Glorious sun of the teachings, all-pervasive like space,
Your supreme intelligence shines out in brilliant splendour.
O, sovereign of the primordial, co-emergent wisdom of great bliss,
Khakhyab Rangjung Dorje, to you I pray!

A short prayer of invocation and aspiration addressed to Amitābha, the Buddha of Limitless Light, and Avalokiteśvara, the embodiment of compassion. The prayer concludes with the mantra oṃ amitābha hrīḥ.
