Chanting the Names of Manjusri: The Manjusri Nama Samgiti

 
Alex Wayman (Author)
Synopsis

This is the first English translation of one of the most revered and often-used tantric texts in Tibetan Buddhism--the Manjusri-nama-samgiti. While consisting of only 160 verses and some mantra sentences, the work condenses an enormous tantric lore, so much that it garnered exalted mention in the Vimalaprabha--the great commentary on the Kalacakra--and is cited a number of times in the celebrated tantrist Naropa's Hevajratantra commentary.

Changing the Names of Manjusri sets the English translation of this important text alongside the complete original Sanskrit, with its Tibetan translation. The format of presenting the three translations side-by-side, along with pertinent extracts from the Tanjur commentaries on the work, creates an ideal situation for study.
