Led by these and the rest, in every sphere of the universe throughout the ten directions, Sugatas, Arahat, Samyeksambuddhas, however, many exist such as the Fully Awakened Ones who are alive and abide, I beseech them all to heed me.


In this birth and throughout births that have endlessly begun, in all places of birth while spinning through the cycle of existence I have done wrong deeds throughout every realm, have provoked them to be done, and rejoiced at their being done. Is have stolen the wealth from places of offering, the wealth from those intent on virtue, and the wealth from those intent on virtue in the ten directions, or have provoked such a theft, or have rejoiced in the theft. I have committed the five unbounded heinous actions, have provoked their commitment or have rejoiced at their commitment. I have been involved in actually taking the path of the ten unwholesome actions, have commanded that it be entered, or have rejoiced at its being entered. Having been obscured by any obstacles from my previous actions, I shall be led into a realm of hell denizens, or shall be led to a place of birth as an animal, or shall be led to a land of the hungry spirits, or shall be born in a remote irreligious land, or shall be born a barbarian, or shall be born among long-living celestial beings, or shall become incomplete in sensory organs, or shall come to hold wrong views, or I shall become displeased with the presence of a Fully Awakened Being. But now, before the Fully Awakened Beings, the Endowed Transcendent Destroyers who became primordially aware, who became visionary, who became witnesses, who became valid, who see by their knowledge, I acknowledge and lay bare whatever such obstacles from my previous actions I have, all of them, without concealing any, without keeping anything secret, and hereafter I pledge to refrain from such actions.


All Fully Awakened Transcendent Destroyers, please heed me. In this birth and throughout births that have endlessly begun in cyclic existence, in other births while turning in cyclic existence, whatever source of virtue there is in my giving even a morsel of food to just one being who is born as an animal, and whatever source of virtue there is in any maintaining discipline, and whatever source of virtue there is in my acting to spiritually ripen sentient beings, and whatever source of virtue there is in activating my mind towards supreme full awakening, and whatever source of virtue there is in unsurpassable pristine awareness, having collected them, brought them together and bound them all fast through dedicating them completely to the unsurpassable, to that of which there is no higher, to that which is even higher than the high, to the supreme surmounting even the supreme, I fully dedicate for the peerless awakening of absolute perfection. Just as the Fully Awakened Transcendent Destroyers of the past have dedicated, and just as the Fully Awakened Transcendent Destroyers who are yet to come will dedicate, and just as the Fully Awakened Transcendent Destroyers living now are dedicating, in the same way do I make this dedication.


All wrongs individually I confess; in all merit I rejoice. All Fully Awakened Beings, I beseech and request you: may I and other realise the ultimate and supreme primordial awareness that is unsurpassable.


Whoever are the supreme men, the Conquerors living now,

those of the past and likewise those who are yet to come,

praising their excellences, all like a limitless ocean,

I join my palms in prayer, going close to them for refuge.


This completes The Exalted "Three Heaps", a sutra of the Great Vehicle.
