White Dzambhala (or Jambhala) Mantra – Lyrics:
„Om Padma Krodha Arya Jambhala Hridaya Hum Phat.”
The White Jambhala is said to be the manifestation of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (a Bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas).
He can remove the suffering of sickness and poverty, purify non-virtuous karma and karmic obstacles, avert sickness and disaster, and evolve the enlightenment mind – Bodhicitta (His spiritual energy in the form of sound, helps to transform the mind).
Bodhicitta (“enlightenment-mind”) is a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment motivated by great compassion for all sentient beings, accompanied by a falling away of the attachment to the illusion of an inherently existing self.
He is wrathful in appearance he is adorned with jewel ornaments and silks. He sits on a snow lion and holds a mongoose (which in ancient India stood as an omen of good things to come) in his left hand that spits out precious gems for the poor and needy to collect.
He holds a fruit in his right hand to signify that if we follow his practice, we can bear the fruits of our efforts to gain spiritual enlightenment and attainments. He is said to be able to stop suffering and to dispel negative karma. Reciting this mantra can also bring wealth, abundance, avert disaster, and give you good health.
This practice encourages good fortune for the sangha as well as all individual Dharma practitioners, in order to accomplish greater generosity and all virtuous aims. In addition, He helps dharma practitioners to have a stable life and be free from worries while practicing dharma.
„The purpose of practicing Dzambhala is to receive everything required to practice Dharma; to benefit all other sentient beings greatly by relieving their poverty, liberating them from suffering, giving them whatever they need to practice Dharma.” – quote by Lama Zopa Rinpoche
The best way to request help from the White Dzambhala is by making continuous water offerings to Him.
If possible, do also try to simultaneously chant the mantra, and then the practice will be extremely powerful. Also, keeping an image or statue of Him, or giving a Jambhala statue away as a gift is beneficial to anyone, anywhere.
