A unique feature of the Buddhadharma is the seemingly paradoxical interdependence of wisdom and method. As method is more tangible, it is easy to forget about wisdom. Meditation, for example, has become a popular method for stress relief. But making our lives more comfortable is absolutely not the purpose of Buddhism. We are entangled in habitual patterns and these habits, as they become solid, become an organized and rigid system. Using wisdom we can try to destabilise our habits and for this we need method. There are infinite methods to choose from, one of which is chanting OM MANI PADME HUM, the mantra of compassion associated with Avalokiteśvara. On a profound level, chanting this mantra creates a vibration in our mind, prana and chakras, which will help to deconstruct our habitual patterns and enable us to see the truth.
