Hayagriva mantra

Postby devilyoudont » Mon Aug 27, 2012 8:57 pm

Is there a Hayagriva mantra that does not require empowerment? I know he's an esoteric deity, but I'm asking on the off chance there is such a thing. There's one mantra listed here: http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/k ... html#batou on the right, but I know nothing about it and can't make out its Sanskrit form, if any.

I don't think so.
Also don't recognize that mantra, from the Japanese....


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

Thanks.
