A Short Song of Practice

by Shabkar Tsokdruk Rangdrol


Namo Guru Majughoaya!

Dharmakya Samantabhadra, sambhogakya Vajradhara,


Supreme nirmakya, Lord of Sages, and the rest
Along with those who turn the Dharma-wheel for all,
My teachers, direct and indirectbefore you all, I prostrate.

Although I have nothing new to say, which hasnt been said before
By the victorious buddhas and their spiritual offspring,
The learned and accomplished masters of India and Tibet,
I shall sing a little on what they have taught, so listen well!

Leisure and fortune are hard to find,1 and death strikes quickly,2
Actions and their effects do not deceive,3 and theres no happiness in sasra.4

I take refuge in the Three Jewels, the sources of protection,5


And generate love, compassion, and the mind of bodhicitta.6

Nectar cascades from Vajrasattva, seated upon my crown,


To purify my illnesses, demons, harmful influences, and obscurations.7

I offer my body, my estate, and whatever virtues I have amassed to the deities:
Kindly accept them and bestow your blessings and accomplishment.8

Root Guru, who is the embodiment of all sources of refuge,


I supplicate you: bless me, I pray!9

Imagine and continually recall the Buddha,


Appearing very clearly in the space in front of you.10

The nature of mind is like space, primordially empty;


Rest in this empty cognizance without the slightest grasping.11

All that appears within the sky of mind is like a rainbow;


Understand the unity of appearance and emptiness to be illusory.12

Meditate upon your physical body as the form of the deityappearing yet empty;
And your speech as the mantra to be recitedaudible yet empty.13

1
Clearly visualize A and HA within the three channels and the chakras,
And increase the blissful warmth by holding the vase-breath.14

From time to time, be diligent in purifying the different realms,

To conclude, seal your practice with prayers of dedication and aspiration.

If you are able to give up lifes distraction and practice in isolation


The leisure and fortune you have won will be made truly meaningful.

May this merit cause all my fortunate disciples


To practise the Dharma wholeheartedly.

May virtue and excellence abound. This is the blessed speech of the Lord of Refuge,
Shabkar.
