From the blossoming lotus of devotion, at the centre of my heart,
Rise up, O compassionate master, my only refuge!
I am plagued by past actions and turbulent emotions:
To protect me in my misfortune
Remain as the jewel-ornament on the crown of my head, the mandala of great bliss,
Arousing all my mindfulness and awareness, I pray!
prayer to invoke the presence of the master - jikmé lingpa
