Chinese : Dabei shenzhou xinjing


<p style='text-align: justify;'>This is an excerpt from the Great Compassion Mantra (Nilakantha Dharani), a Mahayana Buddhist chant or incantation which one would memorise and recite for protective reasons. While this item is written in Chinese characters, the characters don’t make any ‘sense’ as grammatical Chinese sentences. Rather, they phonetically transliterate Sanskrit words. In other words, they are used for their phonetic value, and not for their meaning. </p>
