Buddha Heruka is a manifestation of the enlightened compassion of all the Buddhas. By relying upon him, we can swiftly attain spontaneous great bliss, a very subtle mind of profound concentration and wisdom that enables us to realize quickly the ultimate nature of ourself and other phenomena. The power of this wisdom eliminates all our faults and delusions such as anger, depression and selfishness, thus making us a healthier and better person. Our personal positive transformation will also benefit other people around us.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso explains with clarity and precision how we can practise the sublime instructions of Heruka body mandala, and thereby gradually transform our ordinary world and experiences into those of a Buddha, a fully awakened being. This is a treasury of instructions for those wishing to follow the Tantric path.
