Manjushri Namasanghiti

Chanting the Names of Manjushri (Manjushri Namasanghiti) is one of the most revered tantric texts in Tibetan Buddhism.

The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

And yet, the Namasanghiti contains all of the Buddha’s teachings: a comprehensive and condensed summary of everything Buddha taught. Shakyamuni Buddha says the Namasanghiti is “the chief clarification of words” and the “non-dual reality” which all sentient beings must study and recite. In the monastery, this text is recited daily to invoke the wisdom of Manjushri for their day’s meditations, contemplations and Dharma studies.

There are a number of translations currently available online for free download, which I present to you here strictly for educational purposes. May you benefit from forging this connection with the Bodhisattva Manjushri.

圣妙吉祥真实名经

《圣妙吉祥真实名经》是藏密行者最广泛持诵的经典之一。

虽文殊菩萨在多世以前已证得佛位,但他依然与佛陀释迦牟尼携手弘扬圣教。据《华严经》,文殊菩萨实为龙尊王佛菩萨,早在无量劫前的另一世界修得佛果。然而,在释迦牟尼佛时代,他化现成文殊菩萨,也成了佛陀释加牟尼的弟子。的确,圣教中许多教法的出现正是因为文殊菩萨向佛陀释迦牟尼提出疑问。

文殊菩萨汇集智慧和知识于一身。这部持诵文殊菩萨名号及功德的《圣妙吉祥真实名经》象征佛陀释迦牟尼一切教法之顶峰。学者将它与“时轮金刚续”归类成不二怛特罗(无二续)。

佛陀释迦牟尼为他的弟子——金刚手菩萨及其忿怒眷属详述《圣妙吉祥真实名经》,一心引导他们成佛。《圣妙吉祥真实名经》的精髓说明文殊菩萨具遍知力。此经典精短,内含约160偈,还有其他经典如《华严经》、《般若经》,以及如《文殊师利根本仪轨经》的浩瀚密续经典的小部分。

《圣妙吉祥真实名经》虽短,但它蕴含佛陀的一切教法,是佛陀教法的广、略心要。佛陀说此经殊胜至极,是解惑之首,也说明实相不二,乃众生必读、必诵。寺院的僧人每日都会持诵此经,祈请文殊菩萨以智慧加持他们每日的禅修、冥思和研读。

网络上有好一些可以免费下载的译本,我在此提供文件,纯粹是为学术用途。愿你从跟文殊菩萨结缘中获益。

    Amazing sacred prayer of Manjushri – A Concert Names of Manjushri consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. Manjushri is a Bodhisattva who represents wisdom. Manjushri is seen as a completely enlightened Buddha with a great number of manifestations and appearances. Depicted with Dorje Shugden in this beautiful thangka paints a thousand words.

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    Thank you, Rinpoche sharing with us such a powerful praise on Lord Manjushri. Rinpoche has said before that there is no way that anyone can reach enlightenment without relying on Lord Manjushri. His blessings for us to gain wisdom and clarity is so important.

    It was also said that Lord Buddha taught a lot of the teachings because of Manjushri’s requests for teachings.

  5. Wai Meng Wan on Dec 9, 2017 at 3:36 am

    Thank you to His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and also the writer’s team for sharing this important text on Manjushri with all of us. I can safely say, if I had not meet His Eminence, I would not have encountered Manjushri let alone Dorje Shugden.

    Rinpoche also mentioned before, without Manjushri enlightenment is not possible at all, As Manjushri is embodiment of wisdom, without wisdom and compassion alone, we cannot traverse the Buddha path completely.

  6. Stella Cheang on Nov 28, 2017 at 12:45 am

    Learning about Manjushri and the many forms of Manjushri is imperative in our lineage. Lord Tsongkhapa, the founder of Gelugpa lineage is the emanation of Lord Manjushri. The unparalleled strength of Manjushri practice lies in the fact that he manifests in all four cycles of Tantra – Kriya, Charya, Yoga and Maha-Anuttarayoga – and he can be approached and reached by practitioners of any level.

    It was because of Manjushri who asked many questions, Buddha Shakyamuni was able to expound many Dharma teachings. It is said that Manjushri actually Buddha Nageshvaraja, one of the 35 Confessional Buddha, who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. He returned as Buddha’s disciple to help expound Dharma.

    “Chanting the Names of Manjushri” or known as “Manjushri Namasanghiti” was expounded by Buddha Shakyamuni for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. This is a short text that can be recited daily to invoke the wisdom of Manjushri for their day’s meditations, contemplations and Dharma studies.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and Pastor David for the sharing.

  7. Kenneth on Nov 22, 2017 at 5:05 am

    I really enjoyed this article. Manjusrinamasangiti was one of the texts that caught my attention earlier in the year, and I want to share a couple of things that I’ve been looking at and listening to a lot in the past year.

