Vajrabhairava.com started in 1998 as a support and collaboration site for our Anuttara Yoga Tantra practice group in the San Francisco Bay area. A group of dedicated practitioners got together to translate, create and produce usable Yamantaka sadhanas, commentaries and other practice materials. We were soon joined and greatly helped by renowned scholar and translator Dr. Alexander Berzin who ever since has guided us patiently through subtleties of the Dharma. Sharpa Tulku Rinpoche has contributed a great deal of wonderful Yamantaka materials. In the past few years more translators have helped us out, like the formidable Hermes Brandt, or our generous friend Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche who never gets tired to answer the many questions we have. We are also greatly indebted to our friend, the thangka painter and great artist Andy Weber who helped us with the visualization material. Nicholas Ribush of the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive allowed us to have Lama Zopa Rinpoche's A Chat Aboout Yamantaka available on our site for download. Most recently the very gifted lotsawa David Gonsalez joined us and long-time Yamantaka practioner/teacher/lama Jhampa Shaneman has merged his support website (yamantaka.org) with ours.
To this very day, vajrabhairava.com is not an organization of any sorts — and there are no plans to create one in the future. Early this year we had a devastating loss. Our friend and my beloved husband, the developer and maintainer of this and other dharma websites died after a short illness It is my hope to keep this website and sister websites up and available for practitioners. Due to Wolfgang's death we will now need a contribution from you to continue to maintain and improve these sites. We can't do this anymore without your help. We need for you to contribute and we are asking for a donation of $10 a year or $1 per month. Please help. We share the same goals with similar endeavors like the International Kalachakra Network, Guhyasamaja.com, or our sister projects, Vajrayogini.com and Chakrasamvara.com.
