Calling the Lama

Although we have attained a precious human rebirth with leisure and resources, we waste it in vain,
Constantly distracted by the activities of this hollow life.
When it comes to accomplishing the great goal of liberation, we are overcome by laziness
And return empty-handed from a land filled with jewels.
Lama, think of us, behold us swiftly with compassion.
Bless us that we may make this life meaningful.

from Devotion that Moves the Heart - A Prayer Calling the Lama From Afar
by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, the great Ri Me master
