“As Guru Rinpoche was leaving Tibet for the cannibal island of Ngayab Ling, Yeshé Tsogyal recited this prayer to him. Her last direct prayer is profound and full of the blessings of her longing. Although ultimately Guru Rinpoché and Yeshé Tsogyal have no separation, on a relative historical level, these were her last words uttered with very intense and powerful intention and aspiration. The prayer was revealed as a terma (dharma treasure) by the tertön (treasure revealer) Pema Lingpa in fifth-century Tibet. All Nyingma practitioners and followers of Guru Rinpoché and Yeshé Tsogyal recite this prayer. His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoché recited this prayer at the end of each sadhana session. Prayer is a very important part of our practice. We are trying to accomplish enlightenment in this lifetime. But if we don’t completely reach the result based on our own ability, making prayers of aspiration forms a connection to continue our goal after this lifetime, in the bardo, and throughout future lifetimes – it has that great power. Prayer connects us with the blessings of the deity. Through the accumulation of merit and wisdom by making prayers of aspiration, sooner or later our goals reach fruition.” – Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
