Chanted by Geshe Chongtul Rinpoche
The prayer chanted on this CD is different from the prostration prayer within the Bon Nine Preliminary Practices. The name of this prostration prayer is Kon Zhi Chak, which means "calling the four precious lamas from afar".
The first master we call to, our own root lama, is an example of a precious jewel. Whatever you wish for from the precious jewel, you will receive. The second master is precious like the fleeting and exquisite beauty of a rainbow. Our third master is an example of the very rare daytime star we can only see but occasionally. Our fourth master is pure like the lotus flower that grows from the mud but is never soiled.
This is the special prayer for calling upon your teacher from afar.
Kon Zhi Chak was written in the 10th century.
