 +
 +====== Five Categories of Mantric Dharmas ======
 +
 +There are [[Five]] major [[categories]] of [[Mantric]] [[Dharmas]]:​
 +
 +1.  [[Dharma]] of [[Hooking and Summoning]],  ​
 +
 +2. [[Dharma]] of [[Taming and Subduing]],  ​
 +
 +3. [[Dharma]] of [[Dispelling Disasters]],  ​
 +
 +4. [[Dharma]] of [[Increasing Benefit]],  ​
 +
 +5. [[Dharma]] of [[Accomplishment]]. ​

 +[[Commentary]]:​
 +
 +The [[Great Assembly]], gazing upward, felt fearful admiration and sought the [[Buddha]]'​s kind [[protect]]ion. All the [[Great]] [[Bodhisattva]]s ([[Mahasattva]]),​ [[Great]] [[Arhat]]s, [[Great]] [[Bhikshu]]s,​ and all the others in the [[Great]] [[gathering]],​ threw back their heads and looked up toward the [[Transformation Body]] of the [[Thus Come One]] atop the [[crown]] of the [[Buddha]]'​s head. Some felt fearful when they saw the [[Transformation Buddha]]. But at the same [[time]], they admired that [[Thus Come One]]. They [[love]]d him, but not with the [[emotional love]] that [[exist]]s between men and [[women]]. What they felt was [[True]] [[love]], free of [[desire]] or [[longing]]. They had both these [[feeling]]s at the same [[time]], they were awestruck and yet drawn by [[love]]. So they hoped the [[Buddha]] would take pity on them and also [[protect]] them. [[Single Mind]]edly they listened as the [[Thus Come One]] in the light at the [[Invisible Appearance on the Crown]] of the [[Buddha]]'​s head proclaimed the [[Spiritual Mantra]] ([[Shurangama Mantra]]). They were all of one [[Mind]]. They all wanted to listen to the [[Buddha]]. The mound of [[flesh]] on the [[crown]] of the [[Buddha]]'​s head is called the "​[[Invisible Appearance on the Crown]]."​ It is called the "​invisible appearance"​ because ordinary [[people]] cannot see it. Those who saw the [[Hundred]] rays of light and the [[Transformation Buddha]] atop the [[crown]] of the [[Buddha]]'​s head were [[Sage]]s who had been certified to the [[Fruition]]. The [[Transformation Buddha]] that was emitted from the [[Invisible Appearance on the Crown]] hovered in [[Space]] and proclaimed the [[Spiritual Mantra]].
 +
 +So, the [[Shurangama Mantra]] was not spoken by [[Shakyamuni]] [[Buddha]] him[[self]] in the [[flesh]], but rather it was proclaimed by the [[Transformation Body]] [[Buddha]] he sent out into [[Empty]] [[Space]]. As to the [[Mantra]], no one [[understand]]s it. Nor is it possible to explain it [[syllable]] by [[syllable]] and line by line. But if you want to [[understand]] it, I can try to explain it for you. However, this is not the [[time]] for that, because we are in the middle of the explanation of the [[Shurangama Sutra]], and the [[Mantra]] alone couldn'​t be completely explained in a year, or even in three years, or even ten years. So, at this point it cannot be explained thoroughly. I will simply explain the general meaning of the [[Mantra]].
 +
 +The [[Mantra]] has [[Five Divisions]] which correspond to the [[Five Directions]] : [[North]], [[South]], [[East]], [[West]], and the [[Middle]]. ​
 +
 +The [[Eastern Division]] is the [[Vajra Division]], with [[Akshobhya]] [[Buddha]] as the [[Teaching Host]]. ​
 +
 +The [[Southern Division]] is the [[Production of Jewels Division]], with [[Production of Jewels Buddha]] ([[Ratnasambhava]]) as the [[Teaching Host]]. ​
 +
 +The [[Central Division]] is the [[Buddha Division]], with [[Shakyamuni]] [[Buddha]] as the [[Teaching Host]]. ​
 +
 +The [[Western Division]] is the [[Lotus Division]], with [[Amitabha Buddha]] as the [[Teaching Host]]. ​
 +
 +The [[Norttern Division]] is the [[Karma Division]], with [[Accomplishment Buddha]] ([[Amoghasiddhi]]) as the [[Teaching Host]]. ​
 +
 +There are [[Five Divisions]],​ because there are five huge [[demon]]ic armies in this [[World]]. There are [[demon]]s to the [[East]], [[South]], [[West]], [[North]], and in the [[Center]]. Since there are these five [[demon]] armies, not just five [[demon]]s, the [[Buddha]]s also cover the [[Five Directions]] to suppress the [[demon]]s. If there were no [[Buddha]]s,​ the [[demon]]s could appear openly in the [[World]].
