Mantras for Multiplying Merit

Postby Devotee » Tue Feb 02, 2010 5:49 pm

(I do not know where to post this... sorry...)

Can anyone please share and explain the mantras Tibetan Buddhists recite to multiply the merits of other activities?

Are these Sutric, or revealed through the masters of Vajrayana?

Thank you!

To wholeheartedly give all one's merits and their potential effects to other beings is the best way to multiply them.

Well, if that's the case, how come these mantras still exist or are needed? It would be nice to know the roots of many practices done...

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25
