From the protector of beings Changchup Dorje,
You who received and realised the essential instructions on ripening and liberation,
Supremely victorious, glorious master of crazy wisdom,
Yeshe Dorje, at your feet I pray!

In the perfected Buddha realm you are the blood drinking Heruka,

In the Raksha country of Chamara, you are Pema Thötreng Tsal

In this country of Tibet you achieved the vajra body of rainbows,

Jigmé Yeshé Dorje, to you I pray!
