Throughout the ten directions of the immeasurable three thousand-fold universe,
are a variety of butter lamp goddesses.
Through the lighting of these bright offering lamps, the fire of the lamps clears away darkness and obscurations, and radiates throughout the vast, clear space of the sky.”
An extract from Raising a Victory Banner of Butter Lamps
Translation from the Tibetan by Raven Cypress Wood ©2017. A full translation of the prayer will be included in her forthcoming book detailing support for death and dying according to the Yungdrung Bön religious tradition.
