Supplication to Patriarch Milarepa

Yutang Lin


Solid and unwaiving faith in Guru, who could compare with?
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with solid and unwaiving faith!

Tolerated suffering and tortures, no one could have reached!
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with patience and tolerance!

Impermanence and karmic fruits, constantly aware and in fear of!
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with diligence born of such awareness!

Clothing and food all discarded, and lived in caves to practice Tantra!
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with renunciation and perseverance!

Flying in sky and passing through rocks had all been realized!
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with realizations of enlightenment!

Songs on the path and lineage followers passed down through ages!
Patriarch Milarepa, bless me with unending salvation of sentient beings!
