For each practice, there's a kind of 'minimum workable number' of mantras ! The 'minimum number of mantras' for OM MANI PAD ME HUNG is what we call 'dru bum', which means we recite each syllable one hundred thousand times, multiply this by the number of syllables in the mantra, which makes 600,000 mantras in total. If one recites 600,000 mantras, one has completed the minimum mantra recitation and one is then supposed to be able to use this practice to help others as well. There is of course no guarantee that one has thus reached any level of realisation but it's a traditional way of assessing the average attainment of practitioners.
