Dharani of the Eight Noble Goddesses
I prostrate myself before all the Enlightened Ones and Bodhisattvas!
Then Vajrapani [said]:
Mother of Tathagatas, who purifies all harmful things! You soothe all diseases! You completely destroy all interference! You are realizing [the manifestation of] complete perfection! I proclaim this supreme queen of the great mantra-dharani!

Manjushri! When this mandala, which grants initiation into the great primordial wisdom, is on your hand — you will be freed from the obscurations-klesh. You will be free from all fears. And even if you stay among bandits, Rakshasas, warring parties-the body will not be damaged by their weapons. You will not be destroyed by bandits. You will not be damaged by rakshasas, etc. There will be no fear of untimely death. You will have permanent fame. You will completely purify all harmful things. You can even gather the roots of virtue of hundreds of millions of Enlightened People in this way in one day. Even at the time of death, the Enlightened and Bodhisattvas will be fully supported.
If you die and go to Sukhavati, what else is there to stick to, to read, to ponder, to stick to without discarding? All that is harmful to him [who adheres to it] will be cleansed. By this means the gates of the lower states will be closed. It will be extracted from afar from lowly possessions and lowly states. A person who reads this once, starting in the morning-whatever he does that is terrifying in the world, will be freed from all that is harmful. And there will be no harm from enemies, weapons, bandits, such as Rakshasas, etc.
You will be completely freed from an untimely death. You will always have the glory. Even if the time of death comes, you will be extracted from the lower existences. Being fully supported by the Enlightened Ones, you will be born in Sukhavati.
Said so. The entire universe, along with the gods, humans, asuras, and Gandharvas, rejoiced and gave praise.
Thus ends the dharani of the eight noble goddesses.
