Enthronement


ONE

Parents are very wise,
But I am too young to appreciate it.
The highland mountains and valleys are beautiful,
But having never seen the lowlands, I am stupid.

TWO

Having striven for mindís nourishment,
Sharpening the spearhead of intellect,
I discovered permanent parents
Whom I can never forget.

THREE

Having no one to influence my outlook,
I display my primordial nature
And adopt the style of a youthful prince.
This is due to the only father guru.

FOUR

I am busy working for others.
Prajna, penetrating all obstacles,
Has made me the prince old and wise,
Fearing no one.

FIVE

Dancing in space,
Clad in the clouds
Eating the sun and holding the moon,
The stars are my retinue.

SIX

The naked child is beautiful and dignified.
The red flower blooms in the sky.
It is ironic to see the formless dancer,
Dancing to the trumpet without a trumpeter.

SEVEN

At the palace of red ruby,
Listening to the utterance of the seed syllable,
It is joyful to watch the dance of illusion,
The seductive maidens of phenomena.

EIGHT

The warrior without a sword,
Riding on a rainbow,
Hears the limitless laughter of transcendent joy.
The poisonous snake becomes amrita.

NINE

Drinking fire, wearing water,
Holding the mace of the wind,
Breaking earth,
I am the lord of the three worlds.


Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, January 22, 1973
