The Great Compassion Mantra Of Avalokitesvara

This is a wonderful rendition of the third Great Compassion Mantra as found in the Chinese tradition with some beautiful images compiled by Michiko. The video seems to have been uploaded with the victims of the Japanese Tsunami in mind, and we all remember the people swept away unawares on that dreadful April morning – hoping that they have all found a good rebirth and can make further progress through this fearful saṁsāra.

As far as I have been able to find out this is the actual mantra that is being chanted:

namo ratna-trayāya
namaḥ ārya-jñāna-sāgara-vairocana-vyūha-rājāya
tathāgatāya arhate samyak-sambuddhaya
namaḥ sarva-tathāgatebyah arhatebyaḥ samyak-saṃbuddhebyaḥ
namaḥ ārya-avalokiteśvarāya bodhisattvāya mahāsattvāya mahākāruṇikāya

tad-yathā:

oṃ dhara dhara dhiri dhiri dhuru dhuru
iti vatte cale cale pracale pracale
kusume kusume vare ili mili citijvalamāpanāye
svāhā!

    General Translation: 1. Adoration the noble Avalokitesvara, bodhisattva, the great compassionate one. 2. Having paid adoration to One who Dispels all Fears, O noble Avalokitesvara, to You adoration, O Nilakantha. 3. I shall enunciate the ‘heart’ dharani which ensures all purposes, is pure and invincible for all beings, and which purifies the path of existence. 4. Thus: Lord of Effulgence, the World-Transcending One. Come, come, great bodhisattva, descend, descend. Bear in mind my heart-dharani. Do do the work. Hold fast, oh Victor, oh Great Victor. Hold on, hold on, oh Lord of the Dharani. Move, move oh my immaculate image, come come. Destroy every poison. Quick, bear in mind, quick, quick, descend, descend. Being enlightened, being enlightened, enlighten me, enlighten me. Oh merciful Nilakantha appear unto me. To you who eyes us, hail. To the Great Siddha hail. To the Great Siddha in Yoga hail. To Nilakantha hail. To the Boar-feaced hail. 5. Adoration to the Triple Gem. Adoration to the noble Avalokitesvara bodhisattva, hail. “ – See more at: http://yogaforthenewworld.com/om-ratna-trayaya-mantra-homage-to-the-triple-gem/#sthash.laWm9mek.dpuf
