Making connection with Sitatapatra

Post by cjdevries »

How does one make a positive connection with the White Parasol Deity; Sitatapatra other than reciting her mantra? Prostrations to her, offerings??

You may find an initiation of sitatapatra.

Trying to know more about her is already a kind of puja. Loving her who is one with your own nature. Draw, paint, dance in her honour. Think of her and feel your connection with her.

Sitatapatra mantra comes from Surangama Sutra, if i remember well. So if you want to make positive connection you should look there. Is a Mahayana sutra intended for monks, i believe.

Also try to receive the lung/oral transmission for Her dok-pa (reversal) practice. This is widely disseminated through all four schools. It is very, very effective.

Further, Just pray to Her in your own words and from your heart. We don't always need to recite someone else's prayers.

Good luck & best wishes.
