>In Korean Buddhism there is a mantra that is sometimes called "the
>extra mantra" - it goes like this:
>om ho-ro ho-ro saya mot-kye sabaha

This reminds me of the mind-training mantra for giving and taking. There
are two parts representing giving happiness (the sun - gold)  and taking
suffering (the moon - silver). The practice of taking has the mantra:

  om yo hoho anna bota lovrum

In Tibetan, the full practice is known as long-jong and this, the taking
part, is thus the long-jong silver mantra.
