ANSWER:

I use this slide in my presentation on an introduction to Buddhism

OM MANI PADME HUM

* OM, composed of three sound A, U, and M, stands for the practitioner's impure body,

speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of an enlightened person, a Buddha * MANI ( jewel) symbolizes the altruistic intention to become enlightened

* PADME (lotus) a symbol of wisdom * HUM indicates indivisibility.

"Thus the six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean

that by the practice of a path which is an indivisible union

of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure

body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body,

speech, and mind of a Buddha. "

HH the Dalai Lama

ANOTHER ANSWER: Although many people believe this mantra refers to the jewel and lotus as interlocked symbols, I have also heard that it is a simple invocation of Buddha Avalokiteshvara - "OM Jewel & Lotus [Holder] HUM". Avalokiteshvara is often shown with four or more arms, two of which hold a jewel at his heart, representing his devotion to his precious Spiritual Guide, and another one of which holds a lotus flower, representing purity arising from impurity, like a lotus or water-lily - growing up from mud, through water, and opening to the light as a clean object. Many Buddhas have simple mantras like this, or even simpler name-only mantras, for example OM AH VAJRAPANI HUM, the mantra of Vajrapani. However, this is not to say that the image of the jewel in the lotus is not valid nor of value. It is always possible to derive new inspiration from an old symbol.
