B lack Manjushri is the wrathful healing form of Manjushri that helps us to heal our deep inner negative emotions and mental suffering that arise due to sickness or problems; it is also a powerful antidote against the harm and disturbances caused by negative astrological influences. It helps us to confront and deal with the negative emotions, such as anger, depression, fear and denial, which arise when we are challenged by such diseases or when we are confronted with problems in our daily life.
This practice also enables us to purify astrological mistakes that happen, for example, when we perform marriage or cremation ceremonies or cut down trees on astrologically inauspicious days. It gives us the opportunity to stop our energy flowing, at the cause of astrological influences, into the wrong path. In fact, through the recitation of Black Manjushri mantras we protect ourselves from inauspicious and malevolent astrological elements, caused by conjunctions, transits, oppositions, eclipses, comets and other celestial phenomena that could result in sicknesses, accidents, loss of property, social problems and discouraging life experiences.
Completing this practice also stops the harm of black magic and protects us from the interferences of spirits such as nagas who cause plagues, leprosy, possessions and contagious viral epidemics. Black Manjushri protects us from the four maras that hinder our spiritual practice and success, and halts the negative actions of all malefic beings and geg spirits that obstruct the attainment of long-life.
This practice stops the superstitious and fearful projections we create, for example when we walk alone in the dark, as well as those relating to digging the earth, cutting trees and moving rocks where nagas abide. This practice is most effective when completed daily before sunrise. We should sit facing the east in the cross-legged lotus posture. Following a vegetarian diet, avoiding strong alcohol drinks, garlic, onions and sesame all strengthen this practice. However, if it is not possible for us to follow these indications we should do the practice whenever possible and however we feel comfortable.
Sitting in the vajra posture we begin by visualizing that our gross physical body, composed of flesh, organs and bones, gradually melts into light until we are left with only a holographic image that sparkles like a rainbow. At this point we make a vajra fist with our left hand and place it under our right armpit. With our right hand we make a vajra fist and extending the right middle finger, placing the index finger on top of it, we gently block the left nostril.
Everything becomes the same nature as emptiness. The lotus, wind and fire mandalas contain the essences of the five elements. These essences absorb into space. I am in a very wrathful aspect with one face and two arms. My right leg is bent and my left leg is outstretched. In my right hand with a wrathful mudra I hold the wisdom sword that eliminates all interferences, and in my left hand I hold the emanation scripture of the Kadampas and the Prajnaparamita sutra at my heart.
Half my red hair is knotted at my crown, the other half falls on my shoulders. I have a big belly and tiger skin loincloth. I wear various wrathful bone ornaments such as a crown of five skulls and a necklace of fifty freshly cut heads. I am surrounded by fiercely blazing flames of wisdom. My root guru is above my crown in the form of Amoghasiddhi, who embodies the entire lineage. At this point we should meditate on emptiness of phenomenon, self and others, based on the method we are familiar with such as the Heart Sutra or dependent origination.
After we have repeated for as many times as possible the essence mantra and meditated on emptiness we can repeat the special essence mantra that helps to stabilize and give extra power to our practice. To complete a traditional Black Manjushri retreat we have to recite , essence mantras and 10, action mantras. We should keep in mind when beginning this part of the practice that the more mantras we manage to recite the more effective the exercises will be.
We should also remember that to make the following seven exercises work well we should complete them with the Mahayana attitudes of compassion and wisdom. Flame-like lights radiate out from our hearts, burning up all our emotional problems, mind pollution, interferences and karmic obstacles that cause sickness and interferences to ourselves, other beings and the environment.
After repeating the essence and action mantras as many times as possible, we should join our thumb to the top joint of the ring finger on each hand and then blow on the tip of the ring finger. Then we should rub the tips of these fingers on the soles of our feet and in the armpits. If we find in these places a black substance then we should put it on the nine entrances to the auric body listed beneath whilst repeating the action mantra.
If we do not find a black substance we should imagine one. We now envisage a suit of vajra armor under our skin that protects us from any contagious diseases or pollution entering our body.
Soles of the two feet 2. Anus 3. Urethra 4. Navel 5. Mouth 6. Nose 7. Two Eyes 8. Two Ears 9. With our hands joined together, above the crown of the head, in the prostration mudra we click our tongue against the top palate of our mouth and clap our hands together three times. Then we recite the action mantra. Visualizing our self in the aspect of Black Manjushri, we have to sit with our knees brought up to our chest with our arms wrapped around them, we then place the big toe of our right foot over the big toe of our left foot.
Keeping this posture we should press down and trap all interferences under our feet causing them to become weaker and powerless.
With a container of water placed in front of us, visualizing our self in the aspect of Black Manjushri, we imagine nectar radiating from the letter HUNG at our heart. This nectar flows with our breath and the special qualities are transferred to the water when we blow on it. The water transforms into nectar. Finally, Black Manjushri dissolves into the water, making it so powerful that those who drink it are purified of their obscurations and sicknesses caused by negative karma and physical health problems improve.
Drink the healing water and recite the action mantra before blowing on our mala. Then massage, outwardly towards the extremities, the affected limbs and joints. When tiny wounds appear on the extremities it is a sign that we are healed. To heal this condition we should also try to avoid eating meat and consuming strong alcoholic drinks. Either when awakening from a bad dream or nightmare, or if possible during the dream, we should visualize our self as Black Manjushri who emanates wisdom fires that burn up the dream enemy or negative feelings.
By this virtue may I quickly attain the enlightened experience of Black Manjushri and lead all sentient beings without exception to that ground. May the precious, healthy and happy mind of peace, which is not yet born, arise and grow.
Which is born have no decline and increase forever more. At dawn or dusk, at night or midday, May the three jewels grant us their blessings, May they help us to achieve all realizations, And sprinkle the path of our lives with various signs of auspiciousness.

Nine Round Breathing Meditation to Purify Our Subtle Wind Energy Sitting in the vajra posture we begin by visualizing that our gross physical body, composed of flesh, organs and bones, gradually melts into light until we are left with only a holographic image that sparkles like a rainbow.
This white light absorbs into the subtle wind energy at our heart. We now block the right nostril and exhale through the left nostril in three short breaths, imagining that all our sicknesses, polluted elemental winds, inner demons and interferences, relating to the left side of the body, are expelled in the aspect of polluted black smoke.
This exercise should now be repeated on the opposite side to purify the left channel and expel all negativities relating to the right side of the body. Placing our hands in the meditation mudra and breathing evenly through both nostrils, we should visualize that all the positive and healing energy of the holy beings enter both the right and left channels and absorb into the subtle wind energy at the heart. In three short breaths, through both nostrils, we breathe out all negativities, physical and mental sicknesses, interferences, demons and polluted winds from both sides of the body.
