Explanation of Karmapa Chenno Mantra-Vido

"[Karmapa] is not a title which only belongs to one person. It belongs to all Bodhisattvas and great accomplished Masters. They are all Karmapas; they are all practitioners of the Buddha's activities. That's why when we recite this [mantra], we are able to receive blessings from all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and great accomplished Masters."  

"Thus this mantra is the simplest way which we can recite once and receive a tremendous amount of total and complete blessing. So let's receite the "Karmapa Kyenno" mantra a few times"."
