Tashi delek,

Bön "Shamans" are chanting the Bön Mantra of Compassion, while they do prostrations.

Tashi delek,

The Matri Mantra, a Mantra of Compassion. We can compare it with the Om Ma Ni Pe Me Hum Chenrezig Mantra of Compassion.

===================

The 8-syllable mantra Om’ ma tri mu ye sa le ’du’ of the Bön religion and 4 auspicious symbols in a row, consisting of victory banner, 5-pointed star, conch, and triple gems . The pigment and wear characteristics of the inscription and symbols indicate that they were executed in the same general time frame. The presence of the octosyllabic mantra, which does not occur in Old Tibetan texts, suggests that these ochre applications postdate 950 or 1000 CE.


The 8-syllable Ma-tri mantra has been a mainstay of the Bön religion for upwards of a millennium. In practical terms, it is the counterpart of the Buddhist mani mantra, uttered universally by adherents.

The ma-tri mantra inscription indicates a religious presence in the eastern Changthang either synonymous with today’s Bön or belonging to a formative regional tradition closely allied to it.

In addition to the 4 figures noted above, there are a number of other auspicious symbols on the same rock panel.

In total, they can be tallied as follows:

- 1 victory banner
- 2 vases
- 3 endless knots
- 2 five-pointed stars
- 1 triple gems
- 1 fish
- 1 pair of fish
- 1 parasol.

The triple gems and 5-pointed star motifs are not part of the 8 auspicious symbols. They appear to reflect a distinctly Bön conception of what constitutes the ideal symbolic ensemble.

Worth noting here is that in the Bön religion a star signifies an object made of meteoric metal.

Question:
Is reciting OM MA TRI MU YE SA LE DU of benefit for the dying person?
( OM MA TRI MU YE SA LE DU is the "same" as OM MA NI PE ME HUNG used in Vajrayana, both are Mantras of Compassion)

Lopon La:
Yes, that is a good thing to do, but it is not sure whether it will help, or not.

If there is no trust or believe on the other side, it does not help anything, it is like the light from the shining sun that does not go inside the cave facing north.

Anyway, whatever you do is beneficial for yourself. For your side it is of real benefit. Whether it reaches the other side and does help there, is not sure.

Tashi delek,

The Bön Mantra of Compassion, can be compared to the Dorje Thekpa Mantra of Compassion, OM MA NI PE ME HUNG
