I read much about mantras being practiced by some school of buddhism, and it is directed for deity. I suppose this is practiced in Mahayana? I tried to follow an old school which is the Theravada, I don't hear much of of reciting mantras to deities? Maybe I just don't know if we have deities, but the monks didn't much focused on those things. I regularly hear - Namo Tassa - but there is all into it. Is it true that in some sutras, the Theravada have their own deities?
