A mantra is a key that opens a deep force within us which goes beyond our ego and connects us to certain qualities of the Dao.
Mantras are one of the essential pillars in Buddhism. The essence of Buddha’s teachings is transmitted in a compact way directly to our heart. Individual mantras transmit individual aspects of the teachings.
There are open mantras such as Namo Amitabhaya and the Green Tara mantra which can bring us protection, security and healing or lead us beyond death.
Furthermore, there are mantras in Living Dao that support us on the path of wake-up. These mantras come from Dzogchen and must be transmitted by an awakened master. Master Shangshi has been transmitting these mantras in his seminars for years.
