Usnisa Vijaya Heart Mantra

Postby shentongpa » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:36 am

:namaste:
Does anyone have reliable informations about the Heart Mantra of the Uṣṇīṣa Vijaya Dhāraṇī Sūtra (oṃ amṛta-tejavati svāhā) ? Does someone practice it ? If yes, what is your experience with it ?
Thanks.


As you see below, it is used in Shingon School :

In addition to the long dhāraṇī, there is the much shorter Uṣṇīṣa Vijaya heart-mantra:

oṃ amṛta-tejavati svāhā

The Heart Mantra :

oṁ amṛta tejovati svāhā ||

Use full version, this is true gem.

Many people peach Lotus Sutra (Myoho regne kyo) or Pure land (namo amitofo) but Usnisa mantra is the same grade as Lotus sutra.

The dharani kicks ass, especially in combination with Nampar Jompoa dharani and mantra.

Very useful for overcoming obstacles associated with brain problems: strokes, migraines, etc...

Thanks for your advices. I will recite the complete dharani then. I found a really complete translation here : http://www.dharanipitaka.net/2011/2008/ ... -rakta.pdf
