Dharma Materials: Guru Yoga of Je Tsong Khapa

From Tushita's hundreds of gods' Protector' heart
To tip of this fresh pure white heaped curd-like cloud,
O Lozang Dragpa, Dharma's Omniscient King,
Pray come to this place with your disciples.

In space ahead on lion throne, lotus and moon,
Venerable Gurus, smile brightly with delight,
Pray stay hundreds of aeons to spread doctrine
As supreme merit field for my mind of faith.

Your wisdom mind sees full range of existence,
Your eloquent speech adorns fortunate ears,
Your beauteous body famed glory outstanding.
Homage to you worthwhile to think of, hear and see.

Pleasant off'rings of water, various flowers,
Fragrant incense, light, perfume and so on,
Oceans of off'rings, set out and envisioned
Offered up to you, supreme field of merit.

Non-virtue committed with body, speech and mind
Which I have heaped up since beginningless time,
Especially what has contradicted three vows,
Each I confess from my heart with strong regret.

In time of strife you strove to learn and practice,
Shunned eight mundane concerns, made life essenceful.
O Protector, from depths of our hearts
We rejoice in your pow'rful great deeds.

Venerable Gurus, from love and wisdom
Clouds densely massed in you Dharmakaya sky
Pray loose a rain of vast profound Dharma
On fields of disciples just as needed.

May whate'er virtue that I've here gathered
Bring benefit to all beings and Doctrine
And may it make Ven'rable Lozang Dragpa's
Essence Teachings specially shine forever.

MIG ME TSE WAY TER CHEN CHEN RE SIG
Objectless compassion, Chenrezig,
DRI ME KHYEN PAY WANG PO JAM PEL YANG
Lord of stainless wisdom, Manjushri,
DU PUNG MA LU JOM TZE SANG WAY DAG
Conquering Mara's hordes, Lord of Secrets (Vajrapani),
GANG CHEN KE PAY TSUG GYEN TSONG KHA PA
Snow Land's sages' crown jewel, Tsong Khapa,
LO ZANG DRAG PAY ZHAB LA SOL WA DEB
Lozang Dragpa, at your feet I pray.

O glorious and precious root Guru
Pray take seat of lotus at my heart
Caring for me in your great kindness
Grant attainments of body, speech and mind.

O glorious and precious root Guru,
Pray take seat of lotus at my heart
Caring for me in your great kindness
Grant attainments, common and supreme.

O glorious and precious root Guru
Pray take seat of lotus at my heart
Caring for me in your great kindness
Until supreme awak'ning remain steadfast.

In all lives actually cared for by a Master
In supreme way of the Conqueror Tsong Khapa
May I ne'er turn back for even a moment
From just that excellent path praised by Buddha.
