Sealed in secret

Wandering in saṃsāra

is always suffering,

and it is extremely difficult

to meet the excellent Dharma,

so at this time when auspicious

connections have come

into alignment right now,

you must fulfill your

long-range aspirations.

 

Reflect again and again

on the abyss of the evil destinies

and the benefits of the pleasant destinies,

the defects of the intermediate state

and the benefits of liberation,

the defects of turmoil

and the benefits of solitude,

and strive to take things in hand.

 

With pure moral discipline

and unimpaired sacred commitments,

after practicing by turns listening,

reflection, and the cultivation

of meditation on a nectar-like

sublime Dharma such as this,

before long you will become

a king of Dharma.

 

After accumulating the assembly

of primordial awareness

during meditative equipoise,

and accumulating the assembly

of merit during post-meditation,

you will achieve the truth body

and perfectly benefit yourself,

and achieve the form bodies

and bring benefit to others.

 

The stains of the truth body will be cleansed

by the assembly of primordial awareness,

and the excellence of the form bodies will be produced

by the assembly of merit.

 

By the force of prayer,

the enlightened actions

to benefit others will be vast,

effortless, and spontaneous.

 

The absolute sublime lamp

that removes the darkness

of unknowing has permanently

entered your heart,

my fortunate child,

and you must make the experience

of the primordial awareness

of blissful emptiness blaze!

 

This is sealed in secret

from those who are not receptive.

 

maṅgalaṃ bhavantu śubhaṃ
