This Seven Line Prayer to Padmasambhava reads:
To the North-west land of Urgyen,
Born from a lotus flower,
Oh wondrous, the highest siddhi has been attained!
The renowned Padmasambhava,
Who is encircled with an entourage of Dakinis
Following your example,
Please manifest here and bestow your blessing
Guru padma siddhi hūṃ༔.
Finishing with the mantra oṃ āḥ hūṃ vajra guru padma siddhi hūṃ༔ depicted in both Ancient Lantsa Sanskrit and corresponding Tibetan Uchen scripts.
