I screwed-up the link, but anyway the title of the bi-lingual book is cosmic-magic-syllables-save-the-world

Korean version of Shurangama dharani

monk version(formal version): http://olpost.com/v/2084034
nun(more fluid, casual): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irCo_f29eBc

in Korea, Shurangama matra is mainly chanted by Zen monks, especially a temple called haeinsa(海印寺 )if a monk doesn't recite the mantra 108times, he can not be permitted to particapate in retreats of temple's zen hall

One must study

1, the Shurangama Sutra
2. the Shurangama Mantra
3. the 50 Demonic states of Meditation
4. the Shurangama Samadi Sutra

after one has fully studied and understands ,
one is ready to start the cultivation of this Dharma.

How long did it take people to memorize this dharani?
I loved reciting it with the Sangha every morning during my stay at CTTB but since I'm not Chinese the syllables were not so easy for me to replicate.
A foolish man proclaims his qualifications,
A wise man keeps them secret within.
A straw floats on the surface of water,
But a precious gem placed upon it sinks to the depths

About two years for me... and that's reciting it everyday. Even now sometimes I mess up. I'm a poor cultivator, not sincere enough.

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know the difference between the two Sanskrit version posted at the beginning of the thread? I'm trying to find a good Sanskrit version.

Thank you,

Hello Again,

Is there anyone on this forum that I could PM for details about using the Surangama Dharani? I just recently started reciting it daily, with some pretty interesting results and am hoping to get some feedback. Thank you.

Best Wishes,
Andrew
