Are You Chanting or Praying Mechanically?

We do many chants & mantras mechanically without actually knowing their meanings or essence. To understand the meaning of a chant helps us live it's essence in its truest form & the energy that resonates out of that awareness is way beyond the mechanical chanting. 

Sharing some light today on the Powerful Tibetan Chant "Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum." It is a powerful 6 Syllable Chant, and is commonly known to be carved onto rocks (called "mani stones") or written on paper which is inserted into prayer wheels. When an individual spins the wheel, it is said that the effect is the same as reciting the mantra as many times as it is duplicated within the wheel. 

Here is the beautiful meaning of one of this most powerful Tibetan Chants; "Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum."
* "Om" purifies ego and pride (realm of the Gods) & represents Bliss & Generosity;

* "Ma" purifies jealousy and need/lust for entertainment (realm of the demon gods/Asuras) & represents Ethics;

* "Ni" purifies passion and desire (human realm) & represents Patience;

* "Pad" purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm) & represents Diligence;

* "Me" purifies poverty and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts) represents Renunciation of worldly attachments;

* "Hum" purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm) & represents Wisdom.

Thus in a few words, according to the 14th Dalai Lama, the six syllable Chant, "Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum", means that "In dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."

So don't be a Herd mentality, & do things mechanically. Make efforts to know your prayers & chants. Now when you Chant this Mantra, see its resonance increasing more powerfully. Happy Chanting ♥ © Roshani/Aug2013
