The Meditation and Recitations of the Great Compassionate One

for the Benefit of Beings as Limitless as Space
by Mahasiddha Thangtong Gyalpo and bears the blessing of his speech.
Refuge and Bodhicitta (three times)
In the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, I go for refuge until Bodhi.
By the merit of practice may I Reach buddhahood to help all beings.
Visualization
On my head and that of all beings, Is a white lotus and moon on which, A HRI transforms into
Chenrezig, White, radiating five colored lights. He is smiling, with warm, caring eyes. With four
arms: two joined in prayer, while two Hold crystal mala and white lotus. He is arrayed with silks
and jewels, With a deer skin over his shoulder. His head is crowned with Amitabha, His two feet
in vajra asana, A stainless moon supporting his back. He is the essence of our refuge.
Devotional Prayer (three times)
Faultless lord of white color, Crowned with a perfect buddha,
And eyes of warm tenderness: Chenrezig, I bow to you.
A Prayer of the Six Syllable Mantra
I pray to you lama Chenrezig, I pray to you yidam Chenrezig.
I pray to you sublime Chenrezig, I pray to protector Chenrezig.
I pray to lord of love Chenrezig, Great Buddha, hold us with compassion.
For beings who have been wandering countless times in endless samsara,
Enduring unbearable torments, There is no protector besides you.

There they suffer from both heat and cold, May they be reborn in your presence.

Thus may all be freed from impure realms, And may this mantra spread everywhere.
By the power of praying to you, May all beings heed karma and strive
To act purely and practice Dharma For the benefit of all beings.
Becoming Aware Of One's Identical Nature With Chenrezig
From praying like this one-pointedly, The noble one's form radiates light,
Cleansing karmic appearance and mind, The outer world becomes Dewachen,
The body, speech, and mind of beings Become Chenrezig: the union of
Appearance, sound, and mind with voidness.

All bodies and forms are his body, All sounds the song of six syllables, All thoughts the vast
expanse of Jnana.
