A Song Of Meaningful Connections

Recommended Posts

At your feet oh Marpa from Lhodrak I bow down

Grant your blessing that this beggar will stay in natural retreats

 

That you stalwart benefactors are so fondly gathered here

Makes the right connection for fulfilling the two concerns

When this body hard to get that so easily decays

Gets the nourishment it needs it will flourish and be full of health

 

When the pollen from the flowers growing in the solid ground

And the honeydew of raindrops falling from the deep blue sky

Come together this connection is of benefit to beings

But what gives this link its meaning is when dharma is included too

 

When a body that's illusion by its parents nursed to life

And the guiding instructions from a lama who's reliable

Come together this connection brings the practice of dharma to life

But what gives this link its meaning is when persevering heart bone beats

 

When a cave in the rock in a valley with no human being

And someone really practicing without hypocrisy

Come together this connection can fulfill your every need

But what gives this link its meaning is what's known as the emptiness

 

When a Milarepa's practice of endurance in meditation

And those from the three realms who have the quality of faith

Come together this connection brings about the good of beings

But what gives this link its meaning is compassion in a noble heart

 

When a skillful meditator meditating in the wilderness

And a skillful benefactor providing the wherewithal

Come together this connection leads to both gaining buddhahood

But what gives this link its meaning is to dedicate the merit

 

When an excellent lama endowed with compassionate heart

And an excellent student with endurance in meditation

Come together this connection makes the teaching accessible

But what gives this link its meaning is the samaya it brings about

 

When the gift of abhisheka with its blessing that works so fast

And the fervent trusting prayer where you're praying it will come to you

Come together this connection gets your prayer well-answered soon

But to give this link its meaning a little bit of luck might help

 

Oh master Vajradhara, the essence of Akshobhya

You know my joys and sorrows à¢-†and what this beggar's going through

 

 

Composed by Milarepa
