Mani Stone, Khumbu Valley - Nepal

'Om Mani Padma Hum' - the most common Tibetan Buddhism prayer, found everywhere in the jagged hills of Nepal. People who learn about the mantra naturally want to know what it means, and often ask for a translation into English or some other Western language. However, Om Mani Padme Hum can not really be translated into a simple phrase or even a few sentences.
