THIS TEXT IS CALLED: “THE RECITATION FOR THE MEDITATION OF THE GREAT COMPASSIONATE ONE FOR THE BENEFIT OF BEINGS AS VAST AS THE SKIES”. IT WAS COMPOSED BY THE MAHASIDDHA TANG TONG GYALPO, BORN IN 1361, AND BEARS THE BLESSING OF HIS SPEECH.
Complete Chenrezig Chant - When chanting this prayer we are making an earnest request, a sincere and heartfelt prayer on behalf of all sentient beings. Chenrezig may you hold all beings fast in your compassion until all sentient beings are established in the "pure realm of Buddhahood."While doing the Chenrezig prayer, we pray that all beings in the six realms may be established in the pure land of Chenrezig. Ultimately we are aiming toward liberation from the six realms of existence for all beings, including ourselves.Thus having prayed for the establishment of all beings in a pure realm, we pray that we ourselves may be of benefit to all living beings with as much strength and power as Chenrezig, in this and all our future births, throughout all of our different existences. We pray that we may be able to develop the qualities that Chenrezig developed, and having developed these qualities ourselves, we pray that we may be able to benefit beings by removing all obscurations and defilement's, just as Chenrezig does, with the six-syllable mantra (OM MANI PEME HUNG) spread in the ten directions. It is really a prayer that we ourselves will have the power to benefit all others.I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER A VERY SPECIAL “THANK YOU” TO VENERABLE LAMA KARMA SAMTEN AND HIS EARLY STUDENTS IN NEW ZEALAND FOR TRANSLATING THIS POWERFUL TEXT.THANKS TO H.E.
