Around the world, millions chant “Om Mani Padme Hum” each day. Many Buddhist children learn to chant Chenrezig’s compassion mantra from very young ages. Chenrezig, also known as Avalokiteshvara (Sanskrit) and Kwan Yin (Guanyin, Kuan Yin), is the Great Bodhisattva of Compassion whose loving-kindness is iconic of Metta, Bodhichitta and love in Buddhism.
Bring even more compassion into your practice with a daily recitation of Om Mani Padme Hum. Or, chant along with Yoko Dharma and enjoy the video visualizations on screen. Please enjoy! May all beings benefit. Play here (full screen available by clicking icon in bottom right of video):
Om Mani Padme Hum (in Tibetan “Om Mani Peme Hung”) is near-universal to most Mahayana Buddhists. In some ways, Om Mani Padme Hum is the best known of mantras; yet, in other ways, it is profound and deeply meaningful, with many layers of meaning.

bout Yoko Dharma
From her website:“Sometimes when you wait, it gives you time to grow and flower into something much more beautiful then you had ever imagined. This is the case with Yoko Dharma. The last 5 years for this Canadian born recording artist has been full of growth opportunities as she has patiently been waiting to record her RnB debut album “Freedom Reign.” Now her album is almost complete! Producer Marty Rifkin is working on this album with Yoko, bringing “Freedom Reign” to life and helping Yoko manifest her vision into the world. Marty has recorded with Jewel, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and numerous other well-known artists. The culturally diverse world music influences drawn on to make “Freedom Reign” album, stem from Yoko’s passionate love of world music and unique world instruments, which are all a part of Yoko’s intriguing sound. Her motivation to break through cultural barriers using music as the conduit for positive global change and peace, is a call to action and transformation of one’s mind, which is given to the listener through Yoko’s conscious lyrics throughout the album. Steeped in the basic human qualities of love, compassion and awareness, Yoko draws from the deep rooted wisdom that Tibetan Buddhism has given her in her life and reflects this in her songwriting. Between Marty Rifkin’s expertise and Yoko Dharma’s strong message and powerfully sweet voice, I have no doubt that Yoko’s debut RnB album will shake the globe, stirring international fans everywhere!
