From Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

1.Getting Permission from the Goddess of the Earth

Double dorje.jpg

Visualize the Goddess of the Earth with a yellow body as suddenly appearing from the earth and accepting the blessing of the Master who is no different from the Yidam, Supreme Pleasure Vajra. After she offers her approbation, she disappears. The Master wields the Vajra toward the center of the borrowed place where the fire altar is situated to create there a Vajra-cross foundation. Repeat the incantation of Supreme Pleasure Vajra and the following half-stanza:

    Abiding in the limitless oneness of Dharmadhatu,
    The Mandala of Supreme Pleasure Vajra appears within.

2. Generating Bodhicitta

Stanza:

    May the ones I induce become free from sufferings and enjoy supreme pleasure.
    Once supreme pleasure attained all causes of all sorts of happiness will gather.
    The extraordinarily superior Four Blisses are perpetual and free from sorrows.
    The Wheel of Supreme Pleasure gathers and forms in universal renunciation.

3. Blessing

A.Blessing the Bell, Vajra and Drum

(a) Visualization for Blessing the Bell, Vajra and Drum:

Visualize that Father and Mother Steadfast Buddha become lights that go into the Vajra and Bell, respectively. Visualize the moon on the right palm and the sun on the left one. With the right hand holding the Vajra and the left one holding the Bell, recite: "Ma Ha, Ban Zha, Hong" and "Ban Zha, Ga Za, A." (All incantations written in Pin Yin in accordance with Guru Chen's pronunciation.) Use the Vajra to touch the heart chakra three times, simultaneously ring the Bell three times.

(b) Stanza:

    Bell is Vajra Yogini; Vajra is Supreme Pleasure Vajra.
    Melodious sounds express joy of Ewam to nurture beings.
    Drum is where the bliss of Sunyata of self and dharma arises.
    Instantaneously render all beings to become awakened!

(c) Incantation of Blessing the Bell and Vajra:
Weng, Sha Wa Da Ta Ga Da, Xi Di Ban Zha, San Ma Ya, Di Cha, Ei Qia Si Dang, Da La Ya Mi, Ban Zha Sa Duo, Hei Hei Hei Hei Hei, Hong Hong Hong Pei, Suo Ha.
(d) Incantation of Requesting the Blessing of All Buddhas:

Then, while reciting the incantation of Requesting the Blessing of All Buddhas, use the Vajra to touch the heart chakra to awake all the Buddhas that are in one's own Buddha-nature and with the opening of the Bell facing the top of the Master's head, turn the Bell around three times counter-clockwise, then three times clockwise, thus all Buddhas in the ten directions are requested to give blessing.

Weng, Ban Zha, Geng Zha La Li Da, Zhua La Li Da, Shuang Zhua La Li Da, Sha Wa Bu Da Ken Zha, Zhua Zha Li Lei, Zhua Zha Ba Li Mi, Geng Zha Da Na Ya, Shuang Ha Bi Da, Ban Zha Da Ma Xi Da Ya, Sha Wa Qia Li, Hong Hong Hong, Ho Ho Ho, A Kang Suo Ha.

B. Blessing the Surroundings

Stanza:

    Sunyata of the Yoga of Six Elements abides constantly in supreme bliss.
    Through Vajra Love White Bodhi and Red Bodhi all become fulfilled.
    The wisdom of supreme bliss is born of Vajra Samadhi that is leak-free.
    Desires in original purity pervade in ten directions and three periods.

C. Blessing the Triple Equality of Body, Wisdom and Karma

Faith Buddhism Vajra.png

Stanza:

    Tathagata, practitioner and fire altar are all in Dharmakaya,
    Thus in oneness to form the triple equality of body.
    Suchness of Tathagata, wisdom of practitioner, and fire in the altar,
    All are equal as aspects of wisdom.
    Power of Vows of Tathagata, Dharma activities of practitioner, and offerings made in the fire,
    All are equal as aspects of holy karma.
    These three kinds of subjects and objects are equally unified,
    Thus all Dharma activities exhibit superior merits.
    In this ritual there is inherently a special triple equality:
    Mother Buddha is the fire altar, Father Buddha the fire,
    The practitioner serves them as a child,
    These three are in oneness to form the triple equality of body.
    The heat of Father Buddha's Vajra, that of Mother Buddha's Lotus,
    Outwardly appears as the fire in the altar,
    These three are in oneness to form the triple equality of wisdom.
    The supreme pleasure of Father Buddha, the wisdom bliss of Mother Buddha,
    And the power of the practitioner's vows,
    These three are in oneness to form the triple equality of karma.
    Thus in supreme pleasure and bliss holy karmas are accomplished.
    Merits of attraction from inducing practices will become obvious.

