Homage to you, whose eyes shine with lustre,
Bright with the fullness of sun and moon.
With twice-uttered hara and tuttāre
You pacify the most intractable diseases.
Texts related to the goddess Parṇaśavarī (or Parṇaśabarī), who is known in Tibetan as Loma Gyönma (lo ma gyon ma) or 'Leaf-Clad' and is particularly associated with the healing of contagious disease:
A simple practice of Parṇaśavarī consisting of homage (from a longer praise by Chögyal Pakpa Lodrö Gyaltsen), mantra and dedication, which is particularly recommended as a means to heal and dispel contagious disease.
A simple supplication to the goddess Parṇaśavarī (or Parṇaśabarī, lo gyon ma) calling upon her to pacify and eliminate the suffering brought about by sickness and disease.
Karma Chakmé composed this five-verse prayer to Parṇaśavarī (or Parṇaśabarī, lo gyon ma) on the basis of a vision of the goddess, which he experienced when performing a fire offering.
