Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's definition
"The mantra Om Mani Päme Hum is a very powerful mantra yet so simple to practice, because the mantra encompasses the entire teaching of the buddha dharma. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, te syllable ma helps cultivate pure innocent ethics, the syllable Ni helps cultivate perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. The fourth syllable Pa, helps to culitvate perfection of perseverance, the syllable Me cultivates perfection in the practice of concentration, and hum the sixth final syllable cultivates perfection in the practice of wisdom.
"So with this definition; recitation of the mantra helps cultivate perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The journey of these six perfections is the journey walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. So this is how the mantra represents the whole teaching and path of the Buddhadharma. So this is why this mantra is so powerful"
If you find the definition confusing do not worry. Just have in mind that you are purifying your mind body and soul for the greater good of others and achieving more and more spiritual enlightenment with each chant.
