Daimon or Yaksa? Nature’s Primal Energy Rears its Beautiful Face

Yakṣa is the basic energy of being — in fact, Yakṣa simply means “being”. Yakṣas can manifest as powerful warriors with a great wealth aura, a surrounding field of magnetizing leadership and activity that subdues and purifies everything around them, and sometimes they are simply portrayed as a sort of dwarfish imps — small magical creatures that hide and reveal treasures at the root of trees, in valleys.

They manifest in this way playfully, to seem more approachable to humans, as Yakṣas are the caretakers of the earth and all its natural treasures — in this form they are the guardian spirits of villages, cities, ponds and groves, trees and forests, of all wet and pleasant natural places, giving the wet elixir — rasa, which brings joy, and in a more ultimate sense, Amrita, the drink of immortality. Yet again, they are also known as chaotic and mischevous demons, kidnapping humans or simply hypnotizing them through sheer presence. Female Yakṣas, known as Yaksinis, are beautiful, young and voluptuous, inhabiting a dazzling and hypnotic landscape of nature and riches, their bodies adorned with an equally magnetic array of jewels. But returning to the actual nature of Yakṣa, it is pure energy-awareness, primal and formless, compassionate wisdom power, the very nature of one’s own being.

In ancient Greece, the Daimon, or Daemon, had the same complex multi-faceted nature as Yakṣas. They were both godlike power and protective guardians, nature spirits abiding in the space between humans and gods, dispensing riches and good fortune but remaining invisible. Daimōn means deity. Daēmōn means knowing or wise. Daiō to divide, to distribute destinies, to allot. It is the same mix of power, knowing awareness wisdom, and compassionate enriching activity as the Yakṣas.

To the Greeks, the Daimon was a divine mode of activity for all beings, both inherent in them and manifesting externally, driving them forward or stopping them in their tracks. To Plato, the Daimon was also inner, the spiritual nature of being which, for the unawakened, is a watcher, and for the awakened, the energy of their presence and activity. Being the energy of everything, Daimons appear externally as both good and evil, and Plato calls them “incorporeal, pure actuality, energeia… identical to its performance. the most blessed existence, the highest origin of everything. ‘This is the god. On such a principle heaven depends, and the cosmos”. Socrate’s teacher, a priestess, tells him love is not a deity, but a “great daemon” — in this, the Daemon as a transcending principle that is not the form of the deity, but something beyond that, is clearly seen.

“The whole air is full of souls. We call them daemones and heros, and it is they who send dreams, signs and illnesses to men; and not only men, but also to sheep and other domestic animals. It is towards these daemones that we direct purifications and apotropaic rites, all kinds of divination, the art of reading chance utterances, and so on’”

Yakṣa is the primal energy of the root, belly and heart, and as the daimonion that Socrates spoke of, this energy is simply there, unconditionally powerful and good, perfectly nonconceptual: Socrates daimonion never told him what to do, per se, yet Socrates always knew what to do, and his daimonion only warned him specifically of what not to do, yet apparently those things had little to do with common views of good and evil, and broached directly into a much larger tapestry of transcendental good and evil, whose play may make little sense immediately, but as in Socrate’s sense, does come together to paint a meaningful picture after all. Put differently, presence is presence, and activity is activity, like a Yakṣa,

Socrates was terribly good at both. He was said to be ugly like a satyr, a nature spirit, yet history has come to portray him as magnetizingly handsome — a trait which is not entirely lost on contemporary sources either — there was something powerful and attractive about him, despite his apparent ugliness. And though entirely contrary to the social standards of the time, Socrates apparently wore the same clothes, kept away from all official social affairs and shunned even the title of teacher — and here perhaps he did not show the full merit of a warrior Yakṣa with impeccable wealth karma and countless means of magnetizing, leading and building, but at the same time he was a wisdom Yakṣa, with playful wrathfulness that conquered his contemporaries and opened up a wholly mundane society to transcendental wisdom that made it positively question all its elements, discerning what is real, true and good. He was, perhaps, playfully displaying the power to endlessly absorb negativity, he even chooses death when he could have easily escaped that fate, and he makes this choice simply because it is the better one for the destiny of his city.

