DREN CHHOG SHA KYAY TOG LA SOL WA DEB
I supplicate the crown ornament of the supreme guide, Shakyamuni:
TEN PA YUN RING NAY PAR JIN GYIY LOB
Grant your blessings that the Teachings may remain for a very long time!
TEN ZHAB TUED PAY LA LO LA SOG PAY
Through bowing to the exalted feet of the Teacher, may the barbarians and so on,

I supplicate the Transcendent Conqueror, the King of Medicine:

In four different ways of accumulating, bewilderment and disturbing emotions flourish and expand:

may the age of sickness and epidemics be pacified!

I supplicate the sacred queen Arya Tara:

The conditions of untimely death, obstacles, and injury:
CHHI NANG JIG GYAY YO T’HRUG SEL WAR SHOG
May both outer and inner forms of the eight great fears, agitation, and disturbance be dispeled!
NYIG MAY DRO LA LHAG PAR T’HUG TSE WAY
You who have exceeding affection and love for the beings of this degenerate age,
TSA SUM SRUNG MAR CHAY LA SOL WA DEB
I supplicate the Three Roots, together with all the Dharma Guardians:
BOE KHAM YUN DU DE WAR JIN GYIY LOB
grant your blessings that there may be happy times in Tibet and Kham!
TEN DZIN SHAB TEN TEN PA DAR ZHING GYAY
May the exalted feet of the holders of the Teachings remain firm, and may the Teachings spread and flourish!
TEN SRUNG T’HU DEN JIN DAG PAL JOR P’HEL
May the glory of the mighty protectors and benefactors of the Teachings increase!
CHHOE ZHIN DRUB PAY SAM DOEN YID ZHIN DRUB
May all of our activities, wishes, and aims that are in accord with the Dharma be fulfilled and accomplished!
GAL KYEN BAR CHHAY KUN DANG DREL WAR SHOG
May we be separated from all adverse circumstances and obstacles!
NAM KAR GE TSA DRO LA YONG SU NGO
I completely dedicate all these extremely pure roots of virtue to all beings:
KUN KYANG NYUR DU SANG GYAY T’HOB PAR SHOG
may all of them without exception swiftly attain buddhahood!
Thus, one born in these final times in a mantric family, Choying Dorje, with completely pure motivation, prayed in this way, and likewise, may it be accomplished. Mangalam!
