Even though he had gathered the two accumulations of merit and wisdom over three incalculable eons and had become omniscient and an unsurpassed teacher,
and although he had perfectly fulfilled renunciation and realization and had manifested as an enlightened being,
he mercifully perceived migrating beings and set the intention to be born as a son to King Mugyal Thökar in order to guide sentient beings.
I pay homage to the deed of accepting rebirth!”
— Excerpt from Praise of the Twelve Deeds of Buddha Tönpa Shenrap Miwoché
