Mañjuśrī Sādhana

Postby Huifeng » Sat May 11, 2013 3:24 am

Hi all,

I'm looking for some good Mañjuśrī Sādhanas in English,
though having Sanskrit and / or Tibetan along would be nice.
Links, docs, PDFs or whatever, all appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

(I know I could have posted this in the general Mahāyāna fora,
but thought it much more likely for practitioners to be from
one or other of the Tibetan traditions.)

One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Note that, in the higher tantras, there is talk of a self and an I, even though in the lower teachings the absence of self and the absence of I is what is always proclaimed. - Tony Duff
If we have to have a soul, it might as well be vidya, it is after all, permanent, unconditioned, a knower, stainless, and free from the three realms. But If we don't have to have one, vidya still has these characteristics. It is our essenceless essence. - a certain Gemini
To educate the educated is notoriously difficult. - Jacques Barzun

Haven't looked at the Manjusrinamasamgiti for many years now...
