Kaji wrote:In Chinese Esoteric Buddhism, Cundi practice is quite widely known and practised. One of its features that is particularly appealing to some is it does not require the practitioner to refrain from eating meat and eggs, eating the five pungent vegetables, drinking alcohol, having a sexual relationship, etc. for it to be effective.
From what I know, proper Esoteric Cundi practice is best initiated and taught by a teacher with lineage. Proper practice requires things such as a special mirror, mandala, etc.
Of course, one may simply recite the mantra without the most proper Esoteric practice.

(at least most mantras) they don't need transmissions, recited by all lay-people- especially aged ladies - , in Korea in every ji-jang celebrating day(地藏齋日) the 13th day of every lunar month, all of old women machanically, recite it.