At every step, he shows the primacy of pure presence over all else, and he does so with the indifference and genius of a glorious Yakṣa, swaggering his long hair and intimidating posture through victorious battles and public disputes where his skills of body, voice and mind remain completely unmatched. He is immune to cold and drink, a fact that he displays often, and he is everyone’s friend, friend of his enemies, friend of his friends, and most of all, friend of children, who, with their natural energy, are quick to imitate his ways. He talked equally to men and women, rich and poor, and he had full control over his sexual impulses, never letting them harm what he called the soul of others.

To do this continuously, over a lifetime, without fail and without difficulty, without any hint of unnaturalness, requires exactly what Socrates stated, over and over again, was the driving power at the middle of his presence — a daimonion, a primal Yakṣa energy that is unyielding and loving and unstoppable in its natural potential. Ever-surging and indestructible in its basic essence, it was there for Socrates and within Socrates at all times, and it drove him to do everything he did, constantly, with perfect, relaxed virtue and no doubts. And, as is befitting of a wisdom being, despite his sometimes warlike presence, and skills that, had they been fully cast over his own contemporaries, would have been painfully overbearing, he went to death with the same pure simplicity and willingness with which he lived — he went to death being called “the noblest, the gentlest, and the best” of men.

Atavaka, Lord of the Forest

Looking at the more primal archetypes of Yakṣas, which peer into the deep power at the very base of nature, there is Atavaka, Lord of the Forest, and Yakṣa Ganapati, whose root energy, coursing through the roots of nature itself, is utterly frightening.

Yaksa Ganapati

In a way, all the highest wrathful deities are Yakṣas: Vajrapani, Mahakala, and all their various accompanying forms. Vajrapani is Primordial Buddha, the Lord of Secrets, but also Lord of Yakṣas. He is the keeper of tantric wisdom and the source of primal power itself. In the nature of Mind, all things meet, and the primal energy of Vajra nature gives birth to many enlightened forms, from peaceful to wrathful. Powerful warriors, nature protectors, great tantric secrets and primal energy are all just the same body of the primordial Buddha.

What follows is an account of one of the stories found within Hinduism. It deals with a meeting between two of the most potentially aggressive energies found within a human being: Asura energy — left side uncontrollable mindless wrath, though endowed with potential access into reality-as-is, and Yakṣa energy. Being a Hindu story, at one point it references the “Self”, which is merely a concept, and should be taken to mean realization of the nature of Mind, or the Vajra nature of one’s own being. There’s no Self to identify.

“The Kirthimukha is a protector deity, a threshold guardian belonging to one of the two oldest groups of Cthonic deities in India: the Yakshas from the word Yakshamam (we shall protect) and the Nagas — serpent energies of the earth. These are easily the oldest and perhaps original gods of India, predating the Vedas. Even the Buddha was at birth taken to the shrine of his clan’s guardian Yaksha — Sakha Vardhana.

“Kirthimukha is the male aspect of nature, for while the earth is female, vegetation is masculine. … Europe knew him as Dionysius, then the Green Man or John Barleycorn, while the Sufi mystics still experience him as Khwaja Khidur — a gigantic being, a spiritual initiator and mentor, whose footsteps sprout vegetation… the special meaning of this card is forgiveness. Let go of grudges and hate, and let time take care of the rest.”

“IN MANY INDIAN TEMPLES, you will find over the main gate, or over the door frame of the inner sanctum, a monstrous disembodied head glaring or grinning down at you. This is the Kirtimukha, face of glory. Our myth seeks to explain how this seeming incongruity came to occupy this respected position:

“In the Indian mythological system, the asuras (demons) are cousins of the gods, and indeed are created from the same cosmic material. They are demonic however, because they identify the Self with the body. All their cosmic power is perverted in finding ever fresher ways to satisfy the material consciousness. That gets them in self-destructive trouble over the long term, though in the short term they create some trouble of their own.

“This situation actually works for the good of all sentient beings in the universe, as the asuras are infinitely more powerful than the ‘gods’ — a situation that the Norse divinities knew only too well — and if they were more disciplined or wise, they could have taken over heaven on a permanent basis. As it is, the asuras are always a chaotic force in the evolving universe.

