You have perfected all the precious qualities of discipline and learning, and hold all the classes of Buddha’s teaching,
Graced with the blessing of the lama Mañjuśrī, you are a vidyādhara master
Supreme at conveying the definitive secret teaching of Dzogpachenpo—the Vajra Essence.
Glorious lama, at your feet I pray!
