Mañjuśrī Sādhana

Postby Huifeng » Sat May 11, 2013 3:24 am

Hi all,

I'm looking for some good Mañjuśrī Sādhanas in English,
though having Sanskrit and / or Tibetan along would be nice.
Links, docs, PDFs or whatever, all appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

(I know I could have posted this in the general Mahāyāna fora,
but thought it much more likely for practitioners to be from
one or other of the Tibetan traditions.)

Revealing one essence: this means the inherently pure, complete, luminous essence, which is pure of its own nature. -- Fa-tsang

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

Hello, Huifeng,
I don't know if it's any use to you but there's a Speech Blessing mantra on p10 of http://www.padma.org.au/members-resouce-documents/new-member-booklet.pdf

Here's another one, from Thubten Chodron, containing sadhana, commentary and retreat teachings audio:

ཨོཾ་མ་ཧཱ་ཤུནྱ་ཏཱ་ཛྙཱ་ན་བཛྲ་སྭཱ་བྷཱ་བ་ཨཱཏྨ་ཀོ་྅ཧཾ༔

The thousands of lines of the Prajnaparamita can be summed up in the following two sentences:
1) One should become a Bodhisattva (or, Buddha-to-be), i.e. one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all beings.
2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a ‘being’, or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment.
To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect.

The last is a particularly nice file. :smile:

Haven't looked at the Manjusrinamasamgiti for many years now...
