Supplementing the Meditation for the Mandala Gifts

If you change the materials, recite the following prayer:

 

LA MA DER SHEG YI DAM LHA TSOK LA
To the assembly of the Lamas, Yidams and Enlightened Ones,

 

DRO WA KUN DANG CHE TE KYAB SU CHI
I and all sentient beings take refuge with great joy.

 

NYA NGEN MI DHA ZHUG PAR SÖL WA DHEP
Please stay forever to bless us in this suffering world.

 

THUG JE TANG DRAL MED PAR ZHUG DU SÖL
Protect us without reducing your blessings and compassion.

 

We wish the eternal blessing and protection of the four highest objects of refuge. Then we slowly remove the delivery materials, starting in the eastern direction and ending in the southern direction, reciting the following prayer:

 

BÖN NYID SEM NYID YE NE MI GYUR TE
The nature of Bön and the mind are undistributed from the beginning.

 

TSIG DANG SEM CHEN DHÜ JE MI TAG PA
Words, all sentient beings and all compound things are transient.

 

LEG JE DE LA NYE JE GANG LAG PA
Whatever mistakes were ever in the actions,

 

LA MA DER SHEK NAM LA ZÖD PAR SÖL
I confess these all before the Lama and the Enlightened One.

 

TEN DU KYOD PAR MA LAG TE
I know, you will not be here forever,

 

LAR YANG DRO WE DÖN LA THUG JE GONG
But please help and protect all sentient beings with your compassion.

 

OM AH DA DA DE DE CHÖD CHÖD SA LE HA LO SENG

 

 

Alternative Mandala Offering

Alternatively, you can also use the following text for the gifts and related prayers:

 

First recite:

 

OM NAMA A KAR SHA YA NI SHUK SA LE SANG NGE YE SOHA!
DRUM RI TI GAR MA LA HO!

 

A YAM RAM MAM KHAM BRUM SHAK SA LE SANG NGE YE SOHA!
OM CHÖ CHÖ PHAR SA LE HA LO SENG!

 

Then build the Mandala by the following words:

 

Emaho! (How wonderful!)
Within this infinite, vast empire that is wonderful and glorious,
There are plenty of gems to find that are beautiful, attractive, shiny and bright
Like Meru, the seven golden mountains, the seven dancing seas and the twelve continents,
The wish-fulfilling tree, the sun and the moon, the jewel that multiplies what is desired,
As well as the eight auspicious substances and the seven precious jewels of the royal palace:

 

The eight favorable substances or symbols are:
the wheel of the teaching, the shell, the umbrella, the victory banner, the golden fish, the auspicious knot, the lotus and the vase.

 

The seven precious jewels of kings are:
the wheel, the jewel, the elephant, the thoroughbred horse, the queen, the minister and the general.

 

Along with lights, flowers, perfume, incense, delicious cake for the gods, gold, silver, turquoise, copper, iron, crystal glass, beads,
The white and the sweet things, expensive offerings, rich crops, cereals, nectars,
Rich ornaments, silk curtains, pleasing and pleasant Puja Puja substances,
Beautiful shapes, pleasant sounds and aromatic scents,
Delicious taste, soft bales of material, all pleasant substances ꟷ In fact, all our wealth, whatever it may be, what we have seen and heard of,
Or whatever it is that comes from the mind and is visualized, or what is received from the mind,
Including life force, body jewelry, pleasures, psychic powers and so on, are prepared here as our offering.

 

All these Puja substances from the world that permeate the sky,
We offer the Guru, the Buddhas, along with their spiritual sons (male and female Bodhisattvas), as well as the Dharma
And after these offerings were also accepted for the benefit of living beings, as for ourselves,
Please look at us and pay attention to us at this time!
May experience and understanding, as well as faith, realization and trust emerge in us!
Please let the original knowledge of self-awareness arise in us!

 

To the victorious and their spiritual sons, as well as to the roots and branches of the teachings,
We pray that you will be here for a long time continuously!

 

May we realize the accumulation of merit, Please and produce intense devotion,
And may we rejoice over the accumulation of merit from others!
Teacher's teachings are a valuable magical language;
May they spread and grow in all ten directions!

 

In all our lifetime, may we own the methods of the accomplishments of the Bodhisattvas!
May we become great captains of the ships of merit
And finally become the source of protection and refuge for all!
May we quickly receive the great nature of refuge!

 

In the way of knowledge and love, of means and of compassion,
May this be for the benefit of the beings without restraint or weariness!
Whatever accumulations of merit exist, which can come forth,
We dedicate all of them for the purpose of obtaining the body of realization.
May we all quickly attain the Supreme Fruit, which is safe and devoid of concepts!

 

Then, when this intention is summarized, for example, with a Hand-Mudra Mandala Offering elsewhere and at the end of that text, recite:

 

OM A DA DA DE-DE TSCHÖ TSCHÖ SA LE HA LO SENG!
