- Buddha Shakyamuni Mantra
Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha.
Shakyamuni’s mantra is a play on his name. Muni means sage
Maha means great. So the mantra reads “Om wise one, wise one, greatly wise one, wise one of the Shakyans, Hail!”
Shakyamuni Buddha was, historically, a spiritual master who lived and taught in modern day India and Nepal in the 6th century BCE, and who founded Buddhism. The name Buddha means the “awakened” or “enlightened” one, and after his own awakening. The Buddha was not a God, but a human being who attained an extraordinary insight into the nature of existence: an insight that rid his mind of delusion, hatred, and craving, and which allowed him to attain true happiness, free from suffering.
- The Four Immeasurable Thoughts
May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering;
May all sentient beings never be separated, from the happiness that knows no suffering;
May all sentient beings live in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.
