A transliteration of the Sanskrit words: Om mani padme hum Or sometimes written as: Om mani peme hung. In the words of Kalu Rinpoche, "Through mantra, we no longer cling to the reality of the speech and sound encountered in life, but experience it as essentially empty. Then confusion of the speech aspect of our being is transformed into enlightened awareness."
