OM MANI PADME HUM Well you have already read the meaning of the "OM MANI PADAME HUM" in this Blog. If you are new reader of this blog you may like to know what is the meaning of the "OM MANI PADAME HUM", simply translate as : 'Hail, the jewel in the lotus' is a six syllable invocation or Mantra originates form Chenrezig, the Tibetan name for the Bodhisatva of Compassion (Sanskrit: Avalokiteshvara, one who is invoked as the Protector from danger.)

One can find this Mantra inscribed outwardly in the prayer wheels with millions of this mantra inscribed on scroll of paper inside the prayer wheels. The devotee turning one round of the prayer wheel means he recites this mantra millions of times. As this mantra is thought to save one from all dangers, it is widely used in pendants, rings, Bangles etc.

So let's back to the topic , i would like to share some nice hand made 92.5% Silver Bangles and rings with inscribed Mantra "OM MANI PADAME HUM". Also read previous Post where i have post Some Bangles inscribed Green Tara Mantra "OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA".

Also We have Bangle that inscribe with other mantra ie: "Om Namo Shivaye" (Shiva Mantra) "OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA" (Tara Mantra).

Avalokiteshvara has been regarded as the most important Bodhisatwa of Tibet, the essence of speech of all Buddha’s and the manifestation of their compassion. It is claimed that one who recites "OM MANI PADAME HUM" mantra will be saved from all dangers and will be protected. This mantra is widely used in Mahayana Buddhism.

Vajradhara The Thunderbolt-bearer

posted on 27 Aug 2008 13:32 by dzibeads in STATUEs

Vajradhara [Adi-Buddha] [Thunderbolt-bearer]

Symbol: Vajra [thunderbolt], ghanta [bell]

Mudra: vajra-hum-kara Color: dark blue Shakti: Prajnaparamita

Vajradhara, the 'Indestructible', lord of all mysteries, master of all secrets, is an exoteric representation of Adi-Buddha ( in vajrayana, Adi Buddha is regarded as the highest deity of the Buddhist pantheon), and in this form is believed to reign over the Easter Quarter. According to Mahayana school, it is to Vajradhara that the subdued and conquered evil spirits swear allegiance and renounce all active opposition to the Buddhist faith.



Certain Lamaist sects identified Vajradhara with Vajrasattva , while others looked upon Vajrasattva as an active form of Vajradhara, who was too lost in divine quietude to occupy him directly with the affairs of sentient beings. Others again worshipped Vajradhara as a supreme deity distinct and apart from Vajrasattva. The two greatest sects of Mahayana school: Kargyu-pa and Gelugs-pa acknowledged Vajradhara as supreme, and looked upon as Adi-Buddha.

Vajradhara is always represented seated, with lotus posture and wears the Boddhisattva crown as well as dress and ornaments. His arms are crossed on his breast in the vajra-hum-kara mudra holding The Vajra and Ghanta . He is in dark blue color (see the picture).

Vajradhara is the primordial buddha, the dharmakaya buddha and is regarded as the highest deity in the Buddhist pantheon. Vajradhara, expresses the quintessence of buddhahood itself. Vajradhara represents the essence of the historical Buddha's realization of enlightenment.
