Bless Your iPod

om-mani-padma-hum.gif

"Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum, invites the blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion."

Bare with us here, there is a point!

"They also believe you can produce the same effect by spinning the written form of the mantra around in a prayer wheel (called "Mani wheels" by the Tibetans). The effect is said to be multiplied when more copies of the mantra are included, and spinning the Mani wheels faster increases the benefit as well."

Remember "Giiiive me the kniiife" from Eddie Murphy's The Golden Child?

"His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has said that having the mantra on your computer works the same as a traditional Mani wheel. As the digital image spins around on your hard drive, it sends the peaceful prayer of compassion to all directions and purifies the area."

So just by downloading the above image to your iPod (or hard drive) you can bless it, and all that surrounds it.

All the Buddhist stuff in quotes came from here. Yes, this was sort-of mentioned on slashdot ages ago, but putting it on your iPod is my “spin” on things.
