Invoking Protection and Blessings

A Prayer to Setrap
Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

 

Among many worlds, realms and dimensions

Abide countless awakened beings, enlightened masters

And those we call upon as having full omniscience.

无数觉皇明师大罗住

无量世界境域或空间

圆满具足觉智我召请

 

From among these beings, we request Setrap,

The Cosmic Warrior who rides on a gallant horse,

Traversing the winds of karma and

Galloping across various dimensions sans creation,

To come to this place at this time.

伟大宇宙将军金甲衣

护法身骑梭马渡业风

奔腾超越空间与诸相

一心至诚祈请汝来临

 

Setrap, Your appearance is that of a powerful, strong, divine General

Although Your heart abides in complete compassion.

Your fierce appearance is only to grant protection and

Dispel those who would be harmers.

Please abide here with me now.

身虽显现威猛神圣将

怒面为除障碍并守护

心识常住悲悯不动摇

金甲衣护法请降临此

 

I offer You a libation of incense and flowers,

And pure water and teas and all that is wonderful,

Free of attachments, that exists in the universe, actual and visualised.

Please partake of the libation of tea

And the various other sensory offerings I have placed

In order for me to make a strong affinity with You. (x3)

微妙香花净水及山茗

陈实观想离执供养品

祈请护法纳受妙欲供

为求护法结盟善缘增 (x3)

 

Regrets, mistakes and deeds done of ignorance

Which may haunt my mind bringing self-doubt and remorse,

I ask You to cleanse as I have learnt and progressed.

May they not bear unwanted sorrows.

令生起自疑自卑之心

无明所造过失今悔过

肯祈汝洗涤罪垢增进

令得罪根清净无悲伤

 

My body, environment, mind

Are subject to fears, self-ridicule, pain, degeneration,

Illness, old age, spiritual and psychic pollutions.

It all arises from grasping at an illusionary ego

Which clouds our perceptions.

行者身、心识、境尽所生

恐惧、自辱、老化诸痛苦

乃由执著于虚幻自我

掩盖世上一切外见相

 

Great Cosmic Warrior Setrap!

Send forth unlimited rays of purifying light, entering my body,

Clearing me of disease and fears,

And granting me light, love, freedom and compassion.

伟大宇宙金甲衣大将

愿放无量息灾清净光

消除病疫恐惧入我身

赐于慈悲仁爱自由光

 

Cosmic Being, who travels existence in a single instant,

I request You to abide in this place, in this house,

In this abode, in this land, in this area and in my heart.

May no negative forces or legions of harm and damage enter.

一时游历世界宇宙尊

祈请安住此处此家宅

安立居处、土地、内心处

愿无灾害、障难、可侵入

 

Please grant Your sacred diamond-like* protection,

That is immovable, indestructible and unassailable,

To my environment and to the beings therein –

I request of You.

金刚维护不动不坏力

祈求赐予金刚守护力

加持境内清净护众生

 

Grant us protection, blessings,

Together with signs and auspicious dreams

Of Your holy presence in this abode.

守护加持征兆吉祥梦

圣驾此处请于惠赐我

 

May our works, our lives, our bounty increase,

So that we may be of service to others.

May everyone who abides in this abode

Have bountiful growth, prosperity

And spiritual, along with worldly wealth, if it suits them.

祈愿事业、生命、利益增

另我等得为他人服务

祈愿居此处者内外利益增

依其身心得内外福具

 

Whenever I travel, am at home, working or in various activities,

Please grant thorough protection,

Like a body followed by its shadow,

To never be separated from You and Your cosmic emanations.

**May You, and all holy and divine and powerful

That abide in Your sacred, ruby-like mandala also bless us.

行住坐卧、事务、事业中

如影随形守护大加持

 

May my channels, my pathways, chakras

And every single ligament, bone, artery, muscle and fibre

In my body be blessed.

May all my chakras open,

Be healed, be filled with light and be unobstructed

So that I may gain the divine, compassion, wisdom,

Skillful means and full omniscience, just like Yourself.

