I have not been able to find any history or descriptions in regards to this mantra other than it is "wish fulfilling", and it is put over doorways.
Does anyone have any information on this?

I think it is Tibetan and it usually comes with the karma cleansing mantra. I learn that one head pass underneath it that it will take affect, that is why is on top of the door way.

It's one of Lama Zopa's "Powerful Mantras for the Time of Death", esp. for preventing/liberating from lower rebirths and of general benefit to those on their death bed. You might want to search Lama Zopa's teachings at the FPMT (Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition) Web site:

http://www.fpmt.org/

There's a also tradition (I could try to get a precise reference if desired) which holds that saying it 7 times per day will prevent you from being reborn in the lower realms.

It's also I believe a general purification mantra, and as the prev. poster mentioned, is often placed over entrances, lintels, etc.

Hi all -- I found more info on this mantra.

It is placed over doorways to "ward off malignant forces." Also "whoever sees, hears, recollects or comes in contact with this ten-syllable king of mystic recitations will be purified of unbounded heinous actions and will be prevented from taking rebirth in bad destinies." Heart of the Earth Sutra of Ten Cycles as quoted in Mahayana Purification, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, p. 103.

Isn't it one of the core mantras of Bodhisattva Ushnisha Vijaya?

Not sure who the deity is--even Lama Zopa admitted in a teaching that he had not seen an picture of the deity, whom he didn't name, unfortunately. He did say:

"Another of the mantras is the Wish-granting Wheel mantra. I have read of the unbelievable benefits of reciting the mantra, but I have yet to see a picture of this deity. The mantra is very short: OM PEMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHET. If you recite this mantra seven times every day, you will be born in a pure land when you die. And if you recite it and bless incense, whether stick or powder, by blowing on it, people are healed by smelling the burning incense. Here the healing comes through purifying the other sentient beings’ negative karma, through purifying their mind, which is the most important healing. Purifying the mind then helps to heal any sickness. If you recite this mantra and then blow on your clothes, wearing the clothes brings healing; wearing the clothes brings purification. And if the cloth is made of silk, wool, or the skin of an animal, reciting this mantra also helps that animal, no matter where it has been reborn, by purifying that animal’s negative karma."
