Reduce All To One (Flavor, that is!)

Six Session Yoga (Ngulchu Jeydrung)


I take safe direction wholeheartedly from the Three Supreme Gems!


I shall free all wandering beings from suffering

and secure them in everlasting bliss!


To reach full enlightenment for their sake,

I reaffirm my Bodhicitta aim

and shall train myself in Bodhisattva behavior.


In the sky before me, on a throne, a lotus, a sun and a moon,

sits my root Guru, Vajradhara, ruler of the all-pervasive,

with blue-colored body, holding vajra and bell,

embracing Dhatu-ishvari, and sporting with co-arising bliss.


Your body's three spots are marked with three syllables.

Light from the HUM invites the beings for deep awareness:

You become of one taste!


I prostrate at your lotus feet, Vajradhara,

and present you with an ocean of clouds of outer, inner

and hidden offerings.

I present you also with the peerless offerings of Samantabhadra:

Including Mount Meru, their island-worlds, the precious fixtures

of royalty, treasure vases, suns and moons.


All supreme and common actual attainments, without exception,

follow upon correctly relating to you, my Guardian, in a healthy manner.

Seeing this, I fully devote my body, and even my life:

Inspire me to practice what only will please you.


Requested like this, my guru alights on the crown of my head;

We merge, and become inseparably one taste.

Now I arise as Vajrasattva, holding vajra and bell,

embracing a Bhagavati, and sporting with co-arising bliss!


Without sense of a loss, I give, for the sake of my mothers,

my land, my body and wealth, and the network of my

constructive acts throughout the three times.

I shall never transgress, though my life be at stake,

the bounds prescribed by pratimoksha, bodhisattva,

or tantric vows.


I shall fully uphold the scriptural and realized Dharma

gathered in the three sutras and four tantra sets.

I shall totally liberate wandering beings with skillful means,


I dedicate this constructive act for the deeds and prayers

of the Blissfully Gone Buddhas and their spiritual offspring

throughout the three times to be fulfilled,

and for the hallowed Dharma to be upheld.


By inspiration from the supreme Triple Gem

and the force of infallible dependent arising,

may all my excellent prayers come true

so that I swiftly attain the state of a Buddha!
