing’s state,
Sings and dance as vajra chains
transcending thoughts.

In the center, buddha Boundless Light,
primordial,
Treasure of compassion,
Lotus-Holder,
And immortal Tötreng Tsal,
three kayas within one,
With sublime eight forms
to tame all needs.

In this meeting ground, a network
vast and magical,
Play of forms and aspects
beyond count,
May I and every being, infinite,
pervading space,
Take rebirth as soon
this life is gone.

May we through the knowledge-holders’
fourfold secret path
Quickly reach the Lotus
Guru’s level,
Ocean of the kayas and the wisdoms,
without bound,
Where others’ and my aims
     are self-fulfilled.

Translated for chanting in English, by Erik Pema Kunsang.
