Namo Omatyaraddhassa Ratanattayassa sadhukam
Homage to the Triple Gem beginning auspiciously with AUM
‘Om’ is composed of the sounds a, u and m, which in certain late-Pali verse compositions serve as mnemonics for Saṅgha, Buddha and Dhamma respectively.
Khandhānaṃ rāsaṭṭhaṃ, āyatanānaṃ āyatanaṭṭhaṃ,
Dhātūnaṃ suññaṭṭhaṃ, indriyānaṃ adhipatiyaṭṭhaṃ,
Saccānaṃ tathaṭṭhaṃ aviditaṃ karotītipi ‘avijjā’.
It prevents knowing the meaning of heap in the aggregates, the meaning of actuating in the sense-bases, the meaning of voidness in the elements, the meaning of predominance in the faculties, and the meaning of suchness in the truths, thus it is called ‘ignorance’.
(Visuddhimagga XVII. 43)
