Sanskrit? on a ring

Mat's ring
Any Sanskrit or Devnagari experts out there?

This is a friend’s ring.  I have pretty much zero knowledge of Indian languages, so I can’t make much of it.  Its chunky design doesn’t help either.  Here’s my attempt at a transcription:

ऊामडाहृात्गटा

uāmaḍāhṛātgāṭā

There are a couple of things in there that I don’t feel confident about.


  1. What’s up with the long block starting with what looks like ा (ात्ग)?  I’ve moved the ā ा back to the previous letter, but maybe it should be त्गि (tgi)?

  2. The letter before it looks like it might be ha ह plus something, but if it’s हृ or हॄ does attaching an ā ा to it still make sense?

Of course, then there’s the actual meaning...

It’s mantra “Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ ” written in Lantsa script. The letters are a little bit corrupted. Also the order of parts on the photo is wrong. Should be: 1-3-2. See here how it should look like.
