    1. Above an expanse of ocean is a stretch of clear sunny sky. A moon disc rises from the ocean into the sky. Inside the moon disc is the white Tibetan seed syllable「」''mo,'' emitting great white light.
    2. The seed syllable inside the moon disc revolves and transforms into Amoghapasa. Her white body has three faces and four arms; each face has three eyes. The first right hand holds prayer beads and the second right hand holds a holy water vase. The first left hand holds a lotus flower, while the second left hand holds a lasso.
    3. From the brow point of Amoghapasa, a beam of white light shines onto one's brow point. From the throat of Amoghapasa, a beam of red light shines onto one's throat. From the heart of Amoghapasa, a beam of blue light shines onto one's heart. The three lights of white, red, and blue merge completely into one's body and mind.

End of Practice: May all endeavors be auspicious.
Note: Visualization of Amoghapasa entering and unifying with a practitioner: Visualize Amoghapasa transforming into a light point, entering inside the practitioner via the crown, and sitting on the lotus platform of the heart. Then continue to visualize the body of Amoghapasa enlarging gradually until finally becoming the same size as the practitioner (both are tightly integrated, the practitioner is the Amoghapasa and vice versa without any difference.)

An empowerment must be received from Living Buddha Lian-sheng or an authorized True Buddha School master before one engages in this particular sadhana.
