In the cloudless night sky, the full moon, the “Lord of Stars”, is about to rise. The face of my compassionate Lord, Padmasambhava, draws on me, radiating its tender welcome. My delight in death is far, far greater than the delight of traders making vast fortunes at sea, or the lords of the gods who vaunt their victory in battle; or of those sages who have entered the rapture of perfect absorption. So just as a traveler who sets out on the road when the time has come to go, I will not remain in this world any longer, but will go to dwell in the stronghold of the great bliss of deathlessness.
