While he was meditating at [[rangs mtsho]], his understanding blossomed forth, and he obtained the faculty of prescience.

He practiced extensively austerities at [[sha 'ug stag sgo]] (near sa skya), mkhar C:and other localities. At the age of 18, in [R:197] the year Iron-Ape (lcags spre—1260 A.D.) he obtained the doctrine of [[snying thig]] from [[seng ge dbon po]] at seng ge rgyab. He practiced meditation, and during six days he had a vision, by day and by night, of [[Vajrasattva]]. During the initiation ceremony, he met in a dream the Teachers of his Spiritual Lineage, and obtained (their) blessing. At the age of 23, he obtained many hidden precepts ([[gter chos]]) such as the Vajravārahī ([[rdo rje phag mo]]) and others, from [[sangs rgyas ras pa]]. He had a vision of Vajravārahī.

At dung lung he heard the voices of ḍākiṇīs. At ka ba can, he saw in the sky Vārahī ([[phag mo]]) and [[za lung pa]]. At the age of 26, he obtained numerous instructions, while attending on [['khrul zhig dar ma]], [[sprul sku rgya mtsho]] and others. He also obtained many instructions from [[mdo bo ras pa]] of mtshur phu, and [['khrul zhig dbon po]] of dgon rtse. He practiced meditation at mkhan pa ljongs, mkhan pa gling, seng ge rdzong, kun bzangs gling and mkhar chu, and labored for the welfare of living beings. <br>
