When looking for precise instructions for obtaining the secret Street Fighter Hadouken attack in Mega Man X, it is often very hard to get a good, solid definition because of all the inaccuracies and myths out there. So, here it is, as specific as I can get:

The Hadouken is obtained through a secret Dr. Light capsule that appears in Armored Armadillo's stage on top of the ledge above the entrance to his lair. To make it appear, you need to fulfill three separate requirements: You must have defeated all 8 Mavericks, you must have stood anywhere on the ledge 4 times (not necessarily grabbing the energy capsule), and you need to have all 4 Dr. Light upgrades, all 8 heart tanks, and all sub tanks. Note that these requirements are completely separate. Once you have all of them met, a Dr. Light capsule will appear on the ledge next time you go there. You could stand on the ledge 4 times on your first visit to Armored Armadillo's stage if you wanted, and then come back later when you've gotten all the tanks and Dr. Light upgrades. Dr. Light's capsule will appear the next time you visit the ledge, not immediately as you're standing on it.
You DO NOT need to have full health when you stand on the ledge, and you DO NOT need to have full sub tank energy. You DO NOT need to jump back into the pit and kill yourself, but it is generally faster that way. If you need more lives, the strange looking bat (a cameo appearance from the classic Mega Man games) at the beginning of the stage has a very high rate for dropping extra lives.

Note that the Hadouken cannot be saved in a password, so every time you play you must obtain it again.

The Hadouken is performed just like it is in Street Fighter: Press down, down/forward, then forward+shot button. You have to have full health to use it though.
