Are you aware that this is the specific Dzogchen forum within Tibetan Buddhism and that what you are posting is not common to their practice as compared to the East Asian Mahayana Tradition?
Is what you're posting anything connected with the world of Dzogchen teaching & practice?
The Shurangama Sutra and Mantra is also connected to Dzogchen, I am pretty sure
You are aware that in Tibetan Buddhism, they do not simply recite mantras unless with a teacher's instruction or oral transmission in most cases other than the commonly allowable ones?
Good! Next Sunday they can all chant the Shurangama Mantra with the support of their teacher
Besides, you've already posted the event in the Mahayana forum, why a duplicate here?
Because, since I am not doing this for me, but for the welfare of everyone, I thought I could find more attendees here..

If 50 or 100 sadhakas gather to chant the Shurangama mantra next Sunday,
the results can be amazing: peace, enlightment can emerge from that.
Forget about being special or esoteric, Buddhism is about ending suffering,
so, I am just asking for 10 minutes from "you" at least.
Anyway, I will be chanting all the morning, for you too.
