*Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum are the six true words, but what do they mean?
The six true words: Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum is the most common mantra in Tibet, recited by Buddhists, painted or carved on rocks, prayer wheels, or yak skulls and seen around Tibet very commonly. According to Tibetan culture, it is said that all the teachings of Buddha are contained in this mantra, and that to know the phrase is to know enlightenment. Tibetan people, who are almost all Buddhists, believe that it is very good to practice the mantra of Chenrezi, the Bodhisattva of Compassion (the protective deity of Tibet), which may relieve negative karma, accumulate merit, help rescue them from the sea of suffering and achieve Buddhahood.
In the Buddhist tradition, special words are repeated over and over again until they begin to gather a certain "emptiness". The word emptiness here does not mean one experiences nothing, but rather it is about experiencing ourselves in the moment, without the usual attachment of ego. There is no emptiness, but rather we are filled with an inner awareness, which give us the intuitive knowledge to save ourselves from suffering.
