The Cintamani Chakra Dharani Sutra
(This sutra is originated from Maha-padma-vajra-samaya-adhiṣṭhāna-guhya-na-abavarana-sutra)
Chapter 1: Prelude
As I heard, at one time the Buddha was at Mount Kusinara (雞喇斯山) together with uncountable numbers of bodhisattvas complete. At that time Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva rose from his seat and tidied his garment and then kneeled for a prolonged time while making the anjali mudra (合掌) and said to the Buddha:
“Blessed One, I have maha-padma-kuta-vajra-guhya-na-abavarana-cintamani-chakra-dharani-samaya (大蓮華峯金剛祕密無障礙如意輪陀羅尼明三昧耶) that can satisfy all superb fortunate karma; whatever one wishes shall attain cintamani-siddhi.
May the Buddha allow me to speak with great compassion and I shall uphold the magical power of the Buddha; and for the benefit of all sentient beings that I am willing to speak.
Blessed One, this dharani mantra possesses victorious power as if the wish-fulfilling tree. It is the great precious rain of magicians; whatever they wish shall be given. Such is the mani jewel. It can fulfill all supreme wishes of all sentient beings.
It is my only hope that the Buddha empowers (me) with compassion.”
At that time, the Buddha told Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva and said:
“It is very kind of you because of great compassion, asking on behalf of sentient beings. I have performed the empowerment and listening to you without any obstacles. So speak and reveal this Cintamani-chakra-dharani-mantra.”
Then the Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva bestowed with the Buddha’s order and retinues, he immediately stood up with anjali mudra and performed prostration respectfully. After he encircled the Buddha three circles and then returned to his own seat. With a joyful heart, he looked at the assembled crowed in pleasure and smiling; and he spoken the fundamental dharani as below:
Namo ratnatrayaya (1). Namo arya (2) avalokitesvaraya (3). Bodhisattvaya (4) mahasattvaya (5) mahakarunikaya (6). Tadyatah (7): om (8) cakra mirati cintamani (9) patumi (10) ruru (11) tista (12) jvala (13) akalisaya (14) hum (15) phat (16) svaha (17)
(Page 1 of 15)
Om (1) patuma (2) cintamani (3) maha jvala (4) hum (5)
Om (1) jvala patumi (2) hum (3)
At this point, when the Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva said this dharani, the earth, mountains and jungles shook six times. All devapura (天宮), naga-bhavana (龍宮), yaksapura (藥叉宮), raksapura (羅剎宮), ghandarvapura (乾闥婆宮), asarupura (阿素落宮), kinarapura (緊那羅宮) and maharagapura (摩呼羅伽宮) all experienced major quakes.
Various evil spirits of great power such as vinayaka, the obstacle creators trembled with great fear. Palaces of demons all burnt by great fire. The demonic kings and retinues all give rise to great fear. All low down naga-kanya (龍女), yaksa-kanya (藥叉女), raksa-kanya, ghandarva-kanya, asaru-kanya, garuda-kanda, kinara-kanya, maharaga-kanya all became suffocated and laid lamely on the ground. All doors of hell opened up automatically. All sinful sentient beings within were liberated and they all being reborn into heaven and enjoyed supreme pleasure.
Then various devas each holding various wonderful heavenly benzoin, gośīrsa-candana (牛頭栴檀), agarwood (沈水) powder incenses, incense pastes and burning incense; also unique and wonderful heavenly flowers. Also various precious necklaces, hairpins, pendants, rings, armlets, precious canopies, precious crowns, deva garment and various decorative items rained down from the sky as offerings to the Buddha and the assembly.
Various colorful clouds filled the sky and heavenly music emitted automatically in the air and unbelievable harmonious and elegant voices as offerings to the Buddha. Whoever hears these sounds would stay with the force of compassion and endurance (慈忍力). All such magical manifestations are in fact due to the magical powers of Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva-guhya-cintamani-cakra-dharani-mantra.
