Meaning of Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra
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.
It is said that you should not seek Buddhahood outside of yourself; the substances for the achievement of Buddhahood are within.
