Self-Initiation of Vajrabhairava
Author: Richard Guard (Translator) and Sherpa Tulku (Translator)
The texts presented here are an intermediate-length sadhana and a concise self-initiation ritual of the Solitary Hero Vajrabhiarava. After receiving the Highest yoga Tantra initiation of Vajrabhairava, and then completing the retreat of this deity, with the compensating ritual fire offering of peace, one is authorized to do the self-initiation. It is important to do the self-initiation in order to restore broken vows and tantric commitments. A sadhana must be done in conjunction with self-initiation will enable many practitioners to do this practice more frequently.
