From the all-encompassing vajradhatu,
Indestructible nonthought beyond description,
From the vast dharmadhatu,
The unceasing play of energy and light,
The dharmakaya Vajradhara takes form
As the incomparable root guru, Chokyi Gyatso.
The five poisons and the eight worldly dharmas
Are tansformed into wisdom and skillful means.
Look! The aspirations and desire of sentient beings are fulfilled.

With unceasing devotion I prostrate to the only father guru.
I offer all that is worthwhile and pleasing,
The wealth of all the universes.
I confess to lingering in the grip of samsara.
I rejoice in your boundless generosity.
Please continue to turn the wheel of the dharma.
Remain with us in your undefiled splendor.
May all sentient beings attain enlightenment,
And may I never rest until samsara is thoroughly emptied.

This doha, originally posted May 22, 200, is excerpted from Letter to the 1980 Seminary by the Vajra Regent.
