"COMPASSION can be put into practice if one recognizes the fact that every human being is a member of humanity and the human family regardless of differences in: religion, culture, color, and creed. Deep down there is NO difference." The Dalai Lama
Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ is the six syllabled mantra particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. Mani means "the jewel" and Padma means "the lotus".
