Black 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.

Amongst the numerous benefits of Black Manjushri is that it particularly helps, both mentally and physically, those suffering from so-called “incurable” diseases such as AIDS and cancer. 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.

His 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.
