    • page 12—This was requested together with the support of offerings by Yudrön, a princess of Derge. The supreme all-seeing tulku Rinpoche, Mangala (Dilgo Khyentse), also said it would be a good idea to write this, and so, I, Jamyang Lodrö Gyatso or Pema Yeshe Dorje composed this there and then, dictating it to the supreme tulku Rinpoche who wrote it down. May it be a cause for the two acccumulations increasing, like great waves in the minds of self and others.
    • Page 19—in response to many enthusiastic requests from Choktrul Rinpoche Tashi Paljor, the dakini Tsering Chödrön, Parkö Chöpel and others, I, wrote this on the first day of the fourth month of the Wood Sheep year (1955), gradually dictating it to my own student Lodrö Chokden, who acted as the scribe.
