The Benefits of the Śākyamuni Buddha Mantra

The Benefits of the Śākyamuni Buddha Mantra

Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos


TADYATHĀ/ OṂ MUNE MUNE MAHĀMUNAYE SVĀHĀ

[Tibetan pronunciation:

TAY-YATHĀ/ ONG MUNE MUNE MAHĀMUNAYE SWĀHĀ (SŌHĀ)]

 

This is the heart-essence [mantra] of the our Teacher, the Bhagavāt Śākyamuni; and, as it says in the Perfection of Wisdom in a Few Words (Skt. ārya-svalpākṣara-prajñāpāramitā-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra, Tib. sher phyin yi ge nyung ngu):

 

Through the power of discovering this Mantra, Śākyamuni attained Buddhahood; and all Buddhas arise from it, as well. Through it, Avalokiteśvara too became supreme among Bodhisattvas. By merely hearing it, vast merit (good karmic potential) is attained without toil; and all karmic obscurations are purified. And if one is practicing [another] Mantra, then it will be accomplished without having any obstructions. Furthermore, when it is recited [just] one time, all the misdeeds performed over eighty trillion eons are purified.”

 

Thus was it taught.

 

Compiled by Akṣarabhadra.
