A poem by Glen Desmier

A poem by Glen Desmier

This is a poem I wrote about Namkhai Norbu based around three poems of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche;

In the expanse of the sky

No matter how long the room’s been dark, an hour or a million years,

The moment the lamp of awareness is lit, the darkness disappears.

In the expanse of the sky, may Wisdom increase!

You are the medicine, it’s your Love that sets me free!

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

THAT GUIDES MY LIFE!

Look to your experience, in dreams, and in sleep.

The surface waves may swirl around,

But there’s silence in the deep.

Whenever I think of you, I merge my mind with yours.

Body, speech, and mind, relax,

Opening The Three Doors!

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

THAT GUIDES MY LIFE!

A pair of glasses looks outside, a mirror reflects what’s within,

Recognise what doesn’t change, at the end and when you begin.

In Dzogchen we integrate, it’s the way of a practitioner!

And so everywhere is the space, of Samantabhadra.

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

YOU ARE THE CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THAT CLEAR LIGHT. 

YOU ARE THE LUMINOSITY THAT LIGHTS MY LIFE!

THAT GUIDES MY LIFE!

 

 Here is the Source material for the poem:

“No matter how long the room has been dark,

an hour or a million years,

the moment the lamp of awareness is lit,

the entire room becomes luminous.

You are that luminosity.

You are that clear light.”

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Look to your experience in dreams to know how you will fare in death. Look to your experience of sleep to discover whether or not you are truly awake.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
