Śūraṅgama Mantra

Shurangama Mantra, Sanskrit: Sitātapatroṣṇīṣa Dhāraṇī

Śūraṅgama Heart Mantra Amulet
Śūraṅgama Heart Mantra Amulet

The Śūraṅgama Lituny (English Translation)

At that time the World-honoured One, from the fleshy crown of His head, sent out a sparkling flood of light rays and, amidst these rays, burst forth a thousand-petaled jewelled lotus.

A transformed Tathāgata sat within this jewelled flower the crown of His head emitting hundreds of glistening light rays in all directions;

Everywhere each light revealed all things as numerous as the myriad grains of sand in the Ganges.

The Vajrapanis, Jewel in hand, lighted up the mountains, appearing everywhere within the vault of

space; the great assembly beheld this with awe.

Unable to hold on to their fears and desires, they sought the Buddha’s pity and aid and whole-

heartedly hearkened unto the radiant Tathāgata atop the now-concealed crown of the Buddha’s head as he chanted this sacred Invocation.

Make all mysteries disappear and evil visions dissolve
And make us strangers to poison, sword, fire and flood.
We call upon Thee, the Great Fierce One from the Family of the Invincible, the Great Adítya

And upon Thee with the Vajra-chains which bind all evil, second only to the Noble

Avalokiteśvara in might, along with Thy Vajra-handmaidens, the upholders of the Families, And upon Thee, the Golden-garlanded One whose great knowledge is as a diamond which Thou holdest in Thy hand, the Jewel in the Red Safflower, Vairochana, from whose actions the head

crown arises,
And upon Thee, Lochána, with Thy garlands in full bloom, Divine Mother Who is Wisdom, Thee

whose Vajra is lustrous as gold, who, like the Vajra-beaked Ganúda, swallows the serpent of hatred, the Dazzling White One whose eyes are like lotus blossoms, radiant as the moon at its fullest.

As thus we speak, may all of you through your multitudinous mudra signs protect us from all things!

streams forth from the Great Vajra Crown for ten yojanas in all directions,
Help me to restrain such entanglements with gentle kindness and friendliness,

Help me to restrain them with dignity and in full light,
Help me to restrain them with my very hands,

Help me to restrain them with my whole body and every part of it.

Thus I pray:-
Om to Thee, Flame of the Sweet Dew, blaze forth in all Your brilliance and purity, shine forth

Your skilful tenderness!
O Vajrapāni, Heroic One, Thee who holdest the Diamond of Wisdom in Thy hand, restrain all that

would fetter us! Peace!
Hūm trūm, Peace! All Hail!
Homage to the Tathāgata, the Successful One, the Arahant, the Fully Enlightened One who has

completely realized the Wisdom that is the Path of the Divine Mother Prajñāpāramitā! All Hail!
