Lineage Prayers

A lineage prayer for the Heart-Essence of the Supreme Hayagrīva Emanation (rta mchog rol pa'i snying thig) cycle, received as an aural transmission (snyan brgyud) by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

A supplication to the lineage of the healing practice known as The Five-Deity Subjugative Hayagrīva (rta mgrin gnyen po lha lnga), a treasure originally revealed by Rigdzin Chokden Gönpo (1497–1557) and later rediscovered by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

A prayer to the lineage of Mitrayogin's Amitāyus practice, part of the Heart-Essence of the Mahāsiddha Mitra (grub chen mi tra'i snying thig) cycle, revealed as a pure vision by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

A lineage supplication for the Vajrasattva guru yoga known as Dorsem Ngön-ga (Abhirati Vajrasattva), which is part of the Longchen Nyingtik revelation.

This brief prayer to the lineage of The Vital Essence of the Activity Kīla of Aural Transmission (snyan brgyud phrin las phur pa’i gnad tig) was composed by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and supplemented by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

A supplication to the lineage of the Longchen Nyingtik's innermost secret guru practice, the Sealed Quintessence or Tikle Gyachen (thig le'i rgya can).



Jamgön Kongtrul composed this biographical prayer (rnam thar gsol 'debs) to Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo by extracting verses from a longer prayer to the masters of the Shangpa Kagyü lineage. For this edition, which is found in the Rinchen Terdzö, Jamyang Khyense Chökyi Lodrö composed three additional verses that refer to Khyentse Wangpo's parinirvāṇa and rebirth.

This prayer to Jamgön Kongtrul was composed by the master himself at the request of one of his disciples. It contains references to his life and the qualities he considers important, such as—to adopt the words of the text—the pure perception, with which he upheld all Buddha's teachings impartially.

Jamgön Kongtrul’s biographical prayer to Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa (1829–1870) details the master's life and legacy, especially his terma revelations and accomplishments. The text is included within the Rinchen Terdzö collection.

Jamyang Khyentse composed this prayer for perfecting the Seven Points of Mind Training (blo sbyong don bdun ma) when he was in the presence of the famous Atiśa statue at the Tārā Temple in Nyethang (snye thang). The section headings were added by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

This poetic prayer relates the Lotus Light (padma 'od) pure realm of Guru Padmasambhava to the four visions of Dzogchen practice and contains the aspiration that we may all be reborn there, to advance through the four stages of a vidyādhara and swiftly reach the level of the Lake-born Guru himself.

This brief supplication to the saviouress Tārā incorporates and expands upon the literal meaning of the syllables of her root mantra (oṃ tāre tuttāre ture svāhā).
