om mani padme hung


om mani padme hung.

It is possible to count the number of raindrops falling during twelve years of monsoon but the merit of uttering the Six Syllables just once cannot be counted. It is possible to count all the grains sown on the four continents but the merit of uttering the Six Syllables just once cannot be counted. It is possible to count the drops of water in the great ocean, one by one, but the merit of uttering the Six Syllables just once cannot be counted. It is possible to count each hair on the bodies of all animals in existence but the merit of uttering the Six Syllables just once cannot be counted.
