Saal Mubarak!!!!!! A very Happy Super Cool Joyous, Peaceful 2065 to all!
On this auspicious day, there is one prayer that keeps resonating within me : The Shanti Mantras. And with all my heart, I am praying…
It is Diwali : The Festival of Lights.
Om asato maa satgamaya
Lead us from the unreal to the real…
Tamaso maa jyotirgamaya
From darkness to light…
Mrityor maa amritam gamaya
From death to immortality…
The universal Shanti mantra:
Om sarveshaam swastir bhavatu
Sarveshaam shantir bhavatu
Sarveshaam poornam bhavatu
Sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu
Sarve bhavantu sukhinah
Sarve santu niraamayaah
Sarve bhadraani pashyantu
Maakaschit duhkha bhaag bhavet
Auspiciousness (swasti) be unto all; peace (shanti) be unto all;
fullness (poornam) be unto all; prosperity (mangalam) be unto all.
May all be happy! (sukhinah)
May all be free from disabilities! (niraamayaah)
May all look (pashyantu)to the good of others!
May none suffer from sorrow! (duhkha)
Om Shantih Shantih Shantih!
