Hello,

Thank you for the clarification, I wonder whether the two variations of the mantra of Wangze are different pronounciations of his mantra, or are they two difference mantras?

    Hello Ken,

    It’s nice to see you asking more questions here. They are both actually the same mantra but with slight variations, which may be due to the fact that they were passed down through different practice lineages. Both mantras are equally as powerful in invoking upon the enlightened energies of Wangze. For our own practice purposes, we follow the variation as taught to us by our guru. If you have a guru, then you should consult him/her and practice according to which mantra they teach you. If you have a connection with the guru, the blessings of the mantra and practice flow through the guru, so it would be better to follow the mantra they teach.

    For us here, our guru is His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, who has taught us the mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA WANGSHA GURU OM. Therefore this is the variation that we use in our practice.

    If you do not have a guru, you can follow whichever variation you find more affinity with during your Wangze practice. I hope this helps. Thank you.
