Om mani padme hum is an ancient Sanskrit mantra, chanted by many Buddhists, that is related to the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara, and with therefore the Dalai Lama, who is considered to be an incarnation of Avalokiteshvara. It is a reference to the Lotus Sutra, meant to be called upon for almost any type of support, such as wisdom, health, material things, and so on.
