for the use of those who have completed an approximation retreat enabling the
activities and the accompanying subsequent pacifying burning offering. This
volume makes available the complete self-empowerment ritual, together with
practice and set-up instructions. A practitioner’s ability to perform regular
self-initiation practice during this lifetime is essential to engaging in deep
purification of the mind, especially in preparation for, at the very least, a
positive death and future rebirth, or even better, for achieving the pure land
of Vajrayogini herself, Khachö, in this life, at death, in the bardo, or in
one’s next life. In addition, the self-empowerment of Vajrayogini is simple to
perform, compared with the self-initiation rites of many other Maha-anuttara
Yoga Tantra deities. For this reason, it is highly appropriate for
practitioners in these degenerate times, when time is short and the ease of practice
can greatly help us to keep our tantric commitments.
