The practice of Hayagriva can eliminate external and internal obstacles and problems, particularly those caused by demons and spirits.                                                                                                                 The empowerment of Hayagriva was originally received by Machik Trupai Gyalmo directly from Hayagriva.  She transmitted it to Tipu Sang Nga Dongpo, who transmitted to Rechungpa.  Rechungpa gave it to Milarepa who transmitted it to Gampopa and then the lineage was held by the Drigung Kagyu.  Eventually it went through the Tsarpa Tradition, and then to the Sakya.  From this,  to Gelugpa, and all of the Tibetan Buddhist schools.
