Aspiration for the Well-Being of Tibet

Aspiration for the Well-Being of Tibet by Jamgön Lodrö Thaye

Undeceiving sources of refuge, three jewels and three roots;
Especially Avalokita, protector of the Land of Snow;
Noble lady Tara; Guru Padmakara:
I pray to you. Consider your pledges and promises.
Grant your blessings that my aspirations be fulfilled.

Through the incorrect thoughts and actions of beings in degenerate times
And turmoil of the outer and inner elements,
There are new human and animal diseases.
We are struck by planets, naga, gyalpos, and evil bhutas;
Blight, frost, hail, and poor harvests; war and fightings;
Uneven rainfall, blizzards, destruction by voles and rats,
Earthquakes, fire, danger from the four elements;
And, in particular, invasions that threaten the dharma.

May all such things that menace this Land of Snow
Be quickly pacified and eradicated.
May all beings, human and non-human,
Naturally generate precious bodhicitta
And be free from malevolent thoughts and actions.
May they love one another.
May all of Tibet be filled with joy, well-being, and wealth.
May the buddhadharma spread, flourish, and long remain.

Through the power of the truth of the three roots, buddhas, and bodhisattvas;
The power of all the roots of virtue in samsara and nirvana;
And the power of our pure benevolence,
May what we have prayed and wished for be accomplished.

The lord guru Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo said to me, “Because of the great uncertainty of the present time, I pray six times each day for the well-being of Tibet. It is important that you do as well.” In accordance with that command, I wrote this to remind me to do so.

This was written by Jamgön Lodrö Thaye in Tsadra Rinchen Drak in the morning of an auspicious conjunction during the waxing phase of the month Gyal. Yathasiddhiratsu.

    Dear,Friend
    BodhGaya is a city in Gaya district in the Indian state of Bihar. It is famous for being the place of Buddha’s

    attainment of Enlightenment.For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites

    related to the life of Gautama Buddha, the other three being Kushinagar, Lumbini, and Sarnath. In 2002,

    Mahabodhi Temple, located in Bodh Gaya, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”Bodh Gaya is the place

    where Gautama Buddha attained unsurpassed, supreme Enlightenment. It is a place which should be visited

    or seen by a person of devotion and which would cause awareness and apprehension of the nature of

    impermanence”.”Here on this seat my body may shrivel up, my skin, my bones, my flesh may dissolve, but my

    body will not move from this seat until I have attained Enlightenment, so difficult to obtain in the course of

    many kalpas”.
