Immediately the moment of waking up, don’t go anywhere, just sit up straight in the bed and sing from your heart. Invoke the timeless guru from within to inspire this mind and everyone who you connect with today.
Lotus Guru, hosts of dakas and dakinis,
All are dancing,
Voicing mantra tunes and songs in the symbolic language,
Minds in the awakened state, the essence of the natural knowing,
Turned towards me,
With the sounds of bells and hand drums,
They appear in awesome splendor,
Right before us in the sky.
Lord Guru, hosts of dakinis,
Look on me with your kind, loving eyes.
Right now the beings of the three realms
In mindlessness they all are asleep.
Awake, they roam in their blinded states.
Your yogi child who sees self-knowing mind
Shall lead to the celestial realms
All mother beings of the six types.
So father, I shall go where you are,
And not leave thought, word and deed indolent.
To be sure I will hear, think and train;
Four sessions shall be cores in my life.
While here in this delightful retreat,
I will reach others’ aim and my own.
Lord guru, hosts of dakinis,
Be kind to bless my triple doors.
The dakas and dakinis are gods and goddess within the subtle channels in your body. They dance, play music and liberate emotions as emotion arise. They are the playful expressions of natural mind, your smile and shine, the sparkle in your eyes.
All the beings from the three realms, all what we can see, hear and think of, whoever they are, share a closeness. We are family because we have the same basic nature. We, children in the yogi family, aim at seeing what we really are, self-knowing mind. Celestial realms means that the habit to make each moment so solid and serious has melted away, not for a few moments, but for a very long time. Everyone who feel and perceive are also family because we have been each others mother and father, sister and brother, lover and friend. We are always close, and have always been, without any exception. No one is excluded.
Father here means already fully enlightened, and there I’m heading with all my family. In order for that to happen, I need to use the right methods and insights to be a master of inner freedom in thought, word and deed.
At the end of singing, let be in a state that is a natural as possible.
This is a short and simple explanation. There are deeper levels in this song, so if you have interest, please find someone to guide you deeper.
