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