"Devotion that Moves the Heart"
A Prayer Calling the Lama From Afar


1
Namo Guruve. Prayers calling the Lama from afar are known to everyone. The key to invoking blessing
is devotion motivated by repentance, of old ways and renunciation of samsara. This devotion is not a
mere repetition of empty words, but it comes from the depth of our heart, from the marrow of our bones,
and from the conviction that there is no Buddha apart from the Lama. With this complete certainty, we
chant:

Previously, some devoted monks had asked me to write a prayer like this, but time slipped away and
then recently, Samdrub Dronma, a lady practitioner from a noble family and Deva Rakshita earnestly
requested me to compose this text and so I, Lodro Thaye, who in this degenerate time, is the mere
reflection of a Lama, wrote this prayer at the great retreat place of Dzongsho Deshek Dupa. May virtue
and goodness increase. This translation was made by Dzogchen Pönlop Rinpoche and Michele Martin
and it is indebted to a version by the Nalanda Translation Committee in Journey without Goal by
Chögyam Trungpa (Shambala, 1985).
