Om Mani Padme Hum
Lama Tashi Intro & Group Mantra Chant
2014 Healing Sounds Intensive
Other than the “Om”, most likely the most well known mantra of the East is “Om Mani Padme Hum” (“Om Mani Peme Hung” in Tibetan). This is the six syllabled mantra honors and invokes Avalokitesvara, (Chenrezig in Tibetan) the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Avalokitesvara is gifted with comprehensive enlightenment and stated to reject no plea produced to him by people in distress. “Om Mani Padme Hum” has generally been one particular of my favorites and in a lot of distinctive workshops all through the years (as nicely as a quantity of distinctive recordings), I have worked with this chant.
The which means of this mantra is normally translated as “The jewel in the center of the lotus”. I like to perceive of the lotus as which means the heart chakra—and the jewel, becoming the power of compassion. Even so, there are actually books such as “Creative Visualization and Multi-Dimensional Consciousness”, written by Lama Govinda and committed to the subtleties of which means and teachings behind this extraordinary chant.
“Om Mani Padme Hum”, is a mantra that is applied for protection, healing and a lot of other optimistic attributes like communication with larger realms of consciousness. But most powerfully, it is a mantra applied to create compassion. And certainly, when persons chant or listen to this mantra, they look to have the element of compassion manifest inside them. I like this. I assume the planet wants compassion. A entire lot far more compassion.
What is compassion? That is commonly the 1st query I ask in a workshop prior to we start the actual recitation of “Om Mani Padme Hum”. What is compassion to you? To a lot of, it is kindness. To other folks it is adore. To other it is selflessness. To other folks, it is empathy. The gamut of what is compassion runs as wide and deep as the aspect of defining other any extraordinary word.
In the following recording you can hear Chant Master Lama Tashi (Grammy nominee for “Tibetan Master Chants”) expound upon the topic from his point of view. And it is certainly enlightening. But we ask that you commit a moment meditating on this word and it is which means prior to you start listening to the mantra.
Regardless of how you define compassion, continued chanting (and listening to) the mantra of “Om Mani Padme Hum” can lead to practically nothing much less than evolution of physique, thoughts and spirit. This mantra may perhaps eventually be amongst the most essential that can be applied to resonate our planet and all the sentient beings upon it at this moment in time and space.
