HOMAGE TO THE THREE JEWELS!
Thus have I heard: at one time, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror was abiding in Shravasti in King Jetavana’s Grove, in the contemplative garden of Anathapindada.
Then, the great general of the yakshas, Manibhadraputra, went up to the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, and having gone there, he bowed his head at the feet of the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, and sat down to one side.
Having sat down to one side, the great general of the yakshas Manibhadraputra spoke the following words to the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror:
“Venerable Sir, if any fully-ordained monks, fully-ordained nuns, laymen, laywomen, or anyone else recites this heart-essence every day during the three parts of the day, then I will always follow after that person, do everything that person needs, seek out food, riches, gold, jewels, grain, and silver for them, accomplish all of their aims, put all sentient beings under their power, instantaneously accomplish all the various activities of that person, and they will be apart from association with depravity.”

“If you recite this seven times, there will be accomplishment.”
“The ritual of this dhārani is this: If on the 15th day of the waxing moon ones clean oneself, scents with the smoke of aloe-wood [akaru] during the three times of the day, and recites this dhārani 7,000 times, then gold will be found.”
THE EXALTED DHĀRANI OF MANIBHADRA IS COMPLETE.
