SECRET RIGPA GURU YOGA PRACTICE
Khenchen Lama Rinpoche’s Lineage Tree
RANGRIG LAMI SANGDRUD SECRET RIGPA GURU YOGA PRACTICE
Refuge and Bodhichitta:
Sangye chosdang stokkyi chognram la!
In the supreme Buddha ,Dharma, and assembly,
Shungchub vardu dagni kyabsu chi!
I take refuge until attaining enlightenment.
Dakgi jinsog gyipai sonam kyis!
Through the merit of practicing generosity and so on,
Drola phanchyir sanggys drubpar shok!
May I attain Buddhahood in order to benefit beings.
The Seven Line Prayer:
In the northwest of the land of Orgyen,
In the heart of a lotus flower,
Endowed with the most marvelous attainments, You are renowned as the lotusborn, Surrounded by many hosts of dakinis. Following in your footsteps
I pray to you: Come and bless me with your grace!
GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUNG.
Seven Limb Prayer:
Whatever merit I have gathered through prostrations, offerings, confession, rejoicing, requesting, and praying—for the sake of the enlightenment of all sentient beings,
all this I dedicate.
Do this towards all you see:
Outside, inside, environment and beings, all things
Whilst seeing them, without grasping, remain.
This freedom from the trap of duality, subjectobject clinging,
Is the very form of the deity—luminous and empty.
To this lama, the very selfliberation of desire and attachment, we pray! To the Lotusborn Guru of Orgyen, we pray!
Do this towards all that you hear:
All sounds, grasped as sweet or harsh,
Whilst hearing them, empty, without afterthought, remain. This empty sound, with no beginning and no end,
Is the speech of the victorious ones.
To this empty sound, the speech of all the Buddhas, we pray! To the Lotus born Guru of Orgyen, we pray!
Do this towards all that stirs in the mind:
Whatever thoughts and emotions of the five poisons arise, Don’t invite them, don’t chase after them,
Don’t let mind fabricate or contrive:
Simply allowing them to settle in the face of their own arising, Is liberation into the Dharmakaya.
To this lama, rigpa’s self liberation, we pray!
To the Lotus born Guru of Orgyen, we pray!
Thus, outwardly purify appearances of their allure; Inwardly, free mind from grasping;
And, by the self recognition of luminosity,
May the compassion of all the Sugatas of past, present and future Inspire and bless beings like us with self liberation!

May all be auspicious for these victorious teachings to spread, and pervade the universe!
