The Meaning behind OM MANI PADME HUM:
Om is a very big word that is said to be the sound of the Universe.
According to the "Manduka Upanishad": “Om is the imperishable word. Om is the universe, and this is the exposition of om. The past, the present, and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be is om. Likewise, all else that may exist beyond the bounds of time, that too is om.”
Mani means "jewel" or "bead"
Padme is the "lotus flower" (the Buddhist sacred flower)
- Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment
