Noble [Teaching]. The Great Chariot Sutra " The Seven Enlightened Ones»
I prostrate myself before all the Enlightened ones and Bodhisattvas!
So I heard once.
The Blessed one was very close to the Rishi's place of practice in the world of the gods at the top of mount Kailasha. With him was a Good Assembly of monks, five hundred in number, and five hundred Bodhisattvas, among whom were Maitreya bodhisattva-mahasattva, Akashagarbha bodhisattva-mahasattva, Samantabhadra, Anatakusuma, Sumanthakusuma, and other Bodhisattvas who were attached to only one birth.
Then the Blessed One, being captured by the appearance of the monks in this forest on the top of the mountain, rose up and [turned into a man] with hands without clothes and a naked ascetic. I cried and looked at them.
Then the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha, having released one shoulder from the clothes, knelt down on the ground with his right knee. Sinking down, he bowed before the Blessed one, clasping his hands. And he said the following to the Blessed one:
Blessed one! [You have revealed] the sounds of sorrow in the midst of the heavenly space. Monks [ask] each other in prayers about hands without clothes and naked [ascetic, saying], what is it?
Then the Blessed one said to the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha:
Akashagarbha! This is the mark of the disease. These one and the other are also marked by diseases.
Then the bodhisattva-mahasattva said to the Blessed one:
I ask the Blessed one to explain how to completely pacify all diseases, what is the mantra of conduct for dropping all bhutas.
Said so, asking.
Then the Blessed one manifested as the Enlightened one. Then the six Tathagatas appeared in the sky. The seventh was the Blessed one, Tathagata Shakyamuni.
Then the Tathagata Vipashyin took up his position in the sky. And in order to benefit all living beings, for the complete pacification of all diseases, for the rejection of all elements-bhuti-uttered these foundations of the secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya tadyathā oṁ hala hala hila hilāya namo jagana micanāya namo namaḥ svāhā
Then the Tathagata Vipashyin said to the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha:
Akashagarbha! If someone keeps this mantra of knowledge, reads, studies everywhere, his body will not be harmed by weapons. The time of death will not come because of sickness from the suffering of water or fire. The time of dying due to untimely death will not appear. Even if he eats the poison, it will become like food.
Say seven times over food and drink. If you taste it, there will be no external harm. You won't be marked with all the diseases. You will live for a long time. You'll stick to learning. You will see the bodily forms of the seven Tathagatas. When you perform a repetition at the ear that has been cut off by the weapon, the oil of nutmeg will be bestowed. When marked by diseases of leprosy and tumors, make oil by mixing oil of nutmeg, blue Lotus, coriander seed, asparagus. If you do this, you will cure all diseases. Also connect with all acts.
Then the Tathagata Shikhin settled down in the celestial space above. And in order to benefit all living beings, for the complete pacification of all diseases, for the rejection of all elements-bhuti-uttered these foundations of the secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya oṁ paca paca pācaya pācaya sarva bhūtā nāṁ cchindhaya kīlaya vara vidyā nāṁ svāhā
Akashagarbha! For the sake of goals in the form of benefit to all beings, the complete pacification of all diseases, the rejection of mistakes in meditation and bad dreams, the suppression of untimely death - [this mantra] has been proclaimed by many myriads of enlightened People. I will also clarify now. Stick to that heart.
Akashagarbha! If someone performs this heart of mine three times a day in his mind, he will not be harmed by external conditions. He will see the bodily form of the Tathagata when he falls asleep, falling asleep. In bad circumstances, he will not die. After dying, he will meet the Tathagata and be satisfied.
Then [follows] another such ritual. Since it is entangled with all diseases, there are fetters. When you have performed the acts of gathering [everything], recite [the mantra] over the oil of nutmeg and offer it. The directions will be connected by water. You will protect yourself with threads. Blue threads will connect provocations for children. Read sevenfold over your ear what is cut off by the weapon. Also connect with your own mind and with other [actions].
Then the Tathagata Vishvabhu located in a heavenly space at the top. And in order to benefit all living beings, for the complete pacification of all diseases, for the rejection of all bhutas, he recited these foundations of the secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya oṁ kala kala kili kili kulu kulu kulota sādhanā nāṁ kuru sarva grahā ṇāṁ svāhā
Akashagarbha! These are the foundations of the secret mantra proclaimed by all the Tathagatas of the good age that have appeared in the past, future, and present. I will also clarify now.