“One such asura suddenly got it into his mind that since he was the strongest being in the universe, he deserved the most beautiful woman existing. This sort of logic is typical asura, but for them to think is to act. He turned up at the abode of Siva the great God himself, and peremptorily demanded possession of Siva’s wife Parvati. Now Parvati is the Great Goddess, and this was stupidity on a scale that even the asura should have quailed at.

“Siva being pure consciousness, merely projected back at the asura a crystallization of his own insatiable desires. This new entity was far worse than anything the asura had seen. It was the living manifestation of a raw hunger, a world devouring flame that needed more, ever more, and was still left empty. The immensity of his own endless desire was now in front, and the asura turned and ran. The new demon chased him, intent on eating him up, devastating and devouring all that was between him and his prey. Peril breeds perspective, and the asura realised that his only hope was Siva. According to Indian mythology, you cannot refuse to grant quarter and protection if it is asked for. So now Siva had one suitably chastened asura on his hands — as well as an enormous problem that seemed determined to eat up the universe.

“The Hunger was accepting of Siva’s mercy, but he had a problem. ‘What do I eat now?‘ He was brought into being to solve a crisis, and now his own existence was jeopardised — which reflected poorly on the God. Siva came up with the sort of Trickster solution so beloved of India — ‘Why don’t you eat yourself?’

“A god’s word is worth following, even if it seems senseless and destructive, and with faith in the Lord the demon did just that. He began to chomp and champ away, beginning with his toes and working upward in a grim straight line that never wavered, never doubted and never ceased to masticate. Finally he came to the neck and that was it — he could no longer contort himself to provide any room to bite.

“Siva laughed, the earth shaking peal of pure joy that Kalidasa said was the Himalayas — the frozen laughter of Siva.

“This episode was a grimly humorous illumination on the nature of life. Life feeds on life, no matter how monstrous that may seem at first glance. Desire forms a perfect feedback loop that ends up eating even what is desired. This concept was known to the Sumerians as Ourobouros, the serpent eating its tail. Life feeds on Life. It is wildly exhilerating and liberating to realise and accept this concept, but it seems monstrous to those who have not had the experience.

“Siva named the Hunger Kirtimukha, the immortal face of glory. He is seen above the doors of all temples. Siva who is Constant Awareness, wants you to be aware of the real nature of the universe, to accept it.

“A philosophy of life and spirituality that will not acknowledge the dark side is only a milk and water religion after all, not really nourishing in the long run. To live in the world, is to be aware of that constant hunger, and as always Siva or god is the only way in which you can transcend it.

“To recognize Kirtimukha is to grow up, to have an adult understanding and acceptance of the universe, not a child’s fantasy. Kirtimukha is thus a threshold guardian to maturity, to the deepening of experience which is called wisdom.”

I won’t give an interpretation of this story here. I leave it as a testament to the simple and natural power of Yakṣa energy, and to the fact that though it starts in the lower body, it also has an indestructible awareness head.

Now that we are done with stories and introductory knowledge, it’s time for mantras and dharanis. What follows is a glorious collection of Yakṣa mantras that, when practiced internally, instill the powerful Yakṣa energy and destiny in anyone. Mantra is perfect mental sound-form, and its repetition is the Vajra dance of body, voice and mind. As for the dharanis, which are longer and unlikely to be learned and practiced internally by most people, merely reading them can have an incredibly powerful effect in one’s life. Learning and practicing a dharani internally is like a supreme gateway into Vajra nature.

“With respect to the words and meanings of this Dhāraṇī-Mantra: If any son or daughter of good lineage copies it, keeps it, reads it, recites it, memorizes it, and with sandalwood powder makes a four-sided Maṇḍala, cleaning it and delineating its boundaries well, and then with incense, flowers, victory banners, rows of butter lamps, music, gold, silver, jewels, pearls, diamonds, sapphires, conches, crystals, corals, bronzes, and implements of veneration in measureless amounts, makes offerings and praises, practicing them accordingly and presenting them clearly, to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and numerous hundreds of thousands of millions of Yakṣas such as the Noble Jambhala, and then recites it for at least one, two or three nights, then all the residences, storerooms, and dwellings of that child of good lineage shall be filled and flourish with gold, silver, grain, horses, sheep, cattle, elephants, oxen and all provisions. Sickness, harm, contagious diseases, untimely death, earthquakes, punishment by kings, falling meteorites, the coming of opposing military groups, periods of famine and all injury shall become nonexistent.”

