Buddha Eye Mantra Mandala
In the painting you can see that outer layer is the fire meaning that all your negative emotions such as hatred, anger will be burnt. And in the middle buddha eye is surrounded by prayer “Om Mani Padme Hum”.
The six syllables, om mani pad me hum, mean that in dependence on 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.
