Meditation and Recitation to Pacify Gyalpo Spirits and Harmful Influences

by Jigme Lingpa


སྐྱབས་འགྲོ་སེམས་བསྐྱེད་ལན་གསུམ། །

Recite verses of taking refuge and generating bodhicitta, three times each.

རང་གི་སྙིང་ཁར་རྟ་མགྲིན་དམར། །

In my heart is the red Hayagrīva.

ཕྱག་གཡས་ཐོད་དབྱུག་གཡོན་སྡིགས་མཛུབ། །

chak yé tö yuk yön dik dzub

In his right hand he holds a skull-mace and his left is in the threatening mudrā.

ཞལ་རྔམ་དབུ་གཙུག་རྟ་མགོ་མཚེར། །

zhal ngam u tsuk ta go tser

Above his ferocious face is a neighing horse head.

པད་ཉིའི་གདན་ལ་དོར་སྟབས་བཞུགས། །

He stands on a lotus and sun-disk seat, in the champion’s posture.

སྤྱི་བོར་ཀརྨ་ཐོད་ཕྲེང་རྩལ། །

Above his head is Tötreng Tsal of the karma family,

ཁྲོ་འཛུམ་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཕུར་བུ་བསྣམས། །

tro dzum dorjé purbu nam

Smiling wrathfully and holding a vajra and kīla.

བླ་མ་ཡི་དམ་གཉིས་མེད་ལ། །

lama yidam nyimé la

Recognizing the indivisibility of the guru and yidam deity,

མོས་གུས་དྲག་པོས་གསོལ་བ་འདེབས། །

mögü drakpö solwa deb

I pray with fervent devotion:

ནད་གདོན་ཞི་བར་བྱིན་གྱིས་རློབས། །

nedön zhiwar jingyi lob

Bless me, so that all diseases and harmful influences may be pacified!


Pray in this way, and then recite:

ཨོཾ་ཨཱཿཧཱུྃ། མ་ཧཱ་གུ་རུ་ཧྱ་གྷྲི་ཝ་ཧཱུྃ་ཕཊ྄༔

om ah hung maha guru hayagriva hung pé

oṃ āḥ hūṃ mahā-guru hayagrīva hūṃ phaṭ


Recite the mantra with one-pointed devotion as much as you can; a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand or a hundred thousand times.
