ART PEACE

OM – purifies ego establish generosity,
MA – purifies jealousy establish ethics,
NI – purifies desire establish patience,
PAD – purifies prejudice establish perseverance,
ME – purifies possessiveness establish concentration,
HUM – purify hatred establish wisdom

This Diwali we went on a diversity trip – one of the destinations was Namgyal Monastery (Dalai Lama’s Temple), I came to know many wonderful things about Tibetans and their culture – and I am in the process of putting it in a blog. For now let’s talk about the Mani\Prayer wheel –  these are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. Rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many, many copies of the mantra(Om Mani Padme Hum), printed in an ancient Indian script(Sanskrit) or in Tibetan script, are wound around an axle in a protective container and spun around and around. Tibetan’s  believe that chanting or spunning of the mantra invokes the spiritual power and blessing of Chenrezig(Tibetan name)\Avalokiteshwara. They believe that Chenrezig is within us because love and compassion are not qualities added to the mind but are inherent in our true nature. Wonderful people, place and teachings!!!

  4. I’m looking forward to your posts about the Tibetans. I think the Dalai Lama is a wonderful human being.

  5. Thanks for explaining this; I hadn’t realized that inside the wheel were carefully prepared copies of the mantra.
