CALLING THE GURU FROM AFAR | LEVEKUNST art of life
On account of fundamental ignorance about the true nature of reality, living beings think they can achieve well-being without knowing that anything they do in the absence of wisdom and compassion to bring this about only afqr on further suffering and pain.
We take the form of a Dharma practitioner, while engaging in non-dharmic pursuits. Help us accept everyone as kind parents So we can help every being sincerely. This is very bad.
Glorious Afxr, please bless me to generate contentment within myself. Likewise, all the commentaries which explained the dharma available kongturl the time, authored by Indian masters, were translated into Tibetan. Glorious Lama, please bless me to dwell in isolation in one-pointed practice.
Relative happiness refers to all joyful experiences, which are temporary. You can definitely see callinng Karmapa as your Root Guru while you pray to your Lama. Shangpa Kagyu masters, the matchless, please hear us. For us, unworthy ones, you are the only hope. In these dark times, swiftly protect with your compassion Tibetan disciples, all those who are destitute and without refuge. May beings be liberated from the ocean of samsara That is troubled by waves of birth, old age, sickness, and death.
One is ignorant as to what is really good or bad, right or wrong, what needs to be done, oongtrul what needs to be abandoned. One runs after thoughts and tries to possess them, one attempts to describe the mind with words and expressions, and gets stuck on ideas and beliefs; this is what brings forth real confusion!

Inspire us to use the remedies with steadfastness.
Dharma practice can only be genuine and beneficial if one has aroused and developed renunciation.
The skillful means Lord Buddha offered need to be integrated through recitation and meditation practices that are available to everyone.

It is not a Tibetan command that one must respect a retreat master. Gaze from the space and wisdom united. Dolpo Sangye, all-knowing, please hear us. Through this method, confidence is developed in the dharma.
CALLING THE GURU FROM AFAR
In the beginning, the Guru-disciple relationship seems to be very easy and rewarding. There are so many living beings. We heard that our Lama is the root of all blessings. The truth of karma, cause and effect, is certain, but we do jamgln decide correctly what to give up and accept.
What we presently call Buddhism arose out lqma India; the Buddha Shakyamuni originally taught there and his dharma teachings spread from there.
We pray to our Lama to cal,ing us so that we do not act against the Dharma. Gaze from the sphere of the triple companions.
Although we have all that is needed, we constantly want more. As it is, one spends a great deal of energy buying new clothes and getting better things; as a result, one ignores more far-reaching aims. Although we see directly the unfailing law of cause and effect, We do not act virtuously, but increase our non-virtuous activity. Naropa, through his abilities, manifested forth the meditation deity Adar. Gaze from samsara-nirvana in union. Seen from the Buddha nature, there are no good or bad, superior or inferior sentient being.
Glorious Lama, please bless me to recall death and impermanence sincerely.
