who have been your mother over and over,
repeatedly make potent prayers
again and again with love and compassion,
and listen when the great conch shell of Dharma is blown.
No matter what forms of impediments and obstacles occur,
such as distractions of joy and sadness, or feeling high or low,
make intense prayers with single-minded fervor
to the sublime wish-fulfilling jewels of the Teacher and the Three Jewels.