“For that, the child of good lineage must do things at the proper time. They must venerate, praise, and practice this Imbued with Golden Light, the Dhāraṇī of All Yakṣas; they must retain it, must memorize it, must read it, must intone it, and for others also must extensively, genuinely and comprehensively teach it.”

“As for the qualities and benefits of doing so, they are beyond the reaches of thought and incomparable.”

The Bhagavān granted teaching thus, and then the ruler of gods, Indra, having heard this Imbued with Golden Light, the Dhāraṇī of All Yakṣas, with intense joy and great mental delight which were immeasurable, limitless and unfathomable, gave rise to happiness in mind, and thereupon circumambulated the Bhagavān many hundreds of thousands of times, bowed his head at the feet of the Bhagavān, joined his palms, and then spoke these verses:

Bearing a body of utter purity, supremely excellent form,

Deep wisdom like an ocean or giant mountain of gold,

Fame which brightens and illuminates the world,

Imbued with golden hue, Deity of humans and gods:

To the Supreme Protector himself, you, I bow down and praise!

Again the Ruler of Gods spoke to the Bhagavān with these words: “For those who thus engage in praise, ritual service, practice and rejoicing, what will be the substance of their good qualities and benefits? I request the Bhagavān to teach.”

The Bhagavān gave teaching to the Ruler of Gods: “Whosoever writes out and copies this Dhāraṇī of All Yakṣas in refined gold in a book and keeps it, reads it, endeavors to internalize it, and venerates it in clean dwellings and storehouses, that one shall be guarded, protected and concealed by one thousand Buddhas.”

“If it is resounded in the ear-canals of birds and wild animals, they shall become manifestly complete Buddhas within the unsurpassable, authentically perfect Awakening. They shall never be born in the world of animals nor in that of the Death Lord. If they are born as humans, they shall be born into a ruling family, their bodies shall be excellent, their voices shall be pleasant, their intelligence shall be great, they shall have the fortune to engage in the Dharma, and they shall have inexhaustible resources.”

“The place where this supremely rare Sūtra is read is also one worthy of prostration. It shall transform into a Stūpa.”

“If it is read, or made to be read, and chanted, in the body of the one who does so, there shall never emerge lesions, ulcers, poxes, skin disease, sores, dehydration, poisons, poisons made from precious substances, compounded poisons, curses or untimely death. Wherever they go, whether on roads or isolated wildernesses, harm from wild animals, tigers, bears, snow bears, apes, bees and wasps, horseflies, scorpions, snakes and so forth shall also never befall them. They shall have wealth, grain, gold, silver, fine satin, and treasures of precious things. They shall have wealth, grain, long life, merit and glory of the family line.”

The Bhagavān granted teaching thus with those words, and the ruler of gods, Indra, all the assemblies of Wealth Gods, and the world, with its gods, humans, demigods and celestials, rejoiced, and deeply praised what had been spoken by the Bhagavān.

THIS WAS THE YAKSHA DHĀRANĪ FOR INCREASING WEALTH FROM THE GOLDEN LIGHT.

CHAPTER NINETEEN OF THE GARLAND OF GEMS TANTRA

The Extensive Sūtra of Golden Light:

Chapter 19: Samjñāya, the Lord of Yakshas

Then, the supreme commander of the yakshas Samjñāya, along with twenty-eight great yaksha generals, rose from his seat, and putting his upper robe over one shoulder, knelt on his right knee. Bowing with folded palms toward the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, he addressed the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror in the following words:

“Lord Bhagavan, now and in future times, in whatever villages, cities, towns, valleys, monastery regions, hilly medicinal valleys, or palace areas this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light appears, Lord Bhagavan, I, Samjñāya, the supreme commander of the yakshas, along with the twenty-eight great yaksha generals, shall go to those villages, cities, towns, valleys, monastery regions, hilly medicinal valleys, or palace areas.”

“Creating non-physical forms, we shall protect the monk who expounds the Dharma. We shall completely guard him, look after him, protect him from punishment, and bring him peace, happiness, and success.”