愿护法加持气脉明点

身内韧带骨骼血管肌

七重密轮治愈令得开

密轮充满光明无障碍

成就洁圣慈悲智慧及

如同护法善巧觉悟地

 

I dedicate my prayers and my solicitations to You

That the world may be at peace,

All countries may have harmony.

May all the animals be safe, the waters be clear,

The environment become pure.

May all leaders decide for the benefit of others,

May all citizens have more concern for their neighbours than themselves,

May all that exists always abide in light, life and happiness

And our planet and all planets be safe.

以此祈愿祷告回向汝

并祈世界和平国泰安

动物安和水清世境净

愿诸国领袖为民着想

国民为利邻人少自利

有情安住光明乐自在

地球诸星安顺无灾损

 

I now chant Your sacred mantra,

Which are the sounds of power, compassion, skillful means,

Healing, meditation and wisdom.

治愈、禅定、智慧方便力

慈悲、善巧、圆满之音声

我今念诵护法神圣咒

 

And as I chant and recite Your holy mantra

May the reverberations and vibrations of the mantra

Pervade my body, my mind, my soul,

And everyone that I love,

May it even pervade those I view as enemies,

Be filled with love, light, forgiveness, protection

Growth, awareness and Enlightenment.

持汝神圣咒语之回响

充满身心口意及所爱

视如怨敌者亦得加持

充满慈爱、光明及饶恕

守护觉智内外令增长

并得成就无上佛陀境

 

Setrap, I keep You close to my heart

Grant me full protection from all that may be harmful

To me, my work, loved ones, environment

And especially my Enlightenment.

我当金甲衣安住心中

惠赐我等亲眷事业等

得汝守护力远离诸难

并得之直至成佛陀境

 

Setrap’s mantra  金甲衣护法心咒:

OM MA-HA YAK-CHA TSA SO-HA

(Recite daily 7 times, 21 times or more, depending on your time and schedule. Of course, the more the better.)

 

Colophon: At the request of Ms. Anne Jones, this prayer was composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche on 18 August 2012, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the protection and blessings of all spiritual practitioners.

Notes:

*In this case, diamonds represent indestructibility.

**Within Setrap’s sacred space abide a multitude of holy, awakened Beings and assistants, angels, dakinis and dakas. We are requesting all their blessings.

 


 

A brief description of Setrap:

· The red colour of Setrap’s body symbolises control over one’s inner and outer environments.

· The overbite of the lower-lip symbolises control of one’s faculties.

· Setrap has three luminous, penetrating eyes that represent seeing into the phenomena of the past, present and future, unobstructedly.

· His right hand raises a divine cudgel representing the elimination of our obstacles, pains, guilt and troubles.

· The left hand holds a lasso bound to a ‘human’; the binding of this ‘human’ represents the binding of all of our fears, destructive attitudes, self-created delusions and demons.

· He wears the armaments of a ‘leather cuirass’ likened to when we go into battle and wear armaments to protect ourselves; this represents that Setrap has incredible protective abilities for us.

· The psychic flames which arise from every pore of His body symbolise that wherever He abides, there is an impenetrable force of protection.

· The horse He rides is not a physical animal but an avatar of His mind, representing swiftness in fulfilling our spiritual quests.

· The diadem of ‘skulls’ is a reminder of the fallacious notion of permanency and the ever-present spectre of our own demise; hence, it reminds us to put full energy into our spiritual growth. This diadem of ‘skulls’ also symbolises that He will benefit the dearly departed when we pray for them.

· The five victory flags mounted on His helmet represents generosity, contentment, wisdom, stability and growth.

    Really appreciate Rinpoche to share the Protector Lord Setrap. Setrap is really powerful protector, can protect us immediately whenever and wherever . Also can clear our obstacles and troubles.

    i really love Setrap and share to anyone who surrounding us.

  12. Janice Kwok on Oct 23, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for composing this special prayer. I will print and share with all Setrap Puja attendees at Viva Home. This special prayer is easy to follow, understand and relate to their daily lives. Many of the attendees have commented they have benefitted from the Setrap puja and mantras and they have helped to bring their family and friends to attend. Its v rewarding to see them able to share this benefit quickly.

