Chapter Four

How wonderful!

Then, by the strength of your forceful previous aspirations,

When the Buddhist king Trisong Détsen was unable to tame the land
for the temple construction at Samyé,

The great scholar Bodhisattva
Foretold that inviting you, the Master from India, [would lead
to success].

Important messengers were sent to you with gold and
proclamations.

Upon meeting the messengers, you discussed the matter
And decided that the time was right to go to Tibet.

You sent the king’s three messengers on before you.

When you reached Nepal, gods and demons
Created many crises, miraculous appearances, and obstacles.

When you reached Mong-youl, great difficulties arose.

You meditated upon [the deity] Bitotamma for seven days

And all the obstacles dissolved naturally.

You bound under oath the gods and cannibal demons of Tibet:

Some acknowledged their faults and prayed,

Some offered you their vitality mantra,

Some made promises, some paid respect,

Some accepted responsibility to protect the doctrine,

Some revealed their [invisible] forms [to human beings], and
some kept their vows.

When you reached Tsang-rong, gods and humans greeted you;
In Tö-loong, everyone welcomed you.

You performed miracles; ambrosia flowed from the water of your
accomplishment.

All who met you were moved to faith and confidence.

At Ombu Grove, the king received you.

Although the king was Gentle Splendor incarnate,
His intense arrogance prevented him from making obeisance to you.

You sang the song of your own greatness and power,
And performed miracles, moving the king to faith.

He prayed and prostrated before you, and invited you to sit on a
golden throne.

He presented you with precious things and wondrous offerings.

All gods and humans of Tibet paid homage to you.

Evil government ministers created foul obstacles;
Religious government ministers consulted with you and were helpful.

of the Master from Oddiyana: The Invitation from the King of Tibet and
Binding the Gods and Demons Under Oath.

CHAPTER Three

How wonderful!

Then you meditated in India’s eight sacred charnel grounds,

Where you saw the deities and received their prophecies.

Having reached perfection, you demonstrated various signs of
accomplishment.

You eradicated demons and defeated challenges from non-Buddhists.

You traveled to Zahor, where you induced Princess Mandarava
to enter the gate of your teachings.

The king’s punishment was to execute you in fire.

That pyre turned into a lake; you demonstrated many miracles.

You had attained a vajra body; nothing at all could harm you.

The king, in amazement, was moved to faith and respect,

And acknowledged regretfully his wrongdoing.

You then converted the whole kingdom of Zahor to Buddhism.

At Maratika Cave you meditated to gain immortality.

You perfected the practice of longevity and met Buddha Lord of
Infinite Life.

Birth and death lost their hold on you; your body matured into
immutability.

You journeyed to the five families of enlightenment’s pure lands,
such as Dense Design,

And there you consulted with the Joyful Buddhas:
“Apart from this mind, there is no Buddha,” they said.

You meditated upon Great Seal in Parping

And attained accomplishment of Great Seal.

While you meditated in Yari-gong,
A debate with non-Buddhists was held in Vajra Seat [Bodhgaya].

The dakinis advised the five hundred great scholars there
To invite you and your entourage to Vajra Seat.

With miraculous power you subdued all the non-Buddhists,

Established the true doctrine in India,
And preserved the Way of Secret Mantra at Vajra Seat.

This completes Chapter Three from The Immaculate White Lotus: The Life
of the Master from Oddiyana: Preserving the Doctrine in India and Con-
verting the Land to Buddhism.

CHAPTER Two

How wonderful!

Then you met the Buddha Shakyamuni’s
Supreme attendant, Ananda,

From whom you took ordination.
You assumed the attributes of a fully-ordained monk.

In the presence of the master Prabha-hasti,
You trained in the three yoga [tantras].

From such masters as Garab Dorjé, Buddha-guhya,
Shri Singha, Manjushri-mitra,
Humkara, Vimalamitra,
Dhana Sanskrita, and Nagarjuna

You received the transmissions, meditation techniques, empower-
ments, and pith instructions

For the Heart Essence of Great Completion,

The Secret Essence Tantra [Sanskrit: Guhyagarbha), the tantra of
Great Sublime [Tibetan: Chemchok] Héruka,

The tantra for enlightenment’s body, Gentle Spendor [Sanskrit:
Manjushri);

For enlightenment’s speech, Lotus;
For enlightenment’s mind, Yongdak;
For enlightenment’s qualities, Ambrosia;
For enlightenment’s activity, Vajra Dagger [Tibetan: Dorjé Purba];

The tantra of Offering and Praise;
And the tantra of the Curse of Wrathful Mantras.

Further, from many accomplished masters

You received the full instructions for outer and inner Secret Mantra
practice.

The qualities of your training were outstanding and you gained
accomplishment.
