This is the highest Mantra for mankind
gifted to us by the thousand Buddhas

sufferings , ill health , hell regions,

It will purify us and free us from all our negative
emotions of the Mind and speech.

This mantra saves us from the hell regions and
hungry ghosts which we have to encounter during
and after death.

Hence it is beneficial and a most valubale saviour
not only during Life on Earth
but also after Life , when we have to remain
and pass through the six Hell regions in the Bardos.

Each syllable in this six syllable Mantra liberates us
from one realm of suffering out of each of the six realms
of suffering filled existence.
OM liberates and purifies us from the emotions of
bliss and pride in the samsaric realm
of the Gods.

jealousy and lust for entertainment in the samsaric realm
of Demi-Gods.

passion and desire in the samsaric realm

A Very Very Important Message Regarding Mantras
Your outer world is governed by
your inner world, so Divine Powers
that are generated inside you ,
now start making all positive events
happen in your life in the outer world.

Nelumbo nucifera, known by a number of names including Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae.
From ancient times the lotus has been a divine symbol in Asian traditions representing the virtues of sexual purity and non-attachment.
Hindus revere it with the divinities Vishnu and Lakshmi often portrayed on a pink lotus in iconography. In the representation of Vishnu as Padmanabha (Lotus navel), a lotus issues from his navel with Brahma on it. Goddess Sarasvati is portrayed on a white-colored lotus.
Often used as an example of divine beauty, Vishnu is often described as the 'Lotus-Eyed One'. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. The growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise. In Hindu iconography, other deities, like Ganga and Ganesha are often depicted with lotus flowers as their seats.
The lotus plant is cited extensively within Puranic and Vedic literature, for example:
One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme Lord, is unaffected by sinful action, as the lotus is untouched by water.
—Bhagavad Gita 5.10:
In Chinese culture Confucian scholar Zhou Dunyi wrote:
I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.

Această plantă cu frunze şi flori deosebit de frumoase, împreună cu lotusul American, face parte din genul de plante acvatice Nelumbo şi nu trebuie confundată cu nufărul.
Lotusul este nativ din India şi se regăseşte în întreaga Asie. El creşte în lacuri, mlaştini şi în regiunile în care se produc inundaţii.  În religia şi cultura hindusă, lotusul este considerat plantă sacră (ca si busuiocul), el regăsindu-se în numeroase poveşti mitologice, în literatură şi artă, floarea sa fiind unul dintre cele mai vechi simboluri.
Potrivit credinţelor hinduse, la începutul timpurilor când nu exista nimic şi întregul univers era doar un ocean imens, protectorul vieţii, Prajapati, a văzut ieşind la suprafaţa apei o frunză de lotus. Iar dintr-o floare de lotus cu o mie de petale din aur strălucitor s-a născut noua lume.
Astfel, apa simbolizează elementul primordial din care a apărut viaţa reprezentată aici prin floarea de lotus.
Într-o altă versiune, la începutul timpurilor când nu mai exista nimic iar zeul Vishnu, păstrătorul vieţii, cel care se află în toate şi pretutindeni, medita netulburat în ceruri, din buricul său a răsărit un lujer la capătul căruia s-a deschis o floare de lotus minunată. În această floare stătea Brahma, zeul creaţiei. Rolul lui Brahma era să recreeze lumea după potopul ce distrusese pământul.Lotusul Sacru

Peaceful, tranquil, silent, idyllic, beautiful, calm, delicate .... these are words that come to mind when I look at your photographs, Daliana, for they describe both the place and your images of it.

I hope the mantras truly do create peace of mind and tranquility of spirit among those who are believers in the powers of their messages.

I would be/will be content to enjoy the magical properties of the place and your images of it.
