Hey team I was hoping some of you might have some suggestions for Dharani sutras for averting evil spirits, purification of bad karma, gaining wealth, etc. Much appreciated in advance...

Here is a Garchen Rinpoche recording of the Ushnisha Vijaya Dharani (Namgyalma Long mantra):
"Please call me by my true names so I can wake up; so the door of my heart can be left open: the door of compassion." -Thich Nhat Hanh

"Ask: what's needed of you" -Akong Rinpoche
