Alphabe Thursday … O is for Om

August 29, 2013

This week I have spoken of meditation and the use of a mantra to retain ‘focus.’ When meditating one hopes to find the absolute truth and us lesser mortals will go to great lengths to maintain one moment.

‘Om mani padme hum’ is such a mantra’ it is six Sanskrit syllables meaning jewel [of] the lotus flower; a epithet of Buddha.  It might seem a bit of a tongue twister at first but once mastered it will roll off the tongue and when repeated many times one can achieve some sort of peace.

As we become more able to sit in meditation pose and focus also on the the four armed Chenrizig;  the Bodhisattva of compassion then the mantra becomes more powerful and beneficial.
