The authenticity of the collection of essential reasonings is explained so as to disprove and eliminate erroneous views of unrealized beings and those with erroneous conceptions, as well as those attracted by limited perspectives accessing merely the words and not the meaning and also for those who lack profound and correct experience. Through blessings of the Victor Samantabhadra bon-dimension (bon sku, dharmakāya), reflexive open awareness (rang rig pa, svasavedana), a wholeness that is the heart essence of our ancestor is understood by the White Shen Deity, protector of beings. That itself, the very essence of mindheart understanding, dawns as open awareness in the mindheart of {49.1} Shenrab, the emanation dimension. Lyrical speech, the musical expression of this [open awareness], is addressed to fortunate ones, the heroically minded Yung Drung Shen-practitioners [Bodhisattvas].

Keywords:   Authenticity, Samantabhadra, essential reasonings, open awareness, wholeness
