Talisman | Om Mani Padme Hum Lotus Barrel
The mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used mantra in Buddhism.

In Buddhism, the bud of the lotus symbolizes potential.
The purity of a lotus flower represents an awakening, spiritual growth, enlightenment and faithfulness.
Just as the lotus flower emerges from the muddy water clean, the lotus also represents purity of body, speech, and mind.
The lotus could be thought of as an awakened mind, which grows naturally toward the warmth and light of truth, love and compassion.
The lotus may appear fragile on the surface, but it is flexible and strong, securely anchored under the surface of the water.
It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals.
