Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, December 5th 2018, Om Mane Padme Hum


Om Mani Padme Hum

Dear friends of MLMM,

I love to take you with me into the realm of the Himalayas and the Tibetan Buddhism/Lamaism. And first I love to look with you all to the wellknown mantra Om Mani Padme Hum which has the following meaning:

Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods); Ma purifies jealousy and need for entertainment (realm of the jealous gods); Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm); Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm); Me purifies greed and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts); Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm).

This wonderful mantra has six (6) syllables, which stand for six (6) Paramitas. “Om” stands for generosity and purifies pride/ego. The color which belongs to “Om” is white and it stands for the deity of Wisdom.

My attempt to write a haiku inspired on “Om” …:

entering Heavens
finally purified and without ego
I became wise

And now … your task: Try to write a haiku or haibun (without restrictions) inspired on this wonderful mantra.

Have fun!

About Chèvrefeuille

I am a Dutch haiku poet. And I am the owner and host of the weblog "Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme" on Blogger (or Blogspot). I am writing haiku since the late eighties and in 2005 I became an international known haiku poet and in 2011 ten of my haiku were included in a worldwide anthology "Spasms of Light". With that anthology I became an even more known haiku poet. In October 2012 I started my daily haiku meme.

    this is a wonderful post – thank you Chèvrefeuille, – and I was fortune to experience an unexpected brief “om” moment, but it didn’t last … I sneezed!

    so much for quiet contemplation –
