Since time immemorial, gau boxes have been used by practitioners of the Dharma, to house important texts such as mantras, prayers and images of the Buddha and important Buddhist deities and ritual objects. Keeping these sacred texts and images close to their hearts, allowed them to recite mantras, pray and meditate in times of need. One of the great benefits of wearing a gau box, is that it can empower us to courageously face adversity or find balance in our everyday lives. Simply by opening it up to read or recite the message contained inside, or pray or meditate, can help us to remember what matters most and helps us to feel grounded and in control of our emotions and thoughts.
The Om Mani Padme Hum mantra is one of the most sacred, revered and chanted mantras in all of Buddhism. Many Buddhist practitioners and pilgrims recite this mantra hundreds or even thousands of times a day. In Tibet, this mantra can be found printed on prayer flags, carved or painted on small or large stones, inserted into Buddhist gau lockets, written or engraved on Buddhist prayer wheels, statues, and jewelry such as pendants, medallions, bangles and rings. The Om Mani Padme Hum mantra is commonly translated as "The jewel is in the lotus".
However, there is no exact meaning for the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra. As the spiritual meaning extends transcends the literal meaning of its syllables. It is ultimately believed that every one of the Buddha’s teachings resides within this one powerful mantra. And whether chanted aloud or silently spoken to oneself, written down or viewed in written form, will invoke within the innately loving qualities of one's true nature.
"Om" is believed to be the sound of universal creation. "Mani" means "Jewel". Padme refers to the sacred lotus flower. And Hum means "The Spirit of Enlightenment".
