Hello,

Is the ending of some of the mantras which says «OM» and «HO», pronounciations of the syllable «HUNG», so that it is possible to understand them as the «HUNG» syllable?

Best wishes

    Dear Ken,

    Thank you for your question. The syllables Om and Ho are not the same pronunciations as the syllable Hung. They are meant to be recited as they are written. There are many different types of mantras and not all of them end in Hung. The syllables in each mantra will have its own individual meaning, depending on which deity the mantra is associated with. Usually the syllable Hung can also be spelt HUM (is being transliterated directly from the Sanskrit rather than the Tibetan) but they are in fact the same syllable. I hope this helps.
