“You turned the golden wheel of the stainless doctrine of Khenpo Shantarakshita, Lopon Padmasambhava, and Dharma King Trisong Deutsen all over the world.
You established centers that uphold the study and practice of the great secret Vajrayana, which continuously follow the cycles of the sun and moon.
You made glorious gifts of empowerments, pith instructions, and the three wisdoms to students everywhere.
Great Khenpo, Glorious Wisdom, you are the protector of beings, the Lord of Dharma, and the Supreme Lama‰ÛÓcertainly you are a son of the Buddha.”
