Making patterns is a fun side project. We call this one “Free Tibet Party.” Its inspired by the brightly painted Om Mani Padme Hum inscriptions on the rocks outside of the Tibetan government in exile in Dharamsala, India. You can get this pattern printed on a variety of products on our Society 6 page (https://society6.com/hippieisland or search Free Tibet Party on Society6.com).
Saying or seeing “Om Mani Pande Hum” invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. Though it’s hard to translate, I was taught that it loosely means “Love and compassion for all sentient beings.” I have often meditated with this or chanted it in my head when I know I need to love my fellow man a little more. What a great sentiment to wear on your body while practicing yoga!
