Chanting the Names of Noble Mañjushri

Buddha Shakyamuni

Commonly known as simply the Namasangiti, this is one of the most highly revered tantras throughout all lineages and practice systems of Vajrayana Buddhism. In it, Buddha Shakyamuni teaches Vajrapani and his retinue a list of names for the wisdom body of Mañjushri, the heart of all tathagatas. Expressed in attractive and at time playful verses, these names evoke an extremely vast array of topics and images, from the mundane to the transcendent, and from the quiescent to the ferocious. The Namasangiti has occupied a central role in the daily chanting of Buddhist practitioners for centuries and is often the first text to be recited on special occasions.
