Photographer's Note

At the road Slavyansk-na-KubanyKrasnodar, near the stanitsa of Mar’yanskaya, as it is believed, there was manifestation of the Blessed Virgin in XI century. Now at this place there are a chapel and a lake with lotuses, small part of which is seen in this picture.

The title of the picture is a literal translation of the six-syllabled Sanskrit mantra ”Om Ma-Ni Pad-Me Hum”.

Today, on December 31st 2012 in Julian calendar, I would like to use the sacred meanings of each syllable of this mantra for wishing everyone to have in new year 2013 even more of Om (Generosity), Ma (Ethics), Ni (Patience), Pad (Diligence), Me (Renunciation) and Hum (Wisdom)!
