Repaying Parents Kindness Mantra

Postby Annicca » Fri Jul 22, 2011 3:07 pm

Hello!

Does anybody know the Sanskrit / Pali version of the mantra from the Ullambana Sutra ? The Repaying parents' kindness mantra which is :

南無密利多多婆曳娑訶 (in Chinese)
(Na mwo mi li dwo dwo pe ye swo he)

But does anyone know the same mantra in Sanskrit or Pali?

Tks.

That wouldbe :

Not sure, what mi li dwo dwo pe ye back-transliterates to Sanskrit though :thinking:

Oh, thank you very much!
I am still trying to find a clue for this.
I am helping a friend of mine to translate this sutra and mantra into Spanish. So if you have any news pls let me know.

Ah, perfect timing for me to come across this thread! In three days (31 August 2012) would be the 15th day of the 7th lunar month - the day of practice as taught in the Ullambana Sutra.

According to a blogpost (http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_608185ad0102dshw.html) by this Buddhist whom I understand to be very knowledgeable in Buddhism, the text string "mi li dwo dwo pe ye" in Sanskrit should be "amṛtod-bhave".

You can find "amṛtod-bhave" in the mantra commonly known to Chinese Buddhists as 往生咒:
Namo amitābhāya tathāgatāya. Tadyathā, om, amṛtod-bhave, amṛta siddhaṃ bhave, amṛta vi-krānte, amṛta vi-krānta, gamini gagana, kīrti-kare svāhā.

You can also find "amṛtod-bhave" in the dharani 無量壽如來根本陀羅尼:
Namo ratna-trayāya. Nama ārya amitābhāya tathāgatāya arhate samyak-saṃbuddhāya. Tadyathā, om, amṛte, amṛtod-bhave, amṛta-saṃbhave, amṛta-garbhe, amṛta-siddhe, amṛta-teje, amṛta vi-krānte, amṛta vi-krānta gamini, amṛta gagana kīrti-kare, amṛta dundubhi-svare, sarva-artha sādhane, sarva karma-kleśa kṣayaṃ-kare svāhā.
