"The Flower of Faith : A prayer to the twenty-five founders of Buddha's teachings in Tibet."
by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo


Padmasambhava, embodiment of all Gurus, Dewas and Dakinis, Great Khenpo Shantarakshita, and the Dharma-king Trisong Detsen, Nubchen Sangye Yeshe and Nyangrel Nyima Ozer:
To you, the five pioneers of the kama and terma, we pray!

Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, who is Vajradhara in person,
Sonam Tsemo and Drakpa Gyaltsan, Sakya Pandita and Chogyal Pagpa.
To you, the five founders of the Sakya order, we pray!

Marpa Lodro, who is one with Hevajra,
Great Milarepa, peerless Gampopa,
Karmapa Dusum Khyenpa and Sonam Drakpa, protector of beings:
To you, the five founders of the Kagyu tradition, we pray!

Glorious Atisha, the same as Buddha Amitabha,
Dromton Gyalwe Jungne, and Chengawa Tsultrim Bar,
Potowa Rinchen Sel and Phuchungwa Shyonnu Gyaltsan:
To you, the Kadampas' five great spiritual guides, we pray!

Venerable Tsongkhapa, who turns the wheel of Buddha's teaching,
Gyaltsab, Lord of Dharma, and Kedrup Gelek Pal, Gendun Drubpa and Panchen Chokyi Gyaltsan:
To you five, the emanation of Manjushri and his heirs, we pray!

Through the blessing of our reciting this prayer,

May we and all others enjoy a long life, without illness, and may our lives be meaningful and one with the Dharma!

By following these supreme spiritual guides, masters of all traditions,

May we quickly attain the perfect state of enlightenment!

May those noble ones who uphold the non-partisan teaching of Buddha,

Live for hundreds of aeons, and may their activities increase in all directions!

May the Sangha increase and may the study and practice of Buddha's teaching spread and grow!

May the whole universe and its three worlds be flooded with the sun-light of auspiciousness!

Inspired by a vision he had in a dream, the yogi Manjughosha (Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo), one who is completely devoted to the non-sectarian (Remay) teaching of Buddha, composed this, and may all be well!
