‘Om Mani Peme Hum’ Is Not A Lucky Charm

The mantra, Om mani peme hum, is not a lucky charm. It represents six essentials for a compassionate life. These are generosity, patience, morality, discipline, concentration and transcendent wisdom. Om mani peme hum is easier to chant 🙂

The first five are about being a mindful engineer preparing to realise the sixth of transcendent wisdom that realises pure consciousness. The sixth is the realisation that we are compassionate, pure consciousness, with the emphasis on ‘we’. That’s one way of approaching Om mani peme hum.

The other way is to be introduced to compassionate, pure consciousness from the beginning, and then using the other five essentials to support that realisation.
