Having gained this supreme vessel ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to study, reflect and meditate,
Tirelessly, both day and night, without ever straying into idleness,
In order to free oneself and others from this ocean of samsara,
Having gained this supreme vessel — a free, well-favoured human life, so difficult to find.
