Om Mani Padme Hum


The Jewel in the Lotus – The Mantra of Compassion
This is the highest Mantra for mankind
gifted to us by the thousand Buddhas
out of their compassion
for all sentient beings.

It will protect us from all harm ,
sufferings , ill health , hell regions,

It will purify us and free us from all our negative
emotions of the Mind and speech.

This mantra saves us from the hell regions and
hungry ghosts which we have to encounter during
and after death.

Hence it is beneficial and a most valubale saviour
not only during Life on Earth
but also after Life , when we have to remain
and pass through the six Hell regions in the Bardos.
Each syllable in this six syllable Mantra liberates us
from one realm of suffering out of each of the six realms
of suffering filled existence.
OM liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
bliss and pride in the samsaric realm of the Gods.
MA liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
jealousy and lust for entertainment in the samsaric realm
of Demi-Gods.
NI liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
passion and desire in the samsaric realm
of Humans.
PAD liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
stupidity and prejudice in the samsaric realm
of animals.
ME liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
poverty and possessiveness in the samsaric realm
of hungry ghosts.

HUM liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
agression and hatred in the samsaric realm
of hell.

In this way by freeing our consciousness ,
our spirit energy from the neurotic attachments
that our senses are bonded with through
the cravings and aversions constantly
taking place inside of us …

and in this way creating negative karmas
that keep us bound to sufferings
and also creating samsara.

purifies us at 3 levels –

Mind, Speech and Body

and in this way liberates us
from all our negative karmas.
Within a short time of meditating on this Mantra ,
you will experience the opening and development of your
heart chakra and begin to feel highly kind and compassionate
towards other sentient beings including animals ,
even the tiny helpless ones .
You will develop a magnetic aura around you that will draw
other people towards you , attracting them like a magnet
attracts iron filings and love wll begin to flow in your Life.
Saying this mantra for 21 minutes daily will energise and
develop your Heart Chakra and …..
when the Heart and Mind become united ,
anything is possible.

This Mantra is popularly known as
” The Jewel in the Lotus “or
” The Diamond in the Lotus “
( “mani” means Diamond , a precious jewel
and Padma means Lotus flower which is the
spiritual symbol of consciousness )
The Jewel refers to the Mind or consciousness and
the Lotus refers to the Heart that is the source of Love energy
The meaning of OM MANI PADME HUM is
“Om , salutations to the Jewel of consciousness (the Mind)
which has reached the Heart’s lotus. “
A Very Very Important Message Regarding Mantras
Your outer world is governed by
your inner world, so Divine Powers
that are generated inside you ,
now start making all positive events
happen in your life in the outer world.

This inner world is nothing but your
intent which actually you are expressing in
the mantra. So , here ,I wish to make the
most valuable statement about mantras.

If you don’t understand the meaning of
the mantra you are repeating and
what you are saying to the cosmos from
your spirit and subconscious mind,
– if you are not visualising this meaning
of the mantra by feeling the meaning
of the mantra deep within your soul ,
while saying the mantra , then
it is not going to benefit you much .

Most people don’t even understand
what the mantra is all about even
after using it for years , so they do not
progress much , so we encourage you
to understand the explanations we
have given on each mantra and
which Divine Energies it is attracting
and addressing .

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
