Chime with these Beautiful Handcrafted Tibetan Bells, Embossed with OM Mani Padme Hum!
Tibetan bells, or 'Tingsha', are used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. Two cymbals are joined and struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone.
Embossed with OM Mani Padme Hum, this one powerful mantra is believed to contain every one of the Buddha’s teachings. Repeated over and over again OM Mani Padme Hum invokes the loving and unconditional qualities of compassion.
Often seen in jewellery and numerous other forms in Tibet, it is said that even the simple act of gazing upon the mantra will bring about the same benevolent effects.
According to the Dalai Lama, OM Mani Padme Hum has the power to “transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech and mind of a Buddha.” Tibetan culture tells us that to deeply know this phrase, to bring it into the very depths of one’s being, is to attain enlightenment.
OM (or Aum)
OM is believed to be the primordial sound of all creation. The universe was created with OM and it holds within it all that is, was and ever will be. Buddhists believe that the sound vibration of OM cleanses away pride.
The ma syllable in mani is associated with dissolving jealousy and the attachment to fleeting pleasures. It lives within the samsaric realm of the jealous gods and reciting ma over and over helps us loosen our jealous attachments while cultivating ethical behavior.
The ni syllable in particular is believed to dissolve our attachments to desire and passion while cultivating our ability to be patient with ourselves and others. It resides within the samsaric realm of the human being. The entire word, mani, means "jewel."
Pad is a syllable that dissolves our attachments to the many prejudices and judgmental notions we have while cultivating the quality of perseverance. It lives within the samsaric realm of the animals.
The me syllable helps dissolve our attachments to being possessive while also cultivating our powers of concentration. It resides within the samsaric realm of the hungry ghost. Together, padme means "lotus," and represents wisdom.
With the syllable, hum, we work to dissolve our attachments to aggression and hatred. We instead cultivate our own innate wisdom. Hum is said to lie within the samsaric realm of hell. Hum also indicates that which cannot be disturbed by anything. It is unshakeable and unmoveable.
