OM BANZA-SATTVA, SAMAYA MANU-PULAYA
Oh Vajrasattva, keep your pledge,
BANZA-SATTVA TVENO PATISHTA
Vajrasattva reside in me,
DIRDHO ME BHAVA, SUTOKYO ME BHAVA
Make me firm, make me satisfied,

Great Pledge Being.
AH HUM PHAT
(recite 21 or 108 times. It is helpful to have a mala to help you focus on how many times you have recited this prayer. Recite at least 21 times. If you have time alloted for 108, that is great!)
DAK NI MI SHAY MONG PA YI.
Out of ignorance and delusion I have transgressed
DAM TSIK LAY NI KAL SHING NYAM.
my words of honour and let them degenerate.

O Lama, lord master,
TSO WO DOR JE DZIN PA TE.
lord of beings
THUG DE CHEN PO'I DAK NYID CHEN.
with a nature of great compassion,
DRO WAY TSO LA DAK KYAB CHI.
to you I turn for refuge.
DOR JE SEM PAY SHAL NAY RIK KYI BU.
Vajrasattva replies, O son of the family, you are cleansed
KYOD KYI DIK DRIB DANG
and purified of all your downfalls and obstacles,
DAN TSIK NYAM CHAK THAM CHAY CHANG SHING DAK GO.
as well as your degenerated and broken words of honour.
SHAY SUNG NAY RANG LA THIN PAY RANG KI GO SUM DANG
Then he dissolves into me and my body, speech and mind become
DOR JE SEM PAY KU SUNG THUK YER MI CHAY PAR GYUR.
inseparable from the body, speech and mind of Vajrasattva.
GE-WA DI-YI NYUR-DU DAG
By the accumulation of this merit
DOR-JE SEM-PA DRUB-GYUR-NE
may I quickly accomplish in reality Vajrasattva.
DRO-WA CHIG-KYANG MA-LU-PA
And all sentient beings without exception
KYE-KYI SA-LA GO-PAR-SHOG
may I lead to that stage.
JANG-CHUB SEM-CHOG RINPOCHE
May the supreme Bodhi-mind
MA-KYE PAY-NAM KE-GYUR-CHIG
grow where it has not grown.
KYE-PA NYAM-PA ME-PA-YANG
Where it has grown undefiled,
GONG-NE GONG-DU PHEL-WAR-SHOG
may it unceasingly increase.
