Maha Karuna Dharani correct text, pronunciation

Postby rory » Sun Oct 20, 2013 7:22 am

I'm now thoroughly confused as I'd been listening to Imee Ooi and learning the text
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-gWBj21 ... ZC&index=2

but now I see texts that are different and of course pronunciation as here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txfDIt-b ... izVc2CLUZC

which is correct or would someone kindly direct me to a good video for learning if possible.

brahma-vesa-dhara padma-kula-samayan hum hum

heart mantra: Om amogha vijaya hum phat

This thread might help you out, it's got answers to just about every question you ask:
viewtopic.php?f=39&t=8781&view=unread

Just to answer real quick about the Imee Ooi version: it's actually the "Ekadashamukha Dharani" (The Dharani of 11-faced Avalokitesvara).
The version we do at the Vietnamese temple is very similar to the one at the end of that thread from devoid, with some slight stylistic differences.

I appreciate the helpful links greatly Pork Chop but there is still a confusion, which of the two texts is the correct Sanskrit for the Great Compassion Dharani as below is the Imee Oooi recitation

Others have this version:

Namo Ratna Trayaya, Namo Arya, Valokite, Svaraya, Svaha,
Om Sidhyantu, Mantra, Padaya, Svaha.

Now I'm confused. ( I know the Ekadasa Mukhi Dharani and that's not the recording I posted)

Sorry, I should've watched your video to see what you actually posted, I just saw Imee Ooi and assumed it was the 11 faced version.

Wiki refers to the first one in your last post as "Sanskrit Version" and sources it to:
Nīlakantha Dhāranī from STP (5.1290-6.1304) by Chih-t'ung (worked 627-649), Ming edition of the Chinese Tripitaka. (Lokesh Chandra, Sanskrit Texts from the Imperial Palace at Peking [STP] Parts 1-22, New Delhi 1968-1977, International Academy of Indian Culture)
They discuss the differences of this version here in this document from Lokesh Chandra:
http://web.archive.org/web/200703160034 ... _01_01.pdf
Basically boils down to a difference between Chih-t'ung and Amoghavajra.

I misspoke before, the one I recognize is the 2nd one in your last post; ie the Amoghavajra one.
