Video: Wish-Fulfilling 7-Line Praise to Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava in Sanskrit with mantra

Feature Contents

    For most Vajrayana Buddhists, the practice of Guru Rinpoche, the Lotus Born Padmasambhava, is the most profound of practices for meditations, and accomplishments. Chanting both the mantra of Padmasambhava, and the 7 lines of praise, is the purest form of practice. Chanting the praise in the original mother language of Sanskrit, rather than a translation such as Tibetan, English or other languages, is considered the most effective. In this video, chant along with Hrishikesh Sonar, the 7 lines of praise in Sanskrit, with the mantra of Padmasambhava, ideally 27 times daily.


    We start with a very short introduction and the Praise in English, but you will find the time code to jump ahead in the description. To learn more about Buddha Padmasambhava, see the information icon in the top right.

    Any translation of the Sanskrit is a compromise since each syllable in Sanskrit traditionally means many things. Also, the vibrations of the mother language are considered to have sacred power.

    In English the great Dharani praise translates as:

    In Oḍiyāna in the North-West
    In the heart of a lotus flower
    Endowed with the most marvelous attainments
    You are renowned as the Lotus Born
    Surrounded by many hosts of Dakinis
    Following in your footsteps
    I pray to you. Come inspire me with your blessing. This is followed by the mantra. After 27 repetitions there is a final dedication in Sanskrit.

    Chant along with the amazing voice of Hrishikesh Sonar the most sacred wish-fulfilling praise of Guru Rinpoche, the Lotus Born Padmasambhava.

    hūṁ | oḍiyāne vāyavye |

    padmakesarakāṇḍe |

    siddhir labdhātyadbhutā |

    khyāta padmasambhava |

    bahuḍākībhir āvṛta |

    tavaivānusarāmi |

    āyāhy adhiṣṭḥānārthaṁ |

    guru padma siddhi hūṁ ||

    om ah hūṁ vajra guru padma siddhi hūṁ

    At the end of 27 repetitions:
    iti gururatnasaptapadaprārthanā ||

    This is the prayer to the Precious Guru, in seven sentences.
