It looks like:

Sra ram Oṃ pa tī gram

tu ra ba nā ma sa

Or

སྲ་རམ་ཨོཾ་པ་ཏཱི་གྲམ
ཏུ་ར་བ་ནཱ་མ་ས

By the way, I really appreciate your help. If you can give me an idea of what the lineage and translation is, I am happy to send you $100 via paypal for your help and time.

Thanks

I wouldn't be surprised if the first 3 characters were "sri rama", and that might be "ravana" later on.
