Around the world, millions chant “Om Mani Padme Hum” each day. Many Buddhist children learn to chant Chenrezig’s compassion mantra from very young ages. Chenrezig, also known as Avalokiteshvara (Sanskrit) and Kwan Yin (Guanyin, Kuan Yin), is the Great Bodhisattva of Compassion whose loving-kindness is iconic of Metta, Bodhichitta and love in Buddhism.
Bring even more compassion into your practice with a daily recitation of Om Mani Padme Hum. Or, chant along with Yoko Dharma and enjoy the video visualizations on screen. Please enjoy! May all beings benefit. Play here (full screen available by clicking icon in bottom right of video):
Om Mani Padme Hum (in Tibetan “Om Mani Peme Hung”) is near-universal to most Mahayana Buddhists. In some ways, Om Mani Padme Hum is the best known of mantras; yet, in other ways, it is profound and deeply meaningful, with many layers of meaning.

I sing to create awareness and positive global change. Invoking healing, peace and transformation through the power of music, my intention and my lyrics.
