📷About Mañjushri-Nama-Samgiti

The Mañjushri-Nama-Samgiti (Chanting the Names of Mañjushri) is a tantra of the nondual (advaya) class, along with tantras such as the Kalachakra Tantra. Buddha taught the Nama-Samgiti to his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to enlightenment. Although it is a short text of only 167 verses, it summarizes all the Buddha’s teachings. As the Buddha said,

“It is the chief clarification of words. It is the nondual reality. Therefore, all sentient beings should definitely study and recite the Mañjushri-Nama-Samgiti.”

Even though Nama-Samgiti is a tantric text, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo explained that it may also be recited by “beginners who do not practice the profound yoga … who wish to recite the tantra as a praise to Mañjushri’s formidable qualities.”

When he was teaching the Madhyamakavatara in France in 1996, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche read this text as an auspicious offering and praise. He said. “This is praised as being the root of all the tantras. It is like a Buddhist Bhagavad Gita. As I read, you should pray to be born as Mañjushri’s assistant, as his disciple, when he attains enlightenment. He is supposedly the last buddha that will be enlightened during this kalpa. It is also said that he was the first buddha of this kalpa.”

  1. International Institute for contemporary Buddhist Studies :


The Mañjuśrī-Nāma-Saṃgīti (Tibetan: འཇམ་དཔལ་མཚན་བརྗོད, Wylie: ‘jam dpal mtshan brjod) (hereafter, Nama-samgiti) is considered amongst the most advanced teachings given by the Shakyamuni Buddha. It represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings, being a tantra of the nondual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

The Nama-samgiti was preached by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them into buddhahood. The essence of the Nama-samgiti is that Manjushri bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Nama-samgiti is a short text, only circa 160 verses and a prose section. It is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajñāpāramitā Sutras or the endless ocean of tantras such as manjushri-mula-kalpa and the mountainous Hinayana teachings and sea of sundry extra-canonical works. And yet, the Nama-samgiti contains all of the Buddha’s dharmas. It summarizes everything he taught. As Shakyamuni Buddha says of the Nama-samgiti, it is “the chief clarification of words”.[citation needed] It is the “nondual reality”.[citation needed] Therefore, all sentient beings should definitely study and recite the manjushri-nama-samgiti.
