“Fearlessly opening the door to a hundred treasuries of the heart of the Buddha’s stainless teachings,
Having the superior capacity of Mawé Senge,
Supreme guide to the self-radiant, self-arising, primordially pure awareness,
To Manga Werzhi* I pray.”
~Homage written in honor of Shardza Rinpoche, and often placed at the conclusion of the commonly used chöd practice written by him entitled, “Giving the Body, the Full Laughter of the Khandro.”
*Zhang Zhung name for Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen Rinpoche.
