‚You have taught many methods to counter all this, but those beings of the future will have no time
to practice them. Even if, occasionally, there are those who wish to practice, they will be beset withpowerful obstacles. Beings will not agree amongst themselves and supplies and necessities will beinadequate. Evil times such as these will be extremely difficult to overcome.
‚If, in such a period, they were to base themselves solely upon your means of accomplishment which
is the Vajra Guru Mantra, what sort of benefit would there be? For the benefit of those weak
beings of the future I humbly beg you tell us.‛
The Great Master then spoke:
‚What you have said there, my faithful daughter, is perfectly true. It will certainly bring both
temporary and ultimate benefit for sentient beings during such future times. Though I have concealedmany earth treasures, water treasures, rock treasures, sky treasures and so on, all containinginnumerable pith instructions and means of attainment, during that evil time it will be extremelydifficult to bring together the causes and conditions of the skilful means of a destined disciple
a truesign, indeed, that the merit of sentient beings is exhausted.
‚However, if, at such a time, a yogin or yogini main
taining their tantric commitments, a monk or nunwho faithfully keep their vows, a devout layman, perfectly qualified female practitioner or someonelike this, dwelling in the vast, open
minded attitude of enlightenment, should recite this essence ofthe Vajra Guru in a great place of pilgrimage, a monastery, on the peak of a great mountain, the banksof great river or in the uplands and lowlands inhabited by gods, demons and evil spirits, a hundredtimes, a thousand times, ten thousand, a hundred thousand, ten million or a hundred million timesand so on, as many as they can, the resulting power and benefit will be inconceivable. All disease,famine, conflict, war, crop
failure, inauspicious signs and evil omens throughout that land in alldirections will be reversed and there will be timely rains, abundant crops, thriving cattle, and theentire region will flourish.
‚In this life, in future lives and in the dangerous passageway of the
they will meet with meagain and again, the best of them in reality, the middling in visions and even the lowliest in dream,and, having achieved the levels and paths, will certainly be reborn among the ranks of male andfemale holders of pure awareness in the realm of Chamaradvipa.
‚Even a single uninterrupted repetiti
on of one hundred will make them pleasing in the eyes of othersand they will effortlessly obtain food, wealth and prosperity. With a thousand or ten thousandrepetitions, with their splendour they will subdue the minds of others and attain unhindered spiritualenergy and power. If they recite it a hundred thousand or ten million times they will bring all threeworlds under their control, subjugate the three realms of existence, bind gods and demons as theirservants and spontaneously realise any of the four enlightened activities they wish to accomplish thusattaining the power to bring immeasurable benefit to all sentient beings in whichever way they wish.
‚If they can recite as many as thirty or seventy million and the like, indivisibly one with me they
willnever be separated from the buddhas of the three times and the eight classes of gods and spirits willobey their orders, praise their words and accomplish whatever tasks they entrust them.
‚The very best will attain the rainbow body, ‘mother’ and ‘son’ luminosities will meet and merge for
the middling ones at the moment of death, and even for the least accomplished, all perceptions will be liberated into their natural condition on seeing my face in the intermediate state and they will bereborn in the
realm of Chamaradvipa and accomplish infinite benefit for sentient beings.‛
