A prayer…

by Repa Dorje Odzer
Once while I was in india, my dear friend Margaret Causmann, a German Tibetologist, and long time student of Bokar Rinpoche helped me locate a text that I needed.  We shared a house several times in Mirik, West Bengal- spending time eating, talking and reflecting upon various aspects of Tibetan history, lineage histories, and other topics together.  Over time, I realized that there was an extra page in the beginning of the text that she lent me which I was curious about- it turned out to be a beautiful prayer that I slowly translated.  I want to share it with you.  May it prove to be inspiring!
In the palace of the immaculate Buddhafield of Ankanista, Buddha Akshobya Vajrasattva, the most excellent, remain present until the very final limits, I supplicate.  Please bestow the supreme siddhi of Mahamudra.

In the Eastern land of Sahor in the jeweled gompa, Buddha Akshobya Tilopa, ultimate yogin, I supplicate. Please bestow the supreme siddhi of Mahamudra.
