Colophon:
Mantras given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Scribe unknown. Lightly edited by Gyalten Mindrol, FPMT Education Department, February 2006. These mantras have not been checked against the Tibetan.

These are the mantras of Prajnaparamita, three volumes, 20,000 stanzas, all three lengths. When there is no time to recite all the text, one can just do the mantras. In Singapore some years ago, one Indonesian man whose business was going down did this and his business improved. So this gives another method for sick people and business people for the works of this life.
