Supplication Prayer to H.H. 33rd Menri Trizin
“The omniscient wisdom of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions is condensed into a single essence in you, Highest One.
You carry out the enlightened activities of spreading the vast and profound teachings of Tönpa Shenrap.
To you, Lungtok Tenpé Nyima, I supplicate and pray.”
To the lama who is the embodiment of all of the Victors and spiritual masters,
who acts principally through the accomplishment of Bön for sentient beings who are as limitless as the sky,
I offer prostrations with my body, prostrating with my arms, legs and head!
I prostrate with my speech, chanting with a joyous and inspired melody!
I prostrate with my mind, prostrating with single-pointed motivation and devotion!
May the negative actions and defilements of my three doors become purified!”
