Mantras for the Three Holy Ones
 by Dale Goodyear 2011d_good_year@hotmail.com
The Three Holy Ones of the
 Flower Ornament Sutra
are the Buddha Vairocana, and his BodhisattvasManjushri and Samantabhadra.Vairocana represents BUDDHA, Manjushri DHARMA, and Samantabhadra SANGHA. In addition,Vairocana focuses the
 Dharmakaya
, Manjushri the
Sambhogakaya
, and Samantabhadra the
 Nirmanakaya
, which are the three "Bodies" or "Vehicles" of Buddhahood.I have spoken in another article how Manjushri rules what the Chinese call the "Upper Dan Tian" (or "Elixir Field"); Vairocana the "Middle Dan Tian"; and Samantabhadra the "Lower Dan Tian."The Upper Elixir Field includes the crown, 3rd eye, and throat chakras.The Middle Elixir Field has the 12-petaled heart chakra, and also the 8-petaled inner chamber of theheart, and finally the central chakra for the Dhyani Buddhas--
three
chakras in all.The Lower Elixir Field contains the solar plexus, "seat-of-the-soul", and root chakras.We have the mantra for Samantabhadra:
Om Samantabhadra Om
And we have the one for Vairocana:
Om Vairocana Om
So let's invoke Manjushri in the same manner:
Om Manjushri Om
Manjushri has other mantras, but this one is both appropriate and potent, because it sounds his mostcommon Name and because it ends with the
OM 
 
syllable of his Buddha, Vairocana. It is also a mantravery easy to learn and teach to others! Notice the number of syllables in these mantras:
7
for Samantabhadra's mantra,
6
for Vairocana's, and
5
for Manjushri's.If we would like to invoke all Three Holy Ones in a single mantra, we can say:
Om Vairocana Manjushri Samantabhadra Om
