I've noticed that in the practice for the Medicine Buddha that there is a part where you recite the sanskrit vowel set, and consonant set. I was wondering if anyone could elucidate as to why this is? As I am not Tibetan, should I recite the ABC's instead? (that was a joke, a bad one at that.) Is this a common practice among sadhanas?
usually we just recite the romanized sanskrit syllables. When it is required to visualize the syllable AH for example, we're told that its okay to visualize it as AH (in english).
im not sure if that is what you mean.
