Saṃvarodaya Tantra (Wyl. sdom 'byung gi rgyud) or Tantra of the Emergence of Chakrasamvara was requested and compiled by Vajrapani. Dudjom Rinpoche notes that it is a source of teachings on the crafts of constructing representations of enlightened body, speech and mind.[1] It is also apparently the source of the famous quotation:

The guru is the Buddha,
The guru is the Dharma,
Likewise the guru is the Sangha too
The creator of everything is the guru
The guru is the glorious heruka.