  13. Lester on Oct 11, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for composing this wonderful prayer! I wonder if it can be employed as a mini Setrap tea offering rite? Thanks again.

  14. Anne Jones on Sep 18, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche and followers. I cannot thank you enough for introducing Setrap to me. He has kept me safe from not inconsiderable negative and psychic attack. I have now shared the sacred mantras and prayers with hundreds of people all over the world. There are many in Norway, UK, USA, South Africa, Australia and more who are getting the benefit of his protection. I am inundated with thanks and gratitude for sharing these powerful prayers. We all have busy lives, we have much to challenge us in these turbulent days and knowing that we can trust our spiritual protection and wellbeing to such an eminent and powerful being of light is such a relief, leaving us to get on with our purpose and work. So a huge thank you and much gratitude. Anne Jones. annejones.org.

  15. kenny wong on Sep 18, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for giving us another beautiful composition of Dharmapala Setrap’s prayer. I have already started doing it in my office as part of my daily prayers.. very deep and meaningful.

  16. jamiekhoo on Sep 16, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Dear all,
    I’d like to share a very happy, lovely update with everyone. One of my friends, Anne Jones, an international author and new-age healer, has been incorporating this very same prayer into her workshops, seminars and e-courses on healing and protection. She is bringing Setrap to thousands of people through her books and workshops, introducing him as a very powerful practice of protection and healing. Since receiving a copy of the prayer, she has brought it out to people all over England, Norway and is now preparing to go into Africa. She also does teaching courses around Asia (Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan) and South America – so Setrap is going global now!

    I was very very fortunate to be there with Rinpoche as he composed this prayer very spontaneously. He composed every line based upon traditional sources and rituals. As such, the prayer is very complete and contains all the elements of a traditional kangsol (rituals and prayers to Dharma protectors) including invocation, praises, confession/regret, making offerings and the requests for protection.

    as such, this is a prayer that you can introduce to friends who are very, very new to Dharma and perhaps are not so familiar with the rituals yet. Instead of doing the traditional serkym prayers, they can simply offer a cup of drink here in this version of the prayers, which is of course, much more convenient for beginners.

    Happy prayers to all!

  17. Rena Wong on Sep 13, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for this beautiful & powerful Dharmapala Setrap prayer. Setrap prayer has help me during difficult moments of my life. Setrap is very powerful to remove obstacles and has shown me the way to overcome problems. I hope more people will come to know & practice Setrap prayer . May all be blessed by Dharmapala Setrap protection.

    With folded hands-in prayer
    Rena

    We are luck to have a Protector in our lives. Protector Setrap cares us like our mothers, help us in every way, protect us every moment, until we get enlightened. Protector and Guru are one. May those without Protector and Guru find their own. May every sentient beings especially those who is in pain and fear get protection and help from Protector Setrap!

  19. patsy on Sep 12, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for composing such a beautiful prayer and creating the cause for us to be connected to Lord Setrap!

  20. Su Ming on Sep 11, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    This praise was composed by Rinpoche himself 2 to 3 weeks ago. I was indeed very fortunate to be there as Rinpoche read it out and got the Chinese team to translate. I have referred this prayers to a few of our members. It is condense and easy to do.

  21. EricLee KHJB on Sep 11, 2012 at 9:59 am

    谢谢仁波切在一次为我们抽出那么宝贵的时间,编写了这一篇有关金甲衣护法的祈愿文,以便让更多的人能够得到金甲衣护法的庇佑,去除所以六道众生的障碍,能让许多的人,离苦得乐。

  22. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 10, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    The dharma protectors are truly a compassionate lot, always heearing our non stop prayers and wants and needs, and not getting angry in an unenlightened manner. Imagine people asking for all kinds of request day and night wanting to get this or that, and not losing one’s cool across the universe.

  23. grace (KSJC) on Sep 10, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Setrap Practice, it was powerful and beneficial for clearing our obstacles.It make us have clear picture on visualization of Setrap image when we chanting .

    • Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Oct 20, 2014 at 5:06 pm

      I still felt the fortunate to meet Rinpoche and received Lord Setrap practice from Rinpoche. It totally change my life in term of when I have difficulty, I don’t felt so in fear and lost way, I strongly felt the protection of Lord Setrap since many years. I will move on by transformation my mindset, I know Setrap and Rinpoche are there to bless me.

  24. Lim (KH JB) on Sep 10, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Thanks Rinpoche to take ur time to compose a new Setrap prayer for us and i feel that this prayer become more closely and suitable for this timing.

    May more and more peoples may connected to Setrap…

  25. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 9, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking your precious time to compose this prayer and share with us here.

    This prayer is more contemporary and is so closer to our hearts. It is meaningful and is worth our time to ponder over the contents time and again.

    I agree with Carmen that not many ppl can compose sacred prayer like this. For this prayer especially, only those with strong affinity with Lord Setrap such as Rinpoche can do so.

    Thank you Rinpoche once again for composing this prayer for our benefits.

  26. tfreon on Sep 9, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this beautiful prayer.
    The explanation on Setrap make me feel more close to Setrap and felt for Setrap’s Compassion and wisdom.

    Thank you
    With Holded Hand

  27. Sofi on Sep 8, 2012 at 11:27 pm

    Wow, as I read Rinpoche’s composure to Lord Setrap, I could feel the energy at the back of my head. Imagined or not, this is a beautiful prayer that brings instant connection to our modern times and understanding, especially the confession part and request for blessings. It takes deep understanding, connection and visualization to be able to write this meaningful prayer to Lord Setrap. I thank Rinpoche for your compassion to always help us in ways to deepen our connection to the Buddhas. With folded hands, Sofi.

  28. DR on Sep 8, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    A beautiful prayer complete with praises and request. A protector of Gaden Shartse, propitiated by 1,200 monks daily. How fortunate we are to be able to even recite his name. We would never even have heard of him if Rinpoche had not brought him to us. Thank you Rinpcohe.

  29. Low ksjc on Sep 8, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your version of Setrap prayer with us. Even tough the prayer is condense, it is very clear that, every verse that was written indeed have a profound meaning to life with correct motivation and the right view for the correct path to dharma practice.I sincerely believe that by reciting this prayer,it would help anyone who practice it ,to clear our obstacles and lead us to the correct path of thought transformation which we truly in need now..

  30. Sabina G. on Sep 8, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    This is extremely beautiful! Thank You so much Rinpoche!

  31. Uncle Eddie on Sep 8, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Our Protector Lord Setrap, though appears to us with a wrathful and fierce countenance, this fury is not directed towards any beings, but aimed instead at destroying our inner and secret negative defilements of attachment, anger, ignorance and our self-cherising attitudes which bring us so much sufferings. Protector Lord setrap is actually an emanation of Buddha Amitaba, who acts with compassion and objectless equanmity towards all beings, and said to cherish all beings above himself. Dharmapala Setrap has been the enlightened Dharma protector for the illustrious Gaden Shartse Monastry for 600 years. Thank you Rinpoche for your endless compassion, care and love, and for your beautiful Setrap prayer too, illustrated herewith for the benefit of all spiritual practitioners.

  32. Carmen on Sep 8, 2012 at 12:39 am

    What a completely beautiful composition put together with peaceful and serene words. Thank you for this, Rinpoche!

    I was thinking about it and realised not any Tom, Dick and Harry can compose a prayer to Dharmapala Setrap just like that. It shows what capabilities, qualities and attainments Rinpoche has, and how fortunate we are to have a high lama of Rinpoche’s calibre to be walking amongst us in today’s society.

    Love,
    Carmen

  33. benji on Sep 7, 2012 at 5:55 pm

It is like you know our innermost fears, pain and yearnings! Then you lead us to pray to transcend the mundane. i also love to read from the prayer cards you composed years ago – i love reading the prayer to holy Vajrayogini! THANK YOU again Rinpoche!

