Great Loving Victorious One, Maitreya Buddha,
Transcendentally Sublime, Compassionately Gazing Chenresig,
Wrathful Victorious Hayagriva,
Fully Accomplished Totally Pure Tara and so forth,
Merely hearing your holy names eliminates all dangers,
Objects of Refuge in the nature of compassion, please pay attention!

When the sentient beings of this time of quarreling and five degenerations,
Through the explosion of the great ocean of evil karma and jealousy,
Are tormented by the intensive suffering of fighting and quarreling,
Please dry this up by the power of transcendental wisdom and compassion.

By letting a great rain of the nectar of loving-kindness fall upon us migratory beings,
Who are engulfed in the conflagration of hatred fire,
Please grant blessings for us to recognize each other as our father and mother,
And increase happiness and auspiciousness.

May the multitudes of the vicious evil spirits
Who enter the mental continuum and
Change it instantly to the mind of asura,
From now on, never run into this area, this country, and this world!

I now pray for all the sentient beings who died in wars,
To abandon from this time immediately,
all evil karmas with their cause and effect,
And be reborn in the Blissful Field of Sukhavati
And then lead all others to that Pure Land.

Please bless all Samsaric beings
Who are suffering from the cycle of birth and death,
To have long life, good health, and pacify all quarreling and fighting.
May all beings possess the ten virtues, have rainfall in season,
Always enjoy good harvest, and for all dwellings and their inhabitants,
Always to have auspiciousness, and may such blessings increase!

Through the ultimate reality whose nature is pure,
And by all phenomena whose nature is ultimate reality,
By which cause and effect are undeniable,
By the compassion of my guru, Mind-Seal Deity, and Rare Sublime Ones,
May these pure extensive prayers be completed.


Through the merits gained from reciting this prayer:
May it cause all the peoples' hearts to be filled with loving-kindness,
bodhicitta, 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 violence again.


[When there was civil strife and warfare in Kham, and all efforts at peacemaking had failed, the great yogi Thangtong Gyalpo came. Just by saying these words and sprinkling flowers, the minds of those blinded by jealousy and anger were completely pacified, and the war ceased. Therefore, this is blessed vajra speech. The above was translated by Zopa Rinpoche in September 2001 and edited by Lama Thubten Namdrol in November 2002.]

Many knowing is there by calling ourselves Buddhists, while taking own delusion for real.

Claiming to be Buddhists and spreading afflictions like candies around. Strong clinging to own teachings like the teaching itself is solid or the Ultimate truth.
How can there be peace in divisive mind? When that what is only empty display of "own mind" is taken for the truth?

Fools see mistakes through deluded perception like "outside" Bodhisattvas. Wise purify "own mind".

No any peace can be there when we take own conceptualizations or ideas as the truth and sow that rubbish in interdependency. Our Buddha nature remains hidden when we stick in conceptualization.

May the nectar of loving kindness melt the solid delusions.
May the power of this precious prayer cut through creations of delusion. :buddha1:

When external object and own perception are freed and purified, harmony is naturally beyond conceptualization, in which such harmony cannot be find. I see in the word harmony: peace in which afflictions by distorted perception are not present. :namaste:

I just re-read this prayer and I read it with new eyes.
I bet I could keep doing that, too. This one is a keeper Drolma, thanks.
