Baby Ryan Loves Om Mani Padme Hung

Little Ryan (9 months old) gets tickled pink when he hears the chant "OM MANI PADME HUNG" and everyone naturally gets just as tickled when they hear him laugh so heartily. He started taking to this chant when he was as young as 4-5 months old but his laughter was not as hearty as now. He would grin from ear to ear then.

What is there in the chant that makes him tick? Is it the way it was chanted to him with a very strong "OM"? Is it the melodious tune? Or could it simply be the loving, compassionate vibrations of the chant? I don't know but who cares!!!! As long as he loves it!
