This awe-inspiring mantra was bestowed by Sakyamuni Buddha as recorded in Section 20 of the Buddha Expounding on the Ocean Dragon King Sutra (Fo Shuo Hai Long Wang Jing). Not long ago some Polish Buddhists were inquiring about this mantra; therefore, Stanley Lam searched for it and copied it for me. This mantra consists of meaningful expressions, and hence I am interested in translating it into English so that more Buddhists could practice it and benefit from such a practice. The original mantra is continuous without breaking into sections. In order to facilitate understanding and memorization, I have rendered the text into 10 consecutive lines.
Earlier today I mailed one box of books to a Buddhist library in Romania, and in the afternoon I mailed two boxes of books to a Buddhist library in Arizona. After that the muscle in my left upper leg felt some pain. However, this evening as soon as I started preparing for this translation the uneasy feeling just vanished. Thanks to Buddha's blessing through this mantra.
