Lineage Prayers


In this arrangement of the Longchen Nyingtik transference (phowa), Adzom Drukpa adds some pithy advice exhorting all those who have not yet accomplished Dzogchen to take this practice to heart and train in it regularly.

This arrangement integrates the Longchen Nyingtik's practice of transference, or phowa, with elements from the same tradition's preliminary practices. The text was first compiled for the sake of new retreatants at Serdrang Monastery in Nepal.

Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo elaborates on the fundamental teachings of Jigme Lingpa by providing 1) transference instructions for someone who has recently died, 2) transference instructions as part of the ongoing ritual for guiding the deceased, and 3) instructions for the living.

This short guide can be read aloud in the presence of the dead and dying. It begins by explaining the truth of the person's situation, that they have passed away, then offers citations from the sūtras, encourages them to aim for Sukhāvatī, and finally guides them in a practice of transference (phowa).

This compilation, which supplements the root text of the transference (phowa) practice from the Heart-Essence of the Vast Expanse (Longchen Nyingtik) with additional prayers, is extracted from Patrul Rinpoche's famous The Words of My Perfect Teacher (kun bzang bla ma'i zhal lung).
