Continuing the Mantra
We accomplished our goal of 1.8 million mantras in June 2016. However, you can still continue to recite and report your Ksitigarbha mantras. Thank you.

Tip: once you click through to the Mantra Report Form, you can save that link for future reference (bookmark, favorite).


Motivation for the Practice
Please motivate at the beginning that your Kshitigarbha practice is not just for the pacification of the earthquake but to free all sentient beings from oceans of samsaric suffering, to bring the numberless sentient beings from each realm to full enlightenment. To do this, you need to achieve enlightenment. Therefore you need to purify negative karma and especially the two obscurations and collect extensive merits, in order to have all the realizations on the path to enlightenment. Therefore you are going to do the practice and do it not only for the earthquakes in California and Nepal but for all earthquakes in the world.

Notes on the mantra recitation:
  • Mantras should be recited. It can't be just reading with your eyes or mind. The mouth, lips, and tongue need to be moving like they would when reciting out loud. It is sadi that mantra recitation should be loud enough for you to hear but not so loud that others can hear. Generally in group practice, we have tended to whisper.
  • It is more important to do it slowly and properly, than fast and make mistakes.
