A Concise Prayer for a Swift Return

by Khenpo Lodro Donyod Rinpoche

August 22, 2004

Om Soti

Eradicator of all fears, grantor of the unimpeded fulfillment of all wishes,
Our one mother Tara, pray heed this call!
Please manifest your enlightened activity, so that the lama's supreme emanation,
Our one father, the radiant sun [of beings], will swiftly dawn again!

Thus, the most humble disciple of the protector himself, Lodro Donyod, a khenpo merely in name, has one-pointedly prayed.

These provisional translations were attempted by Ngodup T. Burkhar and Eric Triebelhorn.
