The mantra of Chenrezig (Chengrechi) is probably the most popular Buddhist mantra in the world. We are talking about the mantra ‘OM MANI PADME HUNG’. And it is the mantra of the Great Bodhisattva of Compassion, Chenrezig. It is his Tibetan name. But many may be familiar with him under his Sanskrit name Avalokiteshvara. As practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism we probably know that Chenrezig is not a real person, but a part of an aspect of our enlightened Buddha Mind. But as limited people, we can imagine more easily him in a bright white and perfect body with all signs of Bodhisattva of Compassion, with 4 arms, with two palms, joined in a praying gesture, in third hand holding a lotus flower near his ear, symbolizing the purity of his mind, in his right hand holding mala (prayer beads) and the six syllables of om mani Padme hung joyfully dancing in his heart.
