Vajra Guru mantra - the twelve syllable mantra of Guru Padmasambhava.

Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo says:

  • It begins with OM AH HUNG, which are the seed syllables of the three vajras (of body, speech and mind).
  • VAJRA signifies the dharmakaya since [like the adamantine vajra] it cannot be “cut” or destroyed by the elaborations of conceptual thought.
  • GURU signifies the sambhogakaya, which is “heavily” laden with the qualities of the seven aspects of union.
  • PADMA signifies the nirmanakaya, the radiant awareness of the wisdom of discernment arising as the lotus family of enlightened speech.

Remembering the qualities of the great Guru of Oddiyana, who is inseparable from these three kayas, pray with the continuous devotion that is the intrinsic display of the nature of mind, free from the elaboration of conceptual thought.

  • All the supreme and ordinary accomplishments—SIDDHI—are obtained through the power of this prayer,
  • and by thinking, “HUNG! May they be bestowed upon my mindstream, this very instant!”
