Greetings Curt and Members,

The Tendai tradition implements the DAIKONGO-RIN mantra, the exoteric form
of which is:
Namah stryadhivikaanaam sarva tathaagataanaam om viraji viraji mahaa cakra
vajri satasata saarate saarate trayii trayii vidamani sambhanjani tramati
siddhagriye tram svaha.

Oral commentaries (kuden) exist which are transmitted from Master to acolyte
detailing the use, corresponding hand mudra and mind visualization.
