Om Mani Padme Hum - The Jewel in the Lotus

some good elevating and informative comments from you tube

The mantra doesn't have a truly translatable meaning. The purpose of saying it is to think about each word and create a path to enlightenment.

As His Holiness, the Dalai Lama states:

* "...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[...]"

Namaste! :-)

* It Is Beautiful. Thank You for Sharing It. I Love it.

* although I am not of the same belief, this melody by deva and miten is very relaxing and peaceful in a world of stress and turmoil.

* Om mani padme Hum
May all being be awaken to compassion, experience peace and joy.

* This is relaks. ;)

* OM MANI PADME HUM. THE MYSTIC LAW IS THE LOTUS SUTRA. This is the true interpretation. The most powerful of mantras, written on tibetan prayer flags and hung out in the wind, whatever beings are touched by the wind that has passed across the mantra are highly blessed and will attain enlightenment. It is said that the whole Lotus Sutra is in this one mantra.

* he was born in nepal but lived in India

* ..and Tibet.

* i had my tattoo done 2weeks ago, i love it, not in an ego'look at me im special' kind of way, i love it because its special to me, and makes me feel connected to more than m physcial body.

* I'm getting the text tattoo'd on my forearm this weekend! Can't wait.

* This is just beautiful. Gives me a lot of different emotions each time I listen to it. More than a song.

* this is so beautiful , so relaxing and with beautiful menaing , does anyone know who chants this song and the name ?

* I think that one (padme hum)is the "original" Sanskrit and the other (peme hung)is the Tibetan version. Both are correct, but it is all about the correct pronunciation.

* hm..
well.. you spell it
"Om mani padme hum", thats right.. but you pronounce it in 6 syllables.. "Om ma ni pe me hung" its "pe" not "pa" and "hung" not "hum"..

* That's right - the main aim is to create the correct resonances within the words

* very beautiful!!! :-) excelente great song
go buddism....go nepal...

* this is so beautiful , so relaxing and with beautiful menaing , does anyone know who chants this song and the name ?

* Deva Premal ;-)))

* Thank you, this is a beautiful representation of a very important mantra....I couldn't help but sing along - and it helped to clear my spirit. Thank you again.

* Roughly

"Hail to the jewel in the lotus"

* beautifully sung..dont think it can can get better than touched my soul instantly..absolute joy to listen to it..

* This is so soothing... thanx for posting... This is wonderful!

* Om Mani Padme Hum: Hail and Salutations to the Most Precious Jewel within the Lotus: The Peerless Lord of Compassion and Lovingkindness: The Lord Buddha

* "om shanti om" used to be my mantra but then they came out with a movie and now i cant concentrate any more lol

* Om mane padme hum...wonderful vid.

* Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.

* I already practiced the chenrezig mantra about 15,000 times, and it does such wonderful things for my heart. It taught me how to be very open with people and communicate deeply. It's a deceptively simple mantra, it will change your life if you take it up every day for a month or so.

* It's great that you find it helpful. Remember, the path that the Buddha taught is about MINDFULNESS! So be careful not to get stuck on auto pilot. The intention is to mindfully repeat the mantras focusing our minds and deepening our connections.

Stick with it! It's done wonders for many of us!

Peace, Love, Light, and Truth!

* Beautiful, thank you!

* Thank you! This was beautiful.

* Thankyou very much for this video and song.
It is what I have been trying to find since I lost my little radio of pre-recorded prayer version of Om Mani Padme Hum. This is the best soothing voice I have come across so far.
Thankyou once again, eaglebros :~)

* one is suppose to visualise that all beings on earth is the jewel .. that is their real essence is buddha.. and hence this mantra generates compassion towards all being. it is also said that if you chant this mantra a specific number of times it will open your third eye. it is also the simplest of mantra and has all the essence of buddha 's teaching

* I agree with solotr that the intent of spirit who chants this mantra is more important than "padme" or "peme". Effective mantra chanting is to chant mindfully with sincerity and out from the bottom of our heart. In addition, understanding the meaning that this mantra carries is also very important. The mantra serves as a tool to calm our mind. It is not an end itself. Attachment is dukkha.

* The whole thing about pronunciation is so controversial. I know a buddhist master called Sogyal Rinpoche who keeps saying that the way mantras are pronounced is very important and now some people tell me the real pronunciation of "padme" is "padme" and not "peme".

BhakitPat, do you have any sources, or do you know from experience?

solotr: I agree with you on the fact that the intend of spirit counts more than pronunciation, it's just that most buddhist masters don't seem to agree with us.

* Heretic, I turned up my speakers and they really are saying it correctly padme. It sounds as if the 'd' isn't there when the speakers are low. Beautiful either way..the intent of spirit counts more than pronunciation. Namaste

* While I appreciate the nuance of Tibetan pronunciation that you have skillfully pointed out, it should be noted that the correct Sanskrit pronunciation is Padme and Peme is the best that Tibetans can do to imitate that sound. Peace.
