To the great, unmatched lama possessing characteristics,
I present unequaled external, internal, and secret offerings.
Externally, I offer the environment and the beings within it.
Furthermore, I offer my own body and its vitality as an ornament.
I present these offerings with non-attachment.
Internally, I offer the arising of my mental and physical aggregates.
I offer my accumulated realization that whatever arises as subject and object is illusory.
Furthermore, I present these offerings within the vast space of self-liberation.
Secretly, I offer the natural radiance of my unborn mind, which is
unceasing and understands whatever arises as enlightened manifestation and wisdom.
Furthermore, I present these offerings within a completely vast and all-pervasive space.”
