Vajrayogini Sadhana and Commentary, a translation of an oral explanation given by Geshe Ngawang Dhargey in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. in 1981. Traditionally, the practice of tantra is supposed to be kept secret, and it is to be noted that this book is intended purely for those who have received the proper initiations. However, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama has advised, the great misunderstandings to which tantra is often subject to are more harmful than the partial lifting of such secrecy, so there is a necessity for books to be made available which contain authentic explanations.

Venerable Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey was born in the Kham province of Tibet in 1928 and attended Sera Je Monastery. He escaped from Tibet in 1959 to India where he was able to continue teaching and meditating. He received his Geshe Lharampa degree in 1969. In 1971 His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama asked him to teach Dharma courses to westerners at the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives in Dharamsala. In 1986 he left for Dunedin, New Zealand, where he was the resident Spiritual Director at the Thargye Dharma Center until his death in 1996.

Foreword

The Library of Tibetan Works & Archives is pleased to be able to publish Vajrayogini Sadhana and Commentary, a translation of an oral explanation given by Geshe Ngawang Dhargey in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A., in 1981. Traditionally, the practice of tantra is supposed to be kept secret, and it is to be noted that this book is intended purely for those who have received the proper initiations. However, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama has advised, the great misunderstandings to which tantra is often subject to are more harmful than the partial lifting of such secrecy, so there is a necessity for books to be made available which contain authentic explanations.

LTWA is deeply grateful to Gen Rinpoche Geshe Ngawang Dhargey for giving the permission to publish this text. We would also like to acknowledge the fine translation by Alan Wallace and Richard Guard’s final editing.

Sale and Distribution of this book is restricted. It is requested that only those with Highest Yoga Tantra initiation, preferably that of Vajrayogini, should read this book. Responsibility for this lies entirely with the reader and according to tradition, disregarding this could have detrimental results.

We hope that this book will be of benefit to those serious students interested in practicing the Vajra Path to enlightenment for the welfare of all sentient beings.
