“There is not a single aspect of the eighty-four thousand sections of the Buddha’s teachings which is not contained in Avalokiteshvara’s six syllable mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum” is Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s summary.
“Containing all the secrets to the universe; life, death, rebirth. Enlightenment in a single phrase” is how Alan Watts describes the inner beauty contained within the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum .
I’ve been making my own investigations into this wonderful mantra for the past previous months, chanting, reading, and listening. The more you hear, speak and see it, the more it opens up. Initally you feel slightly awakard, then a surface level of peace and joy is offered. From here, you get into the rhtymn of it, and you no longer think about it; you’re meditating in the words, allowing them to flow. It almost becomes as if they are manifesting you, not you manifesting them.
Om Mani Padme Hum contains every Buddhist teaching inside of it. It is the one that contains the all; a signs of Pure Dharma. Below are two parts of this detailed teaching.
Ma Moral conduct
Me Meditative stabilization
Hum Discriminating awareness
(Pad)Om Ignorance is cleansed.
Ma And the defilements of hatred,
Hum And pride are purified.
