Ocean of Blessings: A Prayer to the Lineage of the Teachers of the Graded Path of Avalokiteshvara
This prayer to the lineage masters of the Avalokiteshvara sādhana employs a typical structure, beginning with the truth-body teacher (in this case, Amitābha) and the enjoyment-body teacher (Avalokiteshvara), and then listing each of the manifestation-body teachers from Mitrayogin down in chronological order. Each master is described in four lines, followed by an aspirational refrain.

Information about Unicode Tibetan and the digitization of this text
As the only available unicode Tibetan text at the time, Nitartha International's version of the Paro Edition of the gdams ngag mdzod is provided here. However, note that it has not been thoroughly edited and that there may also be mistakes introduced through the conversion process. Eventually we will provide a fully edited version of the entire Shechen Edition, entered and edited multiple times by Pulahari Monastery in Nepal, but as of fall 2017 that project has not been finished. Note that the folio numbers that appear throughout were added by Nitartha Input Center at the time of input.
