Buddhist Sacred Texts

 

Om Mani Padme Hung

Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hung, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of Compassion.

Tibetan: ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པ་དྨེ་ཧཱུྃ། Om Mani Peme Hung or Om Mani Beh Meh Hung

Viewing the written form of the mantra is said to have the same effect - it is often carved into stones and placed where people can see them.

Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.

It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in this mantra: Om Mani Padme Hung can not really be translated into a simple phrase or sentence.

The mantra originated in India; as it moved from India into Tibet, the pronunciation changed because some of the sounds in the Indian Sanskrit language were hard for Tibetans to pronounce.

Sanskrit form Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra of Avalokiteshvara

Tibetan form Om Mani Padme Hung Mantra of Chenrezig

The mantra Om Mani Padme Hung is found written in two different ways in (and on) Mani wheels and on jewelry, etc. in the ancient Indian Ranjana script and in Tibetan script.
