Hidden Meaning Of Manjushrinamasamgiti (妙吉祥真实名经)
Manjushrinamasamgiti is an important classic work of Anuttara Tantra (无上密) as it not only describes the
practice of tathagatagarbha (如来藏), it also touches on to the practice of Manjushri (妙吉祥). From Manjushrinamasamgiti an alternative
to Vajrasattva Illusion Net (大幻化网) can be established.
so, it is quite difficult to understand the content of Manjushrinamasamgiti and
there are many ways to interpret this work. According to the opinion of
Candragomin (月官) Manjushrinamasamgiti
refers to the practice of Manjushri and Yamantaka only.
interpretation of Manjushrinamasamgiti refers to the generation stage of
illusion net (大幻化网), the vajra
sphere (金刚界), awareness of
reality of Dharmadatu (法界体性智), great rounded wisdom (大圆镜智), wisdom of great observation (妙观察), wisdom of equality (平等性智) and wisdom of accomplishment (成所作智).
there are two important views in Manjushrinamasamgiti:
view of various Buddhist schools verses the view of external paths (外道)
2 stages of Yamantaka Tantra:
generation stage: the generation of 49 peaceful wisdom deities, the generation
of 49 wrathful deities and finally the Yamantaka with consort.
completion stage: visualization of nadis and chakras together with the practice
know the 100 peaceful and wrathful deities of Vajrasattva but ignorant of the
49 peaceful and wrathful deities of Manjushri. So, Manjushri’s Illusion Net is
also equivalent to that of Vajrasattva Illusion Net. Since the practice of
Vajrasattva is related to Great Perfection, the practice of Manjushri can also
lead to Great Perfection.
anyone who understands the hidden meaning of Manjushrinamasamgiti; he/she also
qualified to practice the pinnacle of Tibetan Buddhism! People who are
contented with just reciting Manjushrinamasamgiti alone blindly would only be
threading water for all eternity.
