Sample text

Because of all this, I feel my heart breaking in sorrow, And I pray now to all the buddhas, For the beings of this degenerate age, and Especially those like me, who just bear the likeness of practitioners: Longchenpa, father of ours, look on us with all your compassion! This child has no one to rely on now but you. Idling my time away-happy, sufferingWhatever happens to me, I am in your hands. Lord, in the palace of the space of immaculate great bliss, May I remain one with you, always and forever!

In the prime of youth, the mind is immature. When we come of age, we're distracted by busyness. Once old age and infirmity set in, We may think about the real dharma, but then it's far too late: Longchenpa, father of mine, look on me with all your compassion! I wish to stay on here, but it's out of my control; I wish to bring my possessions, but I cannot take a thing; I wish for the comfort of companions, but I have to go alone. Sooner or later I will go on to the next world, that's for sure: Longchenpa, father of mine, look on me with all your compassion!

To be with him gave us a joy unlike any other. As long as Ilive, I shall always be grateful for the hours I spent with him, and I still marvel at his extraordinary power to clarify even the subtlest detail of the Dzogchen teachings, the priceless advice he would give on how to teach, his uncanny gift for communicating the view and the very heart essence of the teachings, and his ability to gather every shade of understanding on any particular topic, so that everything clicked and fell into place.
