3 Jewels & how life works

Om mani padme hum, Smith Tower, Seattle

I go downtown to order custom license plates for my new Smart Car. The clerk glances at my application and says "Three jewels. Isn't that something to do with Tibetan Buddhism?" Turns out her sister was an organizer for Seeds of Compassion when His Holiness the Dalai Lama was in town.

When I walk back to the my car, what do I see on the south side of Smith Tower? Our favorite mantra!
