Tantra of the Blessed Vajrapani in Blue robes

1 2 3 4-6 7-11 12-13

     I prostrate myself before the Blessed glorious Vajrapani in blue robes! I prostrate myself before the Enlightened Ones and the Bodhisattvas of the three times!
     That's what I heard once. The blessed Akshobhya was in the palace of Atanatya, the enlightened one of the Vajra family, along with the bodhisattva Vajrapani, Vajranikaya, Vajradharan, Vajraparamanayakaran, Vajrabhrishahana, Vajravyadasarvanaya, Vajradhatukarmajina, Vajrakantaviharatra and others who surrounded him in the number of ten million.
     Then the bodhisattva-mahasattva Vajrapani pierced the heart three times with the vajra. Circling the Blessed One three times, he prostrated himself. He got down on his right knee and said the following:
     Blessed one! Tathagata! The great Vajradhara, who subdues all bhutas! Please explain the great tantra called "The subjugation of all Vajras, performing the subjugation of poisons that are under the ground"!
      Great vidyadhara! Please explain! Great all-encompassing Lord! Please explain! The great one who exercises the subjugation of all who are poisonous! Please explain! The great one that destroys all darkness! Please explain!
     Vajrapani said so and the Blessed One replied to Vajrapani:
     Great Vajradhara! It is good that you, who possess the sacrament, have asked for the benefit of living beings for a reason called " The Subjugation of everything by Vajra."
      Well done, O Lord of the hidden! All right, O great bodhisattva!
     Therefore, you and all of the Vajrapani family hear [the teaching] and keep it in mind! I will fully reveal [the teaching]. Stick to it thanks to the explanation of the tantra "Vajra that subdues bhuta in the Vajra dungeon"!
     Said so and the Blessed One plunged into the balance of samadhi called " The destruction of all demonic influences and bhuta from under the earth through the samadhi of subjugating everything by vajra." Immediately after the Blessed One had fallen into balance in this samadhi, from all the holes of the hairs on the body of the Blessed One, a multitude of angry [manifestations] appeared, bringing about the subjugation of all the poison. [Appeared] and filled three levels, underground, ground surface, and aboveground. As soon as the sounds of hūṁ filled the Naga's poisonous haunts beneath the earth, the eight Naga kings and their retinue obeyed. And they were called before the Blessed One.
     Then the king of the Nagas, Ananta, showed a poisonous mood and emitted a special heat on the exhalation. The Blessed One became aware of this attitude and bestowed his blessing on Vajrapani, the lord of the hidden. After that, a mantra called "Complete appeasement of the wrath of all the Nagas" was recited.»:

     oṁ nīla vajra krodha nāga hūṁ phaṭ

     So it was said.

     Then Naga Ananta completely calmed the mind, and by becoming enlightened, the mind and all the nagas were completely pacified.
     Then Ananta and the other great naga kings, who are under the earth, said the following to the Blessed One, the great Vajradhara:
     Blessed one! So that in the future future times will come, there will be no obstacles for living beings due to demonic influences from under the ground, we ask you to explain the ritual that pacifies all the harmful [that is present] there! All of us, the Naga kings and our entourage, ask for clarification [of such a ritual, so that] there is no possibility for obstacles for these great living beings! Please explain how [the manifestation] is good for us, the Naga kings!
     So they prayed. Then the Blessed One, the great Vadrjadhara, looked slightly at the great naga kings and said:
     Kings of the Nagas! Good! It's question time. Listen to the explanations that I fully reveal for the benefit of living beings!
     [Said so, and was answered:]
     Well, O Blessed One!
     So the nagas said, and all the others listened accordingly.
     Then Blessed One explained such a chapter as " The Subjugation of the Nagas."
     hūṁ
     For the benefit of all living beings, this teacher, the great Vajradhara, took a special look at the entourage-the retinue [that was ]here and emitted rays of light in all [directions]. Having done so, he proclaimed a method that performs the destruction of demonic influences.
      On the eighth day of the white direction [of the month] or similar fourteenth and fifteenth - [come] to a place that is completely secluded. [While there,] perfectly imagine an angry Vajrapani showing a youthful form. [When you imagine,] Put in a precious vessel or clay bowl made pure seven types of jewelry, such as gold, etc. After doing this, repeat the secret mantra one hundred and eight times. By the truth of the commands of the Three Jewels, offer torma bhuta. When you completely hide in the ground, the stable [foundation] where they live, the poisonous nagas and bhutas will be appeased. If there is no benefit from appeasement, then at this time toxic weapons will break out in your own home and [there will be] a strong unbearable suffering. There is no doubt that you will achieve peace by remembering the past at this time.
     Then here the Blessed One in a special way proclaimed the ritual of the deity of deeds:
     Always have an enlightened attitude. Have all the heartfelt commitments and vows. Perform acts of ablution. On a perfectly pure land, compose a corresponding beautiful mandala. Imagine that the Enlightened Ones and the Bodhisattvas [are drawn] in front of you with an iron hook arising from the syllable hūṁ. Make offerings, etc.

     oṁ śūnyatā jñāna vajra svabhāva ātmā ko haṁ

     Meditate on the various samadhi of emptiness. In the sphere of celestial space, the syllable a [arises] and [from it arises] Moon. [It occurs] primarily the syllable hūṁ. Meditate that rays of light are flashing everywhere. All the obscurations-the flares of the six [species] of creatures-are cleared. Having established this at the level of perfect liberation, the light gathers [back]. Imagine it as an aspect of the syllable hūṁ.
      Imagine that its essence has a five-pointed vajra and radiates garlands of light rays. His light dissolves into the essence of the vajra of living beings. Out of it flashes the Great Wrathful's great bodily form, a body of blue color. With his left [leg] extended, he is sixteen years old. Decorated with eight [Naga kings, such as] Ananta, etc. It has a form of black flesh color. With one face, two hands holding the vajra. Has clothes that shine with blue [light]. Three beautiful red eyes look up into the sky. The braid rises up and unravels [with a stream of hair down]. It has a vajra diadem. Imagine it like this.
     Then the great wrathful primordial wisdom is invoked:

     jaḥ hūṁ baṁ hoḥ

     [Called] enters the foundation. The head, throat, and heart are decorated with the mantra of the thirteen syllables of the aspects oṁ, aḥ, and hūṁ. Imagine the chakra, the lotus, and the vajra. Imagine that you receive the Akshobhyavajra initiation and everything is destroyed in perfect purity.
     The Blessed One then proclaimed this root mantra for all acts:

     oṁ nīlāṁbara dhara vajrapāṇi hūṁ hūṁ pha

     Proclaim it. These garlands of mantras [are] shining white for appeasement, red for submission, yellow for magnification, blue-black for angry [activity]. Drop all thoughts and perform recitation. Through various radiations and gatherings, a meditative immersion corresponding to aspiration is realized. Completely give up yoga without aspirations..
      What are the benefits of zeal in this mind when the Wrathful King Vajrapani shows the stability of all virtuous things? Everywhere special joy is purified, etc. Fully implement invisibility, etc. You become virtuous in your particular behavior and stable in everything. With stability, one becomes completely detached from the connection [with the mundane]. You fully realize the highest among the real achievements-siddhi.
     Thus ends the first chapter of the realization of the acts of appeasement and deity from the glorious tantra of the dungeon by vajra.
