MADAK NOCHU MAHAKALA Prayer
**Note** at 4:51 in the video (near the end) starts original music by H.H. Karmapa
To the Victorious One, the wish fulfilling tree of awareness The Dharma, which produces all desired qualities and the Sangha of the Lotus Lake, the great deity I continually go for refuge
Beyond subject and object, free from tangible limitations all phenomena equally valid in selflessness I assume the enlightened attitude whose uncreated emptiness and compassion are indistinguishable.
May All Beings Always be Happy free from various causes and results of suffering, uninterruptedly enjoy pure happiness and experience that equanimity which is free from the eight concerns.
The world and its beings are purified in Shunyata. From Shunyata winds and fires of transcending knowledge rise. Five-fold flesh and five-fold nectars placed in a kapala cup on a hearth of skulls. By wind and fire this nectar of Samaya-bonds is boiled bright invoking and becoming Jnana Amrita, wisdom nectar. With the syllables OM AH HUM blessings descend, Supreme in taste and color. The Gurus, root and lineage, Yidams, Deities, Viras, Dakinis and Dharmapalas are invoked and gather like the clouds make offerings to my Root Guru
Base audio recorded in late August 2001 at Karma Choeling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery near Auckland, NZ. led by Ven. Lama Karma Samten. New video just recently recorded.
I would like to offer a special “Thank You” to Ven. Lama Samten and his early students in New Zealand for translating this powerful text.
Also thanks to Tsem Tulku Rinpoche's website for the fine Buddhist artwork
And especially to HH Karmapa
