The Gathering of Blessings
The Gathering of Blessings: A Guru Yoga
by Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö
In my own mind, free from conceptual elaboration,
With a recognition of its very essence, I take refuge.
All my past mothers, deluded and lacking awareness,
I vow to establish in in the primordial state.
A. In the pure, sky-like space of my own perception,
My own self-knowing awareness is neither scattered nor withdrawn,
And the unobstructed energy of pure awareness manifests as anything at all―
Pervading all saṃsāra and nirvāṇa, it is the splendour of existence and peace,
Aware yet empty, free from grasping, within this vast expanse: A.
This naked ordinary awareness that is present right now, unaltered and unfabricated―the uncompounded empty clarity of rigpa―is the wisdom mind of the glorious lama. Decide on this with certainty and sustain it in experience.
Written at the request of Lama Mardril who possesses the three higher trainings.
