What mantras or songs do you use as part of your practice?

Postby do_not_zzz » Sun Sep 23, 2012 6:32 pm

Just curious as to what songs or mantras everyone here at DW use as part of their daily practice. I tend to use Green Tara quite often.

Anyone else willing to share?

I use Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche's 'Sky Dancing" cd and ChNN's Song of Vajra.

I was taught not to say what one's practice is to people outside of one's mandala.

That said, Songs?
Well, the Seven Line Prayer of Guru Rinpoche could be called a "song."

I use Om ya ha hum
from the above
info which I am allowed to share with my favourite goat . . .
No spooks in yinyana :spy:

Tara practice (the way I was taught and practice) is quite time consuming.
Guru rinpoche is very strengthening, semi wrathful, worth learning the mantra. :smile:

At the moment using Cundi as a mind stilling before more internal practice . . .

Basically I will praise any passing deity.
While back did a Hindu practice devoted to Ganesha
which I found efficacious . . .

(1) Recitation of Amitabha's name (nienfo) "Namo Amitābhāya Tathāgathāya"; and (2) the Casket Seal Dharani.

Before eating, drinking or boiling water, I use some other mantra and Buddha's names.
Namas triya-dhvikānāṃ sarva tathāgatānām!
