Vajrasatva Mantra Chanted

Fascinating. I've been studying this mantra including translating the Sanskrit and researching the earliest textual occurrence. This version sounds even further removed from the written Sanskrit than what we inherited from Dudjom Rinpoche.

The Tibetan accent and changes in pronunciation means that I recognised about 10% of the words the first time round. By the 3rd time I more or less knew which bits were which but only because I'm very familiar with the text.
