Mani Stones, Nako
Alike any other any destination with Buddhist influence, you will find many Mani Stones placed in the different parts of the Nako Village. This is the basic chant in Buddhism, seeking forgiveness form the nature and living beings. It is a particular six-syllable Sanskrit mantra or hymn that’s very sacred among Buddhist. It’s recited as om mani padme hum, which loosely translates to "Behold! The jewel in the lotus", an invocation to the four-armed bodhisattva (an enlightened being ) Avalokiteshvara, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas.
