In English: The Blazing Wheel: A Skillful Method for Accomplishment

I PAY HOMAGE TO ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS! %

Thus have I heard: at one time, %

The Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, the Blessed One, was abiding at Vajrasana, %

and at that time was subduing Mara. %

The bodhisattvas, who were vidyadharas, Holders of Intrinsic Awareness, using these words spoke respectfully to the Transcendent Conqueror: %

“Bhagavan, until one attains the state of a vidyadhara, a Holder of Intrinsic Awareness, when one has to cut off the many enemies and hindrances, when one has to subdue the many enemies and hindrances, at that time, what skillful means can one use?” %

Thus they respectfully inquired. %

The Transcendent Conqueror answered thus: %

“There is a skillful expedient method for accomplishment, a mantra known as the Blazing Wheel. %

Use this one! %

Retain this one! %

Intone this one! %

Keep this one in your mind! %

When one recites this mantra, one becomes victorious over all hindrances; %

one becomes victorious over all hindrances, and one becomes fearless!” %

This is the mantra: %

OM DHURU DURU CHAKRA %

JAYA JAYA CHAKRA %

HANA HANA CHAKRA %

BHURU BHURU CHAKRA %

BRAHMARA BRAHMARA CHAKRA %

BHEDU MANI CHAKRA %

JVALA JVALA CHAKRA %

SAMBHAVE GANA NAYA SARA CHAKRA %

SALAYA SALAYA CHAKRA %

NAGASHAYA NAGASHAYA CHAKRA %

BAM BAM CHAKRA %

HUM HUM PHAT PHAT %

SAMANTARA CHAKRA %

TIPTA CHAKRA HUNG PHAT %

“When one recites this mantra, fierce and treacherous spirits will be cleared away, %

and one becomes liberated from the maw of destruction, and from billions of treacherous spirits!” %

When these words were uttered thus, the assembly of vidyadharas and bodhisattvas rejoiced: %

They vividly praised the noble speech of the Bhagavan, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror. %

This is a hidden treasure of Tulku Zangpo Dragpa, who revealed it from a sloping wall. It was codified by Rigdzin Godem.