    The first is this YouTuibe link to the complete Manjusrinamasangiti read in Sanskrit – hearing this in Sanskrit even without knowing the language, just hearing the spoken sounds is just beautiful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpoel3YiNHg

    The second is the complete scanned Manjusrinamasangiti manuscript written in sanskrit, dated 1025. http://www.dsbcproject.org/gallery/view/9/Mañjuśrīnāmasaṅgīti

    I hope these will bring joy to those who listen and look on it, as it had to me.

  8. Yin ping on Nov 18, 2017 at 12:49 am

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom of all the Buddhas. It is said that he was already enlightened countless aeons ago as Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment in a different world system. During Shakyamuni’s time he appeared himself as one of his eight chief bodhisattva disciples.

    The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. It contains all of the Buddha’s teachings: a comprehensive and condensed summary of everything Buddha taught.

    In the monastery, this text is recited daily invoking Manjushri’s wisdom during meditations, contemplations and Dharma studies.

  9. Valentina Suhendra on Oct 25, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    Dear All

    I would like to share with you the sacred prayer of Manjushri – A Concert Names of Manjushri (’Jam-dpal mtshan-brjod, Skt. Mañjuśrī-namasamgiti), which consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. One version is translated by Alexander Berzin, a scholar, translator, and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, and the other one is from FPMT.

    Valentina

  10. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Apr 7, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the 167 Verses of the “Concert Of Names of Manjushri”. “Chanting the Names of Manjushri (Manjushri Nama Sangiti)”contains all of the Buddha’s teachings: a comprehensive and condensed summary of everything Buddha taught. Indeed, Shakyamuni Buddha says that as “the chief clarification of words” and the “non-dual reality” , it is a litany which all sentient beings must study and recite.

    I have always found this litany of the names of Manjushri a very powerful and stirring prayer to recite.

    Shakyamuni Buddha had taught the Manjushri Nama Sangiti to his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of this Litany is that Bodhisattva Manjushri is the embodiment of all the wisdom and knowledge of all Buddhas.

    Although this text is but a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajna Paramita Sutras -consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, yet it contains all of Buddha’s teachings! So Powerful is this text that monks in the monastery would recite it daily to invoke the wisdom of Manjushri for their day’s meditations, contemplations and Dharma studies!

  11. Fong on Apr 6, 2017 at 4:09 pm

    I wonder if anyone can recite this prayer. Firstly, as it is available here in full, I deem it open and anyone can recite it. Secondly, it is supposed to be a tantra and well, you have to be initiated to be able to recite any tantric text. Moreover, it is not easy to find commentaries of this prayer in the internet.

    So, here I assume that it is alright for those without initiation to recite the prayer but the commentaries are reserved for those initiates. It must be a very blessed prayer to recite then. One for us to received blessings perhaps, by merely reciting it?

    Thank you for this sharing.

  12. Pastor Shin Tan on Jul 6, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    Dear BT Tay,
    Thank you for your interests in Jampel Tsenjod and your suggestion.

    As for which commentary is the best in Gaden Shartse, perhaps you can enquire directly with the monastery and address your concerns as they have listed an email address if you wish to contact or ask for spiritual advice: information@gadenshartse.net

    I see that you have left some comments on some of our articles, I hope these articles have been helpful to you. If you find our work beneficial, please help to support and contribute towards this project: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/tsem-rinpoche-blog

    Zasep Tulku Rinpoche a respected, courage, highly attained Lama and a well known dedicated and devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner . Having a strong guru devotion , courage ,great teaching abilities, he is truly a Great Lama who has uphold the lineage and be of benefit to others. He is admired by many for his courage speaking against the odds and defending about Dorje Shugden practice. He speaks the truth of the practice , the preservation of the Gelug lineage and Tibetan Buddhism. Zasep Rinpoche also acknowledges that the Shugden controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Leadership to deflect attention from their incompetence. Dorje Shugden has been practiced for centuries by many high lamas. He even said that it was Dorje Shugden that has exhorted the Dalai Lama to flee Tibet.
    In his autobiography,… A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada tells us a thousand words his account and experience as a refugee. He was forced to flee his invaded country, on a desperate journey to refugee status in Nepal, travelling through a number of countries and finally, citizenship in Canada. The book gives readers an intimate look into the life of one of the remaining Tibetan born and trained masters. A definite good book to catch hold as its contain all of the elements of a great spiritual bio. He continues to share precious knowledge through an expanding of books, which is available in many countries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    A dog, cat, bird or any animal you bring home is not a pet. You may think of them as so, but they don’t think that way about themselves. To them you are their hope, love, family and safety. If you cannot take care of them, don’t get them in… the first place. Just like any family member when young, they are cute and cuddly, but as they grow, they become adults. You don’t get rid of a family member when they are not cute and cuddly anymore do you? All animals have feelings of pain, sorrow, joy, love, fear and security just like us. Don’t cause them any pain or anxiety. They need us as we need them.

