Vietnamese Buddhist Song – Kim Linh & Nhat Quoc, Tan Quoc

Singer Kim Linh comes from a family that loves art. From a young age, the rustic melodies of Vietnamese people with lullabies made her more passionate about music.

When Kim Linh grew up in life, and started with a passion for music Linh chose the artistic path of being a singer.

Oṃ maṇi padme huṃ is the six-syllabled Sanskrit mantra particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion.

The first word Aum/Om is a sacred syllable in various Indian religions, and Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment.

In Tibetan Buddhism, this is the most ubiquitous mantra and the most popular form of religious practice, performed by laypersons and monastics alike.

It is also an ever present feature of the landscape, commonly carved onto rocks, known as mani stones, painted into the sides of hills or else it is written on prayer flags and prayer wheels.

Due to the increased interactions between Chinese Buddhists and Tibetans and Mongolians during the 11th century, the mantra also entered Chinese Buddhism. The mantra has also been adapted into Chinese Taoism.
