In the English Language: The Far-Reaching Perfection of Sublime Knowing in a Single Letter, The Mother of All Those Gone to Thusness
 
 
HOMAGE TO THE SUPREME MOTHER, THE FAR-REACHING PERFECTION OF SUBLIME KNOWING!
 
Thus have I heard: at one time, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, the Blessed One, was at Vulture’s Peak in Rajagriha, together with 83 fully-ordained monks, and many tens of billions of bodhisattvas, who were all abiding together as one skillful expedient device.
 
Furthermore, at that time, at that moment, the Blessed One spoke thus to the Venerable Ananda:
 
“Ananda! This is the Far-Reaching Perfection of Sublime Knowing in a Single Letter. For the benefit and happiness of all sentient beings, you should hold this!
It goes thus:
AH
The Transcendent Conqueror spoke these words, and the monks, bodhisattvas, and all the assemblies of gods, humans, demi-gods, and gandharvas, together with the whole world, rejoiced: they thoroughly praised the noble speech of the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror.
 
THE FAR-REACHING PERFECTION OF SUBLIME KNOWING IN A SINGLE LETTER, THE MOTHER OF ALL THOSE GONE TO THUSNESS, IS COMPLETE.
Translated by Erick Sherab Zangpo.
 
*note: AH is one letter in Sanskrit and Tibetan
