Om

The first, Om is composed of three letters. A, U, and M. These symbolize the practitioner’s impure body, speech, and mind; they also symbolize the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.

Can impure body, speech, and mind be transformed into pure body, speech, and mind, or are they entirely separate?

All Buddhas are cases of beings who were like ourselves and then in dependence on the path became enlightened; Buddhism does not assert that there is anyone who from the beginning is free from faults and possesses all good qualities. The development of pure body, speech, and mind comes from gradually leaving the impure states and their being transformed into the pure.

How is this done?

The path is indicated by the next four syllables.

Mani

Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method—the altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love.

Just as a jewel is capable of removing poverty, so the altruistic mind of enlightenment is capable of removing the poverty, or difficulties, of cyclic existence and of solitary peace.

Similarly, just as a jewel fulfills the wishes of sentient beings, so the altruistic intention to become enlightened fulfills the wishes of sentient beings.

Padme

The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom, just as a lotus grows forth from mud but is not sullied by the faults of mud, so wisdom is capable of putting you in a situation of non-contradiction whereas there would be contradiction if you did not have wisdom.

There is wisdom realizing impermanence, wisdom realizing that persons are empty of being self-sufficient or substantially existent, wisdom that realizes the emptiness of duality—that is to say, of difference of entity between subject an object—and wisdom that realizes the emptiness of inherent existence.

Though there are many different types of wisdom, the main of all these is the wisdom realizing emptiness.

Hum

Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility. According to the sutra system, this indivisibility of method and wisdom refers to wisdom affected by method and method affected by wisdom.

In the mantra or tantric, vehicle, it refers to one consciousness in which there is the full form of both wisdom and method as one undifferentiable entity.

In terms of the seed syllables of the five Conqueror Buddhas, hum is the seed syllable of Akshobhya—the immovable, the unfluctuating, that which cannot be disturbed by anything.

For our plastic molds, we use HDPE 300 and for our silicone molds, we use platinum cured, food-safe silicone.

When casting you should use the pre-glazing technique, in order to prevent any stones or metal shavings being in direct contact with the side of the mold, in order to do that when you pour the resin into the mold you do it by spreading a thin layer of resin on the inside part of the mold, just cover the sides with resin, it will form that thin layer that will prevent any shavings or stones showing up on the final castings. You should do that every time you are pouring resin into the mold. When you are closing the mold the first thing you need to do is to place tape along the open side of the mold, then to tighten the mold you can place one or a few more strings of tape across the edge horizontally until you close the gap complacently.

All silicone molds are FDA food safe approved, HDPE molds also can be used for casting food but they can not be heated when containing food

These molds can be used for resin, Candle making, Jewelry making, Molding & Casting, Sculpture, Soapmaking & bath.

Yes, but the lifespan of the molds won’t be so long. We use platinum cured silicone, not cheap tin cured one, the number of castings greatly depends on the chemistry of the resin used, the slower the curing the better as the heat released from the resin is less. There can be issues from the temperature that the resin build wile curing, we do recommend using layers when casting in the molds as you limit the heat this way.
