Ohm Mane Padme Hum is a Buddhist mantra that can be interpreted in a number of ways, and one specifically is “Hail The Jewel is in the Lotus”. The jewel represents the phallus, or the “lightning bolt” that is the vehicle for the male sexual energy. The lotus symbolizes the cosmic yoni from which all life was created, and it carries a very strong female connotation.
The male jewel buried in the female lotus is a powerful symbol in Tantric Buddhism that represents the union of contrast; fire & water, darkness & light ect.
It’s an allusion to the interdependence and oneness of all things, and such simultaneity is often found through sexual intercourse and orgasm.
Hence this sexually charged poem.
