Some of us serve our selfish endeavours, some of us serve others and some of us don’t serve at all. Whatever the case is at this point, the real enemy is the mind that wishes happiness for itself and not anyone else. When people, environment, circumstances and facilities are used strictly directly and indirectly for our own ends, then THAT is the real cause to all unhappiness that arises.
I bow down to the Lord of Ferocious Wisdom,
Who shows a horrific form mirroring our ego and it’s graspings,
stamping on the very causes of our sufferings and it’s instincts
under your 16 sacred feet.
Your 9 faces and 34 arms are but representations
of your skilfull means to liberate, nurture and conquer
all that we percieve as pleasure when in actuality
being deluded, they are the very causes of our personal Samsara.
Knowing this, I hold my three sets of vows, Tantric commitments, Bodhicitta,
and Guru Devotion as supreme and see your sacred form in all that appears
Lord of Wisdom in whom incredible abilities are inherent in Your practice,
to avert and counter samsara during the degenerate period,
I humbly bow down to you, Great Yamantaka!
