A One-Verse Integrating Practice for Six Sessions

(1985 Literal Translation)

(Thun-drug-gi rnal-'byor mdor-bsdus-pa)
by Ngulchu Dharmabhadra (dNgul-chu Dharmabhadra)

translated by Alexander Berzin, 1985

From my sublime teachers and the Three Supreme Gems,
I take safe direction.
With myself clear as a deity, holding vajra and bell,
I present you with offerings.
Upholding the measures of sutra and tantra,
I restrain myself from a wide array of faulty deeds.
Amassing within all constructive measures,
I fully benefit wandering beings through the four types of giving.
