"The sun in the morning sky
The billions of stars that form a canopy at night
The moon of awareness that reflects the true meaning
All the elements together with space --
This is your kingdom.
For just a moment we meditate on unobstructed, pure dharmata
This experience is vividly real but truly nonexistent, like waking from a dream
To the guru of gurus, uninterrupted consciousness without a reference point, I prostrate
To mind itself, none other than your smiling face,
I prostrate again and again
May our minds be inseparable, like water poured into water."


Vajra Regent Osel Tendzin from "Rainclouds of Wisdom: A Supplication to the supreme Vidyadhara, Chokyi Gyatso, the Eleventh Trungpa."
