Buddhist prayer carved into gold plated singing Bowl with stand and stick.
The Buddhist prayer in Tibetan language translates to Om Mani Padme Hum. Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used mantra in Buddhism, recited by laymen as well as ordained nuns and monks. Whether you are new to meditation or a devout practitioner, Om Mani Padme Hum is an excellent mantra to recite in just about any context. According to the Tibetan tradition, all six syllables in the mantra are said to contain the sum of Buddha’s teachings. When translated literally, Om Mani Padme Hum means, “The jewel is in the lotus”, or “Hail to the jewel in the lotus,”. Tibetan singing bowls are a type of bell that vibrates and produces a rich, deep tone when played. Also known as singing bowls or Himalayan bowls, Tibetan singing bowls are said to promote relaxation and offer powerful healing properties. Buddhist monks have long used Tibetan singing bowls in meditation practice. In addition, some wellness practitioners (including music therapists, massage therapists, and yoga therapists) use Tibetan singing bowls during treatment.
