The Teachings of Guru Rinpoche in The Sera Khandro Lineage taught by HE Serling Tulku Yongdzin Rinpoche (6)

Chapter Five

How wonderful!

Then you, Lotus-Born Master,
Assumed the form of Great Powerful Héruka,
Proclaimed, “Houng! Houng!,” and brought gods and demons under
your control.

You suppressed them with orders and seals, and bound them under oath.

You consecrated the ground for the construction of Samyé.

The Four Great Kings directed the work.

During the day, humans worked; during the night, gods and demons.

Samyé’s walls look like an unusual being.

The monastery’s design replicates Supreme Mountain, the four main
and four adjacent continents.

Samyé’s qualities are inconceivable.

On the temple’s three levels—above, below, and between—
Statues of the peaceful and wrathful deities were sculpted.

During the consecration, when you scattered auspicious flowers,
The deities spoke and a rain of medicine fell.

Flames rose from the commemoration pillar; sculpted copper dogs

The entire place was filled with amazing, auspicious signs,
Gladdening the king, his ministers, his subjects, and the court.

The land of Tibet became endowed with auspicious portents, virtue
and happiness:
Samyé’s benefits are inconceivable!

of the Master from Oddiyana: Construction of the Samyé Temple and its

Chapter Four

How wonderful!

Then, by the strength of your forceful previous aspirations,

When the Buddhist king Trisong Détsen was unable to tame the land
for the temple construction at Samyé,

The great scholar Bodhisattva
Foretold that inviting you, the Master from India, [would lead
to success].

Important messengers were sent to you with gold and

Upon meeting the messengers, you discussed the matter
And decided that the time was right to go to Tibet.

You sent the king’s three messengers on before you.

When you reached Nepal, gods and demons
Created many crises, miraculous appearances, and obstacles.

When you reached Mong-youl, great difficulties arose.

You meditated upon [the deity] Bitotamma for seven days

And all the obstacles dissolved naturally.

You bound under oath the gods and cannibal demons of Tibet:

Some acknowledged their faults and prayed,

Some offered you their vitality mantra,

Some made promises, some paid respect,

Some accepted responsibility to protect the doctrine,

Some revealed their [invisible] forms [to human beings], and
some kept their vows.

When you reached Tsang-rong, gods and humans greeted you;
In Tö-loong, everyone welcomed you.

You performed miracles; ambrosia flowed from the water of your

All who met you were moved to faith and confidence.

At Ombu Grove, the king received you.

Although the king was Gentle Splendor incarnate,
His intense arrogance prevented him from making obeisance to you.

You sang the song of your own greatness and power,
And performed miracles, moving the king to faith.

He prayed and prostrated before you, and invited you to sit on a
golden throne.

He presented you with precious things and wondrous offerings.

All gods and humans of Tibet paid homage to you.

Evil government ministers created foul obstacles;
Religious government ministers consulted with you and were helpful.

This completes Chapter Four from The Immaculate White Lotus: The Life
of the Master from Oddiyana: The Invitation from the King of Tibet and
Binding the Gods and Demons Under Oath.