  34. benji on Sep 7, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. The prayers you compose are always so beautiful – so meaningfuland inspiring! It is like you just know our innermost pain, fears and yearnings!

    Very beautiful prayer for clearing our negative thoughts, attitude, and developing good thoughts for others. I like this very much.

    May our works, our lives, our bounty increase,
    So that we may be of service to others.
    May everyone who abides in this abode
    Have bountiful growth, prosperity
    And spiritual, along with worldly wealth, if it suits them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful story. I believe miracles happened because we believe in Buddha and Protector. We may not be able to see or understand how it happens but I believe with the blessing of Buddha, it will happen. Importantly we have the right motivation and towards the benefit of others.

    Rejoice Mitra in his endeavours to use his own language to give dharma teachings and introduce Dorje Shugden to his Nepali friends, helped to install a Dorje Shugden statue in their work hall. This is wonderful and may his good aspirations come true i.e. to spread the dharma with his own language by doing more and serving the Nepali communities.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and I shall be more compassion to everyone and keep this in mind:
    We need to take the time to teach everyone dharma, prayers and give them hope at their level.
    No one who wishes to learn dharma should be left out.

    Since young i loved reading ghost stories ,I am scared but not now as i grow older.As i believe we do not disturb them, they will too not disturb us.They do exist after all ….trust and have faith in whatever religion we practice for sure and we will not be connected to them and have protection by our powerful protector.We do love the things that scare us ,maybe out of curiosity wanted to know more. Thats it nothing more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and Shakila for explanation in details , different unseen beings or ghost.

    Looking at those few photos i could imagine ,those chickens had suffered
    so much pain,is the consumption of battery farmed eggs. Its good to be on vegetarian so as to less killing of live stocks and eggs onto our plates The egg industry hides its practices, no one knows about the cruelty till they saw it with own eyes and that many people might think twice of eating farmed eggs.The hens were crammed in small dirty cages… so sick and exhausted.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Rejoice to see Nepalese learning up the prayers of Dorje Shugden who can help them remove obstacles that are hindering their spiritual progress. Thank you, Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and to Mitra for the hard work in bringing Dorje Shugden and Dharma to many people.

    Thank you for this wonderful write up about communal living with the Dharma family members. It makes complete sense to get to know the people whom we work closely with both during and after working hours. It is essential to understand their thinking process and mannerism to cut down any unnecessary misunderstanding; and better still, capitalize on each others’ strength for better results. It also makes “work” less stressful. This is totally THE thing for the people who has no huge family commitments. This article also gives me a glimpse into Rinpoche’s vision of creating a community living. Fast forward 7 years, Rinpoche’s vision is manifesting as Kechara Forest Retreat! Rejoice!

    Thank you for the wonderful compilation of Rinpoche’s teachings and sharings that owned the year 2013! Each post, tweet and youtube is very valuable because of the profound Dharma from Rinpoche that not only serves as our daily guidance but also topics for us to contemplate and meditate on. I will bookmark this page so that I can refer to these teachings again and again.

    ***Tashi Lhunpo Monastery***

    Located in Shigatse, the 2nd largest city of Tibet, Tashi Lunpo is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist Gelugpa lineage monastery that continues to practice Dorje Shugden without discrimination!
    Founded by the 1st Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun Drup in 1447. It is one of the six big monasteries of the Gelugpa lineage, it covers almost 300,000 square meters (3,229,279 sq. ft.). Since the 4th Panchen Lama took over as the head of the monastery, Tashi Lhunpo has been the seat of all Panchen Lamas up until this day… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/temples/tashi-lhunpo-monastery

    How Tibetan leadership treats a sponsor (jindak)

    As a kid, all of us (both Rinpoche and my family) had very little personal funds. We didn’t even have enough to have a Dharma centre, so Rinpoche would give Dharma teachings in various people’s houses. A portion of the funds raised would always be redirected to the monasteries for whatever requests they had made. Today, none of us are allowed to go to the monasteries we have raised so much sponsorship for… http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
