A place in Bhutan
That I have not set my foot on,
Even the size of a horse-hoe
Or sesame is not there!
Just by traveling there,
One would find the path to liberation.
My followers, who practice the dharma,
Flee to the southern gorges—
The hidden sacred land!
Find a retreat place,
At the southern gate,
Of the southern gorges.
If you did this what you accomplish
In seven years in Tibet,
You will accomplish it
In seven days in these sacred places of Bhutan.
At mountain gorges and snow crevices
In the border regions of southern Tibet,
And at the forested gorges,
So forth, in all types of gorges,
As they will be needed at a future time.
I, Padmasamabhava, blessed
And left them as it is.
Dharma Yogis could obtain accomplishment
In these places very quickly.
All country gods and local spirits
Will protect them from obstacle makers.
Even devils and non-Buddhist heretics
Will not occur!
It is the fatherland
Of all the dharma practitioners.
At the border between Mon and Tibet,
Are the four greater hidden lands.
Eight lesser hidden lands
And ten thousand sub-hidden lands,
I, Padmasambhava, concealed them
As they will be of use in future!
