Padmasambhava – Bone seed, diamond seed

Bone seed, diamond seed   OM   I am the bird on the wing, I weave in mystic flight. On my head antlers appear, I dance in the forests deep. I open my palm and the diamond flashes, I dwell among the stars. I am the swift salmon, Flowing through the waters of life. I am a chant carried by the winds, I speak with the voice of wisdom. I am the song of truth, My words echo in the heart. AH I am the spirit helper, I take you on the vision quest. (damaru) I am the spell maker, I know of all the worlds. (bell and damaru) I sit beneath the tree of life, The centre that is everywhere. (bell) I give myself in sacrifice, I surrender, I die, I die, I die, To live, To live, To live, ( flourish) HUM In the spirit realm, I have been dismembered. In the cremation ground, The fires devoured me. I have been reborn. I have another name. Many forms, Many names. Vulture and serpent taught me. Spirits of the dead taught me. Deep pain and loss taught me. I have spoken to deer and wolf. The birds have filled me with songs The dakini has swallowed me whole! I have passed through her, Tasted the undying bliss of knowledge. I am seer and seen, Completing my purpose, Look now, I return! OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM I have called you to me. Come now! This is real! This is true! Right now Free of doubts, Free of thoughts, Free of fears The Gurus Wisdom Awareness Dynamically manifests In everything! OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM The blade is sharp, The moon crescent blade, The butchers blade, The chodpa’s blade, Wisdom’s blade The freeing edge of sacrifice! Blood fills the bowl of bliss, You have taken my blood, Here is my skull, Fill it with nectar. I am burning, A rainbow of light dances within and without, Spinning out to all directions. I am light! I am light! I am light! I change, I am changing, I am change. There is no I. There is no thing. I am laughing, You are laughing, We are laughing, The universe is laughing! HA HA HA HA HRIH Look the guru, Shape shifter, He comes, He is here. Feel him in your beating heart, Feel him in each breath. Closer, closer, closer Inseparable! He rises ecstatic into the sky’s realm. He plunges fearless to the oceans depths. He reaches to the universe’s furthest limits. There are stars and suns In his eyes! See! He has many forms....
