Mantra : Om Ara Pa Za Na Di
Syllable A guides to the ultimate insight that the essence of all things is unproduced.
Syllable RA guides to the ultimate insight that all things are free and pure of defilements.
Syllable PA guides to the ultimate insight that all dharmas have been „expounded in the ultimate sense.”
Syllable CA guides to the ultimate insight that the arising and ceasing of things cannot be apprehended because in ultimate reality there is no arising or ceasing (of anything).
Syllable NA guides to the ultimate insight that although the names for things change the nature of things behind their names cannot be gained or lost.
The last syllable DHIH of the mantra does have a meaning, though this is not always the case with mantra sounds. This potent syllable has an extremely ancient connection with the manifestation of the form using sacred vibration or sound. This syllable also appears in the Rig Veda (Vedic Sanskrit hymns) where it stands for vision such as that preceding an intentional act of generation or creation.
