Sanskrit Meditation Mantras – Om Namah Shivaya

Today’s mantra is a tool for honouring and loving yourself.

Whilst we need to make room for sending love to others, it all begins with ourselves.  Love, respect and confidence begin from within and allow us to help and grow with those around us.

Om Namah Shivaya focuses on this and in it’s traditional translation translates as

I bow to Shiva, the supreme deity of transformation who represents the truest, highest self.

In modern times it has been used by gurus such as the guru to EAT PRAY LOVE author Elizabeth Gilbert.  It has been used in modern times as

“I honour the divinity within myself.”

I would like to thank Mind Body Green for the information.
