The Great Compassion Mantra

The Vast, Great, Perfect, Full, Unimpeded Great Compassion Heart Dharani

By The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

The great mantra of great compassion penetrates heaven and earth. One hundred recitations for one thousand days causes ten kings to rejoice. Its great compassion and kindness cure all disease. And so an announcement is projected high upon the offense screen.

When you recite the Great Compassion Mantra, the heavens quake and the earth trembles as the mantra penetrates heaven and earth. If you recite it 108 times every day for a thousand days (that's about three years) reciting at the same time everyday without missing a day no matter how busy you are, then the ten kings who are directors in the hells in the courts of Yama are delighted.

Why is it called the "Great Compassion Mantra"?

Because its compassion can relieve living beings of all their sufferings and difficulties. Because it relieves suffering and bestows happiness, it's called the Great Compassion Mantra.

Most important, it can cure ilness. No matter what your illness, if you recite the Great Compassion Mantra, you will be cured.

Someone asks, "I recite it. Why haven't I been cured?"

You haven't been cured because your heart is not sincere.

With a sincere heart, you will certainly obtain a response from the mantra. When you have recited 108 times every day for a thousand days, the ten directions in the courts of Yama will be delighted and all illness will be cured. You will have earned a great deal of merit because for three years: while reciting the mantra, you were not creating offences, you weren't drinking wine, eating meat, or eating the five pungent plants.

In the hells there is a platform on which stands everything you've ever done like killing, stealing, arson, reliving all those experiences again. But you have no karma, then nothing will show up on the screen.

Because you are devoid of karmic obstacles, they hang a sign up in the hells which says, "So and So recites the Great compassioon Mantra and has already detroyed his offense-karma."

All ghosts and spirits in the hells must bow down in respect to him if they were meeting the Buddhas of the past, present and future. They protect him as they would the Buddhas and they must inform all other ghosts and spirits not to give him any trouble. So the power of the Great Compassion Mantra is inconceivable.


Benefits in Reciting and Holding The Great Compassion Mantra

Excerpts from The Dharani Sutra

English translation by the Buddhist Text Translation Society,

Dharma Realm Buddhist University, USA

If humans and gods recite and hold the phrases of the Great Compassion Mantra, then when they approach the end of life, all the Buddhas of the ten directions will come to take them by the hand to rebirth in whatever Buddhaland they wish, according to their desire.

Should any living beings who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion fall into the three evil paths, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not be reborn in any Buddhaland, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not obtain unlimited samadhis and eloquence, I vow not to realise the right enlightenment. Should any living being who recites and holds the spiritual mantra of Great Compassion not obtain the fruits of whatever is sought in this very life, then he cannot have been making proper use of the Dharani of the Great Compassion Heart.

People and gods who recite and hold the Great Compassion Mantra will obtain fifteen kinds of good birth and will not suffer fifteen kinds of bad death.

Those who recite and hold the spiritual Mantra of Great Compassion will not suffer any of these fifteen kinds of bad death and will obtain the following fifteen kinds of good birth:

1. Their place of birth will always have a good king
2. They will always be born in a good country
3. They will always be born at a good time
4. They will always meet good friends
5. The organs of their body will always be complete
6. Their heart will be pure and full in the way
7. They will not violate the prohibitive precepts
8. Their family will be kind and harmonious
9. They will always have the necessary wealth and goods in abundance
10. They will always obtain the respect and help of others
11. They riches will not be plundered
12. They will obtain everything they seek
13. Dragons, gods, and good spirits will always protect them
14. In the place where they are born they will see the Buddha and hear the Dharma
15. They will awaken to the profound meaning of that Proper Dharma which they hear.

Those who recite and hold the Great Compassion Mantra will obtain these fifteen kinds of good birth. All gods and people should constantly recite and hold it, without carelessness.
