Peaceful Mantra

Whether you’re an active Yogi, or just a friend needing a peaceful Mantra to get you through the 405 during Rush hour, I want to share with you one of my favorite Mantras.

This is one of the Sanskrit chants we use to conclude Yoga sessions, adds a euphoric finishing touch! It’s also one of Amma‘s (the hugging saint from Kerala, India) favorite invocations sung daily by her devotees. 


Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu
Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu
Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu
Omm shanti shanti Shantii.

This Mantra translates to:  “May all beings everywhere be happy and free from suffering,” an expression of the universal spirit that we find therein.

In slightly more depth, Sharron Gannon, a Yogi Philosopher, defines it as:

 May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.

This mantra does not appear in any of the existent written Vedas, but has passed down through generation by way of oral tradition. So simple yet such a seemingly difficult task for this World to grasp. I dedicate this message to ladybugs and kings and children and villagers around the world who we may not meet physically. But spiritually & mentally, our positive thoughts & actions will breed a wave of blissful Karmic reactions. Namaste.
