The Mantra of compassion
OM MANI PADME HUM is pronounced by the tibetans: Om Mani Peme
Hung, It embodies the compassion and blessing of all the
buddhas and bodhisattvas, and invokes especially the blessing
of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion. Avalokiteshvara,
is a manifestation of the Buddha in the Sambhogakaya, and his
mantra is considered the essence of the Buddha's compassion
for all beings. Just as Padmasambhava is the most important
master for the Tibetan people, Avalokiteshvara is their most
important Buddha, and the karmic deity of Tibet. There is a
famous saying that the Buddha of Compassion became so embedded
in the Tibetan consciousness that any child who could say the
word "mother" could also recite the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum.

Drop Forging is a method of deforming metal with a drop hammer,
on a machine called a Dropforge. The Dropforge is simply a
set of vertical rails with a big, sliding weight (hammer),
which can be lifted to the top and is then dropped onto the
object to be forged. The drop forge may be used to deform
solid bar, squash solid metal into form dies, and to form
sheet metal into dies.
a Satin Finish is a surface finish, achieved by using fine
emery paper/cloth to create parallel lines in the
surface of the object. When very coarse emery is
used, it is called a "linished finish", for which
Industry uses a machine called a "linisher", which
is basically a belt sander.
