Namaste,
my obeisances to all,
--------------------------
I would like to propose to everyone a day (Sunday maybe)
to chant the Shurangama Mantra, together, as much as we
can, for the benefit of all the sentient beings on earth.
Any date..? What about Sunday 7th of July?
Together we can make the diference.
At least 1 mantra (10 minutes). I'll try at least 7.
Just say "I'm in"

Yours Gratefully
John

Sorry, I was out for the weekend, with no PC.

Since we all have a different time zones,
I suggest that we chant soon in the morning,
like that, we can make a chain of mantras
during all the day.
Then, at the end of the session, we can offer
the merits to mother earth and all its inhabitants.
Good things can happen if we gather enough
people. Spread the idea please! Sunday the 7th. :smile:

Namaste,
John

"The very best is for those who want to recite the Shurangama Mantra to do it for the sake of the entire world; transfer all the merit to the whole world. There isn't anything more important in Buddhism than the Shurangama Mantra."

I can't seem to find a copy of this mantra online so that I may copy it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if this helps, but here is a Sanskrit version. You could probably watch and listen and chant along with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3tEEgf_Ruc
