Song list -Chansons de réalisation

 

Like a Dream

Like a dream, like an illusion,

Like a city of Gandharvas,

Thats how birth, and thats how living,

Thats how dying are taught to be.

From Nagarjuna's Knowledge Fundamental to the Middle Way

 

Comme un Rêve

Comme un rêve, comme une illusion,

Comme une cité de Gandharvas,

C'est ainsi que la naissance et la vie,

C'est ainsi que la mort apprennent à être.

 

 

Friends

A Song of Those who are Full of Love but Free of Attachment

Friends are empty forms, like a water moon

To think of them as being truly real

Will only make your many sufferings increase

To know they’re empty forms, like a water moon

Will make illusion-like samadhi increase

Compassion free of clinging will increase

And non-referential view will also increase

And meditation that’s fixation-free

And conduct free of doer, deed increase

Of all the many marvels, this, by far the most marvelous!

Of all the many wonders, this, the most wonderful!

Composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, Marpa House, England, August 1997. Translated and arranged by Jim Scott. Translation copyright 2012, Jim Scott

 

 

Self-Appearing Illusion

All these forms, appearance emptiness

Like a rainbow with its shining glow

In the reaches of appearance emptiness

Just let go and go where no mind goes
 

Every sound is sound and emptiness

Like the sound of an echo's roll

In the reaches of sound and emptiness

Just let go and go where no mind goes
 

Every feeling is bliss and emptiness

Way beyond what words can show

In the reaches of bliss and emptiness

Just let go and go where no mind goes
 

All awareness, awareness emptiness

Way beyond what thought can know

In the reaches of awareness emptiness

Let awareness go, oh, where no mind goes

Composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche in the Garden of Translation near the Boudhanath stupa in Nepal.

Translated and arranged by Jim Scott, March 1998. Translation copyright 2012, Jim Scott

 

TOUTES CES FORMES

Toutes ces formes sont apparences-vacuité,

Comme un arc en ciel, elles resplendissent.

Apparences-vacuité sont libres de fabrication,

Détends-toi dans cet espace, oh oui dans cet état, détendons-nous !

 

Tous les bruits sont des sons-vacuité,

Comme un écho, ils résonnent, ils résonnent.

Sons-vacuité sont libres de fabrication,

Détends-toi dans cet espace, oh oui dans cet état, détendons-nous !

 

Toutes les sensations sont félicité-vacuité,

Au-delà des mots, elles ne peuvent être dites.

Félicité-vacuité est libre de fabrication,

Détends-toi dans cet espace, oh oui dans cet état, détendons-nous !

 

Toute conscience est conscience-vacuité,

Elle transcende l'intellect, elle transcende les idées.

Conscience-vacuité est libre de fabrication,

Détends-toi dans cet espace, oh oui dans cet état, détendons-nous !

Impartial Aspiration Prayer

All you sentient beings I have a good or bad connection with,

As soon as you have left this confused dimension,

May you be born in the West, in Sukhavati

And once you're born there, complete the bhumis and the paths.

Composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, August 29, 1999. Translated and arranged by Jim and Birgit Scott. Translation copyright 2012, Jim and Birgit Scott

 


 

Milarepa's Dedication

May we live long and be free of illness,

Enjoy freedom, great resources, and happiness.

Next life, may we meet in the pure realm,

May we always practice Dharma and benefit beings.

Under the guidance of Dechen Rangdrol, translated by Ari Goldfield, May 3, 2003. Translation copyright 2012, Ari Goldfield.

 

Ultimate view, meditation, conduct and fruition

The view the original wisdom which is empty

Meditation, clear light free from fixation

Conduct, continual flow without attachment

Fruition is nakedness, free from every stain

 

The view, the original wisdom which is empty

Risks getting lost in just being talk and no more

If certainty whiich is touch with what's meant does not follow

The view will not manag to free you from clinging to self

An that's why definitive certainty means so much.

 

The meditation, clear light free from fixation

Risks getting lost in just being settling

If original wisdom does not arise from within you

You might settle steadily but this will not set you free

But wisdom does not come from dullness and agitation

And that's why non-wandering mindfulness means so much

 

This conduct continual flow without attachment

Risks getting lost in only being a pretense

If the view and meditation are not included

The eight worldly dharmas might mix with your yogic pursuits

And that's 
why the freedom from clinging and veils means so much.

 

Fruition as nakedness free from any defects

Risks getting 
clothed in the garments of attributes

If delusion is not overcome from its source on the inside

Your practice may aim very far but fall very short

And that's why correcting delusion means so much
