The Song of the Realization of Fivefold Mahamudra
By Kagyupa Master of Drikungpa Jigten Sumgon
1. I bow to the feet of glorious Phagmodrupa.
If you do not win the race of benefiting others
by riding the stallion of love and compassion,
the watching crowds of humans and devas will not cheer you.
That is why you must apply your mind to this preliminary.
2. If your body as the king, the deity’s body,
does not maintain the throne of the unchanging basis,
the mother dakinis will not gather to be your subjects.
That is why you must apply your body to the yidam deity.
3. If the sun of your devotion does not shine
on the snow mountain of the guru’s four kayas,
the rivers of blessings will not come to you.
That is why you must apply your mind to devotion.
4. If the clouds of thoughts do not vanish
from the vast sky of your mind’s nature,
the planets and stars of the two wisdoms will not shine.
That is why you must apply your mind to non-thought.
5. If you do not polish with prayer
the wish-fulfilling jewel of the two accumulations,
the results that you desire and need will not appear.
That is why you should apply yourself to a concluding dedication.
