om namah sivaya gurave saccidananda-murtaye
namastasmai namastamai namastasmai
Om, reverence to Shiva, who is the Guru, the
embodiment of truth, pure consciousness, and
bliss. Reverence to him, reverence to him,
reverence to him, again and again, reverence.
(This chant is precious to those in the Kripalu lineage, as it is the one Swami Kripalvanandaji (Bapuji) chanted spontaneously at a pivotal moment of surrender in his life. Helping me stay present to the incredible wonder and blessing this life is, the mantra brings me naturally into a state of gratitude. It is particularly beneficial during life transitions, encouraging an acceptance of whatever is coming. )
