A “Prayer for Internet Practice” has made its way to the web – with its own Facebook page, naturally. “This prayer,” the page explains, “was requested of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche to help dharma students surf the waves of attraction and distraction on the Internet and turn them to practice.”

It’s not the first time Rinpoche has addressed the online realm so pointedly – see also his “Social Media Guidelines.

Prayer for Internet Practice

Namo ākāśagarbhāya oṃ ārya kamari mauli svāhā

Oh bodhisattva mahasattva!

As I prostrate at your lotus feet,

I offer everything I can name and understand,

And all my mind’s conjurings,

As well as everything that exists, inconceivable and undreamed of,

Throughout immeasurable space.

To you, who are the very essence of space,

I offer praise.

Bless this cyber-space with comfort, bliss and enlightenment—

May it be of benefit to myself and others.

Unburden our misgivings;

Purify all that sullies and despoils us,

And the profligate displays,

That throng and colour this space.
