Day 141 – The mantra for purifying mind

The Mantra for Purifying Mind

I’ll be upright and sincere in my behavior.

정법계진언 淨法界眞言

진정 올바른 행을 하리다.

A little short, isn’t it?! If you want to purify your mind, raise this intention, and try to work at being upright and sincere in how you approach things. Easy, right? 🙂

This section of The Thousand Hands Sutra has a number of these small sections, with just one or two short pieces to them. The title will be in italics, with the mantra itself in regular bold text. The English translations of the titles are from the regular Korean ceremony book, and is Daehaeng Sunim’s explanation of the meaning of the title. We could have translated the original Chinese characters, but her explanations were more interesting, and probably more useful as well.
