FPMT Education Services’ mantra resource page on FPMT.org offers students many commonly used mantras for their personal use. Recently added are the Just by Seeing Mantras—the Phagpa Chulung Rolpai Do Mantra and the Six Syllables of Clairvoyance Mantra, which are only necessary to be seen by sentient beings to have benefit.

Mantras, meaning “mind protection,” are Sanskrit syllables, usually recited in conjunction with the practice of a particular meditational deity, and embody the qualities of the deity with which they are associated. Some mantras are so powerful that they are said to be able to benefit others even when no virtuous motivation is present.

Extensive advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche about the benefits of reading, writing, or reciting particular mantras, or how to engage with mantras to eliminate or reduce potential or ongoing obstacles, is available on FPMT.org’s Advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive’s Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s Online Advice Book pages.
