Haiku Shuukan #32, "HUM"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

This week I haven't had enough time to post on time here at Haiku Shuukan. My apologies for that, but sometimes time is not at my side.
This week we will close our journey along the six (6) sounds of the greatest mantra I know "Om Mani Padme Hum". This week "hum" is the prompt and it stands for purifying aggression and hatred (hell realm) as you can read here after:

Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods); Ma purifies jealousy and need for entertainment (realm of the jealous gods); Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm); Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm); Me purifies greed and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts); Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm).

And with this wonderful video we come at the end of our quest through this wonderful mantra ... this was also the last episode of this year here at Haiku Shuukan. I have to think it over if I will prolong this weekly haiku meme. Through lack of time and of course our daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai I can't promise you to be back here at Haiku Shuukan. Maybe I will migrate it to Wordpress and let it become one with our weekly haiku meme "Tackle It Tuesday" at Wordpress. We will see ...

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until the end of this year on December 31st at noon (CET).

  1. What a beautiful video ---
    Thank you for putting so much time and work into this series. I've enjoyed it, as I never knew what the mantra actually meant!
    Migrating Shuukan into Tackle It Tuesday might be a very good idea --- will you announce the changes at CDHK if/when you make them?
    Hope all is well ---
