Relying on a Spiritual Friend
Residing in the unborn expanse of reality,
inseparable from the Pure Bodies of Truth, Glory, and Compassion,
are the Holders of the Lineage of Definitive Meaning—
the awareness of my own true essence.
Acceptance of Buddha Nature is my unconditional prostration.
I make extensive offerings without concepts of self, giving, and recipient.
I confess all transgressions and abandoned commitments
and rejoice in the complete transcendence of the cycle of suffering.
Noble Friend, please turn the Three Wheels of Pure Dharma!
I pray that you remain in your unchanging nature,
and dedicate both accumulations to Great Benefit.
Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout the universe
and the perfect Lama, my good and truly Noble Friend,
please look upon me with compassion.
Please pacify my faults completely.
Please awaken genuine insights within me.
Please dispel all obstacles to the practice of the Great Middle Way.
By this virtuous activity,
may all beings perfectly accumulate merit and wisdom
and obtain the Two Forms,
arising from the union of wisdom and compassion.
 Merit and wisdom
 (1) attachment to this body; (2) mistrusting the law of karma; (3) clinging to samsara as a source of happiness; (4) thinking that my own needs are most important; and (5) perceiving temporary phenomena as truly existent
 (1) spiritual cultivation is essential; (2) the law of karma in inviolable; (3) samsara is a source of suffering; (4) the needs of others are more important than mine; and (5) all phenomena are mere mental appearances and ultimate truth is Buddha Nature.

 The Two Forms are the Truth Body (dharmakaya), arising from wisdom, and the Form Bodies (rupakaya), arising from merit. The Form Bodies are the Body of Glory (sambhogakaya) and the Body of Compassion (nirmanakaya).
