Supplication of the Twenty-Five Chariots


Prayer composed by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo
Melody composed by H.H. the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa





This aspect of H. H.'s voice reveals his soft heart, his longing devotion for the noble teachers of all lineages, we feel that we are being given refuge and protection by all the great masters. Enveloped by the loving-kindness in his gentle voice, shelters us from the pain and heart-ache of life, letting tenderness blossom within your soul...




Personification of the three roots, Acharya Padmasambhava;

Great abbot Shantarakshita; Dharma King Trisong;

Nupchen Sangyay Yeshe; and Nyangton Nyima Ozer:

I pray to the five chariots of word and treasure.



Vajradhara in person, the great guru of Sakya, Kunga Nyingpo;

Sonam Tsemo; Drakpa Gyaltsen;

Sakya Pandita; and Pakpa Rinpoche:

I pray to the noble lords, the five forefathers.



Hevajra in person, Marpa Chokyi Lodro;

Milarepa; the peerless Gampopa;

Dusum khyenpa; and Phamodrupa, the protector of beings:

I pray to the five Kagyu forefathers.



The protector Amitabha in person, Shri Dipankara;

Gyalway Jungnay; Chennga Tsultrim Bar;

Rinchen Sal; and Shonnu Gyaltsen:

I pray to the five Kadampa spiritual friends.



Manjushri in person, the noble Lord Tsongkhapa;

Gyaltsap Choje; Khedrup Gelek Pal;

Gendun Drup; and Panchen Chokyi Gyaltsen:

I pray to the five Manjushris.



Through the blessing of praying in this way, may I and others 

Have long lives without sickness, and behave in accord with Dharma.

May we be cared for by genuine spiritual friends

And quickly reach the state of awakening



May the feet of all Dharma traditions' holders

Remain firm for a hundred kalpas. May their activity spread to the ten directions.

May the Sangha and the Dharma of study and practice increase.

May the three worlds be filled with the radiance of auspiciousness.
