Requests To The Yamantaka Lineage Gurus
To the all pervading Manjushri-vajra lord Yamantaka;
To the fatherly most venerable Jetsun Tsongkhapa,
Together with the lineage of your spiritual disciples,
You are in actuality all the Buddhas;
To all of you I make requests:
Bestow on me please the two powerful attainments

.
Taking Refuge And Generating Bodhicitta
I take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha
I shall liberate all living beings and lead them to their own Enlightenment.
I shall develop purely a bodhicitta enlightened motive. (3X)
Instant Self-Generation As Yamantaka
Instantaneously I arise in the bodily form of glorious Yamantaka

Generating Oneself As Yamantaka
OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHAH SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM
Everything dissolves into emptiness.
From within this state of emptiness, there arises a vajra-surface, vajra fence, vajra tent and vajra
ceiling, surrounded by a mountain of wisdom flames. In the centre of these arises a celestial mansion,
which is square, with four entrance-ways. In the centre of the celestial mansion upon a multi-coloured
lotus and sun disc, I arise in the Enlightened bodily form of a causal vajra-holder, Manjushri.
From my heart chakra as a clearly appearing hero Manjushri, light-rays emanate, bringing forth all the
blissful Sugata Buddhas in the aspect of glorious Yamantakas. They dissolve into me. I completely
transform into a resultant vajra-holder, the great and glorious Yamantaka. I have a body dark blue-
black in colour, nine faces, thirty-four arms and sixteen legs, standing in the pose of the right ones bent
and left outstretched.
In my heart chakra is the wisdom-being youthful Manjushri. In his heart chakra is the concentration
being, a blue syllable HUM
¸z[
.
At my crown chakra is a white OM
¸f
, at my throat chakra is a red AH
¸r
and at my heart chakra is a
blue HUM
¸z[
.
Absorbing the Wisdom Beings and Receiving the Empowerment
From the blue HUM
¸z[
at my heart chakra, light-rays emanate bringing forth from their natural abodes
the Yamantaka wisdom-beings and the empowering deities.
The wisdom-beings dissolve into me. We become non-dual.
The empowering deities confer the empowerment on me and then dissolve into me.
I acquire an Akshobhya Buddha on the crown of my head.
[Meditate on the clear appearance of oneself as the
Fully Enlightened Nirmanakaya Solitary Hero, Glorious Yamantaka and develop vajra pride.]

Dedication
By the virtue arising from my effort in this method and by my pure selfless wish,
May all limitless living beings never be parted, but always be cared for, in birth after birth by
the peaceful and wrathful Manjushris.
After having manifested the Enlightened state, with the seven kisses of perfection and
the nature of the five Buddhakayas, which lasts as long as space endures,
May I instantaneously lead all endless beings quickly and easily to this very same state.
May there be the auspiciousness of the root and lineage Gurus.
May there be the auspiciousness of the yidams and hosts of deities.
May there be the auspiciousness of the dakas and dakinis.
May there be the auspiciousness of the Dharma-protectors and guardians of the teachings.
