Sadhana of the Blue Lion-headed Dakini

A Sakya Golden Dharma

Refuge and Bodhichitta

I go for refuge until I am enlightened
To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Supreme Assembly.
By this practice of giving and other perfections,
May I become a buddha in order to benefit all sentient beings. (3x)

Invocation

Instantly I arise as the dakini Simhamukha. At my heart, on a lotus and sun-mandala is a dark-blue HUM. From it rays of light shine forth invoking the Guru and the dakini Simhamukha who is summoned by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

OM VAJRA SAMADZAH

Offerings

Make offerings with:

OM VAJRA ARGHAM AH HUM
OM VAJRA 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 NEVIDIYE AH HUM
OM VAJRA SHABDA AH HUM

Seven Limb Prayer

With my body, speech and mind, humbly I prostrate,
And make offerings both set out and imagined.
I declare my wrong deeds from all time,
And rejoice in the virtues of all.
Please stay until samsara ceases,
And turn the wheel of Dharma for us.
I dedicate all virtues to great enlightenment.

Four Immeasurables

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

Self-Generation

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHAH SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO ‘HAM

Everything becomes void.

From the state of emptiness appears a syllable PAM which becomes a lotus, and a syllable RAM which becomes a sun, on top of which appears a HUM. From the HUM rays of light shine forth establishing the vajra-ground. Around it is a vajra-fence, and above it a vajra-tent, all surrounded by the blazing fire of wisdom. In the center of the vajra-tent is the syllable EH which transforms into a dark-blue dharmakara (chö chung).

In the center of the dharmakara is a lotus and a sun mandala. On top of the corpses of the Maras stands my mind in the form of a dark-blue HUM from which light rays emanate destroying all demons and gathering all the powers and accomplishments of the dakas and dakinis to be absorbed into the HUM. Due to that I myself arise out of the HUM as the wisdom dakini Simhamukha.

My body is dark-blue in color with one face, two arms and three red rounded eyes. My mouth shows the bared fangs with the tongue curled upwards, looking extremely ferocious. In my right hand I am holding a vajra-handled curved knife (drigug) up in the air; in my left hand, at the heart level, I am holding a skullcup filled with blood. On my left shoulder leans a khatvanga with three points at its top. My hair, mustache and brows are yellow-red, streaming upwards. A crown of five skulls adorns my head; a necklace made of fifty freshly cut human heads, still dripping with blood, hangs around my neck. Wearing tiger-skin skirt I am ornated with the five bone ornaments.

I am in dancing posture with the left leg extended and the right one tucked in, surrounded by the blazing flames of the wisdom fire.

At my forehead is white OM, at my throat red AH, at my heart dark-blue HUM from which light rays spread forth summoning from Khechara, the place of heavenly enjoyment, the wisdom-being surrounded by all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

OM VAJRA SAMADZAH
DZA HUM BAM HOH

I become one with the wisdom beings. Then again from the HUM at the center of my heart, light rays shine forth summoning the five Buddha families and their retinue.

OM VAJRA SAMADZAH

Offerings

Make offerings to the five Buddha families with:

OM PANJA KULA SAPARIVARA ARGHAM, PADAM, PUSHPE, DHUPE, ALOKE, GHANDE, NAIVIDIYA, SHABDA PRATICCHA SVAHA

Empowerment

Then, the initiation is requested from them saying:

Please bestow the empowerment on me.

Then the tathagathas say:

OM VAJRI BHAVA ABHISHEKATA SAMAYA HUM

My whole body is filled with initiation water from the vase and is purified of all its defilements. The water overflowing the crown of my head is the totality of becoming, out of which appears a blue five-pointed vajra to adorn the head.

Mantra Recitation

In the center of my heart, residing on a sun-mandala, stands a dark-blue HUM, surrounded by the mantra syllables arranged counter-clockwise. The flames coming from the mantra garland incinerate all maras.

Thinking that recite the mantra:

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

Recite as much as you can.

Requesting Prayer & Dissolution

Dakini Simhamukha
Please bestow
The common and uncommon siddhis
Upon me and all sentient being.

This requested, the lotus seat and sun-mandala are absorbed into me in the form of light.

Dedication

By the virtue of this
May I and all sentient beings
Accomplish the state of the dakini.
Without leaving a single sentient being behind
May I be able to liberate them
To the state of the dakini.

Short Torma Offering

Make a torma in triangular shape (tetrahedron) and of red color. If you don’t have that you may substitute it with an offering of red cookies are red fruit.

Bless the inner offering with

OM VAJRA AMRITA KUNDALI HANA HANA HUM PHAT

Sprinkle the torma with it to dispel hindrances.

Then purify them into voidness:

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM

From the state of voidness, from AH comes a vast and expansive skullcup within which from the letters OM AH HUM arises the torma, a great ocean of nectar marked by the three letters OM AH HUM. Light radiates from the syllables and hooks the exalted wisdom nectars, which absorb into the three syllables. They melt into a great inexhaustible ocean of nectar.

OM AH HUM HA HO HRIH (3x)

Invoke the wisdom beings as above. Then offer the torma as follows:

To the principal dakini:

OM SINGHA MUKHA DAKINI IDAM BALIMTA KHA KHA KHAHI KHAHI SVAHA (3 - 7x)

To the retinue:

OM AH KARO MU KHAM SARVA DHARMA NAM ADYANUTPAN NA TVATA NAMA SARVA TATHAGATA AVALOKITE OM SAMBHARA SAMBHARA HUM( 3 - 7x)

Offerings

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