Om Mani Padme Hum is a mantra that contains all of the teachings of the Buddha. It can be listened to, said aloud or said in your mind. This is an image of the mantra that can be coloured.
Below is a chart from Wikipedia that describes the individual sounds of the mantra and the details associated with each. I like to play the mantra and colour the petals of the lotus.

What is the symbol in the middle? It looks like not part of the mantra.
