The Mantra is one of the best to infuse Divine energy within you and within your surroundings. This Mantra is so much sacred that it is said a person who recites this mantra daily, and when such a person walks down a road and the wind touches his or her body and then goes on to touch insects, their negative karma gets purified and causes them to have a good rebirth. Similarly, when such a person does massage or otherwise touches others’ bodies, those people’s negative karma also gets purified. If this person goes swimming then all the sentient beings of water are purified and are spared of their difficult life. The same applies to wherever he/she is. Such is the power of this Mantra.
So the above statement also implies that if this Mantra is recited then our Aura, our bodies (Energy/Astral/Mental/Spiritual) gets purified automatically. Because till the time one is purified, the same energy cannot be passed on to others.
The meaning of this Mantra is very vast; it implies different meanings at different stages of life. One of the meanings is that in dependence on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha. ~~ (From a lecture given by His Holiness The Dalai Lama of Tibet at the Kalmuck Mongolian Buddhist Center, New Jersey.)
For some this Mantra means: “Beseeching the embodiment of the five forms and the five transcending awarenesses. He who bears the gem and lotus for protection from the sufferings of the beings of the six realms.” Some say that reciting this mantra is like reciting the name of Avlokiteswara or Chenrezig. Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig represents the full and complete compassion of Christ that manifests in existence. Chenrezig, or Avalokiteshvara is the love in every Buddha or Angel; all of them combined are Chenrezig, Avalokiteshvara, Christ.
That is why Om Mani Padme Hum is also said to be the Mantra of Christ.
To me as my Master elaborated Om Maini Padme Hum means “The Jewel is in the Lotus or Praise the Jewel in the Lotus”. Lotus is a representation of a Chakra and the Jewel is in that Chakra. Also the Jewel is not an ordinary one it’s a gateway to the higher realms/to the heaven. Found your Jewel through this Mantra.
It not only has magical healing abilities but much more. It is said that it works with our fivefold Karma and render the effects futile. This mantra works through our heart and brings out our inner compassion/love (Buddha Nature). Thus, we build our own inner powers through it. Many a times not realizing but, when we do, it helps and supports the whole world and all the sentient beings!!!! Also reciting this Mantra will take you to your Life Purpose and help you realize it. Some also term it as a wish fulfilling mantra. But not going towards the self centered part of us, this Mantra can help multitude of beings realize happiness through you.
The highest form of love is rendered to you through Om Mani Padme Hum. If you seek a good life on earth, go seek this Mantra.