“We will, in all ways, protect all those men, women, boys, and girls who listen to the Dharma, and also all those who come to retain this Sūtra: those who listen to even a single four-line verse, those who hear just a single word of this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light, or who hear just the name of a single bodhisattva or the name of a single tathāgata from this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light, and those who remember or even just hear the name of this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light. We will perfectly protect them, thoroughly look after them, completely nurture them, protect them from punishment, and bring them peace, happiness, and success.”

“We shall also, in all ways, protect all those classes of people, households, villages, cities, towns, monasteries, and palace areas. We will completely guard them, thoroughly look after them, protect them from punishment, and bring them peace, happiness, and success.”

“Lord Bhagavan, due to what cause has my name become ‘Samjñāya [Perfect Knowledge], the Supreme Commander of the Yakshas’? The Lord Bhagavan himself indeed clearly knows this. Lord Bhagavan, I seek all forms of experience. I thoroughly seek out all forms of experience. I comprehend all phenomena. I have direct cognition of all phenomena in all their multiplicity, of all phenomena in exactly the way they are, of how all phenomena abide, of what all phenomena are, of how all phenomena are classified, and, Lord Bhagavan, I am master of them all.”

“Lord Bhagavan, the precision of my wisdom in regards to all phenomena is inconceivable. The clarity of my wisdom is inconceivable. The range of my wisdom is inconceivable. The elements of my wisdom are inconceivable. Lord Bhagavan, the application of my wisdom to objective fields is inconceivable. Lord Bhagavan, in this way, due to the fact that I perfectly seek out, perfectly and thoroughly investigate, perfectly and thoroughly search for, perfectly and completely observe, and perfectly comprehend all phenomena, Lord Bhagavan, I have come to be called ‘Samjñāya, the Supreme Commander of the Yakshas’.”

“Lord Bhagavan, in order to enhance the words of the monk who expounds the Dharma, I shall strongly inspire confidence in him. How? So that the monk who expounds the Dharma does not become physically fatigued, so that his sense faculties will be well, so that he will give to extreme joy, I shall always give glimmer and majesty to the hair-pores on the body of the monk who expounds the Dharma.” “And why will I do this? So as to benefit the sentient beings who have planted roots of virtue under hundreds of thousands of Buddhas, so that this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light will remain in the world for a long time and will not quickly fade away, and so that sentient beings will also come to listen to this Sovereign King of Sūtras, the Sublime Golden Light and acquire an inconceivable accumulation of wisdom, become endowed with insight, perfectly accomplish the accumulation of merit, experience the inconceivable happiness of gods and humans for billions of eons into the future, accompany the Tathāgatas, and in the future attain the unsurpassed, perfectly and completely manifest enlightenment of buddhahood, as well as to totally pacify all the suffering of the sentient beings born in the hells, the animal realms, and the world of Yama.”

“I shall generate power, strength, and great resilience in his body. I shall make the clarity of his wisdom inconceivable. I shall bring him mastery over mindfulness. I shall cause him to be exceedingly joyful.”

Then, Samjñāya the supreme commander of the yakshas spoke the following words:

“Lord Bhagavan, I have a dhārani-mantra, and out of heart-felt love for all sentient beings and a wish to benefit them, I myself shall intone this mantra before the Lord Bhagavan. The mantra is as follows:

NAMO BUDDHĀYA
NAMO DHARMĀYA
NAMO SAṂGHĀYA
NAMO BRAHMĀYA
NAMO INDRĀYA

BHAGAVAN SAṂJÑEYA SVĀHĀ

“If anyone upholds and retains this mantra, I will give them all the necessities of life, alms, clothes, flowers, fruits, wealth, jewels and so forth. Furthermore, even if someone wants such things such as conversations with young men and young women, or requires male servants, female servants, gold, silver, jewels, jewelry and so on, I shall bestow upon them each and every thing their heart desires. Because this awareness-mantra is imbued with great power and energy, whenever this secret mantra is recited, I will approach that person, and accomplish everything without obstruction.”

“In regards to the ritual for accomplishment of this secret mantra: First, in front of a painted image of the vast form of the Great Overlord of the Yakshas, Samjñāya, sixteen to twenty finger-breadths in height and brandishing a battle axe in hand, place four vases full of honey or liquid molasses on the four corners of a square mandala. Burn ointments, powders, and incense, and make an offering of flowers as well.”

