The meaning of famous mantra



This is the highest Mantra for mankind gifted to us by the thousand Buddhas  out of their compassion for all sentient beings.

This mantra originated in India and migrated to Tibet, where the pronunciation changed somewhat as the Tibetan people found some of the Sanskrit difficult to pronounce. The Tibetan form of the mantra is “Om mane peme hung”.

OM is the sound that brings into being all of creation. It can be seen as the Sanskrit equivalent to the Greek letter “alpha”. MANI is the jewel or diamond stone. The Jewel refers to the Mind or consciousness. It is the Eastern philosopher’s stone that bestows enlightenment. PADME is the lotus flower. The Lotus refers to the Heart that is the source of Love energy. It symbolizes the blossoming of consciousness within the human heart and when the Heart and Mind become united, anything is possible. HUM is the sound that brings into being the dissolution of the universe. It can be seen as the Sanskrit equivalent to the Greek letter “omega”.

The complete mantra can be read as “Between the beginning and the ending is the diamond consciousness which has reached the source of Love”.

The six syllables also purify what Buddhists call the six realms of existence in suffering.

Om – purifies bliss/pride,

Ma – jealousy/lust for entertainment,

Ni – passion/desire,

Pad – ignorance/prejudice,

Me – poverty/possessiveness,

Hum – aggression/hatred.

The mantra OM MANI PADME HUM purifies us at 3 levels – Mind, Speech and Body and in this way liberates us from all our negative karmas.

Buddhists believe that our true nature is of Love and Compassion, and by reciting this mantra we strip away the layers of ourselves that are covering up our true being.

Thanks to Guru
