Guru Yoga Prayer
Translations | Awareness, Training

Treasured teacher, I pray to you.

Give me energy so that belief in self falls away.

Give me energy so that I see through life’s illusions.

Give me energy so that reactive thinking comes to an end.

Give me energy so that I know mind has no beginning.

Give me energy so that confusion resolves itself.

Give me energy so that whatever arises is experience beyond words.

— Bengar Jampal Zangpo

This is the Guru Yoga Prayer from Foundation Practices (Ngöndro).
