Salutation to the Guru. On the tenth day of the monkey month in the monkey year, in the green-floored middle story of Samye monastery when the Vajradhatu mandala was meditated on and revealed by Padma Sambhava, he spoke this prayer of aspiration (for the benefit of beings) and said that the king and all his subjects (King Trisong Deutsan and the rest of the twenty-five inner disciples) should practise it with vigour. Those who come in future times must also always practise it one-pointedly.
