The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Hindi अवलोकितेश्वर Avalokite-vara "Lord Who Observes from the Top", Chinese 觀音 Guunsh-yan or 觀音 Guonyan, Shanghaian Kueu (sy)'in, Korean Gwanseeum 관세음, Japanese 観音 Kan'no, Tibetan Chenrezig, Vietnamese Quen Them, Indonesian Kwan Im, Khmer លោកេស្វរ Lokesvara), is arguably the most revered and popular great bodhisattva among the Great Vehicle Buddhists. It is also used as a yidam (tutelary deity) in tantric meditations.
Bodhisattva protean and syncretic (it can represent all other bodhisattva), embodying the ultimate compassion, it can be feminine in China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam, in the form of Guan Yin.
He is considered the protector of Tibet where King Songtsen Gampo and later the Dalai Lamas are seen as his emanations. This is also the case of other tulkou such as karmapa. Also known as Padmapi or Ma'ipadm, it is invoked by the famous mantra Om̐ Ma'ipadme hum (ॐ मणिपद्मेहूम्).
Chenrézi is the bodhisattva of love and compassion. Chenrézi's poudja aims to develop loving friendship and compassion for all living beings without distinction. Chenrézi manifests itself in different forms: the 10-headed, 1000-arm Chenrézi of compassion is best known: he promised his spiritual father, the Amitabha Buddha, to expend all his energy to free all living beings and not to rest until all living beings were freed from their suffering. If he should ever doubt his mission, 'then my head could fragment into ten and my body in 1000'. When, after meditating deeply and reciting the Mantra of Mani, he saw that the ocean of suffering had still not emptied, then he fell into deep despair and broke his head in 10 and his body in 1000. The six-syllable mantra OM MANI PEME HOENG is the best known mantra of Tibetan Buddhism.
Om mani padme hum (derived from Sanskrit, sometimes followed by a seventh syllable, hrih) is one of Buddhism's most famous mantras. It means "The Jewel in the Lotus."
This is the mantra of the six syllables of the boddhisatva of compassion Avalokitesvara (Guanyin in Chinese, Kannon in Japanese, Chenrezig in Tibetan). It is therefore also called mantra of great compassion (mahakaruna).
Its influence is universal in Mahayana Buddhism and vajrayana.
It is also said that OM MANI PADME HUM provides powerful protection against all kinds of negative influences and various forms of disease.
HRIH, the "syllable-germ" of Avalokiteshvara, is often added to the mantra, which gives OM MANI PADME HUM HRIH.
HRIH, the essence of the compassion of all Buddhas, is the catalyst that makes this compassion active in order to transform our negative emotions into their kind of wisdom.
The significance of the six syllables of Om Mani Padme Hum is beautiful and immense. The first, Om is composed of three letters: A, U, M. These symbolize the body, the word and the unclean spirit of the practitioner; they also symbolize the body, the word and the pure and exalted spirit of a Buddha.
Om Mani Padme Hum also pronounces Om Mani Padme Hung in Tibetan.
Buddhism does not affirm that there is someone who from the beginning is free of faults and who possesses all the right qualities. The development of the body, the word and the pure mind is achieved by gradually leaving behind the unclean states by transforming them into pure states.
The path is indicated by the following four syllables:
Mani, which means "Jewel," symbolizes the factors of the method - the altruistic intention of becoming an enlightened, compassionate and loving being.
The two syllables, PADME, mean lotus and symbolize wisdom. Similarly, the lotus that grows in the mud but is not stained by the defects of the mud, wisdom can put you in a non-contradiction situation while it could be a contradiction if you did not possess wisdom.
Purity must be attained through an apparent unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable HUM, which indicates invisibility. According to the sutra, this invisibility of method and wisdom refers to the wisdom affected by the method and method affected by wisdom. The mantra vehicle (or tantra vehicle), refers to a consciousness in which there is a form full of wisdom and method as an undifferentiated entity. In terms of the seed syllables (of origin) of the five Buddhas, HUM is the seed syllable of the Akshobhya - the immutable, the invariable, which cannot be disturbed (morphed) by anything. :energy:
So the six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean that dependent on the practice of a path that is an invisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your body, your word and your unclean mind into an exalted and pure body, word and mind of a Buddha.
