Hi again:

Does anyone have any good experience reciting mantras? like om mani padme hum? Isn't prayers and mantras regarded as useless by The Buddha? Is mantra only used by Tantric buddhism? I read in the Tibetan buddhism sites that if you recite the quan yin mantra 300,000 times you will cleanse away alot of bad karma, how's that possible? If that is the case then buddhism is even more absurd that prayers in christianity, don't you think? please comment.