Akashagarbha! You stick to these foundations of the secret mantra. If someone stores, reads, analyzes everywhere, their body will not be damaged by weapons. Will not be damaged by poisons. Will not be damaged by poisons from jewels. No contagious diseases will appear. He will not die from water, from untimely death, in a bad place. Will not be exposed to the veils of past deeds.
Any monk or nun, virtuous layman or laywoman, wash their hair when they get up in the morning. If they recite the mantra one hundred and eight times before the Tathagata, all the veils of their deeds will be cleared. All beings who were angry with them will speak of them as the original kings. All creatures will be subject to them. I will be able to act wisely, [staying] inside the fears. In all wars, conflicts, disputes, squabbles will be entangled with white threads.
For eye diseases, make an ointment from the milk tree and anoint on the ears. When you want to paralyze your enemies, recite a hundred and eight times [mantra] over the air rice, mixed with yogurt and honey. Then do the burning of the gifts.
rājā nāṁ rājā mā trambā vaśīkara tu kāmena
And perform the burning of the gifts [with the chanting of the mantra] a thousand times over the sesame and the milk wood burned at the place of burning.
If you want to purify your veils and the veils of all living beings, purify everything harmful, achieve great fame and obtain a large number of jewels, then burn the gifts [with the repetition of the mantra] a thousand times over sesame seeds and milk wood burned at the place of burning.
If you want to purify everything harmful, whatever it may be, you want to fulfill all the mantras of knowledge, you want to purify yourself-wash yourself with a mixture of coriander seed, hibiscus, millet, acacia Siris, Tagar, saffron, round-headed mountaineer, indravaruna, Bodhi tree, mango pommel. For one day before the Enlightened one, prepare a feast and place a vase on the ground. On the full moon, before the image of the Enlightened one, perform ablution by reciting the mantra one thousand and eight times.
Since you do not want to be poisoned by poisons, before the Enlightened one, invite by name [with repetition] one hundred and eight mantras with a teak spoon on your tongue. If you burn gifts, you will not be poisoned by poisons. If you also act in connection with all actions in relation to provocations, protection, elements, etc., then you will be happy.
Then the Blessed one, Tathagata Krakucchanda, settled down in the heavenly space above. And in order to benefit all living beings, for the complete pacification of all diseases, for the rejection of all elements-bhuti-uttered these foundations of the secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya namaḥ krakucchandāya tathāgatāya arhate saṁmyaksaṁ buddhāya oṁ kaṭa kaṭa kaṭha kaṭha kiṭi kiṭi kiṭhi kiṭhi kiṭāpaya namaḥ svāhā
Akashagarbha! You hold on to that joyful heart and proclaimed [equal] miriada grains of sand of the Ganges "the Tathagata, Arhat, perfect Enlightened one, the true Krakucchanda". Receive, keep, comprehend everywhere. If you do this, you will be pure in later life as a monk or nun, a virtuous layman or laywoman. Having found faith in the Three Jewels, you will perform ablution. After offering the Blessed one a flower, incense, and fragrant water, repeat this secret mantra one hundred and eight times. Then you will remember the life line for seven lifetimes.
You will find the essence of divine greatness among the gods. You will also become a Chakravartin among people. Also, if you act in accordance with the ritual, you will receive the last birth as a person. If you die after that, you will be born in Sukhavati, the realm of the universe. If you repeat it constantly in this life, you will be free from all diseases, you will stick to learning. Say seven times over food and drink. If you then eat or drink, you will be free from all diseases. So, if you want to get a drink, then purify all the food with one thousand and eight mantras. If you cut off emerging diseases, use a copper needle. If you will be released from all scandals, conflicts, fetters, then repeat seven times. If you do this, then the jewels will also increase constantly. You will also be free from all hindrances and negative forces.
Also, if you want to see the Tathagata, place the mandala on the ground in the circle of the universe in its pure direction. Having done so, fumigate the aloe. When you say it a thousand and eight times, look in the East direction, which is close to it. If you fall asleep, you will see the Tathagata. For the mind, everything will be shown in the smallest grains. All lives, powers, victories and defeats will also be shown.
