Re: Reciting Sitatapatra Name Mantra

In the dream, I was reciting Buddha Amitabha's name but this recitation wasn't helping the situation very much. That is when I switched to reciting the name mantra of Sitatapatra.

Reciting Sitatapatra Name Mantra

Recently, I was in a dream with some difficult obstacles. I started reciting the Sitatapatra name mantra while in the dream "Om Namo Sitatapatra Devi" and the obstacles began to clear and disperse. I wanted to ask if this mantra needs permission to recite.
