FROM: WHEN SNOW MOUNTAINS WEAR BLACK HATS

 

May the blessings of the exalted sources of refuge,

The Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, the Three Jewels

And the Lama Yidam and Protectors, the three Roots,

Pacify the terrors of illness, famine, war

 

And chaos in the elements: the temperatures

Unbalanced, grand snow mountains – hard firm glaciers –

Will melt and disappear. Rivers and lakes

Will become parched, so the primeval forests

 

And trees of beauty too, will near their deaths.

There is the terrifying danger the world’s reaches

Will become a great wasteland. May these imminent

Dangers  be fully extinguished, and sublime

 

Good fortune and happiness spread all around.

May all beings nurture one another lovingly

And kindly, so their joy may fully blossom.

May all their aims be fulfilled, in accordance with the dharma.
