With Upholding Precepts Following Teachings And Offering Buddhas
For example, like [the] Uḍumbara flower, likewise like [a] wish-according wonderful treasure gem, if believing [in and] revering all Buddhas, then upholding [the] pure precepts [and] following [the] right teachings.
If upholding [the] pure precepts [and] following [the] right teachings, [by] all Buddhas [and] noble [ones] those highly praised, [as] precepts are unsurpassable Bodhi’s roots, [all] should completely uphold [the] pure precepts.
If able [to] completely uphold [the] pure precepts, all [are by the] Thus Come [Ones] those highly praised, if believing [in and] revering all Buddhas, then able [to make the] outstanding offering most superb.

[Note: The Uḍumbara flower represents rarity and thus preciousness.]
