Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche’s
Verses of the
Eight Noble Auspicious Ones

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche stated that this famous prayer is very effective to accomplish positive aims, aspirations and good fortune - such as the health and wellbeing of oneself, the human species and the living world with its great ecosystems.

Om: Homage to the Buddha, Dharma and Noble Sangha —
All who dwell in the auspicious realms of the ten directions,
Where all appearance is completely pure, its nature spontaneously perfect,
May all be auspicious for us!

Homage to the Eight Sugatas,
Merely hearing your names increases auspiciousness and success.
King of the Lamp,
Stable Strength of Wisdom Accomplishing All Aims,
Glorious Adornment of Love,
Sacred and Glorious One Renowned for Virtue, 
Vastly Renowned & Considerate of All,
Glorious One Renowned as Perfectly Strong and Exalted like a Mountain,
Glorious One Renowned as Considerate of All Sentient Beings,
Glorious One Renowned as Perfectly Strong who Satisfies the Minds of Beings.

Homage to the Eight Bodhisattvas,
Supreme in granting auspiciousness and success,
Gracefully holding your emblems -
Utpala flower, vajra, white lotus, naga-tree,
Jewel, moon, sword and sun -
The youthful Manjushri, the glorious Vajrapani,
Avalokiteshvara, the protector Maitreya,
Kshitigarbha, Nivaranavishkambin,
Akashagarbha and noble Samantabhadra.

Homage to the Eight Auspicious Goddesses -
Of beauty, garlands, song, dance flowers, incense, light and perfume,
Pleasing with offerings the Buddhas of all directions and time,
Holders of the eight precious symbols -
The precious umbrella, the auspicious golden fishes, the wish-fulfilling vase, the exquisite lotus, the conch of fame, the glorious knot of prosperity, the victory banner and the majestic wheel.
Pleasing with offerings the Buddhas of all directions and time,
Thinking of your essential qualities makes success and fame grow.

Homage to the Eight Guardians of the World -
Each one holding your divine emblem -
Wheel, trident, lance, vajra, vina, sword, stupa and banner of victory.
Mahabrahma, Shiva, Vishnu, Indra the Thousand-Eyed,
The Kings; Dhritirashtra, Virudhaka, Virupaksha Lord of Nagas and Vaishravana.
Auspiciously develop happiness and virtue in the three realms!

With all obstacles and harmful influences pacified,
May the work we are now about to begin
Meet with ever-growing fulfillment and success,
And bring good fortune, prosperity, happiness and peace!

Colophon:
If you recite this upon waking, all the tasks of the day will be accomplished.
If you recite it when going to sleep, it will bring you good dreams.
If you recite it when entering battle, it will bring total victory.
If you recite it at the outset of a project, all aims and wishes will be fulfilled.
If you recite it continually, you will enjoy a long life, glory, renown, prosperity,
auspiciousness, abundant happiness and positivity, and the fulfilment of all wishes.
All your misdeeds and obscurations will be purified,
and you will achieve the higher realms and liberation.
This was declared by the sublime victorious one himself.

This arose from the lake of the mind of Jampal Gyepé Dorjé  on the third day of the third month of the Fire Monkey year (1896),  an auspicious time according to the configuration of planets, sun and constellations. Mangalam!
