曼达拉娃祖师赞 林钰堂

贵为公主乐出离 领众修行趋本净
慧眼能识莲师德 以身相许超世俗
柴薪大火转成湖 举国倾倒咸皈化
无死岩穴修双运 骨饰庄严虹光身
救脱难女成空行 提携后进胜楷模
住世化现纽古妈 恩德彰显无量寿

Praise to Patriarch Mandarava

Praise to Patriarch Mandarava


Praise to Patriarch Mandarava Yutang Lin


Born of royal status as a princess yet enjoyed renunciation
Led five hundred maidens to practice toward original purity
Wisdom eyes capable of recognizing Guru Rin-po-che's virtues
In devotion to Guru offered her body beyond worldly ways
Huge fire on large pile of firewood turned into a clear pond
The whole kingdom overwhelmed and all took refuge in Guru
In the Cave of Death Ceased practiced Tantric Love
Bone ornaments adorned her rainbow-like light body
Saved a girl from peril and led her to become a Dakini
Thus set a supreme epitome of upbringing posterity
Staying in this world and appeared as patriarch Niguma
Graceful virtues illustrative of boundless longevity
