Accumulating Merit & Wisdom

Photo credit: Jana Kolarik

Through recitation of the sacred Yungdrung Bön texts, we accumulate both merit and wisdom. By making a commitment to recite a certain text every day or a specified number of times and then fulfilling that commitment, the power of our practice is amplified. Recitation of the sacred texts is also one of the thirteen Bön activities. See previous post:

As a support to the worldwide Yungdrung Bön community, Raven Cypress Wood has provided her translation of select Yungdrung Bön prayers on this website for the personal use of Yungdrung Bön practitioners. See the Publications page of this website at the link below for more information.


Enlightened Ones of the ten directions who appeared in the past,

Enlightened Ones of the ten directions who appear in the present,

Enlightened Ones of the ten directions who will appear in the future,

the Mind of the lama is the embodiment of all these Enlightened Ones of the three times.

To the embodiment of all the places of refuge, the root lama,

I pay homage, admit my wrongdoing, present offerings, and supplicate!

Please pacify all obstacles and guide me along the path of liberation!

Bestow your blessings that my wishes will be spontaneously fulfilled!”
