Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods) Ma purifies jealousy and need for entertainment (realm of the jealous gods) Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm) Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm) Me purifies poverty and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts) Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm) The mantra is easy to say yet quite powerful, because it contains the essence of our being. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics, and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Päd, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom.
