This beautiful chant was written with my dear friend Haitch, after many years of sharing devotional chants together. A traditional mantra from many traditions, but most popular in Tibetan Buddhism.

The first word Aum/Om is a sacred syllable found in Indian religions, the 'creation mantra'. The word Mani means "jewel" or "bead". Padme is the "lotus flower" (the Buddhist sacred flower), and Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment.



There is a jewel, in the lotus flower
Unfolding deep, deep within my soul

To be a jewel, in the lotus flower
Unfolding is, the highest goal
