The Hayagriva mantra is in the following sutra, available for all public:
Taisho Tripitaka Indian Compilation
T20 Esoteric Teachings Division III
1184. The Dharma of Sequential Liturgy of the Eight Syllable Dharani for Cultivating the Mandala by the Great Sage, Wonderfully Auspicious Bodhisattva
1185. a. The Buddha Speaks of the Sutra of Manjushuri's Dharanis of His Dharma Jeweled Treasury
b. Manjushuri's Dharanis of His Dharma Jeweled Treasury
...so I don't think one has to be specially empowered to use this mantra. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
The version of Sanskrit transliteration that I have come across is:
Om, amṛtod-bhava hūṃ phaṭ
Very similar to eijo's one.
