Seven-Line Prayer

"The Seven-Line Prayer carries the essence of all Guru Rinpoche's blessings. As Guru Rinpoche said: ´To this very prayer, you can give your whole mind, in devotion.` 

He also said: ´When a disciple calls upon me with yearning devotion, and with the sweet-sounding song of the Seven-Line Prayer, I shall come straightaway from Zangdopalri, like a mother who cannot resist the call of her child.` 

The Seven-Line Prayer is to be found in all of the teachings of Guru Rinpoche revealed by the hundred and eight major and one thousand minor tertons, or treasure-discoverers. So it is a prayer thatis most extraordinary, easy to practice, and replete with immense blessings.” ... 

Guru Yoga, an oral Teaching by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

In the land of Uddiyana’s northwest border,
On the pistils of a Lotus flower’s stem,
You have reached the marvel of the supreme siddhi,
And became known by the name the Lotus-Born.
With surrounding circles of many dakinis,
In your footsteps I will reach accomplishment.
Please approach in order to bestow your blessings.
Guru Padma Siddhi Hung
