The Wanderer's Prayer
As I wander through worlds of illusion,
May I remain confident
And remember my own mind.
May the Five Wisdoms shine.
May I recognise myself.
When earth, water, fire, air or ether rise up against me,
May I remember my teachers.
May blessings go before me,
And compassionate Queens of Space
Help me to cross this dangerous place.
When my old ways of thinking
Cause me to wander,
May I hear blessings
Even in the roar of a thousand thunders
And recognise this realm of shadows
For what it is.
Confident, may I see the Universal Energies.
