In order to actualise of the Master Consecration to those of weak sensibility, instruction upon the Seal of Ritual karmamudra is given. In this way the Hevajra Tantra incorporates the dual tantras as the preliminaries for the non-dual culmination.
As relative white like jasmine, as absolute essentially blissful, the Enlightened Con- sciousness should be generated in the female Lotus which is Sukhavati, the Citadel ofBliss, by forming the evam. A question regarding the utility of emanating a deity as an antidote is asked.
What was special about their era? The need to directly perceive or experience the method was given greater priority than sermons etc. The Sole Hero yoga is described. In relative, social terms the metaphors for these qualities can be described in women, as the selfless caring of a mother for her child; and in men, as the wish to protect or provide for the mother and child.

Published January 1st by Motilal Banarsidass Pub. Therefore, the transformation of the unrefined nature is achieved by the application of Voidness, Wisdom and Compassion, Means.
In order to fully examine, research and appraise the Krama, the Processes of Generation, Completion and Perfection, found in the Hevajra Tantra it is first necessary to examine and understand the compositional components of a Vajrayana tantric treatise, in the com- mentary, following the view found in the Uttara Tantra ofthe Guhy asamaja Tantra, it is said that a tantra is a treatise which has three compositional facets, namely the Source facet ofthe tantra, the Fruit facet of the tantra and the Means facet ofthe tantra.
Hence a valid need, because of the introduction of tantric values into another social context, for clear, rational and intelligent information regarding the vibrant and essential features which make up the tantric tradition. The method of the Wisdom Consecration is defined. This is the Sandhyabhasa, the Tantric Code Language. The consort practice for the yogi who has completed the pre- liminary stage is given. They are able to reveal and actualize the Enlightened Consciousness and by this direct personal experience the limited personality is fully resolved into the Innate nature.
Introduction xxvii Regarding the bio-genetic view of the deities it is stated in the root treatise that: According to the tantric view, because the emotions arise in the body the deities are said to reside in the body. Beings are bound by passion and concealev released by utilizing passion.

This union, at the conception point, is a dramatic event in that the genetic codes for essenc the bodily form and the emotional traits which make up the personality are set in motion at that time. The three compositional components are used in the composition of all the principal Buddhist tantras. As these phenomenal forms are dependent on previous causes that would demon- strate the non-substantiality of phenomenal things. The absolute Concealed Essence, the Innate nature and its relative, limited aspect are simultane- ously present at the time when the embryo is conceived.
The task of the yogi is to become aware of and directly experience the Enlightened Consciousness. That is, the union of these two components symbolizes the union of the two deities of Wisdom and Means.
Today, itinerant members ofthe Baul sect of Bengal still sing Sahaja songs. Sometimes the vernacular of that era has been utilised to define crucial views regarding the tantric method. That is, in terms of the stages of the Consecration, when the Vajra is placed in the secret place, the Lotus, the Joys that arise in evam are distinguished by way of the Moments and from the experience of the Moments the knowledge of the bliss located in the evam is known.
The first category is the underly- ing, Concealed Essence of all things, the innate Enlightened Conscious- ness. In the commentary it is said: In this Secret Consecration, in- struction upon the emanation of the Seal of the Sacrament sama- yamudra is given for those of medium sensibility. In his carya songs, Krsnacarya proclaims himself to be a Kapalika Y ogi.
These two translations therefore highlight not only the sophisticated but controversial Buddhist tantric methods, which constitute the very essence of the Tibetan tantric method, but also provide an authoritative historical record of and testament to the unique and uninhibited classic, 5th—13th century tantric period of Indian religious history.
In this manner the Processes to Buddhahood, the Means, can be indicated and defined through such a tantric language analysis ofthe phrase evam maya, ‘thus have I’. However, the vast majority of the population in the west are ignorant of and unaffected by this transference and generally speaking interest in Buddhism is small but growing. No w in order to complete this introduction to the Hevajra T antra and the Yogaratnamala the means to and the nature of the realization of the Innate will be discussed.
The essential nature is known as the Innate and is the one Concealed Essence of all things.
