Sherap Jamma, the Wise Loving Mother, is a Buddha who manifests as a loving mother who cares for each and every sentient being as though they were her only child. The Heartdrop of Jamma is an aural transmission given by Khandro Sherap Lopelma, an emanation of Jamma, to His Holiness 22nd Menri Trizin Sonam Lodro Rinpoché. Lama Tsultrim Nyima, the abbot of the 1st Yungdrung Bön temple in exile in Dhorpatan, Nepal, advised the Bönpo refugees to recite The Heartdrop of Jamma together as a family every evening after dinner. This evening recitation continues to this very day among many Bönpo families.
This text is the heart essence of Buddha Sherap Jamma’s qualities of perfected wisdom and complete realization. In this practice, every aspect of the mind, consciousness and physical body are transformed into a manifestation of Buddha Sherap Jamma through the power of the syllables of her essence mantra. In this way, our wisdom, realization and positive qualities increase and our attachment to a rigid, self-focused identity decreases.

“From the É MA at the twenty fingers and toes manifests the outer retinue.
I prostrate to the thirty-two Mothers!
From the sixteen letters HO at the soles of the feet,
the palms of the hands,
the two forearms,
the two shins,
the two thighs,
the upper arms,
and inside the four organs manifests the four outer, four inner, four secret, and the four innermost secret doorkeepers.
I prostrate to the manifestations who open the doors to realization, methods of practice, abiding, and to the path!”