 +
 +
 +Wi[[thin]] the [[Five Divisions]] of the [[Mantra]] there are, in general, more than thirty [[Dharmas]],​ and it has more than a [[Hundred Dharmas]] that can be discussed in detail. ​
 +
 +There are [[Five]] major kinds of [[Dharmas]]:​
 +
 +1) [[Dharma of Accomplishment]]. This means that with this [[Dharma]], you will be [[success]]ful in what you seek or in what you [[Vow]] ([[Pranidhana]]) or wish for.
 +
 +2) [[Dharma of Increasing Benefit]]. This means that when you [[recite]] this [[Mantra]], you can increase [[benefit]]s which you your[[self]] seek and you can also increase [[benefit]]s for other [[people]].
 +
 +3) [[Dharma of Hooking and Summoning]]. This means, literally, to "hook in" and catch and to call with a command all the weird beings, [[demon]]s, and [[ghost]]s. No [[matter]] how far away they might be from you, you can bring them in and capture them. For instance, suppose one of them is [[harming]] someone, and when they finish they run away. If one knows how to use the [[Dharma]] of [[Hooking and Summoning]],​ then no [[matter]] how far that being may have run, you can arrest him.
 +
 +4) [[Dharma of Subduing]]. [[Demon]]s also have [[spiritual]] penetration]]s ([[Siddhi]]) and [[Mantra]]s which they use. When you [[recite]] your [[Mantra]]s,​ they [[recite]] their [[Mantra]]s. But if you can use the [[Shurangama Mantra]], you can smash through all their [[Mantra]]s. I've told you before about the section of the [[Mantra]] which is for smashing the [[demon king]]s. It also is [[effect]]ive in [[destroy]]ing their [[Mantra]]s and spells. Although I've taught you this al[[read]]y,​ it bears rep[[eating]] here. Those who have not studied this yet can take note of it. Why was it that as soon as the [[Shurangama Mantra]] was [[recite]]d the former [[Brahma]] [[Heaven]] [[Mantra]] lost its [[effect]]iveness?​ It was because of the "​[[Five Great Heart Mantras]]."​
 +
 +
 +[[Chr Two Ni]]
 +
 +[[E Jya La]]
 +
 +[[Mi Li Ju]]
 +
 +[[Bwo Li Dan La Ye]]
 +
 +[[Ning Jye Li]]
 +
 +These [[Five]] lines are called the "​[[Five Great Heart Mantras]]."​ It is the fundamental [[Mantra]] for [[destroy]]ing the [[Mantra]]s and spells of the [[Heavenly Demon]]s and adherents of [[externalist]] [[way]]s. It doesn'​t [[matter]] what kind of [[Mantra]] they come up with; you can [[destroy]] it with this one. Their [[Mantra]]s will lose their [[effect]]iveness. This [[Dharma]] I've just [[transmit]]ted (see [[transmission]] and [[lineage]]) could sell for several [[million]] dollars, but I do not sell it. [[Seeing]] that you have a certain amount of [[sincerity]],​ I [[transmit]] it to you absolutely free.
 +
 +5) [[Dharma of Dispelling Disasters]]. Whatever [[calamity]] is due to occur can be [[prevent]]ed. For instance, suppose a [[person]] was due to fall into the sea and drown, but by reciting the [[Shurangama Mantra]], he avoids the [[catastrophe]]. He might fall into the sea, but he doesn'​t drown. Perhaps you are in a boat that ought to sink, but you [[recite]] this [[Mantra]] and the boat does not go down. Maybe you're in an air[[plane]] that is destined to crash, but you [[recite]] the [[Shurangama Mantra]] and the [[plane]] [[Land]]s without incident. I'll tell you some[[thing]] incredible. I was going from [[Burma]] to [[Thailand]],​ an air route that is particularly d[[anger]]ous. But during that trip, the [[plane]] didn't show the [[effect]]s of any turbulence. The ride was absolutely [[smooth]]. Even the pilot commented, "Why has it been such [[smooth]] going on this trip?" He had no idea that during that ride the [[Gods]], [[Dragon]]s ([[Naga]]), and the rest of the [[Eightfold Division]], as well as [[Buddha]]s and [[Bodhisattva]]s,​ were on all sides of the air[[plane]] guarding and [[protect]]ing it. That's the [[way]] the [[Dharma]] of [[Dispelling [[disaster]]s]] works. When there [[clear]]ly should be an accident, it can change big [[disaster]]s to small ones and make small ones never even happen. Usually what happens is there'​s "alarm but no d[[anger]]"​ if you [[recite]] the [[Shurangama Mantra]].
 +
 +In general, the [[Mantra]] contains [[Dharmas]] of [[Auspicious]]ness. This means that when you [[recite]] the [[Shurangama Mantra]], everything goes just as you'd like it to. It's really lucky and [[extreme]]ly [[Auspicious]].
 +
 +The advantages of the [[Mantra]] are so many that one could not even begin to express them in several years [[time]]. But at this [[time]], I'll limit my explanation to these few [[Dharmas]] and meanings.
