Catrapa was a beggar in Sandhonagara who carried a small dictionary.

One day he met a yogin and a conversation developed and ended in the beggar receiving the initiation into Hevajra and detailed instructions with commentary from his guru because he expressed his lack of understanding.

After receiving the instructions, he meditated accordingly.

In 6 years, he attained the siddhi of Mahamudra and became to be known as the guru Catrapa, together with 500 followers, he went to the realm of the Dakas.
