Now line 107:
Mantra: 107. Bwo Li Dan La Ye
Verse: The As-You-Will pearl is wonderful and inconceivable. In the Southern Division of Transformation Birth, it bestows
fearlessness. When the Heart Mantra is received and upheld, things reveal their
original shape. Li Mei and Wang Liang are drawn by its magnetic power.
The As-You-Will pearl is wonderful and inconceivable. This is the Wonderful Jewel Heart Mantra, which is like the inconceivable As-You-Will precious pearl. In the Southern Division of Transformation Birth, it bestows fearlessness. The south is the Production of Jewels Division where there are inconceivable transformations and the giving of fearlessness. With the As-You-Will pearl, one universally gives to all living beings so they obtain all the jewel treasuries.
When the Heart Mantra is received and upheld, things reveal their original shape. If you recite the Five Great Heart Mantras, no matter how fierce the goblins or demons, they must appear in their original form so that you can know them for what they are.
Li Mei and Wang Liang are drawn by its magnetic power. Whether it is a Li Mei, a Wang Liang, or any other weird creature, as soon as you recite the Mantra, it's stuck--like being stuck to a magnet. Such creatures can't undergo their transformations anymore. This Mantra is hard to meet in a hundred, thousand, ten thousand eons.
Only Sincerity Obtains a Response:
In cultivating all Dharma doors one must be sincere. It is said:
Be clear and pure in body and mind; fast, maintain morality and cleanse the body.
You should eradicate all false thinking as you cultivate Dharma doors. Then you can obtain a response with the Way, like an echo following a sound. That is called "having a response." If you aren't sincere, no matter how efficacious the Mantra is, it won't work.
So we say:
When the mind is sincere, then it's efficacious. If your mind is not sincere, it isn't magical.
What is sincerity? It means having no doubts and instead having true faith in the inconceivable power of the Mantra--faith that its power will never fail. If you can be truly sincere, then your cultivation will succeed. Sometimes people may cultivate for a long time and get no response. Then they may start to think, "Is the Buddhadharma not efficacious? What's going on? I'm not getting a response. "It's not that the Mantra is not efficacious. You are not succeeding because you are not sincere. You are merely bumbling your way through it, going through the motions. You are cheating on materials- -gold bricking--following the crowd. You have not brought forth true sincerity. So those who recite the Shurangama Mantra must be sincere and have true faith.
Where did you find this? Do you have the shurangama mantra with Shr Fu's commentaries?
