Splendor of an Autumn Moon?

Post by Tenma » Sun Oct 22, 2017 1:04 am

Before I continue on, do all the prayers and mantras in Tsongkhapa's book require empowerment? I'm trying to get 2 prayers from it, but can't find a free source.

I don't recall there being any mantras. It's a matter of the deity, for example there's not much point in someone who doesn't have a highest yoga tantra chanting something like the praise to Inner Kalarupa (Praise of the Protector Dharmaraja), but most others like the praises of Buddha or Praise to Amitayus could very much be recited by anyone.

In that case, that's good because I'm trying to find the prayer to Saraswati that has some mantra ending at the end of it and the Vajra Saraswati, Light of Wisdom prayer with perhaps its mantra if it has one.

Manjushri is the hallowed Dharma, the ruler of the Dharma, the shining one, the superb illuminator of the world;
He is the powerful lord of Dharma, the king of the Dharma, the one who shows the most excellent pathway of mind. Manjushri-namasamgiti
