Tibetan Book of the Dead - Visualising the Crown Chakra
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
(This should be done in the context of the following visualisation:)
At the crown of my head, on a lotus moon cushion,
'Is my spiritual teacher, [resplendent] in the form of Vajrasattva.
His body is translucent, like crystal, and at his heart,
[Resting] on a moon-disc, is a syllable HUM, surrounded by the Hundred syllable mantra
A stream of nectar then descends through my crown fontanellerla
Purifying my violations [of the commitments], my negativities and obscurations.
May Vajrasattva, glorious transcendent one,
Anoint me at this very moment
With the nectar stream of pristine cognition,
So that the negativities and obscurations
Of myself and all sentient beings, without exception, are purified.
