Song From the Heart, by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche Originally published in Bodhi Magazine, Vol. 8-2.
The supplication to the Dakpo Kagyu lineage was written by a very diligent and great practitioner named Pengar Jampal Zangpo. He wrote it when he was practicing on a small island in a lake called Nam-tso, or “Sky Lake,” in northern Tibet. That winter there was a very heavy snowfall and he got stuck on the island. During those days of intense practice and deep solitude, he sang this supplication that emerged from his heart.
