Om Mani Padme Hum
By:
Post # 1
I know Om Mani Padme Hum is a very common mantra for many people, but not many people know how to use it.

This chanting brings great healing, cleansing, protection, and life changing. This chanting will bring you to a divine place when your life ends, and that place is full of divine beings. The more you chant, the more powerful it gets. You cannot expect a miracle after chanting a few times. The requirement of chanting Om Mani Padme Hum is 1,000 times a day at least, the more the better. After you chant it for a long time, your spiritual energy will increase, and you will feel it very soon.

Here is what you can do with the mantra.

#1
Before you drink a cup of water, juice or tea, Chant about 7 times Om Mani Padme Hum and blow it into the beverage, and then you drink it. After you chant it, the beverage will turn into a blessing drink.

#2
I prefer you do this everyday, there are many different types of spirits out there in the world. There is a type called "Hungry Ghost", they are hungry, but they are not allowed to eat because their throat is on fire. So you can help them by chanting Om Mani Padme Hum on some food like bread or cooked rice, and then leave it under the trees or bushes. (Don't use meat, vegetables or grains are fine). After chanting, the food is now allowed for those spirits to eat, and even animals eat it will get blessed.

In Mahayana Buddhism (my faith) there isn't a set amount of number times you should chant, but is recommended 108 times.
But if you chant it one time with sincere heart, then its hundreds of billions times more powerful then just chanting it 1,000 times a day.
From what I was taught, Hungry Ghosts were sinful humans that was starved to death and was greedy of food and wealth. Chanting the mantra relieves them from suffering and lets them be reborn on Earth or a higher realm of life.As for the uses of this mantra, it is countless.
This is what I was taught.
Happy day to al!

Yes, you are right. But not everyone can chant it sincerely at the beginning. I used to chant it 5,000 to 10,000 times a day with my chanting beads. The more I chant, the more sincere I get and the more purer my mind gets. I am just expecting beginners here. Many masters said when blessing something or someone with mantras, try chanting it 7, 21, 49 or 108 times. If they can chant it with sincere heart, and with a pure mind, then that would be great.

I think one of the important parts of the mantra is realizing that each syllable is meant to free something else from the need of reincarnation.

Aum frees the gods, Ma(n) frees the demi-gods, Ni frees humans, Pad frees animals, Me frees hungry ghosts (which you two have already been discussing), and Hung (or Hum) frees the demons that live in hell. The silence after saying the mantra is an important part of the mantra itself because it signifies that there is no one left to free, and that is the ultimate goal.

Since lover17 brought up saying it with a sincere heart, I thought it might be beneficial to understand one of its purposes so that you know what it is you are supposed to sincerely mean. There are wholly personal benefits to it, such as purifying you from greed, aggression, etc., but I contend that those benefits are best accomplished through intending this goodness for others. The six sacred syllables of Avalokiteshvara, who embodies all compassion, is an exercise in compassion in that you are wishing freedom for literally all of creation.

Guan Yin attain Full Enlightenment by chanting Om Mani Padme Hum, and the full meaning of the mantra means to end the six realm reincarnation. Buddha said he can predict every drop of the rain within 12 years, but he cannot estimate how much benefit by just chanting Om Mani Padme Hum one time.

Guan Yin has not reached enlightenment yet.
Her/his vows are not fulfilled yet.

SunYote you are correct about the meaning.

I've been taught another meaning, but you are correct.

As for Guan Yin being a fully enlighten, she/he is not.
Guan Yin was once a Buddha, but not anymore, she is now a Bodhisattva, a Buddha to be.

He has reached Full Enlightenment as a Buddha, but due to his Great Compassion and Vow, he remain as a Bodhisattva. Just like many Bodhisattva, they have reached Full Enlightenment, but remain as a Bodhisattva to benefit the beings. That's why a Sutra said that GuanYin can form into any thing like, human, heavenly beings, arhat, Bodhisattva, or Buddha...etc.

His Buddha name is ZhengFaMingRuLai

and one more thing, there is more than one GuanYin, anyone who practices and make Great Compassion Vows are GuanYin as well. GuanYin is not a person, it is a vow.

Even GuanYin is now a Bodhisattva, but his Buddha form still exist, because Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha exist in the past, present and the future.

When Buddha was talking about the Earth Store Sutra, Buddha said, Countless Buddhas from the past, present and future came to listen to the Buddha's lecture about the Earth Store Sutra. Maybe our future Buddha form went there as well.

I know. That is what I said, but in more easier terms.
