At the Tiger’s Lair, in the cave called ‘Fulfilment of the Lion’s Wishes’,
You subjugated malicious tīrthikas, māras and damsi demons;
In power-places, amid snow and rock, you hid the great termas,
Gazing in compassion on sentient beings still to come in this degenerate age:
To Dorjé Drolö Tsal, we pray!
