(1) Above an expanse of ocean is a stretch of clear sunny sky. A moon disc rises from the ocean into the sky. Inside the moon disc is the yellow “Sanskrit seed syllable “heh”, emitting great pink light.
(2) The seed syllable inside the moon disc revolves and transforms into Padmasambhava. Padmasambhava’s body is a pink and he wears a jewel crown. Sitting on a lotus moon disc, he holds a vajra scepter in his right hand, a trident vajra (three pronged staff) in the curve of his left elbow, and a nectar-and-jewels filled skull cup in his left hand. (3).Visualize the nectar transform into a brilliant white light that travels in an arc to enter and empower one. This nectar eradicates all transgressions, sicknesses, and demonic interferences, resulting in a state of great self-mastery.

11. Recite the Padmasambhava Heart mantra

Hold mala beads in front of the chest and move each bead with the thumb during chanting. Visualize the left hand transform into a vajra bell and the right hand into a vajra scepter. The mother bead or emblem transforms into the Many Jewels-Buddha’s Stupa and the four “ divider deads” transform into the Four Deva Kings. The tassel transforms into a “lotus hand” while the string threading through the breads transforms into a circle of inherent white light of Vajrasattva. During mantra chanting, when a bead is moved, visualize Padmasambhava appear inside the bead and become to the forefront.
