Hevajra Refuge Prayer

Namo Guruve!

(The person who wishes to meditate, in a brief way, according to the actual procedure for the realization of Shri Hevajra as the principal Deity should first be seated upon a comfortable mat, and then he should dwell in the course of this meditation. The Hevajra Objects of Refuge should be imagined as if they were manifest.)


In the Most Holy Guru who is the quintessence of the qualities and deeds of the body, speech and mind of all the Tathagatas abiding in the ten directions and three times, the source of the eight-four thousand (84000) eight-four thousand articles of the Doctrine (eight-four thousand Dharmas, 84000 Dharmas, 84000 articles of the Doctrine and Master of the Noble Assemblies (Sangha) – I and all living beings, equal to the bounds of space, from this time forth until the essence of Enlightenment is attained steadfastly (Virya Paramita) take refuge in the Venerable Root Guru and in the Holy Masters of the lineage such as His Holiness Sakya Trizin and [His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Choden Rinpoche; take refuge in the Holy Teachings (Dharma); take refuge in the Noble Assemblies (Sangha).


(After reciting this Refuge Prayer as many times as possible, offer the following prayer with one's hands clasped together at the heart.)

In the Guru and the Three Precious Gems I bow down and take refuge; may you bless me in all my lifetimes.


(Envision that the Hevajra Objects of Refuge dissolve into light, and this is absorbed into oneself.)

Om Shunyata Vajra Svabhava Atmako Ham

Om Shunyata Vajra Svabhava Atmako Ham

By reciting this Emptiness Mantra, one's Five Aggregates become empty.

Out of the state of Emptiness arises a Lotus enclosing a Sun Disk. Upon this, the Four Maras are laid, one on top of the other. Surmounting them is a HUM, from which arises a skullcup with its three segment lines visible. On the forehead is a vishvavajra marked in the center with HUM. On its left, arising from an AM appears a curved knife, blue-black in color and marks on its hilt with an AM.

Arising from a complete transformation of this, I appear a Shri Hevajra, who body is blue-black in color with eight faces, sixteen hands, and four legs. The principal face is blue, the right white, the left red, the upper face smoke-colored, and the two remaining pairs of faces are black.

Each face has three eyes and and four bared fangs. My yellow hair twists upward, and top of my head is marked with a Vishvavajra.

My sixteen hands hold sixteen skullcups. The skullcup in the first right hand holds a white elephant, and the first left hand the yellow God of Earth. With these two hands I embrace the Mother. In the second right hand is a blue horse, in the third an ass with a white patch on its forehead, in the fourth a yellow bull, in the fifth an ash-colored camel, in the sixth a red man, in the seventh a blue sharabha, and in the eighth a cat with a white patch on its forehead.

In the second left hand is the white god of water, in the third the red god of fire, the in fourth the green god of air, in the fifth the white god of the moon, in the sixth the red god of sun, in the seventh the blue lord of death, and in the eighth the yellow holder of wealth.

Each head has a crown of five skulls. he possesses a necklace of fifty fresh heads and six ornaments of bone.

His two right legs are stretched downward, while on their thighs the toes of the two curved left are pressing in the half-lotus position, for he is in a dancing stance.

He is possessed of the nine emotions of dancing: grace, fearlessness, and ugliness; laughter, ferocity, and frightfulness; compassion, wrath (fury), and peacefulness.

In his lap is the Mother, Vajra Nairatmya, whose body is blue in color. She has one face, two hands, three eyes, and her yellow hair twists upward.

In here right hand she holds a curved knife, while with her left, which holds a skullcup, she embraces the Father. Her head is adorned with five human skulls. She has a necklace fifty skulls and five ornaments of bone. Her left leg is outstretched and with her curved right leg she embraces the Father. Both the Mother and Father are standing in the midst of the burning flames of transcendental wisdom.

For the eyes is Mohavajra, for the ears is Dveshavajra, or the nose is Matsaryavajra, for the mouth is Ragavajra, for the body Irshtavajra, for the mind Nairatmyayogini, for the top of the head Kayavajra, for the throat Vagvajra, for the heart Chittavajra.

Invoking the Wisdom Beings and Consecrating Deities of the Hevajra Mandala

From the letter HUM within my heart, blue light rays issue forth. All the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions and three times now converge in the form of Shri Hevajra and his Consort Nairatmya.

Om Vajra Samajah

Om Vajra Samajah

Jah Hum Bam Ho

Jah Hum Bam Ho

They are absorbed into me without any duality. Again, light rays spread forth from my heart and invoke the Five Buddhas of Consecration (Initiation or Transmission).

Om Vajra Samajah

Om Vajra Samajah

Om Abhishincha Tu Mam

Om Abhishincha Tu Mam

Om Vajraibhava Abhishincha Hum

Om Vajribhava Abhishincha Hum

As I speak, the Tathagatas give their consecration by pouring water from a vase over the top of my head. As the consorts sing vajra songs, the Bodhisattvas give auspicious blessings, the wrathful ones drive away karmic obstacles and interferers, and the goddesses make their offerings.

Recitation of the Hevajra Deity Mantra

Om Devapichu Vajra Hum Hum Hum Phat Svaha

Om Devapichu Vajra Hum Hum Hum Phat Svaha

Om Devapichu Vajra Hum Hum Hum Phat Svaha


Om Vajra Katari Hevajra Hum Hum Hum Phat Svaha

After reciting the above Hevajra Mantras for a while (ideally 21 times or 108 times), offer the following Prayer with hands clasped (Namaste Mudra):

May all living beings and I be blessed with the body-speech-mind, qualities, and deeds of all the Sugatas. May we be blessed to attain quickly Hevajra's stage, the quintessence of Mahamudra's Highest Perfection.
