So nam yon tan gya tshol zhing
De zhin sheg la chhag tshal lo


Praise to shakyamuni Buddha

To the founder, the endowed transcendent destroyer, the one gone beyond, the foe destroyer, the completely perfected, fully awakened being, perfect in knowledge and in good conduct, Sugata, knower of the world, supreme guide of human beings to be tamed, teacher of gods and human beings; to you, the completely and fully awakened one, the endowed transcendent destroyer, the glorious conqueror, the subduer from the Shakya clan, I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge.

When, O supreme amongst humans, you were born on this earth,
You paced out seven strides,
Then said, "I am supreme in this world."
To you, who were wise then, I prostrate.

With pure bodies, form supremely pure;
Wisdom Ocean, like a golden mountain;
Fame that blazes in the three worlds,
Winner of the best – Lord, to you I prostrate.

The savior having great compassion,
The founder having all understanding,
The field of merit with qualities like a vast ocean-
To you, the one gone to thusness, I prostrate.
