Many Buddhist teachers have requested students recite Hayagriva’s supreme mantra in troubled times. In The Sutra of Forming Hayagriva it is written: “Whoever, including even the insects, has heard the name and mantra of Hayagriva only one time will never again fall into the lower paths.” Chant along with us now, Hayagriva’s swift and powerful mantra 108 times with Sanskrit mantras chanted (singing, music and arrangement) by Hrishikesh Sonar. (Chanting begins around 2:27 after a brief introduction to the benefits.
In the Manifestation of the Superb Victorious Wrathful Great Horse Tantra, the benefits of reciting Hayagriva’s supreme mantra, is described as: “Those who merely recite the mantra frequently will be free from afflictions. Hayagriva is the king of all protections.”
Many great teachers continue to request their students accumulate Hayagriva Heruka’s mantra — known to be particularly efficacious in these troubled times. Venerable Zasep Rinpoche advises that even without empowerment we may chant the mantra as long as we visualize Hayagriva in front of us.
Bring the benefits of Hayagriva’s supreme mantra into your life. Chant along now, 108 times with beautiful visualized images of the great wrathful lord of Compassion.
