Locana mantra in Tibetan Uchen script


oṃ va jra lo ca ne loṃ svā hā

oṃ vajra locane loṃ svāhā


The Tibetan text varies slightly due to the vageries of Tibetan orthography and pronunciation. Vajra, following the Tibetan practice is actually written badzra. Locane is the vocative form of Locana's name and therefore means "O Locana". svāhā is an ancient Vedic word that was used to mark the making of oblations to the sacred fire.
