You probably mean: Om Mani Padme Hum, which is pronounced many different ways throughought the world. Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in this mantra: Om Mani Padme Hum can not really be translated into a simple phrase or sentence.

This is hard to determine from your spelling there, but it’s likely Ohm mani padme hum… and it has very deep meaning and a rich past, but the most generalized meaning (superficial too) is “Hail to the Jewel on the Lotus”… more can be learned by reading the book, “The Origins of Om Manipadme Hum” by Alexander Studholme available at Snowlionpub.com

Many Buddhist chants are intentionally garbled so that the tantric aspects aren’t misused or misinterpreted by the those not initiated into that tantric practice (and therefore preventing suffering), but this mantra has sutric level uses as well as tantric.

Sometimes translated as ‘the jewel is in the lotus’ it means much more than that.

Actually the common reading is “Om mani padme hum.”

Hope that helps a bit.
