Mani Wall

Mani Wall

Mani Stones are stone plates with the Tibetan Buddhist inscription 'om mani padme hum'. Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying this mantra out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. Viewing the written form of the mantra is said to have the same effect.
