Om Mani Peme Hung

Posted by Renee Thibodeaux Perez on

Om Mani Peme Hung

is the Ultimate Mind Protection!!! These sacred syllables have been chanted, hummed, sung, and mumbled for many 100's of years in the East, especially in Tibet and Nepal.   But what do they mean and what do they do?   
I will give a loose translation below of my own understanding and I will also post a link where you can further study and listen to the mantra from a Native Tongue.  

Om is the opening to most prayers and mantras 

Mani means Precious Jewel 

Peme (Padma) means lotus flower (which sits in out heart chakras)

Hung (Hum) is a seed syllable which does many things, but one powerful thing it does is dispel darkness.  

So, keeping this mantra spinning and turning in our Heart/Mind chakra protects us from our dark negative thoughts and patterns of thoughts which have deluded   us to believe that we are separate from others and our world  around us.   It opens our hearts to compassion and rewires our patterns of response to anger, jealousy, fear, depression and greed.  
Wow, could this be possible?  Well don't take my word for it please.  Do as Buddha said and put it into practice for yourself.   Test the power of this most powerful mantra of compassion. 

And lastly, I am not a teacher of Tibetan Buddhism but have only written here my understanding and experience through some years of practicing myself.  

Anyone interested in going further please don't hesitate to contact me directly and I will happily Point You  in the Direction of Receiving teachings from Authentic Lamas and Lineage Holders in the Tibetan Buddhist Spiritual Lineages.
