The mantra Om Mani Padme Hum (literally: "Aum, to the Jewel in the Lotus, hum) is recited by Tibetan Buddhists to invoke Chenrezi, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Repeating this mantra accumulates merit and eases negative karma; meditating upon it is believed to purify the mind and body.
Spinning prayer wheels, physical or digital, are believed to confer the same benefit as speaking the mantra. It is often recited with the aid of a mala (string of prayer beads.)

This blog is not about religion. One of the purposes of this blog is to find tools that might help you when you are in great pain. Chanting was very helpful during my last visit to the hospital. The chanting and music has a natural calming effect on the brain. A focal point can be used, such as a stone or a lit candle, with very good results.
