OM MANI PADME HUM | Compassion Mantra

OM MANI PADME HUM
is the six-syllabled Sanskrit mantra
In Buddhist Meditation practice, It is bodhisattva of compassion. Mani means “jewel” or “bead” and Padma means “the lotus flower”, the Buddhist sacred flower.
It is commonly carved onto rocks or written on paper which is inserted into prayer wheels. When an individual spins the wheel, it is said that the effect is the same as chanting the mantra as many times as it is duplicated within the wheel.

According to the 14th Dalai Lama
“It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast… The first, Om symbolizes the practitioner’s impure body, speech, and mind; it also symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.
“The path is indicated by the next four syllables. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love.”
“The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom”
“Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility”
“Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha”