Then the Tathagata Kanakamuni placed himself in the celestial space above. And in order to benefit all living beings, for the complete pacification of all diseases, for the rejection of all elements-bhuti-uttered these foundations of the secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya namaḥ kanakamunaye tathāgatāya arhate saṁmyaksaṁ buddhāya tadyathā oṁ sara sara sara sara siri siri siri siri sirāya dhama dhama dhama dhama dhuma dhuma dhuma dhumāya namo namaḥ kanakamunaye tathāgatāya arhate saṁmyaksaṁ buddhaya svāhā
Then Tathagata Kanakamuni said to the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha this heart:
Akashagarbha! Anyone who adheres to this heart and constantly repeats — there will be no fear of weapons. There will be no time for the appearance of death by fire, water, or lightning. There will also be no possibility for [harm] from all poisons that correspond to food. The time of death due to untimely death will not be formed either. There will be no death due to bad properties. Will become a long-lived person. The wealth will be great. He will constantly meet the Tathagata. The Tathagatas will bless. If you carry out the proclamation-recitation in the three times, you will clear all the veils of the deeds of the past. But if you want to be free from external diseases, then offer Torma as much as you can, light incense from kundura or aloe. And also clean all the food.
In leprosy, tumors, enlargement of the liver — mix the honey with a bandage with a soft air. If, having done so, you anoint after reciting one thousand and eight mantras before the Blessed-enlightened One, you will cure all leprosy.
For four days, recite one thousand and eight times [mantra] over a garland of Jasmine flowers in front of the Blessed-Enlightened one. If you then tie a man on his head, he will be cured of infectious diseases in four days. If you say it over ears cut off by weapons, you will release from forgetfulness. For those who are captured by the demons of rotting corpses, burn [in the form of incense] the flowers offered to the enlightened One. When you carry out such actions, etc., they talk about the implementation of all acts.
Then Tathagata Kashyapa sat down in the space at the top and for [the implementation of] the objectives [in the form] of benefit to all beings, full of peace for all diseases, discarding all Bhuta proclaimed the basis of secret mantra:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya oṁ hara hara hara hara ha ha ha namaḥ kāśyapāya tathāgatāya arhate saṁmyaksaṁ buddhāya siddhyantu mantra pāda svāhā
Then the Tathagata Kashyapa said to the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha:
Akashagarbha! This-was proclaimed equal to the number of grains of sand of the thirty-two Ganges rivers Enlightened and Blessed.
Akashagarbha! You also stick to this heart. Comprehend, support for all, read, realize comprehension. If you repeat three times during the day and three times at night, then, in short, you will also see the Tathagata in a dream. You will also purify all the veils of action, no matter what actions you have associated with in the past.
Contact all actions as well.
[For diseases] leprosy, diseases of the flesh, etc. - say a thousand and eight times [mantra] before the Enlightened one over the flower given to the Enlightened one. If you read and perform ablution, you will recover.
For diseases of the brain, put a flower in front of the Enlightened one, offered by the Enlightened one. Recite the [mantra] one thousand and eight times before the enlightened One. Also contact all [actions].
Then the Blessed one, Tathagata Shakyamuni, sat down in the space above. And in order to benefit all beings, he recited this mantra.:
namo buddhāya namo dharmāya namaḥ saṁghāya tadyathā ghume ghume mahā ghume tale tale mahā tale cale cale mahā cale dhure dhure mahā dhure tiri tiri mahā tiri kili kili mahā kili curu curu mahā curu mili mili mahā mili tili tili mahā tili dhume dhume mahā dhume cale cale mahā cale khiri khiri mahā khiri cili cili mahā cili svāhā
Then the Blessed one, the Shakyamuni Tathagata said to the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha:
Akashagarbha! If you eliminate brain diseases, then use weapons and the palms of your hands. If you turn away the clouds, use a branch of the karavira tree. If you purify poisons, use water. Also act for other actions. Connect [with actions] through ablution rituals. Through all rituals, you will connect with all [actions].
The Blessed one said so. Then the bodhisattva-mahasattva Akashagarbha rejoiced and gave praise to the Blessed ones.
Thus ends the noble [Teaching], the Great Chariot Sutra "the Seven Enlightened ones". Translated by Lama Karma Paljor (Filippov O. E.).
