Something special to start September: a beautiful rendition of om mani padme hum.
This is a very deep, sacred Buddhist mantra that was an important part of my Buddhist retreat in Bhutan. We would join and chant “om mani padme hum” to all beings.
You can read the Dalai Lama’s explanation of its meaning in this post. He says, in part:
The six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean that in dependence
on the practice which is in indivisible union of method and wisdom,
you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure
body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.
Chant along or simply listen and let the profound meaning of the mantra infuse your mind and body.
