Mantras & Lineage


Invocations offered during this program. The explanation of the purpose of prayer, invocation and mantra is taught in the Nectar of the Gīta, Part 2 {Nectar of Love}. 

To Honor the Lineage of Teachers

Sadā Śiva Samarambhām
Śankārācharya Madhyamām
Asmāt āchārya Pāryanthām
Vande Guru Paramparā

Starting from the Great Lord Shiva, through Sankaracharya and my teacher, the guru parampara eternally flows. All wisdom is traced back through the teacher student relationships all the way to Bhagavan.   

Prayer for successful study

Sa ha nāvavatu
Sa ha nau bhunaktu
Sa ha vīryam karavāvahai
Tejas vināvadhītamastu
Mā vidviṣāvahai
Oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

May we both be protected. May we both be nourished. May we together acquire the capacity to study and understand what we study. May our study be brilliant. May we not disagree with each other. Oṃ peace, peace, peace.

Closing Mantra

Oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śānti

That is Whole, This also is Whole, From this Wholeness comes that Wholeness. Taking Wholeness from Wholeness, Wholeness Indeed Remains. Oṃ Peace, Peace, Peace

Any lessons of value in this course are due to the gifts of my teachers and their teachers. Any fault, mistake or offense is mine alone.
