Simhamukha mantra meaning

Postby Konchog1 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 11:33 am

Unlike many other mantras, it seems Simhamukha's isn't composed of words but sounds. Is this true? Why? What do the sounds mean? Thanks.
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
