Essentially, what Om Mani Padme Hum is saying is that if you want to achieve the highest state of your being, you must live an enlightened life, speaking, acting, and behaving in an enlightened way, with love and compassion for all. This is the way to your highest self.
Nothing is more important than compassion.
Compassion is everything.

“We can live without religion, but we cannot live without human compassion”. That’s why we need to do our all to make sure that we are compassionate to everyone.
