A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
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” …:
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.
When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.
