49. Wrathful Padmasambhava Practice

I (Grandmaster Lu) teach Wrathful Padmasambhava Practice as follows:

Preliminary Practice:

Great Homage.

Mandala Offering.

Fourfold Refuge

Vajra Heart Practice.

Four Immeasurables Vows

Armor Protection.


Main Practice:

First, visualize emptiness. Recite the Emptiness Mantra. (Form the Wrathful Padmasambhava Mudra)


Visualize a red "Hum" syllable appearing in the space before one.

The "Hum" syllable transforms into Dorje Drolo, Wrathful Padmasambhava. Dorje Drolo has one head, two arms, and three eyes.

His body is maroon in color.

He wears a brown colored brocaded robe on his upper body while wearing a dancing skirt on his lower body.

His right hand holds up a vajra scepter made of iron.

His left hand holds a phurba dagger. (Out from the fingertips of his left hand, there is a nine-headed black scorpion.)

Standing on the back of a pregnant tigress,

with maras on the sun disc within a lotus,

he calmly abides in the midst of fierce flames.

Practice entering of the deity into oneself and oneself into the deity. Practitioner transforms into Wrathful Padmasambhava Dorje Drolo.

Recite Mantra:

Hum-hum-hum, om-ah-hum, wa-ji-la, gu-ru, zhuo-lo, luo-ga, sa-er-wa, sid-dhi-hum- hum.

Or Heart Mantra: “Om-ah-hum, ah-er-xi-ke, ni-er-xi-ke, nan-mo, ba-ge-wa-di, hum-hum-pei.

Or: “Hum-hum-hum-hum-hum-hum-hum………..

Entering Samadhi:

Practitioner and the Principal Deity merge into Light.

Pei pei pei.

In an instant, Guru Padmasambhava with fierce and wrathful appearance manifests again.


By this virtue, may I

Instantly transform into Wrathful Padmasambhava

May all sentient beings be free from doubt And delivered to the buddha realm

Recite the 100 Syllable Mantra (3 times).

Great Homage.

Exit the Shrine


Magnificent merits of Dorje Drolo:

  1. Protection from harm by evil deities, malevolent spirits, and karmic creditors.

  2. Immunity from malignant spells cast by heretics. 

  3. Freedom from nightmares and illnesses due to ominous omens.

  4. Protecting one’s entire family from illnesses and misfortune.

  5. Avoidance of fire disasters, smooth career progression, and abundant profits.

  6. Easy childbirth for women and prevention of premature infant mortality.

  7. Good health, freedom from illnesses and disasters.

  8. Protection from harm by evildoers and not subject to manipulation by malicious individuals.

  9. Longevity, wealth, and prestige in this lifetime.


According to what I know:

The Practices of Vajrakilaya, Machig Labdron Black Wrathful Dakini, and Dorje Drolo are the three major secret dharmas. In the five turbid and evil ages, manifesting a fierce appearance, they are the three great Dharma protectors.

Dorje Drolo can subjugate:

The celestial mara.

The five aggregates mara.

The mara of death.

The mara of afflictions.
