The benefits of chanting mantras

The benefits of chanting mantras include 8 ordinary achievements, 6 resources, 4 motivation and eight special achievements. Of course, the greatest achievement is the achievement of the Buddha level.

3.  The siddhi of the pill (རིལ་བུ) is the ability to become invisible by blessing pills and holding them in your hand;
