Mahakala Blessing at the Main Tibetan Temple in Dharamsala

I bow to the glorious guru who bestows supreme powers,

and to the four blessing deities who dispel outer and inner hindrances

and enhance good qualities.

In the land surrounded by a fence of snow mountains

You are the source of all good and happiness

Tenzin Gyatso, Lord Chenrezig

May you live until the cycle of existence comes to an end.

All my accumulation of virtue

I do not at all claim as my own,

but dedicate to the supreme realm of reality

for the sake of all beings without exception.
