Om Lah Mantra, Mantra/Spell?

Postby Zimesky » Mon May 13, 2013 10:17 pm

This is probably delving fairly deep into the esoteric realms here, but I was wondering if anybody has any knowledge about this Sanskrit saying?
I've heard of it being used as a protection mantra/spell or purifying Mantra, but I can't seem to find any info about it. The place I found it initially used it in a ceremony to feed hungry ghosts with some rice and water.

If somebody /anybody knows anything please drop in and share!

Hello Zimesky,

I suggest that you ask your question over at our Mahayna/Vajrayana sister website:

---It's not what happens to you in life that is important ~ it's what you do with it ---
