This prayer to the eight supreme vidyadharas, ‘A Constant Stream of Blessings’, was composed by the Dzogchen yogi Jikmé Trinlé Özer, for whom no obstacles due to doubts ever occurred since he had been properly empowered into the mandala of the secret mantra yana. He attained confidence in this prayer, which arose instantaneously at the request of Döndup Gyatso, a Rabjampa of the Gelugpa tradition at Kokonor in the north. By the power of the merit of writing this prayer, may the blessings of the vidyadharas enter the mind-streams of all with whom he has a connection.
