Heruka Chakrasamvara (Tib: Demchok Khorlo Dompa; 'Wheel of Perfect Bliss') is a tantric meditation deity (Yidam) of the Highest Yoga Tantra (Anuttara) of Vajrayana Buddhism.

Chakrasamvara, along with Hevajra and Vajrayogini, are the three main meditation Yidam practices of the Kagyu Lineage.

Importance of Yidam Practices:

As the saying goes:

Lama is the source of blessings (Tib: Jyin lap gyi tsawa, Lama)

Yidam is the source of accomplishment (Tib: Nyur drub gyi tsawa, Yidam)

Dakini is the source of activities (Tib: Trinley gyi tsawa, Khandro)

Yidam is the Source of Siddhis (Accomplishments). It's said that nearly all the 84 remarkable Indian Mahasiddhas attained complete enlightenment through relying on this deity. And since the time when this Tantra was introduced into Tibet, many great Tibetan masters have also accomplished perfect realizations through this practice.

The practice of Yidam is a special and profound method to quickly transform ordinary worldly samsaric deluded appearances into the extraordinary enlightened experience of the true state of all phenomena. To be more accurate, the Yidam practice uncovers the actual state of ultimate appearances which is primordially pure, empty of inherent existence and unceasing. This purity and emptiness has always been there within us, but is obscured and unseen due to our confused and deluded mind.
