BLACK MANTRA | SINGING BOWL
Sound is undoubtedly one of the most powerful media, as it can take the human spirit in different states of consciousness.
Unique cast bowl with traditional sutra or mantra and auspicious symbols. The symbol featured in these bowls is OM, which is a sacred sound that is known generally as the sound of the universe. Om is all-encompassing, the essence of ultimate reality, and unifies everything in the universe. The mantra marked on the bowl represents the beginning, the loving-kindness, and for all to be well and happy. These bowls come with a hand-carved wooden striker. Cushions are available for purchase.
MANTRA | OM MANI PADME HUM
This mantra means: The Jewel is in the Lotus.
The first, Om is composed of three letters. A, U, and M. These symbolize the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.
Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method—the altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassionate, and love.
The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom, just as a lotus grows forth from mud but is not sullied by the faults of mud, so wisdom is capable of putting you in a situation of non-contradiction whereas there would be a contradiction if you did not have wisdom.
Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility. According to the sutra system, this indivisibility of method and wisdom refers to wisdom affected by method and method affected by wisdom.
