The Great Crystallization Upon Hearing in the Sublunar State

O Nobly Born (so and so by name), the time has come for thee to seek the Work in reality. Thy breathing has become manual. Thy guru has set thee face to face with the ray of creation. At this moment, know thou thyself, and abide in that state.

O Nobly Born, let not thy mind be distracted.

Even if I cannot realize it, yet will I know this Bardo, and, mastering the subtle body and the astral body, will appear in whatever shape will benefit endlessness.

Keeping thyself unseparated from this resolution, thou shouldst try to remember whatever devotional practices thou went accustomed to perform during thy lifetime.

Multitudes may be crystallized in that manner; but, though multitudes may be crystallized in that manner, the power of sleep is great, and a vast preponderance will doze and dream that they are awake. Let the crystallization upon hearing wake you. Be it through infinite cycles of rebirth, you will eventually remember to become aware of the sensation in your right hand, and you will awaken immortal.

Myriad may be crystallized in that manner; but, though myriad may be crystallized in that manner, the power of sleep is great, and a vast preponderance will doze and dream that they are awake. O Nobly Born, let not thy mind be distracted. Let the crystallization upon hearing wake you. Be it through infinite cycles of rebirth, you will eventually remember to become aware of the sensation in your left leg, and you will awaken immortal.

Hoards may be crystallized in that manner; but, though hoards may be crystallized in that manner, the power of sleep is great, and a vast preponderance will be lost to the moon. Let the crystallization upon hearing wake you. O Nobly Born, let not thy mind be distracted. Be it through infinite cycles of reincarnation, you will eventually remember at the threshhold of a door to become aware of your face, and being awakened, become immortal.

O Nobly Born, let not thy mind be distracted. Let the crystallization upon hearing wake you. Multitudes may be crystallized in that manner; but, though multitudes may be crystallized in that manner, the power of sleep is great, and a vast preponderance will doze and never develop a self. Be it through infinite cycles of reincarnation, you will eventually remember at the beginning of a meal to become aware of your left hand, and awaken.

Let the crystallization upon hearing wake you. Multitudes may be crystallized in that manner; but, O Nobly Born, let not thy mind be distracted, though multitudes may be crystallized in that manner, the power of sleep is great, and a vast preponderance will doze and drift downstream. Be it through infinite cycles of reincarnation, you will eventually remember at the end of a meal to become aware of your right hand, and awaken.

O Nobly Born, let the crystallization upon hearing be not distracted, let your mind wake you. Myriad may be crystallized in that manner, but the power of sleep is great. Be it through infinite cycles of reincarnation, you will eventually remember to wake, and your wakefulness will become permanent.

O Nobly Born, to remember to wake, read, write, and repeat.
