In this Buddha Weekly special presentation, enjoy the healing mantras and visualization images of Healing Paranashari.
Sing-along MANTRA (Sanskrit)
Om Pishachi Parnashavari Sarvajora Prashamanayeh Svaha
Or, the Tibetan version (very similar)
OM PI-SA-CHI PAR-NA-SHA-VA-RI SAR-VA ZO-LA PRA-SHAMA- NA YE SO-HA
Singing, music and arrangement by Hrishikesh Sonar. Chant along now, while meditating on her holy form, visualizing healing light entering your body. As always for any health or healing meditation, always first consult with your health care providers. Meditation and mantras are helpful supports, but not a replacement for health care.
