Brief Origins of Cintamani Cakravartin Dharani

Recorded in the ancient language of Sanskrit, this remarkable dharani originates from the Maha-Padma-Vajra-Samaya-Adhisthana-Guhya-na-Abavarana Sutra. In this sacred sutra, it is written that Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, in the presence of and with empowerment by the Buddha and other Bodhisattvas, revealed to the world the Cintamani Cakravartin Dharani mantra and practice that can remove karmic obstacles, grant the attainment of the Cintamani Siddhi and fulfilling the supreme wishes of sentient beings. 
Understanding & Preparation

Step 1: The Maha Padma Samaya Mudra
In traditional tibetan practices, a mudra is a symbolic hand gesture used in various rituals, ceremonies, dances and meditation practices to convey specific meanings or evoke certain energies. Each mudra is associated with different aspects and attributes, and they are believed to have the power to influence or channel the flow of energy in the body and mind.

To perform this mudra, first place both hands together in anjali mudra; then open the two index fingers, middle fingers, and ring fingers apart and slightly bent. The index finger tips should be parted half an inch away. Both thumbs and small fingers erect touching and slightly bent resembling a blossoming lotus flower (Maha Padma).

A Cintamani Jewel should be placed within this "lotus flower" mudra (close to the heart) during practice or meditation.

If physically holding one is not possible, place the Cintamani Jewel close within your auric energy field and
Visualize a yellow glowing globe (like the sun rising) within the mudra.

Step 2: Visualization Techniques

Technique #1

With the mudra performed, you can now say your prayer or wish as follows:
"May the Compassionate Aura of the Cintamani Jewel protect and bless me, [Your Full Name],
and help me find success in [specific project or goal] or help me heal from [specific health problem]."

Visualise a yellow aura of the Cintamani emanating from within the mudra,
and feel the light continuously encompassing your entire body and being during the practice or meditation.

Technique #2

With the mudra performed, you can now say your prayer or wish as follows:

"May the Compassionate Aura of the Cintamani Jewel protect and bless me, [Your Full Name],
and help me find success in [specific project or goal] or help me heal from [specific health problem]."

Visualize the Cintamani Jewel as a crystal ball where you can see within your hopes and dreams or wishes fulfilled. For example see yourself driving your dream car or inside your dream home. Or seeing someone sitting from the hospital bed and walk away symbolising recovery and healing etc.

Technique #3

Alternatively, if you do not have any specific wish to ask for, you can also keep your mind empty, concentrate on the mantra recitation, let any entering thoughts just go away and be free from any expectations or wishes and simply practice the dharani daily. This technique will help raise your vibrations and work wonders in your life. 

All 3 techniques can be used interchangeably within ones daily practice.

Step 3: Recite the Cintamani Cakravartin Dharani mantra

Namo Ratnatrayaya
Nama Aryavalokitesvaraya
Tadyatha Om Cakravarti Cintamani
Maha Padme Ru Ru Tistha Jvala
Akarsaya Hum Phat Svaha
Om Padma Cintamani Jvala Hum
Om Varada Padme Hum

Essential Knowledge

According to the Sutra, a common man should do at least 106 recitations daily and a common woman should recite 103 times daily. A boy should recite 100 times daily and a girl 90 times daily for an uninterrupted period of 21 days or more.

Due to the esoteric nature of this mantra, the most c
rucial aspect to achieving accomplishment is to practice discreetly
and if possible in secrecy as the sutra denotes; refraining from disclosing it to others, especially those unfamiliar
or those without a predispositioned karmic connection with the cintamani jewel, practice and method.
Additionally, it is vital that the recitations are clear, accurate, and devoid of errors.

There are no restrictions on whoever wishes to recite this mantra, whether they are monks, common folks, drinkers,
meat consumers, or married. There is no need to perform rituals, select auspicious dates, fast, or change clothing.

Simply recite directly, and accomplishment shall be achieved.
