: what does "om manipadme hum" mean?
"It literally translates to 'The Jewel is in the Lotus' What it means is that wisdom and compassion-the jewels that we all seek-are inherently within us all, like pure seeds blossoming and unfolding within our own tender unguarded hears. What we seek, we ARE."
-from Awakening the Buddha Within, by Lama Surya Das
Hope this helps!
