Manjushree God Prayer


GANG GI LO DRO DRIB NYI TRIN DRAL NYI TAR NAM DAG RAB SAL WEI
He who has the intuitive wisdom that disperses the clouds of the two obscurations, like the sun shedding a glorious light that is utterly pure.

He who understands all meanings whatsoever, of perfect realization, from whose heart emerges the lotus holding the books of the perfection of wisdom.

Those who live in Samsara are the prisoners of ignorance, afflicted by the darkness of suffering.

DRO TSOG KUN LA BU CHIG TAR TSE YEN LAG DRUG CHU YANG DEN SUNG.
Looking after all sentient beings with compassion, like a mother looking after an only child, you have a melodious voice of sixty tones.

DRUG TAR CHER DROG NYON MONG NYID LONG LE KYIi CHAG DROG DOL ZE CHING.
Roaring like a dragon, you wake people from the sleep of conflicting emotions, freeing one from the iron shackles of karma.
MA RIG MUN SEL DUG NGAL NYU GU JI NYED CHOD ZE RAL DRI NAM.
Dispelling the darkness of their ignorance, thus you weild the sword which cuts down the shoots of suffering.

DOD NE DAG CHING SA CHU THAR SON YON TEN LU ZOG GYAL SE THU WO KU.
Primordially pure, having reached the tenth Bodhisattva level the perfect body of highest qualities, the foremost son of the Buddhas.

CHU TRAG CHU DANG CHU NYI GYEN TRE DAG LO MUN SEL JAM PEI YANG LA DUD.
Adorned with the hundred and twelve ornaments (major and minor physical perfections of a Buddha), I bow down to you, Manjushree, please dispel the darkness of my mind.

OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI.
Recite, and then follow this with DHI.
(repeat DHI many times)

TSE DEN KYOD KYI KHEN RAB WO ZER GYI.
I beseech you with the loving kindness of your omniscient light rays

DAG LO TI MUG MUN PA RAB SAL NE.
To completely dispel the dark ignorance of my mind, thus giving me

KA DANG TEN CHO ZHUNG LUG TOG PA YI.
the intellectual courage and intelligence to understand the Teachings of the Buddha,

LO DRO POP PEI NANG WA TSAL DU SOL.
their elucidating treatises (Shastras) and commentaries.
