Precious human life is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of eight freedoms and ten endowments!
Put on the saddle of the ethics of ten virtues!
Ride quickly from the sphere of karma and result!
Start by galloping away from the sphere of bad migrations!
And make a higher rebirth the finish of the race!

Renunciation of cyclic existence is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of training in ethical conduct!
Put on the saddle of the sacred dharma that tames!
Ride quickly from the swamp of cyclic existence!
Start by galloping away from the sphere of five migrations!
And make the island of liberation the finish of the race!

Mind of enlightenment benefitting others is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of the four immeasurables!
Put on the saddle of the conduct of the six paramitas!
Ride quickly from the sphere of eight worldly dharmas!
Start by galloping away from objects of personal attachment!
And make the island of benefit for all the finish of the race!

Emptiness is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of the five reasonings!
Put on the bridle of threefold complete liberation!
Ride quickly from the cage of conceptions!
Start by galloping away from the plain of clinging to truth!
And place in the nature free from fabrication at the finish of the race!

The common vehicle is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of the path of two accumulations!
Put on the saddle of the three innumerable ones!
Ride quickly from the extremes of existence and peace!
Start by galloping away from the sphere of illusions!
And make the island of omniscience the finish of the race!

The uncommon vehicle is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of pure environment and beings!
Put on the saddle of the ocean of maturation and liberation!
Ride quickly on the plain of sacred vows!
Start the race at final knowledge and appearance!
And make great bliss wisdom the finish of the race!
Mind's awareness is like a thoroughbred horse.

Put on the bridle of all profound instructions!
Put on the saddle of the origin of the three migrations!
Ride quickly from the objects of the six accumulations!
Start from the great pure wisdom!
And make the palace of the dharmakaya the finish of the race!

Self-arising awareness is like a thoroughbred horse.
Put on the bridle of the natural three kayas!
Put on the saddle of the perfect five wisdoms!
Ride quickly from all existence and liberation!
Start from supreme abandonment and realisation!
And make manifold activity the finish of the race!
