I will address the logistics of practicing the mantras in the following chapters. However, the most significant benefit of practicing any of the mantras is attained when you begin to put them into practice. Thus, if you are looking for a way to better yourself and your family, then you owe it to yourself to spend your time practicing mantra. We will talk about some ways to use the mantras in the following chapters.
The teachings of the Tibetan masters were given from the platform of understanding the nature of reality. The realization of this understanding is an indescribable experience that transcends time and space. We will look at the nature of this realization and look at some of the practical ways we can use this understanding to our advantage. In this way we can discover a personal realization that is so profound that it can’t be explained in words. From there we can use this understanding to become more compassionate to ourselves and to other beings. This understanding allows us to be more relaxed and to find inner peace. With a peaceful mind comes the ability to achieve our dreams and to manifest the miracles that we thought were impossible.
We will also explore the Tibetan magical tradition and demonstrate its use and. We will analyze the practices of the four main areas of this tradition: the Kagyupas, the Nyingmapas, the Drikpa Lamas, and the Bönpos. Many of the other sects and traditions use mantras as well. The practices of the Nyingmapas have their own mantras to use in conjunction with the other mantras to achieve the same results.
So, we will be performing and reciting three mantras of the riddhis and four mantras of the bodhisattvas and buddhas. We will be reciting the mantras while meditating on the appropriate deities. This is not always easy, because the deities have to be invoked, but the first ritual is relatively easy. Once you have learned the mantras, you will have a far greater understanding and appreciation of what it is you are reciting. Often, you would be reciting the mantras in your head, before you even learn them. You will find the second ritual much more difficult, the first mantra will immediately work with you, the second will only work once you have mastered the first. This is because it is a mantra that is used to increase your will power and it is a mantra that is used to perform psychic feats. It's a difficult mantra, both in the technique and also in its power. With the third mantra you will be dealing with a deity who is a manifestation of your own body and mind. In other words, you are becoming a deity, but through the mantra you are invoking.
Begin by sitting with your back straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths, and then begin to chant. Go slowly, and listen to the mantra. Focus your attention on the mantra. In your mind, think of the mantra as it is spoken, as if it was your own thought. Repeat the mantra. When you stop the mantra, go back to the beginning and start again. 827ec27edc
