Abstract

Om Mani Padme Hum is a six syllable mantra in Tibetian Buddhism associated with the bodhisattva – Avalokitesvara. This mantra as known by the Buddhist generates positive energies within the body through mystical vibrations and frequencies when chanted repeatedly. The mantra has shown enhanced cognitive effects in organisms without auditory apparatus where the interaction is assumed to be taking place at a cellular and biochemical level (Pereira 2015a, b; Pereira 2016a,b). Based on the results of these studies, this paper evaluates the frequencies associated with each syllable of the mantra comparing it to therapeutic/healing effects that have been known or studied for some frequencies by holistic healers, meditators and non-invasive medical practitioners. The study confirms that the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is made up of frequencies that are known to generate powerful vibrations when chanted. These vibrations during chanting are presumed to be creating a resonance effect,as a result of formation of constructive interference patterns between the frequencies of each syllable which maybe the reason this chant exhibits a therapeutic/ healing effect on the body and its
functions.
