The Peaceful & Calming Victory Flag: Melodious Song of the Battle Victorious over Maras



By His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje


A garland of dawn's glowing moonlight this wisdom,
profound and clear, sheds luminous joy.

Virtuous signs of radiant clarity,
a cluster of lively moons turns in the gracious dance of emptiness,
 free of fabrication, and luminosity, cool and fresh;

A broad and calming shade of benefit 
and happiness permeates the whole universe.

The sweet melody of auspicious virtue and excellence 
for all beings resonates as the glorious ornament of the three realms.

The two rising curves of pure gold are great joy's loving, radiant smile;

The vibrant blue reflects the ultimate,
dharmakaya lit by a vigorous and youthful sun; 
sphere of light, this hand draws

And plays, gathering into the glide of an image the unity of the profound and vast, 
the peaceful and soothing.

Throughout existence, 
may the victory banner of the Buddha's teachings resound its famous and melodious song.






In order to liberate [beings] from the four maras, this aspiration prayer was made by the seventeenth one to hold the Karmapa's lineage, [Ogyen Trinley Dorje]. With advice from Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, translated by Michele Martin copyright © 2000.
