Deva Premal singing Om Mani Padme Hum
The mantra of Tantrik buddhism is ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’. Om is the sound of central enlightenment; ‘mani padme’ means ‘jewel in the lotus’ or ‘male with the female organ’, the state of completeness, energy infusing wisdom. ‘Hum’ is the sound of power, forcing the mantra into realization. This energy is often symbolised by an implement called the vajra, double-ended with ornate curbed prongs enclosing a central straight prong. All Tantrik Buddhists own one, which serves each person as a reservoir of personal power.
Vajrapani means ‘he who holds the vajra’. And to help forward his meditation, the Tantrik monk may also use a bell, whose rim he gently and continuously rubs with a stick so as to produce a sustained, gentle and entrancing hum. The sound is the symbol for the remotest expression of the subtlest Indian mantra ‘Om’ itself. For Tantra, like all good science, recognises that the fabric of even the densest-seeming objects is of an order related to vibration, which is symbolised for the human intelligence by sound.

There is Only One Religion -The Religion of Love. -Sai Baba
Dharma doesn’t necessarily mean following a mundane and boring life.
It means a life of high adventure, not a life of endless, boring repetition.
Souls have different journeys.
The best thing to know is, not what everybody else does,
but what you do. Self-discovery essentially is finding your own dharma, your own rhythm.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spritual beings having
a human experience.”
