Om Mani Padme Hum - Buddhism Mantra's and Prayer

This Months has been the Busiest Months for me, I couldn't Get Pictures nor any Post for this Blog. Anyway, Back Agian, How You doing?
The Om mani padme hum (Derived from the Sanskrit, Devanagari ॐ मणि पद्मे हूँ, IAST oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ) is probably the most famous mantra in Buddhism, the six syllabled mantra of the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig, Chinese Guanyin). The mantra is particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara.

The Dalai Lama is said to be an incarnation of Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara, so the mantra is especially revered by his devotees and it is commonly carved onto rocks and written on paper which is then inserted into prayer wheels to increase its effects.(Read More) - Source - Wikipedia

Hi! Ugyen,

Thank you for making my time the most enjoyable one by taking me back to our home, Bhutan. I am missing it so terribly. Nobody must have ever missed h/her home as much as I am missing mine now. Anyways, my exams were ok, could have been much better, you know as it happens in a normal life. The real one is yet to come, which starts from next week. I am little bit stressed and scared about it. But let's see how it goes, shall we?

I look forward to seeing what the new stadium looks like pretty soon. So please do keep us updated.

Cheers
Ugyen:)

Hey! Ugyen, I hope all is fine with you. I am fine and can't wait to finish with the exams. By the way, I have a question i.e. Has the date for the official coronation of the fifth King been announced? Looks like it because I can't get an access to the website www.bhutan2008.bt. Anyways, if you do anything about it, will you please let me know as soon as possible? That's all I wanted to say for today. Your initiative is much appreciated, my friend. Thanks a lot for everything and keep us posted whenever you can. Take care and good luck with everything you do.
Cheers
Ugyen:)
