“Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus”

Om Mani Padme Hum (sacred in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism)  is a Sanskrit Mantra which means “Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus”
The “Jewel in the Lotus” is a metaphor for Insight, Wisdom, or Spiritual Enlightenment
“…the six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha”
 – H.H. Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
