In the formless basic space of phenomena, the wisdom mind of the Ever Excellent;

In the infinite form kayas and pure lands of Great Bliss,

And in the arrayed Dakini continent of Oddiyana;

You who play in everlasting delight, Lord, please nurture us.

You, incomparable Kunzang Dechen Lingpa,

In order to tame sentient beings who cling to phenomena as permanent,

Displayed the dissolution of the composition of your form body.

We children disciples are tormented by this suffering.

Therefore, to dispel our devoted lamentations,

We request, from the vast space of wisdom compassion,

Please transform swiftly the display of your emanation,

And fulfill completely the wishes of sentient beings, we pray!

 

As requested from Assam by the students of the Holy Lama which was conveyed by Lama Sonam Tobgyal through a letter with a silk scarf, on the auspicious fifteenth day of the Second Lunar Month, I, Thrinley Norbu, immediately offered this prayer. May the purpose of this prayer be fulfilled exactly as it is wished!

And the fruit of the powerful yearning aspiration which has been continuously requested,

GEK MED DE LAK LHUN GYI DRUB GYUR CHIK
May it be easily and spontaneously accomplished without any hindrances!

Thus, the Light of the Teachings of the Ancient Translation Tradition, His Holiness Terton Kunzang Dechen Lingpa Rinpoche, perhaps to engage the students who only hold the mere sign of practitioner onto the path of Dharma, passed into Parinirvana as an aspect of his life and liberation. We, who live near Gorzam Chorten, at Tsepak Retreat, as soon as we heard the sad news from Kunkhyen Tsona Kyabgon, felt as if our hearts and lungs were shattered.  Not knowing what to say or do, this swift rebirth prayer, "The Melodious Conch with the Clockwise Swirl" arose in my mind without hindrance. On the next day, near Tawang, in my own cabin, my brother Tenzing Wangpo repeatedly requested it, I, a holder of the series of reincarnations of the Deity and Lama of Ngari, Yeshi Yod, a vagabond and a monk of the Shakyamuni's order, Richa Lhayod wrote this on the dawn of the auspicious first day of the second month of the Fire Dog Year and offered it with a silk scarf. May this be accomplished as exactly as wished!
