SOFT-SPOKEN GUIDE OF DAZZLING MAJESTRY & FEROCIOUS ABANDON

In TANTRIC POETRY by Pema Dragpa1 Comment

Homage to the sole protector, Wish-fulfilling vase of goodness. Reliable Guide who knows. Dazzling King of utter beauty. Ferocious Destroyer of all hesitation. Hear our longing cries for help.
Precious, supreme bhikkhu. Of soft words and gentle gestures. Careful steps and immediate attention. Your hands reach out for us. Every time we trip up and begin to fall again.
