I screwed-up the link, but anyway the title of the bi-lingual book is cosmic-magic-syllables-save-the-world

Korean version of Shurangama dharani

monk version(formal version): http://olpost.com/v/2084034
nun(more fluid, casual): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irCo_f29eBc

in Korea, Shurangama matra is mainly chanted by Zen monks, especially a temple called haeinsa(海印寺 )if a monk doesn't recite the mantra 108times, he can not be permitted to particapate in retreats of temple's zen hall

One must study

1, the Shurangama Sutra
2. the Shurangama Mantra
3. the 50 Demonic states of Meditation
4. the Shurangama Samadi Sutra

after one has fully studied and understands ,
one is ready to start the cultivation of this Dharma.

How long did it take people to memorize this dharani?
I loved reciting it with the Sangha every morning during my stay at CTTB but since I'm not Chinese the syllables were not so easy for me to replicate.

Here is an audio version, with a red arrow marking line by line the transliterated Sanskrit:

http://archive.org/details/Shurangama

The smallest download is around 80mb.

About two years for me... and that's reciting it everyday. Even now sometimes I mess up. I'm a poor cultivator, not sincere enough.

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know the difference between the two Sanskrit version posted at the beginning of the thread? I'm trying to find a good Sanskrit version.

Thank you,

Andrew

Hello Again,

Is there anyone on this forum that I could PM for details about using the Surangama Dharani? I just recently started reciting it daily, with some pretty interesting results and am hoping to get some feedback. Thank you.

Best Wishes,
Andrew

This short introduction to the mantra by Master Hua is probably somewhere else in one of the Shurangama threads at DW, but just in case it is not, here it is:

Does anyone know where to find a copy of "Cosmic Magic Syllables Save the World"? It doesn't seem to be available on the BTTS site.

Also, as far as I know transmission is not needed to use the mantra, but given the power and efficacy the mantra is said to have, wouldn't it be best to have a teacher to guide one through the related practice? Reciting a mantra that keeps demons at bay and the world safe seems like a huge responsibility, much more than one should do on their own. I've backed off my own practice for the time being to be cautious about this. Thoughts?


Best,
Andrew

Hi Inge,

Maybe it's just my computer, but when I try to order it I get an error saying there are no shipping methods available for the order. I've ordered from them before, so I figured it's the book that is unavailable.

Strange. I ordered it without problems, but that was years ago.

Hi all,

I'm looking for audio recordings of this dharani. I've heard how it's pronounced by contemporary Chinese-language practitioners; I'd like to know also, if possible, how it may sound in Vietnamese, Korean, or even Sino-Japanese.

Many thanks!
