Prayers and Practices

This daily 'hand-clapping' (thal rdeb) practice of the lion-faced ḍākinī Siṃhamukhā/Siṃhavaktrā (seng gdong ma) is particularly associated with the elimination of adversity, threats and dangers.

This short daily sādhana of Bhurkuṃkūṭa (sme brtsegs) includes a simple visualization and mantra recitation. The practice is particularly associated with the purification of tantric commitments, or samaya.

A short prayer to the three main stūpas of the Kathmandu Valley, i.e., Svayambhūnāth (known to Tibetans as Pakpa Shingkun), Boudhanāth (known to Tibetans as Jarung Khashor) and Namo Buddha.

As Dudjom Rinpoche explains in the colophon, he revealed this practice in 1936. He had fallen sick and his disciple Trulshik Pawo Dorje (1876–1962) performed a hundred feast offerings and fulfilment practices on his behalf. Early the next morning, Dudjom Rinpoche had a dream in which a woman spoke these words; he wrote them down, and the following day his illness disappeared completely.

As the title implies, Dudjom Rinpoche Jikdral Yeshe Dorje arranged the text of Lhatsün Namkha Jikme's Mountain Smoke Offering (ri bo bsang mchod) for regular recitation by adding verses for taking refuge, generating bodhicitta, the seven-branch practice and self-visualization at the beginning, and verses of dedication at the end.
