A brief teaching: Water Offering to Dzambhala
"First, generate yourself as Chenrezig, then recite, I offer this water to the holy body of Dzambhala, who rides a dragon. His body is white in color. His right hand holds a trident; his left, a club. He is surrounded by the four dakinis, one in each cardinal direction.
The four dakinis are: in the east, blue Vajra Dakini holding a vajra in her right hand and a vessel full of auspicious, variegated substances in her left; in the south, yellow Jewel Dakini holding a heap of jewels in her right hand and an iron hook in her left; in the west, red Lotus Dakini holding a lotus in her right hand and a jewel-marked banner of victory in her left; and in the north, green Karma Dakini holding a double vajra in her right hand and a treasure-producing mongoose in her left. All of them sit in the half-lotus posture and are adorned with jeweled ornaments.
Now offer the water by pouring it on Dzambhalas head. It is good to use a watering can with a long spout, which lets you offer water in the preferred fine stream. As you pour the water with your right hand, snap the fingers of your left at your heart (to remind yourself of emptiness) and recite the mantra, OM PADMA KRODHA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRI DAYA HUM PHET seven, twenty-one or as many times as possible.
To collect more merit when you do this practice, the most important thing is to visualize Dzambhala as your own guru. Also visualize unceasing wish-fulfilling jewels or billions and billions of dollars pouring out of the mouths of the dragon and the mongoose like a beautiful waterfall tumbling down a mountainside. The water you offer generates great bliss on Guru Dzambhalas head; he experiences endless bliss like the sky. After you have offered the water, from this state of bliss, Dzambhalas mind is extremely inspired, and he promises to help you completely, to provide everything you need for all your projects to succeed and for you to realize all attainments." ~ Lama Yeshe ~
