"The wonderful beauty of prayer is
that the opening of our heart is as
natural as the opening of a flower.
To let a flower open and bloom it
is only necessary to let it be; so if
we simply are, if we become and
remain still and silent, our heart
cannot but be open, the Spirit
cannot but pour through into our
whole being. It is for this that we
have been created."
Dom John Main OSB (1926-1982)
long as space exists
And as long as beings endure
May I too remain
To dispel the misery of the world."
May I become
at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without protection
A guide for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those in need of light
A refuge for those in need of shelter
And a servant to all those in need.
- Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, from Ethics for a New Millenium
Thrangu Rinpoche's Prayer for the New Millennium
May all our defilements be dispelled completely
Allowing our goodness and happiness to flourish unceasingly
In the presence of altruism and wisdom in this living world
May all these become a cause for attaining enlightenment
Special Appeal from His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche April 5, 2002
To all my dear disciples:
Today I became aware that I had completely run out of the 10,000 refuge cards that my disciples in Taiwan printed for me some four hears ago! This means that I had the good fortune of giving refuge ordination to over 10,000 brothers and sisters since.
Now, I appeal to all those to whom I had given refuge ordination, and to all the others who had received teachings from me in the last four years to do something for me. I ask all of you to extend your love towards those who are undergoing tremendous pain, suffering, anguish and fear in the world. I then ask you to please recite green Tara mantra.
OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SVA HA.
If you can, I ask each of you to recite the Tara mantra 500,000 times. If this is too much, will each of you please say at least 300,000 times? I thank you very much, and I shall always keep you all in my humble prayers.
The Words of the Truth Pacifying the Dangers of Weapons
The following was translated by the incomparably kind Guru Lama Zopa Rinpoche, scribe Holly Ansett, at Kachoe Dechen Ling, Aptos, CA, USA on the 11 September 2001, on the day that World Trade Center in New York and Pentagon in Washington were attacked and many people killed and injured. ===
The Words of the Truth Pacifying the Dangers of Weapons
Om mani padme hum
Great loving Victorious (Maitreya Buddha), Sublime Compassion Eye looking one, Wrathful Victorious Hayagriva, Lord Pure Ethical Tara and so forth. Merely by hearing the holy name eliminates all the dangers. Object of refuge, nature of compassion, please pay attention!
The sentient beings of the quarrelling time, five degeneration sentient beings, The great ocean of evil karma and jealousy exploded, suffering by intensive fighting. Please make it dry by the strength of transcendental wisdom and compassion, By letting fall a great nectar rain of loving-kindness.
To the transcendental migratory beings whose hatred fire is blazing, By making fall the great nectar rain of loving kindness. With the recognition of each other like parents. Please bless to increase happiness and auspiciousness.
May the multitudes of the vicious evil spirits, Who by entering the mental continuum, Changes it instantly to the mind of asura. From now on may they never run in these areas (country/world).
I am requesting even all the sentient beings who have died in the war, Abandoned by the evil karma, cause and the result. Even after entered, born in the blissful field (Amitabha pure land) And lead all others in that pure land.
Please bless all those who born and die (samsaric beings) To have long life and to not have sicknesses, pacify all the quarrelling and fighting, Enjoy the life in ten virtues, rainfall at right times and to always have good harvests. All the habitat and inhabitants to be auspicious and increase.
By the ultimate reality that which is pure nature, And having ultimate reality, the cause and result, unbetrayable, And the compassionate Guru, mind seal Deity and rare sublime ones, May the pure extensive prayers be completed.
When there was unceasing war in Tibet, in Kham (Me Nyak) and nobody was able to create harmony, the Great Lord Yogi came to Kham and generated bodhichitta and just merely by saying these true words and sprinkling flowers all the vicious minds (jealousy and anger) all were completely pacified and the war that had been continuous, stopped. There was prosperity in the harvests and so forth. The country became auspicious and peaceful.
This is blessed vajra holy speech. This is one of the prayers of the Great Tantrika Tang Tong Gyalpo. The other prayers that he composed were to stop famine and epidemics. His Holiness Choegye Trichen Rinpoche, who is a Guru of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and also one of the main teachers of His Holiness Sakya Trizen, received the Sakya Lamdang teachings and initiations, including Dorje Phurba. His Holiness Choegye Trichen Rinpoche was invited to some part of Nepal by the Nepalese Government.
Rinpoche checked what could be most beneficial for them and what prayer was most needed to benefit them. It came out the best practice for them to do was these three prayers composed by Tang Tong Gyalpo. So then Rinpoche decided to give the oral transmission of these three prayers. That's how I found out about these prayers and I received the oral transmission from His Holiness Choegye Trichen Rinpoche.
Whatever merits have come from making this translation available may wherever this text is (whichever country) and also by reading this prayer, may all the peoples hearts be filled with loving kindness, bodhichitta and the thought to only benefit and not harm. May the sun of peace and happiness arise and may any wars that are happening stop immediately. May there be harmony, peace and may there never be war or violence again.

Let love stream forth into human hearts
May the Coming One return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
*THIS IS A SLIGHTLY ADAPTED WORDING OF THE GREAT INVOCATION. MEN AND WOMEN OF GOODWILL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE USING THIS INVOCATION IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. WILL YOU JOIN THEM IN USING THE INVOCATION EVERY DAY - WITH THOUGHT AND DEDICATION?
Excerpt from: Method, Wisdom and the Three Paths by Geshe Lhundrub Sopa
Question: What is the
role of prayer in Buddhism? Does Buddhism believe in prayer, and if so, since
Buddhists don't believe in a God, to whom do they pray?
Answer: In Buddhism, prayer
means some kind of wishing, an aspiration to have something good occur. In
this sense a prayer is a verbal wish. The prayers of buddhas and bodhisattvas
are mental and have great power. These beings have equal love and compassion
for all beings. Their prayer is to benefit all sentient beings. So when we
pray to them for help or guidance they have the power to influence us.
As well as these considerations, prayer produces a certain kind of buddha-result. Praying does not mean that personally you don't practice at all, that you just leave everything to Buddha. That is not the case. The buddhas have to do something and we have to do something. The buddhas cannot wash away our stains with water, like washing clothing. The root of misery and suffering cannot be extracted like a thorn from the foot. The buddhas can only show us how to pull out the thorn. The hand that pulls it out must be our own. Buddha cannot transplant his knowledge into our being. He is like a doctor who diagnoses our illnesses and prescribes the cure that we must follow through personal responsibility. If the patient does not take the medicine or follow the advice, the doctor cannot help, no matter how strong his medicines or excellent his skill. A doctor must give medicine to a patient who will take it and follow his advice in order that his efforts will be successful. If we take the medicine of Dharma as prescribed and observe the supportive advices, we can easily cure ourselves of the diseases of ignorance, attachment and the other obstacles to liberation, and also the obstacles to omniscience. To turn to the Dharma but then not to practice it is to be like a patient burdened by a huge bag of medicine while not taking any. Therefore Buddha said, "I have provided the medicine. It is up to you to take it."
