Seed Syllable Of Chandraprabha Bodhisattva and their Dharani

Postby vinodh » Thu Apr 30, 2009 7:23 am

Hi,

I am re-posting what I had posted in another forum. Hope somebody could help me around here :)

What is the Seed Syllable of Chandraprabha Bodhisattva ?

http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/nikko-gakko.shtml

The above link shows the Siddham Character 'ca' but transcribes in as 'sha'.

Also,

http://www.siddham.org/yuan_english/man ... antra.html

Siddham.org has Dharanis (apparently back translated from chinese) for Suryaprabha and Chandraprabha ? Is there a proper sanskrit version of those dharanis ?

Suryaprabha

namo buddhā kuṇami
namo dharma mahati
namo saṁgha tayāṇi
tira bhūbi satvadaṁ
nama dabha svāhā
namo rāgaye sarva satabaṇiddha rāṣaṁrā svāhā

Candraprabha

namo saṁdheti
tusūṭha
āmiti
ūtūṭha
saṁkaiṭha
palautiyemijaṭha
ūtūṭha
kaulātaiṭha
kaimoṭha svāhā

Neither a person nor the aggregates, the Buddha, is knowledge free from [evil] outflows
Clearly perceiving [him] to be eternally serene, I go for refuge [in him]

:thanks:

The Mantra is starting with NSB, Supposedly it must be Esoteric.

What about the Dharanis for Candraprabha & Suryaprabha?

Are the Dharanis quoted at siddham.org correct ?

Very Glad to see you at Dharmawheel after a long hiatus from the other forum :woohoo:

Live in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.
