Sanskrit Meditation Mantras – Om Mani Padme Hum

Good afternoon beautiful people,

I’d like to share with you the beautiful and complementary powers of sanskrit meditation mantras to help assist in your meditation.  Said on a regular basis these can change the way you think and invite energies into your life.  Sanskrit sylables and words resonate with us in our bodies and our higher selves.

This is the first of three posts, but before we get on to today’s mantra let us consider that most famous mantra ‘OM’.  Sometimes celebrated and sometimes ridiculed by the media; ‘OM’ is considered to help us achieve harmonic resonance with higher powers and is a corner stone of sanskrit mantras.  It has been described as the sound of the Universe when comparing it to the pitch of the universe – 432 Hertz, which is the natural musical pitch of the Universe (Mandy Burstein, yoga instructor and writer).

The first mantra I would like to show you is another famous mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum.  Known as the universal mantra, it is often translated as ‘I am the jewel of the Lotus flower’.  In Tibetan Buddhism it invokes and invites feelings of compassion.  Find more information here.

Om Mani Padme Hum is pronounced Ohm mah nee pahd may hum.

Love and blessings,

Susan xx
