A Sadhana of Senghe Dongma the Lion-Face Dakini


Refuge and Bodhichitta


I go for refuge unti l I am enlightened

To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Supreme Assembly. By this practi ce of giving and other perfecti ons,

May I become a buddha in order to benefi t all senti ent beings. (3x)


Four Immeasurables


May all senti ent beings have happiness and its cause. May all senti ent beings be free of suff ering and its cause. May all senti ent beings be inseparable from sorrowless bliss. May all senti ent beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, both greed and hatred.


Continual Confession


I go for refuge to the Three Jewels. All negati viti es I confess. I rejoice in all the merits of migrators. I keep in mind enlightenment.


To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Supreme Assembly I go for refuge unti l I am enlightened. To realize my own and others’ benefi t I shall generate bodhichitt a. Having produced the thought of supreme bodhi, I shall look aft er all senti ent beings as guests, And practi ce the pleasing, supreme bodhi conduct. For senti ent beingssake, may I realize buddhahood.


Self-generation


From the state of emptiness, from EH [arises] a blue-black triangular reality source, extensive and deep, surrounded by a violent garland of flames. In the middle of the reality source from PAM [arises] a large lotus and from RAM, a sun upon which [appears], on the heart of a human corpse, a sky-blue HUM, the entity of one’s mind.

From that [[[HUM]]] light radiates, annihilating all enemies, hinderers, wrong teachers, and black magic curses, and burning up all evil tokens, omens, and harms.


The light again collects, absorbing into the HUM. From its complete transformation, [I arise] as Lion-face Wisdom Dakini, dark blue, [my] huge body pervading the three realms. [My] limbs and body parts are robust and strong, and [my] lion face [is] extremely wrathful with gaping mouth, curled up tongue, bared fangs, and poisonous breath billowing like fog. With three round red eyes and [my] red-yellow facial hair, eyebrows, and top mane blaze like fire, some hanging down.


[My] right hand brandishes a vajra curved knife in space while [my] left holds a skullcup of blood at the heart. In the crook of

[my] elbow is a khatvanga, from which hangs a damaru and a three-pointed banner. [I stand in] the half vajra dancing posture with left leg extended and wear a ti ger-skinned lower garment, and an upper garment of joined human and elephant skins. [My] head is adorned by dry skulls. [I wear] snake and bone ornaments and a necklace of human heads, and [am] adorned by drops of human blood, lines of grease, and lumps of ashes.

[I am standing] in the midst of blazing lights of transcendental wisdom fi re. Surrounding [me] are an assem bly of trillions of dakinis, all of whom hold various weapons in their right hands and like the princi pal [hold skullcups] in the left . From the lion mouth resounds the roar of the wrathful mantra. At [my] forehead is OM, at [my] throat, AH, at [my] heart, HUM. The HUM radiates light invoking Lion-face Dakini together with her reti nue from the dakini palace of Uddiyana, saying PHEM PHEM and radiati ng the blazing mudra.


JAH HUM BAM HO


Offerings


Cleanse the offerings with:


OM VAJRA AMRITA KUNDALI HANA HANA HUM PHAT


Purify them into voidness with:


OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM


All becomes voidness. Out of the void [appears] KAM, whence skullcups. In them, from HUM, [appear] offering substances, whose nature is voidness, whose aspect is as the distinct offering



substances, and whose function is to give special uncontaminated bliss as objects of the six senses.

Visualize OM AH HUM sinking into each skullcup (kapala).


OM ARGHAM AH HUM OM PADYAM AH HUM OM VAJRA PUSHPE AH HUM OM VAJRA DHUPE AH HUM OM VAJRA ALOKE AH HUM OM VAJRA GANDHE AH HUM OM VAJRA NAIVEDYA AH HUM OM VAJRA SHABDA AH HUM


Then offer:


OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI SAPARIVARA BHYA ARGHAM PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA


Then:


PADYAM to SHABDA


Inner offering


OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI SAPARIVARA BHYA OM AH HUM


Praise


Glorious vajra dakini,

Ruler of the dakinis, Who found fi e wisdoms and three kayas:

Homage to the refuge of migrators!

Empowerment


Again light radiates invoking the empowering deities.


VAJRA SAMAJAH


They empower saying:

OM VAJRI BHAVA ABHIKHINJA HUM The holy body is filled and stains purified. From the excess nectar the crown is adorned by Vairochana.


Mantra Recitation


AH KA SA MA RA / TSA SHA DA RA / SA MA RA YA PHAT


Recite [the mantra] wrathfully together with visualization. Then [recite] the 100-syllable mantra. At the end visualize your right thumb as a golden ax and your left thumb as a silver choppingblock.


As you clap at the end of each line, all hinderers and so on are cut to pieces.


O you assembly of blazing wrathful ladies (1x)


Pulverize into dust the bodies and speech (1x)


Of all enemies and hinderers (1x)


And release their consciousness into the sphere of Dharma. (3x)


Offering the torma


(Last session only.)


Arrange a torma ornamented with meat and blood. Aft er blessing the inner off ering [as before] (OM VAJRA AMRITA...), sprinkle the torma with it to dispel hindrances. Then purify them into


voidness (OM SVABHAVA...).


From the state of voidness, from AH comes a vast and expansive skullcup within which from the lett ers OM AH HUM arises the torma,

a great ocean of nectar marked by the three lett ers OM AH

HUM. Light [radiates] from [the syllables and] hooks the exalted wisdom nectars, which absorb into the three sylla bles. They melt into a great inexhausti ble ocean of nectar.


OM AH HUM HA HO HRIH (3x)


Invoke the exalted wisdom beings as above. Then off er the torma as follows:


To the principal dakini:


OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI IDAM BALIMTA KHA KHA KHAHI KHAHI SVAHA (7x)


To the retinue:


OM AH KARO MU KHAM SARVA DHARMA NAM ADYANUTPAN NA TVATA NAMA SARVA TATHAGATA AVALOKITE OM SAMBHARA SAMBHARA HUM (7x)


Offerings


OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI SAPARIVARA BHYA ARGHAM … to … SHABDA PRATICCHA HUM SVAHA OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI SAPARIVARA BHYA OM AH HUM


Praise


O bhagavati wisdom dakini, Great heroine with a frightful body,

Your lion body subdues the vicious:


Homage and praise before your furious face. Holding a drigu [in] your right hand, Please severe the life nerve of enemies and hinderers without exception.


Female dispeller of disharmonious interruptions, Homage and praise to the powerful wrathful one. Holding a skullcup of blood [in] your left hand, Enjoy the heart blood of the four maras of the ten evil spheres. Eliminate completely the continuity of samsara’s blood. Homage and praise to the liberator from curses. You liberate from the three poisons holding a khatvanga; Your frightful body has a skull garland. Two legs centered upon lotus, moon, and sun. Homage and praise to you amidst a blaze of fire. The reality source purified of poisonsDark blue, triangular, blazing fires – Is the fully complete three doors of liberation. Homage and praise to the wrathful activator arisen from EH. By accomplishing the approximation, doing offerings and praise, May interruptions of the stages and paths be pacified, May life and wealth increase, and

May I quickly att ain the knower of aspects, buddhahood.


Conclusion


Saying:

VAJRA MU

the deities depart.


At the end dedicate the merit within the state of non-referential awareness of the body of the deity (e.g., aft er absorbing into the heart HUM and then into voidness).


Dedication


Then make dedication prayers and auspicious verses as much as possible.


During the session break keep yourself inseparable from the divine pride of the deity.
