Du Sum Sangye: Prayer to Guru Rinpoche for Removing Obstacles and Fulfilling Wishes

As we hear news today of the devastating earthquake in Nepal, we would like to share a few prayers to Guru Rinpoche (also called Padmasambhava) that can be helpful in the face of this kind of heartbreaking situation.

Guru Rinpoche
Guru Rinpoche – Padmasambhava – in Dharamsala Tsuglakhang

The first is an excerpt from Sampa Lhundrup, Guru Rinpoche’s Wish Fulfilling Prayer: 

When obstacles arise in earth, water, fire and air,
To threaten these illusory bodies of ours with destruction,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, with the goddesses of the four elements,
You will harmonize the elements into their natural state- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

The second prayer is a short one commonly called Du Sum Sangye.

Prayer to Guru Rinpoche for Removing Obstacles and Fulfilling Wishes

Dusum sanggyay guru rinpoche
Ngodrup kundak dewa chenpoi shap
Barche kunsel dudul drakpo tsal
Solwa debso jyingyi laptu sol
Chinang sangwai barche shiwa dang
Sampa lhungyi druppar jyingyi lob

Guru Rinpoche, the embodiment of the Buddha of past, present and future,
Guru of Great Bliss, the lord of all accomplishments,
Wrathful Power, the one who dispels all hindrances and subdues negativity,
Grant your blessings, we pray!
May all outer, inner, and secret obstacles be removed, and may all our aspirations be fulfilled.

This is a terma revealed by Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa.

It can also be helpful to pray Guru Rinpoches’s mantra:

Om ah hung benza guru pema siddhi hung

And, these:

Avalokiteshvara’s mantra: Om mani padme hung

Buddha Shakyamuni’s mantra: Om muni muni maha muniye soha

Our prayers and love with the people of Nepal and all the affected areas,

Lobsang and Yolanda
