Om Mani Padme Hum ओं मणिपद्मे हूं

I'm really looking forward to Taking Refuge and the Five Precepts Ceremony this weekend, when I will officially become Buddhist. It is a huge commitment to undertake but one that I am happily doing.

I have improved my Buddhist studies recently and now visit the temple most weeks, sometimes a few times a week for chanting and education. The above mantra is not actually one that we chant regularly in Mahayana Buddhism, it is more associated with Tibetan Buddhism I believe, but it is one of my favourites.
