Diamond Vajra, Lightning Vajra
Exalted fire of insight-wisdom
Born from the syllable Ah,
Bearing the Grand Illusion.

Unoriginated… beginningless.

Lions-roar of egolessness,
Without the sense of “I” and “mine”.
Reverence to you, Illusion’s net.
Homage to you, the Buddha’s dancer.

With indestructible sword, victorious in battle
With a hundred eyes, eyes of Vajra,
Glorious, immutable in nature
Glorious, in essence Vajra.

Diamond Vajra, Lightning Vajra
Eyes of Vajra, in essence Vajra.

Deity beyond Gods,
Crossed over the wilderness of existence.
Reverence to you, the teacher of the world.
Homage to you, the guide of the world.

Having fiercest eyes, eyes blazing like Vajra.
A lord with his weapon, whose source is Vajra.

Diamond Vajra, Lightning Vajra
Shaking hundreds of world spheres.
Stand silent in the heart,
Unlimited in loving kindness.

Diamond Vajra, Lightning Vajra
Eyes of Vajra, in essence Vajra.
