In Buddhism, the bud of the lotus symbolizes potential.
The lotus flower represents an awakening, spiritual growth, and enlightenment.
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.
The lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness.
Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used mantra in Buddhism.
"The six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."
- Dalai Lama

Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.
