About the Teaching

Flyer ENG

This mantra is one of the most important and popular mantras in the Tibetan Bon tradition. This mantra is commonly called the MA TRI mantra and is also known as The Great Mantra. It has been recited for thousands of years by many people in the Himalayas, as a mantra to purify negative emotions (and negative energy) and develop compassion.

It is a short mantra (consists of 8 syllables) associated with enlightened beings: Buddha Tonpa Shenrab and wisdom mother Sherab Chamma. the Wise Loving Mother as well as Buddha’s six enlightened manifestation in each of the Six Realms: hell, hungry ghosts, animal, human, demi-gods, and god. These six manifestations of Buddha Tönpa Shenrap are known as the Six Subduing Shen.

By blessing of these enlightened beings and reciting the mantra, our physical, emotional and mental problems can be healed. Through our own spiritual development we have more positive energy and are able to do more good for others.

During the retreat Geshe Gyatso will guide through the recitaton practices according to the text of the MA TRI mantra.

Teaching will be in English with Hungarian translation. Stay tuned for information about further languages.
