Six little words:
Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum is the most widely used Buddhist Mantra. It cannot be easily translated into one sentence or phrase - quite simply, it sums up all of the teachings in the Dharma. It is the mantra of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion, and when you say the mantra and you visualise yourself as the Buddha of Compassion, so that you reduce the fixation on yourself and your own suffering, and instead extend loving compassion towards others.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said: "The mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is easy to say yet quite powerful, because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity. Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics. Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Pad, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance. Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration. The final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom".
Lama Zopa Rinpoche said, "Even if you don’t have much intellectual understanding of Dharma, even if the only thing you know is Om Mani Padme Hum, still the happiest life is one lived with an attitude free of the eight worldly concerns. If you live your life with the pure attitude free of attachment clinging to this life and simply spend your life chanting Om Mani Padme Hum - this six-syllable mantra that is the essence of all Dharma - that’s the purest Dharma."
