"When the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara." "Was Coursing in the Deep Prajna Paramita." "He Perceived That All Five Skandhas Are Empty." "Thus He Overcame All Ills and Suffering." "Oh, Sariputra, Form Does not Differ From Emptiness, And Emptiness Does Not Differ From Form. Form itself is Emptiness and Emptiness itself is Form; The Same is True For Feelings, Perceptions, Volitions and Consciousness." "Sariputra, the Characteristics of Emptiness of All Dharmas Are Non-Arising, Non-Ceasing, Non-Defiled, Non-Pure, Non-Increasing, Non-Decreasing." "Therefore, in Emptiness There Are No Forms,  No Feelings, Perceptions, Volitions or Consciousness." "No Eye, Ear, Nose, Tongue, Body or Mind; No Form, Sound, Smell, Taste, Touch or Mind Object; No Realm of the Eye, Until We Come to No realm of Consciousness." "No ignorance and Also No Ending of Ignorance,  Until We Come to No Old Age and Death and  No Ending of Old Age and Death." "Also, There is No Truth of Suffering, Of the Cause of Suffering, Of the Cessation of Suffering, Nor of the Path." "There is No Wisdom, and There is No Attainment Whatsoever." "Because There is Nothing to Be Attained, The Bodhisattva Relying On Prajna Paramita Has No Obstruction in His Mind." "Because There is No Obstruction, He Has no Fear,"  "And He passes Far Beyond Confused Imagination." "And Reaches Ultimate Nirvana." "The Buddhisattvas of the Past, Present and Future, By Relying on Prajna Paramita Have Attained Supreme Enlightenment." "Therefore, the Prajna Paramita is the Great Mantra, The Mantra of Illumination, the Supreme Spell, Which Can Truly Protect One From All Suffering Without Fail." "Therefore He Uttered the Mantra of Prajnaparmita, Saying: "Gatte, Gatte, Paragatte, Parasamgatte, Bodhi Svaha"."

From a tear drop of Avalokitesvara
You came to us -
Beautiful, tranquil, loving and kind,
Oh Tara,
In you I seek refuge.

We hide behind our masks

Of indifference or toughness,
We try hard to do the things
That gives us comfort;
We try to numb the pain
And to delay the time of death,
And yet some of us indulge
To hasten our own deaths.
We pretend that we can cope
When we are falling apart;
We avoid eye contact with each other
In fear of revealing our hearts.
Oh Tara,
In you I seek refuge.
We hide behind a façade of busyness;
Artists filling their canvases with paint,
Indignant activists fighting for change,
Designers showing off their latest creations
For those who live for trends,
Humanitarians desperately helping the desperate,
Not wasting a moment in just staying still;
Cruel dictators ordering soldiers to kill
Anyone that they regard as enemies;
Politicians prioritising popularity
Above their true conscience;
Confused and lost,
Some of us wander around
Hearing voices in our heads,
Some of us seek safety in our
Little worlds of self indulgence;
Collecting friends, admirers
Or inanimate objects.
Oh Tara,
In you I seek refuge.
How long do we have be like this?
How many lifetimes do we have to live
Before we find solace from this ocean of suffering?
Oh Tara,
In your loving smile
I seek refuge.

Praise to Manjushri Bodhisattva:

"Wonderfully Auspicious" is replete with great kindness.
Mother of enlightened ones throughout the three periods of time, his wisdom is beyond measure.
His left hand brandishes a sharp sword that severs all afflictions;
And his right hand holds the blue lotus which reflects the mark of his virtue.
A peacock and lion-spirit act as his carriage,
Poisonous dragons and fierce beasts are subdued and become pure and cool.
The pure youth with the five topknots, this is a provisional manifestation.
Originally, he is the happy treasury of the Thus Come One.

Homage to Manjushri Bodhisattva of Great Wisdom, who dwells in the golden world of Pure Cool Mountain.

Homage to Wonderful Auspicious Bodhisattva.

Manjushri Bodhisattva's name is explained as "Wonderful Virtue" or "Wonderfully Auspicious." He is foremost in wisdom and holds the highest rank among the Bodhisattvas.

When Manjushri Bodhisattva was born, ten auspicious signs manifested and they represent the Ten Paramitas: giving, morality, patience, vigor, concentration, wisdom, skill in means, vows, determination, and knowledge.

Additional Information:

Relationship to the Great Compassion Mantra -

It is generally believed that this dhāraṇī has no direct relationship with the The Great Compassion Mantra in Mahayana Buddhism. However, it is often falsely named as Tibetan Great Compassion Mantra (藏传大悲咒) or The Great Compassion Mantra in Sanskrit (梵音大悲咒) in Chinese-speaking regions.

Some people believe that this dhāraṇī is told by the Eleven-Faced Avalokitesvara, an esoteric bodhisattva in Tibetan Buddhism, and that it is the equivalent Tibetan version of The Great Compassion Mantra in Mahayana Buddhism. This is why it is often being referred to as Tibetan Great Compassion Mantra. However, this opinion is not accepted by most Mahayana Buddhists.


There was an old man who lived in a hut. Every morning he went to the street for alms. He never complained about his situations or his struggles. He took what was given without question. One day when the old man returning from his routine saw that the hut was taken by somebody else. Somebody else was eating his food and money he had little saved. Old man with compassion went inside the hut. The young beggar asked "who are you?" wrapping his hands around the food he found, old man replied I am you but in a different body. Old man took his robes and gave it to as well. Stranger instead of looking upon this as compassion took him as a meagerly fool. The young stranger snatched the clothes of his hands and stripped the old man from head to toe and took every bit of things he had left. Is that everything you have? he asked. Old man replied humbly "when you have everything you have nothing, and when you truly have nothing left you have everything. The boy was confused. The old man smiled and said, ignorant child you are trapped in an illusion that you cant see, feel or touch and bounded by invisible chains. Unless we realize who we truly are it wont matter what you own. He added even if you become richest of riches we will always be bounded by suffering. The young beggar froze and felt that he understood a little what old man was saying. Old man chanted "Gate Gate ParaGate ParaSamGate Bodhi Svaha.". "No treasure can compare to it, no money can buy it, no wealth can occupy it, no pleasure can satisfy it, no eyes can find it, no ears can hear it, no tongue can taste it, no hands can feel it, no mind can imagine it. Oh dear child what is this treasure? old man asked. Find thisfor we are born only to realize this. Young man's illusory world shattered, face bright and awakened. Old man bowed to him, said know thy self and vanished.
