The Yoga of the Three Purifications
of Shri Chakrasamvara
Introduction
According to Lama Zopa Rinpoches instructons, it is best to
perform the Vajrasatva Meditaton at the beginning of this
practce. However, if one has tme constraints and one already
engages in a Vajrasatva practce on a daily basis in the contnu-
um of another Highest Yoga Tantra sadhana (whether Vajrasat-
tva or another deity), it is permissible to skip this secton and
instead, afer recitng the lines for taking refuge and generatng
bodhichita, to begin directly with the actual Yoga of the Three
Puricatons, beginning with the secton on the puricaton of
the mind.
Refuge and Bodhichitta
At all tmes I take refuge
In Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha;
In all of the three vehicles,
In the dakinis of secret mantra yoga,
In the heroes, heroines, and empowering goddesses,
In the great beings, the bodhisatvas,
And above all, at all tmes,
I take refuge in my spiritual master.
I myself will become Heruka
For the sake of all living beings,
And then I shall lead all them all
To Herukas supreme state. (3x)
4 Three Purifications
Vajrasattva Meditation
From a PAM on my crown comes a lotus. From AH comes a moon
seat, on top of which, from HUM, appears a ve-spoked white va-
jra marked at the center by HUM. Lights radiate from the HUM,
accomplish the two purposes, and then return. The vajra is com-
pletely transformed into white Vajrasatva, having one face and
two hands, holding vajra and bell. He sits in the cross-legged vajra
positon and embraces the consort, white Dorje Nyemma, who has
one face and two hands, holding curved knife and skullcup. Both
are draped in silks and various precious jeweled ornaments. Both
have an OM at the crown, an AH at the throat, and a HUM at the
heart. From the HUM at the heart, light radiates and invites wis-
dom beings similar to themselves.
J AH HUM BAM HO
They become non-dual.
Again lights radiate from the HUM at the heart and invite the em-
powering deites.
All Tathagatas, I request you to bestow the actual empowerment
upon them.
Following this request, the empowering deites hold alof vases
lled with the nectar of exalted wisdom.
OM SARVA TATHAGATA ABHISHEKATA SAMAYA SHRI YE HUM
Thus, empowerment is conferred. The bodies are lled with the
nectar of exalted wisdom. The excess water on the crown is com-
pletely transformed into Akshobya, who adorns the top of the head.
Around the HUM on the moon at Vajrasatvas heart appears the
100-syllable mantra, circling around the rim.
Three Purifications 5
Bhagavan Vajrasatva, please cleanse all negatvites and obscura-
tons of myself and all sentent beings and purify all degenerated
and broken commitments.
Having been entreated in this way, light radiates from the mantra
garland and HUM at Vajrasatvas heart. The negatvites and ob-
scuratons of all sentent beings are puried, and pleasing oerings
are made to all buddhas and their children. All their good qualites
of body, speech, and mind return with the light rays, and dissolve
into the HUM and mantra garland. Thereby, a stream of white nec-
tar descends from the place of union of the father and mother.
Entering through my Brahma aperture, it lls my whole body with
the nectar of exalted wisdom. By this cleansing, all my negatvites
and obscuratons of the three doors are puried.

BHAGAVAN / VAJ RA HERUKA MAME MUNCHA / HERUKA

Through ignorance and delusion, I have broken and degenerated
my commitments. Guru Protector, give refuge! Chief holder of the
vajra, embodiment of great compassion, I take refuge in the fore-
most of beings.
Vajrasatva replies: Child of the lineage, all of your negatvites,
obscuratons, and broken commitments have been puried.
Then Vajrasatva dissolves into me. My three doors become insep-
arable from the body, speech, and mind of Vajrasatva.
Meditate strongly here on the unicaton of your own mind and
the mind of Vajrasatva
6 Three Purifications
The Yoga of the Three Purifications
The Yoga of the Three Puricatons to purify the three doors is
as follows:
Purification of the mind
The HE of SHRI HERUKA stands for the mind, the source of
everything, [and] for the selessness of phenomena, found by ex-
amining the empty nature of the causal mind.
RU stands for the selessness of persons, which is free of the
web of a fabricated self [that causes us to] conceptually apprehend
a self of persons.
KA stands for the object, suchness, and the subjectve mind,
abiding neither unharmoniously nor separately.
SHRI stands for non-dual exalted wisdom, totally inseparable
from emptness, its object: This is the meaning of EVAM.
Thinking in this way, purify the mind.
Purification of the body
Within this sphere of emptness, I arise instantly as dark blue Heru-
ka, with one face and two arms, holding vajra and bell. I stand
with my right leg outstretched and embrace my wisdom consort,
red Vajravarahi, who has one face and two arms and is holding a
curved knife and skullcup.
SHRI HERUKO HAM (3x)
Saying this three tmes with the blissful thought of benetng
all living beings, holding the divine pride of the physical appear-
ance, purify the body.

SHA SHA SA HA KSHA HUM HUM PHAT (3x)
The mantra garland, together with rays of light, circles counter-
clockwise three tmes at my navel. The abiding assembly of deites
of the three wheels radiate out from my right nostril into the ten
directons, dispelling all interferences, and then return through my
lef nostril, dissolving into the mantra garland at the navel.
Imagining this, purify the speech.

Praises and Requests
Glorious Heruka, your body with disciplined atachment,
Blazes throughout the three realms,
With the light of thousands of blue light rays and 100,000 suns,
May the many passionate beings on your bodily parts
All simultaneously dance.
The goddesses are valid.
The commitments are valid.
The teachings expressed by that are also supremely valid.
Due to these truths, may they become causes for us to receive the
protecton of the goddesses.

Dedication and Verses of Auspiciousness
May I myself become Heruka
For the sake of all living beings,
And lead every one of them
To Herukas supreme state.
If I do not obtain this supreme state in this life,
May I, at the tme of death, be received
By the Lord, the Consort, and their entourage,
With clouds of oerings, the sound of pleasant music,
And many wondrous signs.
Then at the end of the clear light of death,
May I be led to the pure land of Kechara,
The realm of the knowledge-holders who have accomplished the
supreme method,
And there may I swifly complete this profound path.
May intensive dedicaton to the teachings and practce
of Chakrasamvara increase,
And may this passage for those who want liberaton,
Crossed by tens of millions of powerful yogis,
Never decline, but last for a very long tme.
May the heroes and yoginis, together with their entourages,
Who abide in the twenty-four supreme places of this world,
And who possess the power to accomplish this method
without obstructon,
Always and unceasingly assist us.
