Omnisutra Amitabha – Shurangama Mantra
This mantra is believed to have been given by the Buddha himself to Maitreya to protect Ananda as he became an Arhat. Here it is sung in Sanskrit by Gavin Shri Amneon with mostly Tibetan ritual instrument accompaniment. This mantra is the core of esoteric Buddhism. The first half invokes the benevolent Buddhas and Boddhistavas. The second half is in effect an exorcism, to dispel all negativity and black magic from the various orders of society and nature, and protect Buddhists and meditators.
Duration of sutra: 1 hour 8 minutes
