It is believed that this six-syllable mantra is derived from the Sanskrit language that originated in India. While trekking around higher altitudes, you also must have seen white carvings on rocks in the Tibetan language, whereas in the same way, this important chant is also there in prayer wheels and prayer flags. Whenever someone spins the wheels, it describes the same activity as chanting “Om Mani Padme Hum”.
When we asked Buddhist monks about the meaning, some of them said that this mantra comprises the entire Buddhist teaching and simply cannot be translated into simple words. However, the search for its actual meaning leads us to its literal translation which gave the meaning with a piece of advice “Praise to the Jewel in Lotus”.
“Om Mani Padme Hum” purifies the negative energies that surround us and keeps us calm giving positive vibrations.