“Then, in front of that mandala, feed a mixture of butter and mustard seed into the smokeless fire inside a dug-out fire pit for the burnt offerings. Reciting the mantra each time, make the burnt offerings on that hearth.”

“Burn 108 times in this way, and I shall manifestly show my body there. I shall ask what it is you want. The practitioner should then also voice their desires, and I shall grant them everything they wish for. Whether they wish for gold and silver, wish to find treasures, or wish for the divine sages, flying through the air, they will be attained.”

“Furthermore, they will attain the supernormal perceptions of the divine eye, knowledge of others’ minds and so on. They will have power over all sentient beings in accordance with their wishes, will sever the flow of all disturbing mental states, and attain complete liberation.”

Then, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror congratulated Samjñāya, the great general of the yakshas, saying:

“Well done! Well done! For the sake of the benefit and happiness of all sentient beings, and in order to thoroughly protect the sublime Dharma, you have spoken these words of secret mantra, and thus your merit has become immeasurable.”

FROM THE SOVEREIGN KING OF SŪTRAS, THE SUBLIME GOLDEN LIGHT, THIS WAS THE NINETEENTH CHAPTER, ‘THE LORD OF THE YAKSHAS, SAMJÑĀYA’.

The One Hundred and Eight Names of the Exalted Jambhala

In the Indian Language [Sanskrit]: Ārya Jambhala Nāma Ashtashataka [ārya-jambhala-nāma-ashtashataka]

HOMAGE TO THE EXALTED PROTECTOR FROM DETRIMENT.

[The Yaksha’s Question to Vajrapani:]

{The Yaksha asked Vajrapani, the Lord of Secrets:}

“Now then, the Yaksha Who Lives in Isolated Places,

The One Finely Adorned with Golds,

The One Utterly Beautified by Precious Gems,

The One Similar to an Intensely Burning Fire

Is active in the Braided Realm,

However, deeply saluting at the two honored feet

Of the Lord of Secrets, the Holder of the Vajra,

I ask something which arose during deep meditative absorption:

I too generate the Mind of Awakening.

And yet, when I see those persons whose wealth is scarce,

And those whose merit is feeble,

I am distressed by intense sorrow, O Lord of Secrets.”

[Vajrapani’s Response:]

These words were spoken by the Yaksha,

And the Bhagavān, the secret Lord of Secrets,

Overpowered with compassion, spoke the following:

“Listen well of the Secret One, the Protecting One,

The Glorious Protector from Detriment,

The Activator of Benefit for All Sentient Beings,

The Eliminator of Poverty’s Affliction,

The Ruler of All Wealth: His One Hundred and Eight Names

Dispel the faults and destructiveness of poverty,

And were spoken of by supreme Victorious Ones

As numerous as sand-grains in the River Ganges.

When the Buddha Surya was verbally teaching the Dharma

In the realm known as ‘Hundred Light Beams’,

I also deeply listened to it,

That which dispels poverty and is imbued with positive potential,

And it is this, which, through my insight,

To you, O striver for the benefit of all sentient beings,

I shall teach effectively:

You should concentrate and listen intensely.”

[The Benefits of the Names]

These One Hundred and Eights Names that I have conveyed

Of the greatness of the very embodiment of Protection from Detriment,

Act to subdue all negativity,

Clear away the disturbance of poverty,

Are the generator of abundance and good fortune,

Increase cattle, horses, and wealth,

And eradicate negative planets, stars, constellations, dreams,

And bad omens:

Thus, whether in a forest, or perchance a village,

A hermitage or else a mountain too,

Wherever the adept reads it, there,

Battles, enemies, and depression,

Snakes, fire, water, and the hosts of bandits and thieves,

Tigers, bears, and great fears,

Oceans which are difficult or excruciating to traverse,

And humans shall come to be powerfully pacified.

Lords of fire, gods of water,

Lords of death, lords of demons, gods of wind,

Wealth-giving gods, the glorious Kubera,

The sons of Manibhadra, and the yaksha general Five Games,

The pinnacle yakshas, yakshas of remote places,

And other gods and yakshas too

Will, without distraction, day and night,

Serve to protect, with intense joy.

Wherever this is read,

Elephants, horses, cattle,

Various kinds of crops,

And also fruit and flowers shall increase.

