Om arapachana Dhih

According to Chinese tradition, in order to bring Manjusri into manifestation the Buddha caused a golden ray to emanate from his forehead This ray pierced a jambu tree which grew from the foundation of the most sacred Buddhist mountain in China, now called Wu Tai Shan. A lotus sprang from the tree and from the interior of the flower was born the prince of sages, also called the Prince Royal of the Buddha's realm. He was born without father and mother and was thus free from the pollution of the common world.

The Eight Worldly Concerns

The eight worldly concerns are:

to be happy when we are praised,
to be unhappy when we are insulted,
to be happy if we receive gifts,
to be unhappy if we don’t,
to be happy upon achieving reputation,
to be unhappy when we are unsuccessful,
to be happy when we are comfortable,
to be unhappy when we are not.

We should not be practising the Dharma for these reasons at all.

It will be better to memorise those eight worldly concerns than a
hundred tantric practices, and I am not trying to blow your mind away.
But yes, if you know the mantras and practices and all the initiations
of one hundred tantric deities but you are practising with the eight
worldly concerns, you will not achieve even one tantric result of one
tantric deity. --Tsem Tulku - Compassion Conquers All
