Chanting the Names of Manjushri – Mañjuśrī Nāma Saṃgīti

Chanting the Names of Manjushri (Skt. Manjushri Nama Samgiti – Mañjuśrīnāmasaṃgīti) Tib. འཇམ་དཔལ་མཚན་བརྗོད་Wyl.‘jam dpal mtshan brjod) (Toh. 360) — a famous praise of Manjushri, sometimes known as the ‘king of all tantras‘. Taught directly by Buddha Shakyamuni, the tantra lists names that praise Manjushri, who is here to be understood not as a bodhisattva but as the embodiment of the primordial wisdom of all buddhas. It consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. In spite of the text’s length and difficulty, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö famously memorized it after reading it only once.[1]
