OM PADMO USHNÎSHA VIMALE HÛM PHAT

OM PADMO USHNÎSHA VIMALE HÛM PHAT

It is taught in the Sûtra of Essence of the Earth’s Ten Wheels
That any individual who sees, hears, remembers, or touches
This king of supreme dhâranîs with twelve syllables,
Will purify the karmas of immediate retribution and block the doors to unfortunate transmigrations.

  1. Hi,

    I’m a bit confused about this mantra.
    Should there be another vowel in the word USH ^ NÎSHA ?
    I think it should be U Sh^ Ni Sha, not U Shni Sha
    For it to be 12 syllables, USHNÎSHA has to be 4 syllables long, doesn’t it?
    If I’m right, what vowel goes there?

    Is this mantra associated with a deity?
    If yes, which one?

    Is there a similar mantra with only 10 syllables?
    OM PADMONÎSHA VIMALE HÛM PHAT
    Sounds like: Om Pad Mosh Knee Sah Boo Ma Lee Hung Phat

    Also, It has a benefit, almost the same, as your mantra does.
    Only it was worded a bit different.
    “Anyone who sees, hears, speaks, or touches this mantra will be reborn as a human.”

    This very similar 10 syllable mantra, is from my class notes, from back in 1986.
    I’ve been saying it for years.
    Now I’m concerned it’s wrong.

    Thanks so very much for posting this!
    It’s so wonderfully helpful.

    Wishing you the joy of the day,

  3. Janis, you are correct. The mantra only has 10 syllables, as it says: “yi ge bcu pa.” Also, it is “padma Ushnisha,” the a in padma and the U in Ushnisha join to form a long o. The Tibetan script should NOT show the vowel “u” because it already has the “o” sign over the “dm.” The mantra is associated with Ushinisha-Vijaya, the Victorious Crown goddess, and her Tibetan name is Namgyalma.
