Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu: The Mantra Of Oneness

How many times have you taken someone else’s negative personality or rude behavior?  It’s so easy to get wrapped up in our own worlds, our own issues and forget that other people are fighting their own battles. This week, commit to serving the overall happiness and freedom in your community to committing to the mantra.  This week when other people get you down, instead of wishing negativity onto them, recite this mantra. By being a being of light, you are not only living in positivity, you are improving your karma and vibe. This is considered to be the mantra of Oneness.

“Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu” roughly translates to:

“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.”

Let’s dissect the mantra:

Lokah: People or universe                                                                       Samastah: All beings living in the same location                   Sukhino: Free from suffering, centered in happiness                          Bhav: The state of unified existence or the divine mood                 Antu: May it be so, it must be so

In the expansiveness of this mantra – we all become one.  As we chant and our hearts expand, we contain and collapse into the heart of the Universe.  One rhythm that is breathtaking in its simplicity.

This mantra also calls us to look mindfully at our thoughts, words and actions.  Are we truly contributing to the happiness of all beings?  What does that look like in our lives and how can we expand it with love?

Thank you for watching,

Love and Light,
