Oral Instructions on Offering Water to the Glorious Jambhala

    I prostrate to the glorious Jambhala!
    When you visualize the yellow syllable jaṁ at the tip of the ring finger, meditate on Jambhala in a vessel with the help of mudra, etc. Doing so, through the flow of water at the root of the ring finger falling in the gap between the hand, [the stream] falls, as like this, onto his head. [While doing this,] meditate and recite one hundred and eight syllables jaṁ.
    These are the oral instructions for offering water to Jambhala. When the seed of the fifth [letter] of the first [row] of the bruṁ syllable becomes perfect on the right hand, imagine the five Tathagatas. Having imagined, there also appears the seed [or nectar] along with the moon. The origin of the universally known Jambhala is in front of itself from the syllable jaṁ. With the seed [or nectar] as explained earlier, stretch out your index finger and [recite the mantra] one hundred and eight times with water on his head. With a hand that is half a fist, you scoop up water and pour it out. Imagining this way, you will make everything perfect completely.
    These are the oral instructions on Jambhala. He who is known as the Victorious Vairochana, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amoghasiddhi, and known as Akshobhya, have bodies of white, yellow, red, green and blue. [They constitute] the mudras of supreme enlightenment, the bestowal of supreme, meditative absorption, fearlessness, and the mudra of touching the ground. The seed-syllable of the Tathagat: "bhrūṁ āṁ jrīṁ khaṁ hūṁ".
    Imagining the five Tathagatas arising from the five syllables that are on the Moon, right hand, meditate on the aspect in the form of a seed [or sap]. Imagining Jambhala arising from the syllable jaṁ, offer a handful of water with devotion. Make offerings, with one hundred and eight repetitions of his mantra.
    This concludes the oral instructions on offering water to Jambhala.
    Translated by Lama Karma Paljor (O.E.Filippov).
