STANZAS OF VICTORY

 

Jaya Mangal Gantha

Recital for Blessings and Prosperity on significant occasions

 These verses are recited by Buddhist devotees in many Buddhist countries on auspicious occasions such as weddings, house warming ceremonies, felicitations and various kinds of blessing services. Children could be taught to sing the verses to the accompaniment of musical instruments.

 These eight verses recall the great events which took place between the Buddha and His powerful opponents, who have tried to kill Him, to humiliate Him and to defeat Him, and how the Buddha overcame all these disturbances calmly and peacefully through the merits of His great virtues; and finally how He converted His opponents into following the righteous way of living. Each verse is based on a beautiful story. One who recites these verses regularly and mindfully following the example given by the Buddha, can overcome many difficulties.