At this time, the Buddha emitted wonderful kalavinka (迦陵頻伽) type of wonderful Sanskrit-nadam (梵聲) praising Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva with this profound and wonderful kata (偈):
It is very kind of this virtuous man because you can pity all sentient beings.
You spoke this great beneficial cintamani-dharani to assist sentient beings.
You enable believers purified their sins, delivered them from three realms and hence attain enlightenment.
(Page 2 of 15)
Anyone who follows the dharma practice, then whatever wishes shall be granted this life and hereafter.
After the Buddha has completed the kata, he further told Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva:
“Virtuous man, you should repeat this magical powerful dharani mantra and the essence of practising the ritual so that these sentient beings shall be benefited greately.”
Chapter 2: Cintamani Cakra Dharani Removing Karmic Obstacles
At this time, Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva again said to the Buddha:
“If there are bhikshu, bhikshuni, upasaka, upasika, kumara, kumara who wishes to beg for great merit this life, he/she should be diligent days and nights according to this Cintamani-cakra-dharani-mantra without having to choose an auspicious date. It is also needless to fast for one day or two. Also no need to take bath and built an altar. He/she only needs to wear ordinary clothing and cleanse with mantric water and that he/she can consume vegetarian food as usual and perform the siddhi ritual.
The mantri should sit with lotus asana facing east in a clean room day and night. He/she should visualize Avalokitesvara in front of him/her with perfect facial features as if of rising sun that emits great light and sitting in a lotus flower. The sadhaka should perform sadhana one heartedly and burns agarwood incense as offerings. He/she should perform prostrations respectfully according to his/her wish.
Fragrant flower offerings should not cease. Six times a day and each time he/she should recite mantra for 1,080 times continuously. The sadhaka should recite a number of 3 lakh times (1 lakh = 100,000).
He/she should stay concentrated in yoga-dharma-nidhyāna (瑜伽觀法/visualization) and recites sadhana. Then all five serious sins (五無間罪) of past and present and other extremely serious karma obstacles shall automatically be removed. The person shall experience various very auspicious dreams. One should know this is the sign of sins diminishing. It is the protection of Avalokitesvara and from this kusala-mula (善根) hundreds and thousands of karma (事業) shall all attain siddhi with one hearted mantra recitation.
All magical powers of mantra shall not be able to achieve the magical power of this cintamani-cakra-dharani-mantra. This is the reason that this dharani if anyone can believe and practise it, then all 4 heavy sins (四重), 5 rebilious sins (五逆) and dasa-kusala (十惡) bad karma; those who bear sins that ought to fall into Avici Hell (阿毘地獄) shall have the sins removed.
If a person suffers from heat related illnesses, wind illnesses, anthracnose;anthrax (癀病), sputum (痰病), poisons and curses (蠱毒厭禱), sore (疔瘡), boils (疥), scabies (癩), epilepsy (癲), wind, itchy, head, nose, eyes, ears, lips, tongue, teeth, throat, chest, armpits, heart, stomach, waist, back, limbs related illnesses, various disasters, spiritual issues for one day, two days, three days, four days until seven days; all shall be cured after performing the sadhana.
All yaksa, raksa, vinayaka and evil spirits shall not be able to harm this person. In addition, knives, wars, water, fire, strong wind, thunder, hail, the king, robbers and enemies shall not harm him/her. All ugly appearances and lack of fortune karma, mutation of evil stars (惡星變怪) shall automatically be destroyed. Poisonous snakes (蚖), snakes, viper (蝮), lizards, spiders, lions, tigers, wolves and all fierce animals shall not be able to harm the said person.
If there are military conflicts and law suits, due to the mantra accomplishments all shall be able to be liberated. If one always recite this dharani between 3am to 5 am (五更) for 1,080 times, all of the matters mentioned above shall be liberated, free and easy.
