"The Rosary of Jewels: Oral Instructions to the Prince, Lord, Subjects, and Friend; the Catalogue and Framework of Practice (Texts)"
by Padmasambhava.

This text belongs to the class of oral instuctions (zhaldam) that Padmasambhava bestowed on Yeshe Tsogyal as well as his close disciples. It was revealed by Terchen Tsasum Lingpa in 1718 from the hermitage of Samye Chimpu in Central Tibet, as part of the terma cycle "Union of All Sugatas, the Heart Practice of the Guru".

"Generation Stage is appearance-emptiness, free from ego-clinging.
Completion Stage is free from meeting, following or fabricating the thought.
The mantra of sound-emptiness is free from speculating on good or bad,
Generation Stage leads to the supreme and ordinary accomplishments.
Attaining confidence in the supreme (siddhi) is the degree of progress.
Accomplishment of compassion is devotion to the Guru.
Realization is perceiving all (Guru's) actions as positive.
Single word, accomplishing all goals, is the Secret Mantra.
Single taste, unifying all essences, is the sustenance of samadhi.
Single radiance, luminous in all directions, is the great wisdom.
Single ornament, beautiful to all, is the wish-fulfilling gem.
Single seat, attained by all, is Dharmakaya.
Single friend, in harmony with all, is the innate nature.
Single child, loving to all, is the pure essence of the sense-organs.
Single wealth, enriching all, is the treasure of mind-essence.
Single castle, resisting all, is the Vajra Dome.
Single expanse, withstanding all, is the vajra treasure.
The only weapon, (that is) ever sharp, is the sword of wisdom.
The only army, overcoming all, is the host of the five poisons.
The only way to reverse it is the Great Perfection."

Padmasambhava
