Hevajra, also known as the "King of Tantras," ranks among the most important Tantras of the highest Yoga Tantra class. According to the Kagyu system of tantra classification Shri Hevajra belongs to the 'Wisdom-mother' Anuttarayoga tantra. It is a special transmission and is rarely given. In the Kagyu tradition it is was handed down by Marpa (1012-1097), the great translator.
The Hevajra Tantra was transmitted by Marpa as part of a series of Tantras that became known as the Seven Mandalas of Ngok to one of his four main disciples, Ngok Chöku Dorje (1036-1106). This tradition was primarily upheld by the Drikung Kagyu lineage. To save these teachings from oblivion, Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye (1813-1899) combined them with other teachings of Marpa to form the Kagyu Ngag Dzö
Tummo, Channels, Winds & Drops & Coemergent Great Bliss
This Completion stage text reveals the essence of the Kagyu tradition of practicing the Hevajra completion stage. The Completion Stage text text by Rigdzin Chökyi Dragpa was designed specifically to compliment the generation stage sadhana of Hevajra with the Hevajra completion stage practices. These teachings include very important practical teachings on the Completion Stage including practices on engaging in consort practice.
The sadhana practice composed by Rigzin Chokyi Drakpa comes from the tradition of the great Mahasiddha Shantipa and contains in clear direct language the practices of Tummo, Consort Practice, the Four Joys and Co-Emergent Great Bliss. The commentary text on the Completion Stage makes these practices explicitly clear.
