- Gyalse Shenpen Thaye Özer
Having definitively realized the altruistic mind of bodhicitta,
The single path taken by the all the heirs of the victorious,
You reveal it to limitless numbers of beings—
Most kind and gracious guru, to you I pray.
Texts by the great monk-scholar Gyalse Shenpen Thaye (rgyal sras gzhan phan mtha' yas, 1800–1855):
A brief presentation of the five aggregates (skandha) and their subdivisions, together with an even more concise enumeration of the twelve sources (āyatana) and eighteen elements (dhātu).
Two verses: the first a prayer to Atiśa as an emanation of Padmasambhava and the second an aspiration for rebirth in the pure land of great bliss.
In this rare commentary on the Mountain Incense-Smoke Offering (ri bo bsangs mchod), Gyalse Shenpen Thaye explains the historical origins of the practice and then offers a word-by-word interpretation of Lhatsün Namkha Jigme's revelation.
