Preliminaries

Set out extensive offerings as you would for a Tsok feast. Ensure that there are representations of enlightened body, speech and mind. Then, as you wait for the master to arrive, you should sit quietly and prepare your mind by reciting the Lama’s name mantra:

OM AH GURU VAJRADHARA MANJUSHRI PRIYA MATI SARVA SIDDHI HUNG HUNG

When the Lama enters, he should be preceded by a student holding incense and leading him to his throne. The Lama will make three prostrations and then take his place on the throne. At this point, everyone should offer three prostrations and then sit down.

[1] Blessing the Offerings

Start by purifying the offerings by reciting the following mantras and prayers:

OM VAJRA AMRITA KUNDALI HANA HANA HUNG PHAT

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO AHAM

From the [syllable] BHRUM, the dwelling place. Atop [which sits] an immeasurable mansion made from precious jewels. In the middle of all these perfectly developed qualities, from an OM, a large and spacious vessel made from jewels arises. From a melting HUNG, arise offerings made from divine substances—water for drinking, water for washing, flowers, incense, radiant lamps, fragrant water, food, music and so forth—a virtuous field of excellent offerings that fill the entire sky.

OM VAJRA ARGHAM SOHA | OM VAJRA PADYAM SOHA | OM VAJRA PUSHPAM AH HUNG | OM VAJRA DHUPE AH HUNG | OM VAJRA ALOKE AH HUNG | OM VAJRA GANDHE AH HUNG | OM VAJRA NEIWIDYA AH HUNG | OM VAJRA SHABDA AH HUNG

Play the music for the KALACHAKRA OFFERING.

[2] Refuge and Bodhicitta

After that, go for refuge, generate Bodhicitta and [meditate on] the four immeasurables:

From now until I and all sentient beings as limitless as space reach the essence of enlightenment, I take refuge in the noble root and lineage lords of Dharma, the glorious pure lamas, who embody the body, speech, mind, qualities and actions of the Buddhas of the three times and the ten directions, and are the source of the 84,000 Dharmas and kings of the noble Arya Sangha.

I take refuge in the Dharma lords, the glorious Lamas.
I take refuge in the enlightened mandala of Yidams.
I take refuge in the bhagavans, the perfect Buddhas.
I take refuge in the immaculate holy Dharma.
I take refuge in the noble Arya Sangha. (3x)

With the aspiration to liberate [all] sentient beings,
Until [I attain] supreme enlightenment,
I will always take refuge in
The Buddha, Dharma and Sangha,

Through wisdom together with compassion,
With effort, for the sake of [all] sentient beings,
After taking my place in front of the Buddha,
I will attain perfect Buddhahood.

May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all sentient beings never be separated from the sublime bliss that is free from suffering.
May all ssentient beings abide in the great equanimity free from attachment and aversion.

[3] Establishing the Field of Merit

Now establish the field of merit by first dissolving everything into emptiness:

OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO AHAM

From the sphere of emptiness, in the space in front of you, from a syllable HUNG, a vast and spacious wheel of protection. Inside, from BHRUM, an inestimable palace made from manifold jewels with an abundance of ornaments and decorations. In the middle of that, a vast and spacious jeweled throne supported by eight great lions, on top of a multicoloured lotus and seats of sun, moon, [rahu] and kalagni.

On top of that, the root lama Vajradhara, his body [dark-blue in] colour like a sapphire gem,  strongly blazing with light. His two hands holding a vajra and bell crossed at the heart. Sitting firmly with legs crossed in the vajra posture, wearing all manner of silks and precious jewel ornaments, adorned by the thirty-two major marks and eighty minor signs; His mind is pleased by the bliss of the supreme wisdom of personal experience.

He emits immeasurable light rays—the inconceivable secret of [his] body, speech and mind. His enlightened activities pervading the ten directions and the three times. The nature which is the non-duality of basic space and primordial wisdom; In the space above, the lineage lamas; In the environment of the body, the divine assembly of the mandala of yidams headed by [Kalachakra] Yab-Yum and the buddhas along with the assembly of bodhisattva, pratyeka and shravaka arhats; in the lower part, Dakinis [amass] together with an assembly of Dharma protectors; By establishing each respective offering along with complete ornaments, everything abides.

Rest your mind in this visualisation for a few moments.
