Three Prayers to Remove Obstacles and Gather Positive
"Clearing Obstacles, Fulfilling Wishes, and Praising
The Prayer for Clearing Obstacles
This prayer is a request to the three forms and twelve emanations of
the master to pacify all problems within all sections of the mandala
of the foremost three roots and the all-pervasive Victor (the Buddha).
These can be external obstacles of the four elements of our everyday
life, the inner obstacles of the channels and energies that act as conditions
that obstruct the attainment of the final enlightenment, or the secret
obstacles of our deluded conceptions. If this prayer for clearing obstacles
is requested for oneself or for someone else with sincere respect and
devotion, exactly what one has requested will manifest. That is what
the guru (Padmasambhava) himself said.
The Prayer for the Spontaneous Accomplishment
If one makes this request for oneself or says it for the benefit of
others with complete trust in the thirteen chief disciples of the guru
(Padmasambhava) – that one may from now on be free from all the
fears connected with war, disease, poverty, treasures, obstacle-makers,
predators, the four elements, robbers, physical characteristics, avoiding
death, the intermediate state, clinging to reality, the sufferings of
the six classes of beings, and so forth – all of one’s aims
and wishes will spontaneously be fulfilled without effort.
The Prayer of the Noble Saviouress (Tara)
The Noble Saviouress (Tara) is a magical manifestation of the essence
of the sacred activity of the Enlightened Ones of the three times. To
invoke this great beings assistance one can physically venerate her
with a prostration, verbally venerate her with a supplication, and mentally
venerate her by praising and supplicating the physical, verbal, and
mental qualities with the prayer The Noble Lady’s Twenty One Forms.
One may chant this prayer of the Saviouress’ twenty one forms
two, three, seven, or any such number of times. One may also get someone
else to chant it for one. If one wishes for a boy or a girl, is seeking
wealth, or other such things, all adverse conditions to this will be
pacified, whether they are temporary or final. All one’s wishes
will quickly be fulfilled unhindered.
