Mani Chanting

Hi all,

We are going to recite Om Mani Padme Hung, mantra of Chenrezig ( Guan Yin ), the Boddhisattva who represents the compassion of all the Buddhas. Om Mani Padme Hung is also one of the most famous mantra recited among all Buddhists.

The significance and benefits of reciting Om Mani Padme Hung will also be shared by Bro Jianhong, he will also be teaching on how to visualize Chenrezig in different form, few of which like 4-Arm Chenrezig, or 1000-Arm Chenrezig.

The practice of reciting Om Mani Padme Hung is very meritorious, so take this opportunity to recite together. The more the merrier, the more the more collective karma and thus with the karma collected, we shall aspire for SPBS to progress along the path, and all sentient beings to meet with the precious Dharma and gain enlightenment soon.

As many atoms there are, the benefits of rectiting Om Mani Padme Hung cannot be grasped.
