A prayer for the lunar eclipse

Recommended Posts

A friend recently shared this beautiful prayer with me, I hope you enjoy it as well:


may you be graced with the visual blessings of these extraordinary gurus

may your heart open further and embrace all that is - AS IT IS

may this be your lunar eclipse prayer

may this aspiration prayer pour its nectar into the crown of your being

may you discover and reside in the nature of your own mind

may you trust your gifts from self-arising awareness

may it bring you tears




this a famous Dzogchen aspiration prayer from the Gongpa Zangthal. It is to be recited especially during a solar or lunar eclipse, an earthquake or at the solstices. This aspiration prayer comes from the Dzogchen tantra called the Tantra of the Great Perfection which Shows the Penetrating Wisdom of Samantabhadra. In Tibetan, the short title of this tantra is Gongpa Zangthal Gyi Gyü, which means “The Tantra of Penetrating Wisdom” or “The Tantra of Transcendent Intention.”
