Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying this mantra, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Viewing a written copy of the mantra is said to have the same effect — and the mantra is carved into stones left in piles near paths where travelers will see them. Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel is also supposed to have the same effect; the more copies of the mantra, the more the benefit.
‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ in Sanskrit or ‘Om Mani Peme Hung’ as in Tibetan Buddhism is known to contain the essence of all of Buddha’s teachings in this magical six syllable mantra of the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara .
OM MANI PADME HUM purifies us at 3 levels Mind, Body & Speech and in this way liberates us from all negative karma. 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 )
