All were endowed with great prosperity. One night, the nun had a dream in which and immaculate man with a white complexion came and placed three times on her head a crystal vase adorned with five syllables, symbolizing the five Buddhas.

The vase emanated beams of light, and she was able to see the three worlds clearly.

At that moment, the dakinis and sages showered praise and offerings on the infant, and from the sky gods proclaimed: When the child was seven years old, bursting with the energies of wisdom, he insisted that his mother allow him to go see the scholars so he could debate them about religious doctrine.


When he had permisson, he rushed to his father, King Uparaja, and requested to meet the scholars. He debated with five hundred scholars, none of whom could defeat him.

Vajra of the Sky, we pray to you. Homage to the realization of confidence in the self-awareness!

The [nature of] awareness is free from existence, And various arisings of self-appearances are ceaseless. So all the phenomenal existents are arising as the pure land of Dharmakaya, And all dorjw arisings are liberated in the nature [of awareness] itself.
