With the pride of vajra holder,
the vajra [male sexual organ] with lotus enters the lotus [female sexual organ].
With lingam placed into the bhaga,
the yogi performs hum phat;
the bodhichitta [sexual energy] is not emitted.

One’s own secret-area five-pointed vajra [male sexual organ] marked with a lotus enters the consort’s lotus [female sexual organ]. Within that state the yogi holds the pride of being the vajra-holder main deity Kakalchakra, he utters the syllables hum phat, and dwells within the activity of union arising from placing the father’s lingum into the mother’s bhaga. This brings the elemental bodhichitta [sexual energy] down to the tip of the jewel, where it is not to be emitted.”

“Meditate on the supreme and unchanging [bliss].
With vajra [male sexual organ] placed inside lotus [female sexual organ],
brings the winds [vital forces] into the drops [bodhichitta],
the drops into the chakras;
the movement of drops halted at the vajra [male sexual organ],
always rigid, the yogi continually raises fluid [never releasing it].
With the Yoga of mahamudra [great seal],
the descent to the vajra, and by its blessing,
the instances of supreme unchanging [bliss],
completed at 21,600,
will bring the great enlightenment,
the attainment of Vajrasattva [diamond soul].”