If one can recites this dharani 6 times a day for 1,080 times each time, then the Avalokitesvara shall appear in his/her dreams. He shall come to the person and say: “Virtuous man/woman, please don’t be afraid. Whatever you wish shall be granted.”
Or the person may see Amitabah or the Sukhavati (極樂世界); stately matters concerning palaces and penthouses. Or the person may see congregation of bodhisattvas of Sukhavati. Or it is that buddhas and bodhisattvas of 10 directions that he/she may see. Or it is possible that the person sees Avalokitesvara in the 7 jewel palace at Mount Potalaka (補陀落山). Or the person may see his/her body being purified inside and out. Or the person may see that the kings and ministers make offerings respectfully to him/her. Or he/she may see that all of his/her pass sins being removed.
One should know that this person shall not be reborn viviparous (胎生) but he/she shall be born as the transformation of a lotus (蓮花化生/padma-aupapādaka) with pleasant appearances. He/she shall wear deva garment with ornaments. He/she shall be bestowed with pūrvanivāsānusmṛtijñāna (宿命智) until he/she attains enlightenment. This person shall not fall into three evil realms (三惡道) and he/she shall always be accompanied by buddhas and bodhisattvas and he/she shall be born in avaivartika-bhūmi (不退地/non-retractable ground).
Chapter 3: Cintamani Cakra Dharani Sadhana Acara
Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva again told the Buddha:
“Blessed One, this guhya-cintamani-cakra-dharani contains two dharma purposes: the first is of this world and the second is for the other world. The so-called (worldly dharma is) siddhi of sadhana for supreme wish fulfillment, taming of sentient beings (攝化有情) and accumulation of fortunes, wealth and also victorious power. On the other hand, the out-of-this-world dharma means punya (福德/blessed virtues), wisdom, moksa (解/enlightenment), sambhara (資糧), alaṃkāraka (莊嚴/adornment), increase in compassion, helping the suffering sentient beings, beloved by public and etc.
The secret of this sutra is that one must practise in secrecy. It should not be revealed to the ignorance. If one attain siddhi with this guhya-samaya (祕密三昧耶祕密三昧耶) then it is best just to keep it to oneself and not speaking out loud. If one indeed (wish to) accomplish this supreme dharani dharma, he/she should think of Avalokitesvara with perfect features as if morning rising sun shining with bright light one heartedly in whatever places (clean or otherwise) or during eating or otherwise. Then he/she should recite the dharani without wondering mind. If one performs recitation consistently without making mistakes then Avalokitesvara shall appear his golden body.
(Page 3 of 15)
(Avalokitesvara) removes defilements and then empowers (the mantri) with magical power so that whatever he/she wished for shall be fulfilled. He/she shall attain various magical powers, anda-dana (安怛陀那) method, cintamani method, ageless medicine method (住年藥法), precious jewel rain method (雨寶雨法), discovery of hidden treasure method, entering asaru cave method, shape shifting method and various medicine methods. Also vajra method (杵法), vase method (瓶法) and all worldly various entertainment methods shall be attained.
If there are kings, queens, concubines, princes, princesses, ministers, brahmana, satria, vaisya (毘舍), sudra (首陀), bhiksu (比丘), men, women, kumara, kumara or follower of external paths (外道); whoever willing to be subdued under this dharma and upholds it must know the number of recitations.
When a king performs sadhana, in 7 days and 6 times a day, he need to recite 1,080 times each time.
If a concubine performs sadhana, then she should recite 900 times for each recitation. A prince should recite 800 times, a princess should recite 700 times, a minister should recite 600 times, a brahmana should recite 500 times, a satria should recite 400 times. If the person is a vaisya, then he/should recite 300 times. A shudra should recite 200 times; a bhiksu should recite 108 times. A common man should recite 106 times and a common woman should recite 103 times. A boy should recite 100 times and a girl should recite 90 times.
