True words of the Dharmapalas,
True words of the Wisdom Dakini Senghe Dongma, And all the innumerable Dakinis!

Dedication
as in main sadhana.

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:

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.

Simhamukha 01.jpg

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 SHUD- DHO ‘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 gather- ing 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.

Simhamukha0001.jpg

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 Bud- dhas 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:
 
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.
 

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.
