The six-character mantra is also known as the six-character mantra and the six-character Dharani, and it is also written in Chinese as: Om Mani Padme Hum or Om Mani Padme Hum. It comes from the "Buddha's Mahayana Adornment Sutra", which is the subtle heart of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, and is also considered to be the mantra of the four-armed Avalokitesvara. The two characters "Om" and "Hum" are the beginning and end of the spell respectively, and the middle ones refer to the Mani orb and the red lotus, respectively, to pray for peace and health, or to exorcise evil spirits.
