JEWEL IN THE LOTUS……. manipadma is the Jewel Lotus Bodhisattva, like Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Om
“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”
This is what my teacher, Geshe Kelsang Gyasto says about OM MANI PADME HUM: “The meaning of this mantra is: with ‘OM’ we are calling Avalokiteshvara, ‘MANI’ means the precious jewel of enlightenment, ‘PAME’ means liberation and ‘HUM’ means bestow. Together, the meaning is: ‘O Avalokiteshvara, please bestow the precious jewel of enlightenment to liberate all living beings’. Through the recitation of this mantra we train in the compassionate mind of bodhichitta.”
