This beautiful Blue on the golden mantra mandala is surrounded by Tibetan universal peace Mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum”.
Om Mani Padme Hum
Om Mane Padme hum means jewels in the lotus with different petals containing good luck, peace, power, and protection. Om Mani Padme Hum is the most well known/chanted mantra in Buddhism. Composed of six syllables it has the power to bless the heart and the mind of the practitioner.
Om is the sound or “vibration” of the universe. This sound is the most important of all; but in the context of chanting and mantras, it is meant to destroy attachments to ego and establish generosity.
Ma removes the attachment to jealousy and establishes ethics.
Ni removes the attachment to desire and establishes patience.
Pad removes the attachment to prejudice and establishes perseverance.
Me removes the attachment to possessiveness and establishes concentration.
Hum removes the attachment to hatred and establishes wisdom.
As stated by the Dalai Lama
“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 beautiful mantra mandala is hand painted by the professional Lama named Ratna Kumar Lama living in Lalitpur Nepal. He is specialized in the different varieties of mandalas and thangkas.
The Om Mane Padme Hum mantra is repeated in the outer layer of the mandala. The more you chant the mantra the worse will be turned into good. Om Mani Padme Hum is used to pray and chant. The center of the mandala contains lotus with Om Mani Padme Hum Manta on it. The outer layer is surronded by the mantra.
