Protector, I am deluded by ignorance and so have broken and spoiled my sacred vows. Guru, lord protect me! I take refuge in the foremost Vajradhara, the quintessence of great compassion, the leader of all living beings. I confess all transgressions of the root and branch vows of body, voice and mind. Cleanse and purify me, I pray, of all accumulated sins, obscurations, faults, failing, and impurities.

By the merit of this, may I swiftly reach the stage of Vajrasattva and place then upon that stage all beings without exception.

In the Three Jewels I take refuge and before them reveal all wrongs I have done. I rejoice in the virtues of living beings and keep in my heart remembrance of the Buddha’s enlightenment. Until I, too, have attained Buddhahood, I rely upon the Enlightened One, His Teachings, and exalted Assembly. I am resolved to become a Buddha in order to bring about my own and others’ wellbeing. Awakening thus this aspiration to supreme liberation, I invite all beings to share in my spiritual career. May I accomplish all the wondrous deeds of a Bodhisattva and win enlightenment for their sake.
