Nīlakaṇṭha Dhāranī & Uṣṇīṣa Dhāraṇī

Postby Jainarayan » Tue Aug 06, 2013 5:41 pm

I use Sanskrit transliterated copies and recite them occasionally. I read that they are very powerful and beneficial. Does anyone recite or chant them, and if so how often?

Ushinisha Vijaya? In Tibetan, "Namgyalma?"

Or Ushnisha Sitapatatra? Or....Ushnisha Vimale?

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Vijaya... I forgot to specify.

Ushnisha Vijaya daily, for me...along with Vajravidarana dharani. Don't know Nilakantha, as it's not something my teachers have emphasized.
