Ten Million Mani Mantras
Chicago KTC is embarking on an ambitious project for ourselves, our teachers, His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa, and all sentient beings. Our goal is to accumulate 10,000,000 recitations of Om Mani Peme Hung.
The noble and supreme Avalokiteshvara is the essence of the compassion of the Buddhas. Reciting his mantra develops love and compassion, and decreases hatred and envy.
One of the most beautiful aspects of this project is that everyone and anyone can participate simply by counting your Mani mantra recitations wherever you are, entering in your email and the number of Mani mantras you recited. From there we will update the the thermometer on this page within 24 hours so you can see the progress of our virtual sangha in accomplishing this goal. Six syllables repeated ten million times each to to tame our afflications through mindfulness, awareness, and carefulness .
