4. THE INTERMEDIATE YOGACARYA SIX - SESSION GURU YOGA 3 THE INTERMEDIA TE SlX - SESSION GURU - YOGA In my heart I turn to the three jewels of refuge, May I free suffering creatures and place them in bliss. May the compassionate spirit of love grew within me, That I might complete the enlightening path. In the sky on a lotus, su n and moon seat, I see my Lama as Vajradhara (Dorje Chang). Blue in colour holding Dorje and Bell, Experiencing great bl iss with his consort Vajradhatu Isvari (Jig chu ma). On his crown a white OM, at his throat a red AH, From the Blue HUNG in his heart many colo u rs shine out, Calling forth the awakened from all ten directions, Inviting them to melt into one. To your blu e lotus feet, I bow Dorje Chang, With oceans of clouds I make triple offerings. The land, jewelled vase, the sun and moon, And all preci ous offerings I make unto you. Powers supreme and powers mundane Follow upon pure devotion to you, my protector, Seeing this I forsake my body and even my life, Bless me to practice what will only please you.

5. THE INTERMEDIATE YOGACARYA SIX - SESSION GURU YOGA 4 Now my Lama requested comes to the crown of my head, And dissolves until we both are one, I become Vajrasattva , Holding a Dorje wit h my right hand at my h eart and holding a Bell with my left hand on my waist . Land, body and wealth and all virtues collected, For the sake of all mothers I gladly r elease, I vow to protect all the vows I have taken, Nor to transgress even one for the sake of my life. By means of holding both Sutra and Tantra, May I libera te all living creatures completely. May the virtues collected flow on towards the Dharma, Preser ve it and nourish the prayers of the masters. I request that the grace of the three jewels of refuge, Following on by cause and effect, Shall fulfill all the p rayers that I now send forth, And lead me across to Enlightenment's shore.
