Today, I am sharing the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, a beautiful mantra I chant at the end of my Yoga classes. It is a tradition in our Sivananda Yoga practice.
> Om – We Offer worship to the fragrant, three-eyed Lord Siva who enhances prosperity. May he liberate us from the bondage of death, like the watermelon (which effortlessly separates from the vine); let Him not turn us away from immortality.
> Om – May auspiciousness be unto all. May peace be unto all. May fullness be unto all. May prosperity be unto all. – May all be happy. May all be free from diseases. May all look to the good of others. May none suffer from sorrow. – Lead me from the unreal to the real. From darkness to light, from mortality to immortality.
> Om – That is whole. This is whole. From the whole, the whole becomes manifest. From the whole, when the whole is negated, what remains is again the whole.
> Om Peace, Peace, Peace
The mantras are in Sanskrit, and we don’t translate them to conserve their healing and protecting effect. The mantras are a fantastic way to conclude the class and to protect all students, their families, and everyone in the world.
