Regarding the mantras, not the cap, in ChNN's Song of the Vajra, this mantra appears to be given as AH AAH HA SHA SA MA (with HA before SHA rather than at the end). Is there a particular significance to that?

Just curious.

The Six syllables again )

1) ? The first letter is absent in Ranjana\Lantsa script. It looks like stylisation of tibetan ' .
2) long A
3) maybe long HA
4) maybe long श ( śa ) (not ष ṣa) like in शासन (śAsana) (instruction, rule) or शास्तृ (teacher).
5) maybe long SA
6) maybe long MA

The letters are slightly of non-common character.

at someone on this forum I saw अआहसम
