Amoghasiddhi Mantra?

Post by Tenma » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:51 am

Anyone know the mantra or dharani of Amoghasiddhi? I am trying to tame my jealousy and envy among school rivals, but Akshobhya is the closest for quelling hatred.

Try Lojong and Bodhicitta.

Without Bodhicitta, mantras are useless anyways.

I've tried. Unfortunately, this has proven even more difficult than I thought and so far, I've had to depend on mantras to cope with it before beginning bodhicitta in order to make it more "effective." Akshobhya for anger has been helpful, but as recommended, I am trying to find Amoghasiddhi for jealousy(frankly, practicing tonglen hasn't been as strong as it was in the beginning, so yeah)

I am aware. However, for me, bodhicitta seems to come up only if I am about to recite mantras or prayers. I'm afraid I'm still working on keeping it constant.

Good you try to do sth about it, but for example mani or tara mantra are enough. Tara saves us from 8 fears and also ourselves. But as was said above, doing lojong would be best. It goes to do root. Mantras do help but when just recited there is not much benefit. However doing it with bodhicitta and love and compassion. Then it is powerful. Why? Because compassion and love are the root. Take care of it and all good qualities will appear. So do lojong. It can be done without any transmission + there are many good books.

There is this video . I haven't seen it yet but Alan is great.
A boat delivers you to the other riverbank.
A needle stitches up your clothes.
A horse takes you where you want to go.
Bodhicitta will bring you to Buddhahood.

You can find the mantra here: http://www.visiblemantra.org/amoghasiddhi.html
I am aware of that website. However, could you guide me to a dharani or sutra? I'm afraid I don't quite have full trust over the website.

In any case empowerment and/or lung is required as it is tantra, not sutra.

Amoghasiddhi is vajrayana so you’d need an empowerment.

Oh. well that's a pity. Like how Amitabha's Mahayana mantra is "Namo Amitabha", can the same be done with "Namo Amoghasiddhi"? Or no and I should just stick to a Green Tara practice?

There is a tradition of reciting the Akshobhya dharani. I don't know where the dharani appears but Akshobhya does appear in sutra. Most people who are attracted to the practice will also report that they find that their anger and hatred gets reduced or eliminated.
Namo bhagavate Akṣhobhāya, tathāgatāyārhate
saṃyaksaṃbuddhyāya. Tadyathā:
Om kamkani kamkani, rochani rochani.
Trotani trotani. Trasani trasani. Pratihana pratihana.
Sarva karma param para nime
Sarva sattva nancha svaha.
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Yes, I am aware of that. I have been experiencing those effects lately, but it still hasn't quite covered my envy entirely and it keeps growing, thus causing the anger to rise as well. My point is trying to destroy the source(or at least transform it) instead of constantly trying to keep up with its growth and destroying only the effects. That's why I was seeking the Amoghasiddhi practice. With the source being dealt with, then the anger and pride(this, I have tamed in a way, but am in the middle of processing) will cease.

Reciting names of Buddhas is a sutra practice. "Namo Amoghasiddhi" should be fine....

What about Ksitigarbha who is of the Karma family? Or he is only reserved for the dead and not other things like envy?

Try getting your total body magnesium tested.I regular blood work up only measures
serum levels and that is only 1% of you total magnesium levels in your body.
You can get that test from this site.https://requestatest.com/
Stress depletes mag. so most of us are deficient.
You should really look up the symptoms of magnesium deficiency .
Of coarse check with your parents before adding any supplements to your diet.
