Chanting Mysticism



In the Chinese Mahayana Practice, there is this ritual of invoking blessed water through recitation of the Great Compassion Mantra.

This mantra is closely related to the popular Bodhisattva of Compassion. Kuan Yin.

The blessed water is being drank by devotees to seek blessing or given to the sick .or anyone suffering from spiritual disturbance.


The person invoking and consuming the water must have faith. (The mind plays an important role)

The person invoking the blessed water should be someone with compassion.

That person should not have committed grave faults such as killings etc. Basically, someone who observe the Buddhist precepts.

How to invoke the blessed water.

Prepare a glass of clear water

Step 1 – Recite refuge prayer

Step 2 – Invoke the blessing of Bodhisattva of compassion, Guanyin by thinking about this Bodhisattva and praying for blessing

Step 3 – recite the great compassion mantra in front of the water

The water can be consumed.

Side note

There was study conducted by a Japanese researchers on the power of prayers on water. He tried to see if there’s any effect on the water by using modern technology.

Here’s a link.


My Buddhist name is Ratna Jamyang Puntsog. I first encountered Buddhism in this life when I was 12. Formally took ceremonial refuge in the triple gem when I was 19. I believe the different spiritual methods were taught by Buddha to suit various beings who each have their own unique characteristic. The various sects and practices that arose are just a naming convention invented by disciples out of communication necessity. Had read and studied different forms of Buddhism. Volunteered in Buddhist organization. Until it last, I hope to share my views on Buddhism and find like minded practitioners around the world. May we practice Buddha's instruction together and connect through cyber space!
