He is depicted as a buddha, sky-blue in colour, sitting in the vast expanse of space, and encircled by an aura of rainbow light. He is completely naked, meaning unstained by any trace of concept. In the Dzogchen teachings, our true nature, that state of the Ground, is given the name the 'Primordial Buddha'. Sogyal Rinpoche writes, "[Kuntuzangpo] represents the absolute, naked, sky-like primordial purity of the nature of our mind". Thus it has been said. How terrible!

Post by javier. Quick links. The Prayer of Kuntuzangpo: Forum rules. Realizing just this, you are a Buddha; Not realizing this, you are a being wandering in samsara.
I pray that all you beings of the three realms May realize the true meaning of the inexpressible Ground. I, Kuntuzangpo, have realized the truth of this Ground, Free from cause and condition, Which is just this self-arising Awareness. It is unstained by outer expression and inner thought, Affirmation or denial, and is not defiled By the darkness of unmindfulness. Thus this self-manifesting display is free from defects. I, Kuntuzangpo, abide as Intrinsic Awareness.
Even though the three realms were to be destroyed, there is no fear. There is no attachment to the five desirable qualities of sense objects.
In self-arising consciousness, free of thoughts, There is neither solid form nor the five poisons. In the unceasing clarity of Awareness, Singular in essence, there yet arises the display of the five wisdoms. From the ripening of these five wisdoms, The five original Buddha families emerge, And through the expanse of their wisdom The forty-two peaceful Buddhas appear.
Through the arising power of the five wisdoms The sixty wrathful Herukas manifest. Thus the Ground Awareness is never mistaken or wrong. I, Kuntuzangpo, am the original Buddha of all, And through this prayer of mine May all you beings who wander in the three realms of samsara Realize this self-arising Awareness, And may your great wisdom spontaneously increase!
My emanations will continuously manifest In billions of unimaginable ways, Appearing in forms to help you beings who can be trained. Through my compassionate prayer May all of you beings who wander in the three realms of samsara Escape from the six life forms! From the beginning you beings are deluded Because you do not recognize the Awareness of the Ground.
Being thus unmindful of what occurs is delusion — The very state of unawareness and the cause of going astray. From this delusive state comes a sudden fainting away And then a subtle consciousness of wavering fear.
From that wavering there arises a separation of self And the perception of others as enemies. Gradually the tendency of separation strengthens, And from this the circle of samsara begins. Then the emotions of the five poisons develop — The actions of these emotions are endless. You beings lack awareness because you are unmindful, And this is the basis of your going astray.
Through my prayer, may all you beings recognize your Intrinsic Awareness! Innate unawareness means unmindfulness and distraction. Imputing unawareness means dualistic thoughts towards self and others. Both kinds of unawareness are the basis for the delusion of all beings. May you recognize your own Intrinsic Awareness. Dualistic thoughts create doubt. From subtle attachment to this dualistic turn of mind Dualistic tendencies become stronger and thicker.
Food, wealth, clothes, home, and friends, The five objects of the senses, and your beloved family — All these things cause torment by creating longing and desire. These are all worldly delusions; the activities of grasping and clinging are endless. When the fruition of attachment ripens, you are born as a hungry ghost, Tormented by coveting and desiring, miserable, starving and thirsty.
Let your consciousness relax in its own natural state, Then your Awareness will be able to hold its own. May you achieve the wisdom of perfect discernment! When external objects appear, the subtle consciousness of fear will arise. From this fear, the habit of anger becomes stronger and stronger. Finally, hostility comes causing violence and murder.
When the fruition of this anger ripens, you will suffer in hell by boiling and burning. Instead relax in the natural state and achieve the wisdom of clarity! When your mind becomes full of pride There will arise thoughts of competition and humiliation.
As this pride becomes stronger and stronger, You will experience the suffering of quarrels and abuse. When the fruition of this karma ripens, you will be born in the God Realms And experience the suffering of change and falling to lower rebirths. Then your Awareness will be able to hold its own. May you achieve the wisdom of equanimity!
By Increasing the habit of duality, by praising yourself and denigrating others, Your competitive mind will lead you to jealousy and fighting, And you will be born in the jealous God Realm, where there is much killing and injury From the result of that killing, you will fall into the Hell Realm. Just relax in ease, then consciousness can hold its own natural state. May you achieve the wisdom of unobstructed action! By being distracted, careless and unmindful, You beings will become dull, foggy and forgetful By being unconscious and lazy, you will increase your ignorance And the fruition of this ignorance will be to wander helplessly in the Animal Realm.
All you beings of the three realms are actually identical to Buddha, the Ground of all. But your misunderstanding of the Ground causes you to go astray, So you act without aim. The six karmic actions are a delusion, like a dream. I am the Primordial Buddha here to train the six kinds of beings Through all my manifestations.
Ah Ho! Hereafter, whenever a very powerful yogin With his or her Awareness radiant and free from delusion Recites this very powerful prayer, then all who hear it Will achieve enlightenment within three lifetimes. During a solar or lunar eclipse, during an earthquake or when the earth rumbles, At the solstices or the new year, you should visualize Kuntuzangpo. And if you pray loudly so all can hear, Then beings of the three realms will be gradually liberated from suffering, Through the prayer of the yogin and will finally achieve enlightenment.
The best meditation is no meditation. And also, I was wondering if anyone knows, there is a Samantabhadra who is a bodhisattva as well, I believe he features a lot in the Flower Ornament Sutra.
Also wondering if Tibetans refer to the bodhisattva Samantabhadra as Kuntuzangpo as well. Contentment is the ultimate wealth; Detachment is the final happiness. And also, I was wondering if anyone knows, there is a Samantabhadra who is a bodhisattva as well,. Earthquakes are uncannily unnerving even if you get through unscathed, been through some big ones myself.
Thanks as well for the Adi Buddah Samantrabhadra quotes. Very rich and quite wonderful. I suppose the mystery will continue and I can just be imaginative and imagine Samantabhadra is also the Adi Buddah whenever I read the Flower Ornament Sutra. Definitely perfect for the devastation in Nepal.. Thank you for posting it here! IOW, is there a tradition of reciting it daily? Re: The Prayer of Kuntuzangpo: Post by javier.
Garchen Rinpoche Formerly known as Miroku. There is not only nothingness because there is always, and always can manifest. Miroku wrote: In what ways did you find it useful? However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar.
