The mantra of Padmasambhava   called the Vajra Guru Mantra, OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU is one of the sacred mantra in Tibetan Buddhism which purifies your body, speech and mind if you recite it in a proper way.

OM AH HUM

The syllables OM AH HUM have outer, inner, and “secret “meanings. OM stands for the body, AH For the speech, and HUM for the mind. They represent the transformative blessings of the body, speech, and mind of all the Buddha’s.

VAJRA

VAJRA is compared to the diamond, the strongest and most precious of stones. Just as a diamond can cut through anything but is  itself completely indestructible ,so the unchanging ,non dual wisdom of the Buddha’s can never be harmed or destroyed by ignorance ,and can cut through all delusion and obscurations.

GURU

GURU means “weighty”; someone replete with every wonderful quality, who embodies wisdom, knowledge, compassion, and skillful. Just as gold is the weightiest and most precious of metals, so the inconceivable, flawless qualities of the Guru the master make him unsurpassable, and above all things in excellence.

PADMA

PADMA means lotus, and signifies the Lotus family of the Buddha’s, and specifically their aspect of enlightened speech. As Padmasambhava is the direct emanation, the Nirmanakaya, of Bud-dha Amitabha, who is the primordial Buddha of the Lotus family, he  is known as” PADMA.”His name Padmasambhava, the” Lotus-born,” in fact refers to the story of his birth on a blossoming lotus flower.

SIDDHI HUM

SIDDHI means “real accomplishment,””attainment,””blessing,” and” realization.”There are two kinds of siddhis: ordinary and  supreme. Through receiving the blessing of ordinary siddhis, all

obstacles in our lives, such as ill-health, are removed, all our good  aspirations are fulfilled ,benefits like wealth and prosperity and long  life accretes, and all of life’s various circumstances become auspicious and conducive to spiritual practice, and the realization of  enlightenment.  SIDDHI HUM is said to draw in all the siddhis like a magnet that attracts iron filings.

HUM represents the wisdom mind of the Buddha’s, and is the sacred catalyst of the mantra. It is like proclaiming its power and truth:”So be it!”

The essential meaning of the mantra is: “I invoke you, the Vajra Guru,  Padmasambhava,by your blessing may you grant us ordinary and supreme siddhis,”  ( Tibetan Book of Living and dying)

  8. I know there is something powerful about chanting. Has to do with the frequency of the words and sound and their alignment with the frequency of the body and the universe.
