...peace...

i was going through Kalyan's post on the buddhist chant...

//his blog text//

The special mantra that is hummed by buddhists, painted or carved on rocks, prayer wheels, vehicles or yak skulls is the OM MANI PADME HUM in the buddhist dominated places. They believe chanting this mantra invokes powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenregiz, the embodiment of compassion.

Their are 6 syllables in the mantra. I gathered the meaning from them which is something like this:

OM- purity
MA- enlightenment
NI- ethics
PAD- tolerance
ME- concentration
HUM- wisdom

Buddhists actually pronounce it om mani peh me hum and broadly means ‘hail to the jewel in the lotus.’

i had heard this same chant in a friend's car and have been facinated by it since then... found it online today so wanted to share it with you all




this is just peace! close your eyes for the next 7 minutes and just breath easy... you will feel refreshed (my personal guarantee!)
