Marking request for admission

The disciples make a request to the Vajra master to admit them to the city of liberation in order to liberate all sentient beings from the ocean of fear and suffering of birth, aging sickness and death. The master recites a verse, ‘The torrent of birth, aging, sickness and death….’ Whose lines the disciples must repeat thrice while reflecting on their meaning in accordance with the master’s explanation. Then the master utters a verse, ‘O child come here……’ in which he says he will reveal the meaning of the secret mantra and that the disciples should pay attention. This is to stabilize the disciple’s faith in the doctrine of secret mantra.
