If you did not remember How Padam Sambhava looks like, here i attached few picture of him. If you like to know more about Padmasambhava then visit this post first PADMASHAMBHAVA
VAJRA GURU MANTRA
Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padme Siddhi Hum
Pronounciation (Tibetan):
Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Pema Siddhi Hum.

Mantra for Peace, Healing, Transformation and Protection.

"Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padame Siddhi Hum"

This mantra comes from Padmasambhava, the patron saint of Tibet. Padmasambhava (also known as Guru Rinpoche) was an Indian siddha who was invited to Tibet by King Trisong Detsen, to propagate the doctrine of Buddha. Because Padmasambhava’s teachings contain many hidden treasures intended for generations to come, he has become known as the most important Tibetan master.
What is Meaning of Vajra Guru Mantra?

To get a clear view of the meaning of the words, we divide this mantra in three parts:
Om Ah Hum / Vajra Guru Padme / Siddhi Hum.

These syllables have an outer, inner and secret meaning. The sounds and the intention during reciting purify on the different levels.
OM stands for the Body and also the essence of form,
AH stands for Speech and the essence of sound,
HUM for Spirit and the essence of spirituality.
At the deepest level OM purifies the way to a limitless compassion, AH to a shining nature and HUM realizes the kernel of heavenly reality.
The Vajra or Thunderbolt is the Diamond that stands for unlimited power – for great wisdom that cannot be destroyed by ignorance. Read about The Vajra or Thunderbolt
GURU stands for somebody who possesses a beautiful quality in wisdom as well as compassion; it signifies the outer and the inner master.
PADME or Pema means Lotus and in this text stands for enlightened speech.
SIDDHI means the real attainment, fulfillment of wisdom of all Buddha’s and brings the mantra into its consecration.
HUM for Spirit and the essence of spirituality.
Also there is 7 Line prayer for the Padamasambhava called "The vajra Guru seven-line Prayer"
