Buddhist Sacred Texts

Om Mani Padme Hum

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

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 Hum 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 Hum 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.
