All the Matter in the World

by Padmasambhava

All the matter of the world, living and not living,
Appear as objects to my eyes.
Let me rest in the appearance of things, without seeing them as things.
Empty clarity without fixation is the deity form.
I pray to my guru — naturally releasing empty appearance.

All the sounds of the world, pleasant or unpleasant,
Resound as objects in my ears.
Let me rest in silence in sound, inconceivable and inexpressible.
Silence in sound, without beginning or end, is the speech of the awakened.
I pray to my guru — naturally releasing sound-emptiness.

Whatever thoughts arise from the five poisons, emotional reactions,
Move as objects in my mind.
Let me rest, letting go of control, not awaiting or chasing them.
When I let movement settle naturally, it releases into true presence.
I pray to my guru — naturally releasing awareness.

Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche's commentary on the practice (A Teaching on Guru Rinpoche's Supplication That All Thoughts Be Self-Liberated) can be found here http://www.ktgrinpoche.org/guru_rinpoche.html
It includes a downloadable recording of the song (in English). Nice tune.


Edwards: You are a philosopher. Dr Johnson: I have tried too in my time to be a philosopher; but, I don't know how, cheerfulness was always breaking in.