Human sickness and contagious illness,

And all those things which give rise to harm,

Will all be transformed into happiness and goodness,

And in particular there will be auspiciousness for children.

For those who do so, voracious ghosts, dragon elementals,

Parasitic goddesses, violent wraiths,

Sky-traversing fairies, centaur celestials,

And even demons will not do harm.

They will be freed from illness in its entirety,

And likewise happy and endowed with wealth,

And prosperous with children, relatives,

Glory and charity.

They will arise in regal excellent family,

Be born amidst great resources,

Have long life and resplendence,

And be without illness and far from plagues.

In all their lifetimes, they will remember their rebirths,

Be quick learners and retain what they hear,

Be imbued with the qualities of the bodhisattva,

And become good fortune itself.

Homage! Homage! Yaksha Lord!

Lord of Secrets, I pay homage to you,

And to the striver in taming the inappropriate,

Vajrapani, to you I bow.

One who is delightful and gentle in order to inspire sentient beings,

The renown of the son of Manibhadra

Pacifies the sickness of poverty:

Its powerful impartment has been spoken well.

Through just recollecting it

Humans will be liberated from poverty.

Others will not harm them and they will be protected,

Enemies too will not overpower them,

And will live on to be up to a hundred.

Assuredly they will quickly obtain

Even the precious divine elephant

And all those things worthy of sovereigns and sovereignty:

There is thus no doubt about the power of dominion, as well.

THE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT NAMES OF JAMBHALA ARE COMPLETE.

Black Jambhala

[Mantra]
Om Drum Svaha, Om Indrayani Mukham Bhramari Svaha

[Mantra]
Om Jambhala Jalendraye Vasudharini Svaha

He is the chief of the five Jambhalas and is the manifestation of Buddha Akshobhya. Black Jambhala has a powerful black body, naked and wrathful in a standing posture, and wears a snake necklace. He is shown standing over a human body, symbolizing the wrathful subduing of human ego and the elimination of greed. His right hand holds an endless Pot of Gems and his left hand holds a mongoose called Nehulay, which spues jewels from its mouth.

He is also known as Kubera . Those who chant his mantra will get wealth, happiness and fulfillment of wishes. Originated in ancient India. He manifested from the waters of a river and gave the transmission of generating wealth to a King whose kingdom was undergoing extreme financial difficulties during that time.

The beneficence of the Black Jambhala is that his doctrine is suitable for the poor, the lower classes and ascetics. If they practise his doctrine, they can elminate resentment, theft, diseases and other barriers and obtain more benefits. If a person’s mind is always virtuous, Black Jambhala will always take care of him/her.

In other words, Black Jambhala is the form that breaks through opposition, resentment, tension, faces everything head-on and gathers all karma from lowest to highest in order to transform it into wealth, happiness, and good functional conditions that benefit all beings.

The basis of practicing Black Jambhala, and any Jambhala in general, is Bodhicitta and the emphasis is on practising in daily life. To achieve the desired result, it is important for us to generate Bodhicitta and make offerings (visualized mental offerings, vows, auspicious aspirations and wishes for the good of all beings, offerings of light, water, flowers, etc) to the Triple Gems and to help sentient beings.

White Jambhala

Om Padma Krodha Arya Jambhala Hridaya Hum Phat

White Jambhala is the compassionate manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, born from his right eye. He sits on a snow lion and a mongoose in his left hand spits out precious diamonds and ornaments. White Jambhala has white colored body. He also holding a Wealth Banner in his left arm and a Gold Sword in his right. He can remove the suffering of poverty and sickness, purify non-virtuous karma and karmic obstacles, avert disaster and sickness, and evolve bodhicitta mind.

Yellow Jambhala

Om Jambhala Jalendraye Svaha

Yellow Jambhala is considered the most popular and enriching of the Wealth Gods. He is the emanation of Buddha Ratnasambhava. He can remove poverty within the six realms, increasing virtues, life span and wisdom. He is the guardian of light in Buddhism, a great charitable deity who grants fortune and protection.

Yellow Jambhala has yellow colored body & sits in the vajra position with his right leg panhandled, his right foot is above a snail and lotus flower, and his left leg is kinked. He has one face and two arms. His left hand holding a mongoose named Nehulay which spews precious jewels from its mouth. His right hand holding gems shaped fruit and leaf of lotus. Yellow Jambhala sits on a lotus, sun disk and moon disk.