The above is known as ‘recitation method’ (課法). All supreme matters shall be accomplished by reciting mantra and calling name: rich, famous, fortune, happiness, properties, money, grains, silk, slaves, maids, elephants, horses. All matters shall increase according to one’s wish.
The mantri should start from later night (後夜, 2am-6am) until dawn and the recitation should be 1,080 times continuously then unlimited affairs shall be accomplished. Men and women on heaven and earth shall come speedily as wind to seek refuge and praise (the mantri).
If one wishes to see Avalokitesvara materialize and grant wishes, then he/she should bath and clean his/her body and then use perfume powder to rub his/her body. He/she should always change into clean clothing and eat three white foods (三白食).
The mantri should prepare incense, flowers, perfumes, three white drinks and foods, fruits (果蓏) as offerings according to his/her ability. Agarwood, white cendana incenses etc should be mixed with butter and honey. The mantri should be seated in lotus asana facing east while visualizing Avalokitesvara and recites cintamani-cakra-dharani. After one recitation, a portion of the mixture is burnt for a total of 100,000 times.

The vajra-grabha-graha-bodhisattva shall appear. He shall view mantri as if his own beloved son and bestow the mantri with all dharani ritual implements.

Then all great magicians shall automatically come to the person each holding mantra rituals teaching the mantri.

With once mantra recitation, calling Indra and Brahma-deva-raja once and burning a portion of material for a total of 7 days and nights. Then Indra, Brahma-deva-raja and various deva shall show themselves to preach dharma and console the mantri; and also grant him/her wishes while providing protection.

Since the mantri obtain great fortune and all wishes granted, he/she who is bestowed with these auspicious willfulness shall not reveal these to others simply. Otherwise magical powers bestowed to him/her shall fade forever.
Blessed One, this Cintamani Cakra dharani, mantra and mudra have magical powers and they are extremely rare. Those clean or not clean that can become sentient beings and that they can calm their minds into the ocean of dharma and enter various samaya; all those shall be able to achieve enlightenment with their magical plays. Because of this hetu-pratyaya (因緣/cause), I use great compassion to guide sentient beings to maturity. It is my hope that the Buddha gives adhiṣṭhāna (加持), coverage and protection.”
Chapter 10: The Urge Of Cintamani Cakra Dharani Sutra
At this time, the Buddha praised Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva:
“It is very kind of you the one with great compassion. You can skillfully preach this Cintamani Cakra Dharani Mantra. This dharma in Jambudvīpa (贍部洲) shall benefit and mature bodhi-kusala-mula (菩提善根) of all sentient beings. If sentient beings give adhimukticaryābhūmiḥi (發心/decided) to this Cintamani Cakra Dharani Mantra, and that they can recite and uphold it unceasingly; then in this life they shall attain the rūpa-darśana-mauna-siddhah-chaya-ṛddhi-vikrīḍita-prajna-samaya (見色寂圓照神通遊戲智三昧耶). Not only that they shall obtain great merits this life, they too shall obtain great merits in the next life. Hence all 8 division beings (天龍八部) should all respect, protect and serve (this dharma) as if serving Agni.
I as the holder of this mantra urge you so that you must always be diligent in protecting and reciting this mantra and obtain real results. I am already rejoicing seeing you the believers in person.”
Then Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva-maha-sattva said to the Buddha:
“Since immeasurable number of kalpas, I depended on the power of great compassions embracing the teaching of Buddha to urge sentient beings. I always follow and support; and bestow efficacies. Only the Buddha can prove for the benefits of sentient beings that I speak this Cintamani Cakra Dharani mantra. If a beholder performs the sadhana as his/her practice, it is not difficult that his/her wishes fulfilled.
It is according the power of the Buddha that I have made this effort to save sentient beings from sorrow.
After the Arya-Avalokitesvara-buddhisattva-maha-sattva finished mentioning this sutra, the public were all extremely joyful and they all believed in and upholding this practice.
