HUM

On the northwest border of the Land of Orgyen

Upon a blooming lotus stalk is

An adept of amazing and supreme feats (siddhis)

Widely known as the Lotus Born,

Encircled by dakini retinues:

I will practice as you did.

Please come and bring your waves of splendor;

Guru bring me siddhis. HUM

(English translation: ” Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse”  by Anne Carolyn Klein)
