The sound and every lyrics of this mantra is so peaceful and powerful all our focus goes to this mantra. We feel enlightenment inside ourselves.

Om mami padme hūm (Sanskritॐ मणिपद्मे हूँ,  is the six-syllabled Sanskrit mantra particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara (Tibetanསྤྱན་རས་གཟིགས་ ChenrezigChinese觀音 GuanyinKorean관음GuaneumJapanese観音かんのん Kannon or KanzeonMongolianМэгжид Жанрайсиг Migjid Janraisig), the bodhisattva of compassion.

The first word Om is a sacred syllable found in Indian religions. The word Mani means “jewel” or “bead”, Padme is the “lotus flower” (the Buddhist sacred flower), and Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment.

It is commonly carved onto rocks, known as mani stones, or else it is written on paper which is inserted into prayer wheels. When an individual spins the wheel, it is said that the effect is the same as reciting the mantra as many times as it is duplicated within the wheel.

In English, the mantra is variously transliterated, depending on the schools of Buddhism as well as individual teachers.

Most authorities consider manipadme to be one compound word rather than two simple words. Sanskrit writing does not have capital letters and this means that capitalisation of transliterated mantras varies from all caps, to initial caps, to no caps. The all-caps rendering is typical of older scholarly works, and Tibetan Sadhana texts.


“om mani padme hūm”

Mantras may be interpreted by practitioners in many ways, or even as mere sequences of sound whose effects lie beyond strict meaning.

The middle part of the mantra, manipadme, is often interpreted as “jewel in the lotus,” Sanskrit maní “jewel, gem, cintamani” and the locativeof padma “lotus“, but according to Donald Lopez it is much more likely that manipadme is in fact a vocative, not a locative, addressing a bodhisattva called manipadma, “Jewel-Lotus”- an alternate epithet of the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. It is preceded by the om syllable and followed by the hūm syllable, both interjections without linguistic meaning.

Lopez also notes that the majority of Tibetan Buddhist texts have regarded the translation of the mantra as secondary, focusing instead on the correspondence of the six syllables of the mantra to various other groupings of six in the Buddhist tradition.
