I PAY HOMAGE TO MANJUSHRI! %
The Buddha, the Transcendent Conqueror, spoke thus: %
“He is endowed with the kaya of timeless wakefulness, and is self-arisen.%
His eye of pristine wakefulness is stainless.%
The illumination of his pristine wakefulness is vivid and glistening. %
OM A RA PA TSA NA YA DA NAMA! %
One endowed with the kaya of timeless wakefulness, to you I bow.%
He explains the teachings of all the perfect and complete buddhas. %
The Transcendent Conqueror Manjushri Jnanasattva’s characteristics have been genuinely imparted!” %
The Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, the Thus Gone One, the Tathagata Shakyamuni %
uttered these words, and at this, his discourse was complete. %
The Mahaguru of Lhodrak concealed this on a stairway to heaven.
Afterwards, Guru Chhokyi Wangchuk revealed this hidden treasure.
