Baseball caps in Blue, Red or Maroon, with all these mantras on them:

It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.

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.