4.Protection

Two pieces of food, prepared in advance, are offered. One is white in color for vegetarian Gods and the other is red for carnivorous Gods.

(a) The Incantation to offer food to the Protectors:
Weng A Hong, Ka Ka, Ka Xi, Ka Xi.
(b) Prayer Stanza to the Protectors:

    All the eight departments of protectors,
    And all the Yaksas and your family,
    Please take all this blessed and delicious food.
    Protect all the Yogis and their families.
    Let all of them be free and have long life!
    Gather all merits and sow all best seeds!
    And may you inspire all special enjoyments!
    Especially help this inducing fire sacrifice,
    And let me get all the accomplishments!
    Please remember all your excellent vows,
    Help me to gain all the attainments.
    Get rid of all bad conditions and death,
    Destroy all my obstacles and demons.
    Pacify all terrible dreams and bad omens.
    Protect us from all dangerous risks.
    Help to make peace and rich harvests for all,
    May plenty of all kinds of corn and Dharma,
    And all good pleasures be helped by you.
    Do help me to fulfill all my best wishes!
    Those who have been divined to darkness
    And cannot understand all the Tantras,
    Not able to hear and see this secrecy,
    Please leave here and go to the places where you belong.
    If you don't take my advice right now,
    I shall use the powerful and fiery Vajra
    To destroy your head into many pieces!

The Karma Vajra throws the two pieces of food in two different directions.

(c) Repeat the Four-Hong Incantation while throwing the mustard seeds:
Fire vajra.jpg

Repeat the Four-Hong Incantation to send the black deities away.

    Weng, Song Ba Li, Song Ba Li, Hong Hong Pei!
    Weng, Ge Li Ha Na, Ge Li Ha Na, Hong Hong Pei!
    Weng, Ge Li Ha Na Ba Ya, Ge Li Ha Na Ba Ya, Hong Hong Pei!
    Weng, A Na Ya Ho, Ba Ga Wen, Bi Ya Lan Zha, Hong Hong Pei!

Then the Master visualizes the Vajra Net that covers all ten directions and is formed with the Vajra Net Mudra. Thus from the beginning of the Homa performance until its end, the altar and the Master and his family and followers are protected.

5.Blessing the Offerings

The Master holds the Vajra dippers together, repeats the incantation given below and visualizes much nectar falling down from Father and Mother Yidam upon all the offerings. Thus all worldly offerings become Vajra Nectar of boundless supply.

Weng, Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha!

6.Arranging the Seat of the God of Fire and that of the Yidam

Place auspicious grasses around the fire altar. Then arrange seats for the God of Fire and the Yidam.

A.Praising and Welcoming the Red God of Fire

(a)Praise:

    Shine upon the dark becoming the bright.
    Joy and warmth of Tummo grow and glow!
    Secret Vajra Love induces Red Bodhi flow.
    Please sit on this seat of universal light!

(b)Visualize the Red God of Fire:

    "Lang" appears on the moon that is on a lotus.
    From this "Lang" arises the Red God of Fire!
    He has one face and two arms.
    The right hand holds the stove.
    The left hand holds a fairy bottle.
    His hair is very long; his belly big.
    He has a red Brahmin thread around his belly!

(c) Welcome the Fire God:
Lg.vajra det1.jpg

The Master raises a bunch of auspicious grass up to the sky to welcome the Wisdom God of Fire and repeats the following incantation:

Zha Ge Hong Zha
(d) Praise:

    You are the victorious Prince of Dharma.
    You have got the initiation of good Karma!
    Your wisdom fire can help induce harmony!
    I, now, beg you to help this Homa!

B.Arranging the Auspicious Seat for the Yidam

(a) Arrange the seat for the Supreme Pleasure Vajra with the following stanza:

    Originally pure and omnipresent Dharmakaya forms the seat outwardly.
    Pure and wondrous desires that bring universal pleasure form the seat inwardly.
    The Lotus of the pure and superior Mother Buddha is the seat secretly.
    Pure and holy karmas of supreme pleasure form the most secret seat.
    As you abide in the Twenty-four Mandalas at outer, inner and secret levels,
    Please abide constantly on this seat to grant pure and supreme pleasures!

(b) Praise the Supreme Pleasure Vajra with the following stanza:

Veneration in the presence of the Oneness of Guru and Supreme Pleasure Vajra!

    "He" signifies Non-born in realization of Sunyata that is beyond words.
    "Ru" signifies Non-death that is free from causal conditions and relations.
    "Ka" signifies Independence that is not abiding anywhere.
    Salute and praise the Yidam that appears from transformation of Adi Buddha!

    "Drinking" means enjoying the leak-free flower of supreme pleasure.
    "Blood" means crystallized essence of the wisdom life of all Buddhas.
    The holy one that unifies all merits of constancy, bliss, oneness and purity,
    Salute and praise in the presence of the Yidam, the Supreme Pleasure Vajra!

