This beautiful original painting is of fine art quality and has been created by master painters from Nepal. At the centre of the mandala is a conch which symbolises the wisdom of the Buddha's teachings and protects all sentient beings from suffering. The compassion mantra, Om Mani Padme hung extends radially outwards and is surrounded by the eight auspicious symbols and an abstract golden pattern. The same compassion mantra is reiterated again on the outside, but this time, it's large and vibrant. All text is in the Tibetan script.
The sound of Om is associated with purification whilst reciting the sacred mantra Om Mani Padme Hung is used to cultivate compassion during meditation.
