Six Yogas of Naropa

Naropa sang this vajra song summarizing the six yogas:

 



I bow at the feet of the kind lord.

You, Marpa Lotsawa of Tibet,

With a free and well-favored body

And a mind of sadness this summer, hear these words.


Tummo Yoga

The method of resting the mind is confidence in the view.
The method of resting the body is the pith of meditation.
Outside is only the illusory form of devas.
Inside is just the three nadls and four cakras.
elow is the A stroke, candali.
Above is the form of the letter HAM.
Above and below are the wheels of prana.
Practice holding the life force in a vaselike manner.
In between the letters, experience bliss, emptiness, and luminosity.
This we call the oral instructions of candali.
Lotsawa, have you captured prana with precision?

Light Yoga

In the period between falling asleep and dreaming, 
In that state of delusion, which is the essence of dharmakaya,
Inexpressible bliss and luminosity are experienced. 
Then, seal that with luminosity 
And the deep sleep of luminosity occurs. 
This we call the oral instructions of luminosity. 
Lotsawa, have you realized mind as unborn?


Dream Yoga

When experiencing the confusion of dreams, 
Visualize at the throat the syllable OM radiating light.
Through the creation of habitual thoughts:
If you dream of a man, he is said to be a male ghost;
If you dream of a woman, she is a female ghost;
If you dream of animals, they are regarded as nagas;
If your dream is happy, you feel exalted;
If your dream is unhappy, you feel unhappy. 
If you do not realize that ghosts arise from the root of mind,
You will not exhaust the ghosts of discursive thought. 
Self-liberating good and evil is the meaning of this teaching.
This we call the oral instructions of dreams. 
Lotsawa, have you realized their nature?

Illusory-Body Yoga

Outer appearance is only illusion.
Inner experience is inexpressible.
Day and night, experiences are simply nirmanakaya.
This we call the oral instructions of illusory body.
Lotsawa, have you experienced revulsion toward attachment?

Transformation Yoga

The eight doorways are the openings of samsara.
The one doorway is the path of mahamudra.
When the eight doorways are closed and the one doorway is opened,
With the bow of prana, the arrow of mind
Is propelled by the bowstring HIK
And so consciousness is shot through the aperture of Brahma.
This we call the oral instructions of the ejection of consciousness.
Lotsawa, can you stop your prana at the right time?

Transference Yoga

When the time to leave the body comes,
One finds another body as an authentic sacred object.
Then the seed syllable rides the horse of prana.
By means of the wheels of prana,
One abandons one's body like an empty house
And enters the other body, which is the essence of nirmanakaya.
This we call the oral instructions of the transference of consciousness.
Lotsawa, is your prana workable?

Bardo Yoga

The mind at the time of dreaming
Should be mixed with the mind of pardo.
Its essence is sambhogakaya.
Both the pure and impure aspects of the two kayas of form
Are attained when the time of the pardo comes.
The pith of dream pardo is the mixing and ejecting of consciousness.
This we call the oral instructions of pardo.
Lotsawa, are you trained in the pardo?

It is necessary to study the outer and inner teachings.
Comprehending them will enable you to overcome the two extremes.
When uncertainty as to existence and nonexistence is cut,
That is the one path from which one does not stray.
On this path, how could there be sadness?

Thus      Naropa sang.