    Heavenly gown floating in the air, how lofty the majestic posture!
    Vajra-cross above signifies holy activities accomplished at will.
    The Bodhi crescent moon signifies incessant joy and bliss in Sunyata.
    Salute and praise the supreme upper adornments of the Yidam!

    Without entering a tiger's den how could one obtain the tiger's cubs?
    Using poison as antidote to poison, take the skin of the tiger tamed.
    Fearless emancipation attained through thrusting in and out the Lotus.
    Salute and praise the wondrous lower awe-inspiring bearing of the Yidam!

    All dharmas are originally pure, wondrous desires are pure beyond boundaries!
    Innate great wisdom reveals the Samadhi in joy, pleasures and bliss.
    Who could realize and taste the instant that transcends the Three Realms?
    Salute and praise the Vajra Yogini in the embrace of the Yidam!

Vajra fly.jpg

    Having received the heart essence of Dharma my four thoughts are as solid as Vajra.
    The four holy activities of pacification, enhancing, inducing and eradication are all accomplished at will.
    Four kayas, four wisdoms and four virtuous merits are all coordinated suitably.
    Salute and praise the Dakinis in the four directions of the Yidam!

    Playing with supernatural powers, attained liberation in pure innocence,
    Holding on to the sword of wisdom, guarding and sustaining Tantric practitioners,
    With black crow head free from pollution, transforming incessantly in myriads ways,
    Salute and praise the Protector that is a transformation of the Yidam!

    Caves in mountains are very remote from the world, who would visit a cemetery ground?
    Stepping down from lofty realm, the Yidam and retinue serve as mountain gods.
    Compassionate vows so broad and profound in their determination to serve Dharma without reservation,
    Salute and praise the Raksasa Refuges who are transformations of the Yidam!

    I was as a baby looking up to the cloudless blue sky of autumn,
    Prostrating at full-body length, pleading for the arrival of the day when my enlightenment wish will be satisfied,
    Suddenly they appeared in the original purity of my mind,
    Salute and praise the Twenty-four Mandalas of the Yidam!

    The grace of the gathering of the Yidam and retinue in the Three Mandalas and their outer protectors,
    Through repetition of only seven syllables karmic hindrances of myriads of kalpas will vanish.
    Sublimating mind and consciousness, gaining mastery over grounds and paths,
    Salute and praise the unsurpassable wondrous mantra of the Yidam!

    Sentient beings in Kali Age have lustful desires extremely flamboyant.
    Awe-fully profound and wondrous path is so dangerous and extremely difficult to traverse.
    Like a snake inside a bamboo, it will either rise upward or fall downward.
    Who will save them to liberation? Shedding compassionate tears I look up to the Mandala.

    Wondrous teachings of Tantra are peerless, and will not be taught often in this Bhadrakalpa (Good Kalpa).
    As if violating Silas but actually is observing them, the horse is held back at the cliff.
    Facing hindrances and difficulties of wind and channel one is like a blind man in the middle of the night.
    Who would render a helping hand? I cry and plead in the presence of Yidam and retinue.

    Observing Silas and having renounced the world for Dharma, thus one has entered deep in the beginning part.
    The wondrous Samadhi of Sunyata Brightness and growth in Bodhicitta,
    Such are the causal factors that will inspire the presence of Vajra Yogini
    To guide each and every Yogi on where they should apply efforts now or later.

    Grace of Guru is so profound that it completely comprehends the situations of the disciples.
    The consort of the Yidam loves me like a baby child.
    Protectors are so merciful that they praise our good deeds and have pity on our weakness.
    All virtuous ones cultivate opportune conditions to help our speedy attainments.

    Please, please! The forceful thrust of Vajra in movements inward and outward,
    Grant wondrous wisdoms to relieve all beings of the sorrowful burning heat in their minds!
    Please, please! The wondrous turning of Lotus in movements forward and backward,
    Grant supreme bliss to enable all beings to abide in tranquil and pleasant nests!

    The Twenty-four Mandalas are still present without being hidden.
    After all, for whom they stay around? I solemnly supplicate,
    May the non-death supreme pleasure wisdom body be granted
    So that even the very last being in Samsara will be saved to adorn the great compassion!

(c) The Seven-branch Praise:

    Salutation in the presence of applying pleasure to verify Sunyata!
    Manifest desires in their original purity as profound offerings.
    Complete with all Four Levels of Bliss in giving endorsement,
    Connection of A (Tummo) and Hang (Dripping of white Bodhi) forms the praising.
    Please turn the wheel of unchanging supreme pleasure, and
    Abide forever in the Pureland of Lotus Light!
    We dedicate merits toward all sentient beings' attainment of Supreme Pleasure Vajra!
