Mantra Mandala Thangka Painting is striking painting handpainted by Nepali artist living in Bhaktapur. The Om Mani Padme Hum mantra is repeated in 11 times the circular form. In the middle of the mandala, we can see Om.
In Buddism, a blue aura represents loving-kindness, peace, and universal compassion. The mantra inscription reads Om Mani Padme Hum which is perhaps the most famous of all the Buddhist mantras. It is the mantra of the current Dalai Lama and his reincarnate God Sadaksari Lokeshvara.
The basic English translation of Om Mani Padme Hum is “Om Jewel in the Lotus Hum” or “Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus.” However, the meaning and significance of the six Tibetan syllables have been interpreted in a variety of ways.
One common interpretation is that each syllable corresponds to one of the six realms of existence and purifies the vice associated with that realm:
Om purifies bliss and pride (the realm of the gods) Ma purifies jealousy and needs for entertainment (the realm of the jealous gods) Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm) Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm) Me purifies poverty and possessiveness (the realm of the hungry ghosts) Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm)