The beneficence of the Yellow Jambhala is that his doctrine enables the follower to have good luck and Virtues, prolong his life, increase his intelligence and gain both material and spiritual benefits.

He protected the dharma and if anyone call his name, he will come and help the person. If one has trouble with finance or anything, one can chant his mantra and he will come and help. But one must have a bodhi mind and practice Buddhism properly to attain his blessings. One can also gain wealth, wisdom, intelligence and at last, attain Buddhahood! Yellow Jambhala sits on a lotus, sun and moon disk. He holds a mongoose in his left hand and from its mouth spews forth precious jewels.

Green Jambhala

Om Jambhala Jalenjaye Svaha

[and]

Om Karma Jambhala Ah Svaha

[and another mantra, separate from the previous two]

Om Jambhala Jalendraye Dhanam Medehi Hrih Dakini Jambhala Sambhara Svaha

Red Jambhala is the manifestation of Vajrasattva. Red Jambhala is the The God of Wealth, embracing the consort Vasudhara. This is the Red Jambhala, red in colour, he is adorned with a crown, jewel and gold ornaments and silk garments, embracing his consort Vasudhara (the heavenly mother of wealth, who is in charge of wealth in the human realm), seated imperially in the center of the multi-coloured lotus throne, steped on a white conch shell.

The Dharani of Ganapati’s Monkey Emanation

OṂ NAMO GAṆAPATI/ JAYA VARANE/ JIVANTAYE SVĀHĀ

When you continuously intone the recitation of this Heart-Mantra, right away [at those very times] you will find a great treasure of wealth. You will become equal in fortune to a Wheel Turning King of the Thousand-fold Universe. If you recite this Heart-Mantra many times, and then rub your eyes, then whoever you see will be brought under your influence [and magnetized].

Ganapati’s Exalted Heart-Dhārani

HOMAGE TO ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS! Thus have I heard: at one time, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror was in Rajagriha, on Vulture’s Peak Mountain, abiding together in one company with an enormous Sangha of fully-ordained monks.

Then, the Blessed One said to the Venerable Ananda:

“Retain this, the Heart of Ganapati! Those people who read this will accomplish all of their endeavors. All the aspirations they hold in their minds will be accomplished, as well. They will accomplish all of the secret mantras, too. All of their wealth and resources will become abundant. Without asking or searching, whatever food and riches they want will be found. For this, one must recite this mantra!”

“Ananda! If any son or daughter of noble spiritual lineage, fully-ordained monk, fully-ordained nun, layman, laywoman, or anyone else intones this Heart-Essence of the Lord of Gatherings every day, then that person will be endowed with bliss and happiness in this life. They will be endowed with riches and resources. The sufferings of poverty and destitution will not occur. They will be pleasing and delightful to all people. They will accomplish all of their endeavors, no matter what they are, and their aspirations as well. Both in this life and their next life too, they will not lack wealth and resources.” “Waking up daily early in the morning in one’s home, if this dhārani is chanted three or seven times, then one will retain what has been heard. All malevolent gods, harmful spirits, demons, and dakinis will not snatch away one’s radiance and luster. That person will be guarded and protected.” The Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror spoke thus, and the entire retinue, the whole universe with its gods, humans, demi-gods, and gandharvas rejoiced, and deeply praised what had been spoken by the Bhagavan, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror.

The Exalted Manibhadra’s Dhārani

HOMAGE TO THE THREE JEWELS!

Thus have I heard: at one time, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror was abiding in Shravasti in King Jetavana’s Grove, in the contemplative garden of Anathapindada. Then, the great general of the yakshas, Manibhadraputra, went up to the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, and having gone there, he bowed his head at the feet of the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, and sat down to one side. Having sat down to one side, the great general of the yakshas Manibhadraputra spoke the following words to the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror:

“Venerable Sir, if any fully-ordained monks, fully-ordained nuns, laymen, laywomen, or anyone else recites this heart-essence every day during the three parts of the day, then I will always follow after that person, do everything that person needs, seek out food, riches, gold, jewels, grain, and silver for them, accomplish all of their aims, put all sentient beings under their power, instantaneously accomplish all the various activities of that person, and they will be apart from association with depravity.”
