HOMAGE TO ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS!
Thus have I heard: at one time, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror was in Rajagriha, on Vulture’s Peak Mountain, abiding together in one company with an enormous Sangha of fully- ordained monks.
Then, the Blessed One said to the Venerable Ananda: “Retain this, the Heart of Ganapati! Those people who read this will accomplish all of their endeavors. All the aspirations they hold in their minds will be accomplished, as well. They will accomplish all of the secret mantras, too. All of their wealth and resources will become abundant. Without asking or searching, whatever food and riches they want will be found. For this, one must recite this mantra!”

“Ananda! If any son or daughter of noble spiritual lineage, fully-ordained monk, fully-ordained nun, layman, laywoman, or anyone else intones this Heart-Essence of the Lord of Gatherings every day, then that person will be endowed with bliss and happiness in this life. They will be endowed with riches and resources. The sufferings of poverty and destitution will not occur. They will be pleasing and delightful to all people. They will accomplish all of their endeavors, no matter what they are, and their aspirations as well. Both in this life and their next life too, they will not lack wealth and resources.” “Waking up daily early in the morning in one’s home, if this dhārani is chanted three or seven times, then one will retain what has been heard. All malevolent gods, harmful spirits, demons, and dakinis will not snatch away one’s radiance and luster. That person will be guarded and protected.”
The Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror spoke thus, and the entire retinue, the whole universe with its gods, humans, demi-gods, and gandharvas rejoiced, and deeply praised what had been spoken by the Bhagavan, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror.
THE EXALTED DHĀRANI OF GANAPATI, THE LORD OF GATHERINGS, IS COMPLETE.
