Assistance identifying Chinese website

Postby Lotus415 » Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:53 am

I obtained a card at a Buddhist vegetarian store, entirely in Chinese with only a website link on the back to look up. The website is also all in Chinese. I am curious if anyone can assist in identifying this group and the images on the card, some of which I have never seen before. A picture of the card on their website is here:

Thank you for your time!

"Complete bodhi" is the name of it. Just a number of cards with mantras / dharanis and some basic practices / recitations. That's it.

Thanks so much for the quick response! The way the card was printed, I was sort of under the impression it is to be hung over a doorway, (or, I suppose anywhere for that matter). I was just curious if there were any specifications or further information in the Chinese description that would be worth noting.
I also wanted to be certain this was not some "new" group with new mantras.

The scorpion image was quite different for me to see, for example.

You probably would have been better off posting in the Tibetan section coz, except for the second from the left and the right, the rest are Tibetan.

Basically they are all protective and long life practices. I think the second one from the right (Chinese) may be the Sitatapatra dharani.

The figure on the left is Dorje Gotrab. Then there are two Garuda practices (normally accsociated with protection from disease). I don't know what the next two are. Then there is a lung ta (wind horse) banner for long life/energy. The scorpions trap and hold demonic forces of plagues and infections that may try to harm you.

Thank you, Greg, for your kind insight. With permission I will post on the Tibetan forum.
