Tibetan Buddhism Six Words Adjustable Sutra Ring
OM represents the body of all the buddhas; this is how almost all mantras begin too; MANI means "jewel" in Sanskrit; PADME, the Sanskrit pronunciation, or PEDME in Tibetan, means "lotus"; HUM represents the mind of all Buddhas and very often this is how mantras end.
MANI refers to the jewel that Chenrezig wears in his two central hands. PADME the lotus in your second left hand. Saying OM MANI PADME HUM we name Chenrezig through his attributes: "the one who carries the jewel and the lotus", "Chenrezig", "The Jewel of the Lotus" are two names of the same meditative deity or Yidam (manifestation of the qualities of the enlightened mind).
Each syllable allows us to close the door of the suffering of rebirth in one of the six kingdoms that make up the cycle of existence: OM closes the door of rebirth in the kingdom of the gods (Devas), MA the door of the world of the demigods ( Asuras), NEITHER the door of the human kingdom, PAD the door of the animal world, ME the door of the world of hungry spirits (Pretas), HUM the door of the infernal worlds.
Each syllable has a purifying effect: OM purifies the veils of the body, MA purifies the veils of speech, NI purifies the veils of the mind, PAD purifies the veils of disturbing emotions, ME purifies the veils of conditioning, latent, HUM purifies the veil that covers knowledge.
Each syllable is a prayer in itself: OM is the prayer directed to the body of the Buddhas, MA is the prayer directed to the speech of the Buddhas, NI is the prayer directed to the mind of the Buddhas, PAD the prayer directed to the qualities Of the Buddhas, ME the prayer directed to the activity of the Buddhas, HUM gathers the grace of the body, speech, mind, qualities and activity of the Buddhas.
The six syllables correspond to the six paramitas, or transcendental perfections:
OM corresponds to Generosity
MA to Ethical Conduct
PAD to Enthusiasm
ME to Concentration
HUM to Wisdom