    They are not a commodity, toy, entertainment, punching bag or some fixture to abuse or get rid of when we don’t want them anymore. Think how you would feel if you were them and you were dumped somewhere? Imagine if you are just something to be eliminated when your not cuddly and cute anymore or just ‘get in the way?’ Be kind to animals especially the ones you bring home and cuddle and love when they are babies. You are their world and the only world they have in their restricted lives. Remember we took them from their mothers, families and separated them from their siblings when very young and environments and forced them into our environments. We owe them some loyalty.

    On a visit to the Modisa Wildlife Project near Maun, Botswana, traveller John Hawkins captured this heartwarming footage that shows the incredible bond between a lioness and her rescuer. In the video, Sirga can be seen eagerly pacing back and forth behind a fence as the man, Valentin Gruener, unlocks the gate. Once the gate is opened, the 110-pound lioness jumps onto Gruener—for a cuddly, full-body embrace! Sirga clearly displays her affection for the man, rubbing noses with him during the hug and even laying across his lap on the ground. What an amazing friendship!

    Thank you for the sharing the mystery of the sailing stone. Actually we need to thank the mother earth for creating all the wonders and miracles. Making scientists puzzled in their research and a loss to explain how or why rocks appear to move around by themselves.

    It is very interesting and sound crazy. I never heard of this phenomenon before, but those photos made me google for further information.. I really hope to get here one day just to feel the extraordinary scenery and to witness the incredible phenomenon. Enjoyed the article and the photos.

    Released in 2005, EARTHLINGS premiered at the Artivist Film Festival and won the Best Documentary Feature. It then went on to win the Best Content Award and Best Documentary Film at the Boston International Film Festival and the San Diego Film Festival respectively.

    What is this video that made such an impact on these renowned film recognition boards?

    The 95-minute documentary was inspired by Shaun Monson. He’s a writer, producer and director who had previous shot footage of animal shelters within Los Angeles. He did it to produce a series of public service announcements… however, what he saw had such a profound effect on him that he decided to produce what became known as Earthlings.

    Worldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

    Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

    About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.

    Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.”

    These monks who built the temple has a really good motivation to use the glass bottles as the building material. We are generating a lot of rubbish every day but we have not thought where the rubbish will end up.

    Most of the rubbish we generated goes to the landfill. Some end up in the oceans. Either way, the rubbish has destroyed our environment and lives, including our health.

    These monks show us how to make rubbish into something useful. It is also a good lesson to teach us we have to care more about our environment.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.

    For years, the FBI has filed animal abuse under the label “other” along with a variety of lesser crimes, making cruelty hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. The bureau announced this month that it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category – the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed.

    “It will help get better sentences, sway juries and make for better plea bargains,” said Madeline Bernstein, president and CEO of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles and a former New York prosecutor.

    Jessie Earhart had been saving up for a new car when a chance encounter with an abandoned dog changed her plans completely. The kindhearted girl, just 15-years-old, asked her mom to stop when she discovered a discarded dog running along a road. When the teen approached the severely injured pup, the dog now known as Lilly, immediately ran into the girl’s arms nuzzling her head into her arms in relief.

    An animal control officer took Lilly away to a veterinarian for her facial injuries — believed to have been caused by someone who used an ax to strike her face. Lilly’s medical bills piled up and she faced euthanasia. When the teen found out, she offered up the $400 she had been saving to buy a car to help pay the veterinary expenses and decided to adopt the dog herself.

    The teen has no regrets and admits the right car will be there a year from now, but the dog’s life needed to be saved now. Wait until you see how happy Lilly is today — all thanks to one very incredible teen.

    Please take a look at these beautiful images of animals rearing their young in the wild. Their love, gentleness and care towards the young is so amazing. So touching. Each photo captured the beauty of the unbreakable bond between a parent and their child. If you’re a parent, you’ll surely appreciate this.

    Never hurt animals. Never kill them. Never eat them. Let them be in peace and have happy lives. They have every right to live and without fear just like us. We should always protect their environments also.

    Not eating animals is not necessarily a choice for the religious, but a choice of conscience and caring for the environment. Animal farming is contributing very much to the greenhouse effect destroying our atmosphere. Do not contribute to animals being beaten, tied, slaughtered and killed just for us to taste something ‘good’. Fried blood and cooked flesh are not good because it caused pain. Go visit the slaughterhouse weekly. Important. No matter what others say, we must have some principles and not ‘fail’ in everything using others as an excuse. Always be firm in our convictions. I mean principles that protect others from pain. If we are vegetarian, remain so. If we are considering, then research more on the benefits for ourselves, the environment, our planet, our children and the animals. Be firm in helping others and our planet.

    It seems that humans aren’t the only ones who need forgiveness.
    Bizarre footage has surfaced of a fugitive pig grovelling in front of a temple in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province on Tuesday.
    Pictures and video of the bowing boar, which had escaped from a nearby farm, have spread like wildfire on Chinese social media, sparking a flurry of debates over what the animal was doing, reports Sina.
    Footage shows the animal kneeling on its forelimbs encircled by worshippers, as a Buddhist ceremony takes place inside the temple.
    The saintly swine reportedly stayed put for hours, and only left the scene after a group of monks emerged from inside and chanted a Buddhist scripture towards it.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
