We’ve discussed the how and why of meditation and I introduced you to one very significant Mantra with details of its meaning and inner workings.. OM MA NI PAD ME HUM. Here are a couple of additional mantras. It is said that SOUND awakens and moves the universe at a spiritual or electromagnetic level. Scientists have proven via electroencephalograms that repeated chanting alters our brains wavelengths.
About twenty years ago I discovered a website called Wildman Buddhist Meditation and I printed a couple of their pages. The following are Sanskrit Mantras and their meaning. Enjoy. Be free.
SABBE SATAA SUKHI HONTU:
Sabee = all
Sataa = beings
Sukhi = happy, well
Hontu = may they be
Repeat chant 108 times.
OM SHAANTI SHAANTI SHAANTI:
Om = primeval sound
Shaanti = peace
OM MUNI MUNI MAHAAMUNI SHAAKYA MUNI SWAAHAA :
Om, wise one, wise one, greatly wise one, wise one of the Shakyans, Hail!
( sage of Shakyan clan aka Siddhartha Gautama). Keep in mind that we meditate using the know tools seeking peace and enlightenment. We are not endorsing any religious endeavors. Buddhist is a philosophy, a way to live. The longer Mantras feel like a mouthful when you first try them but my experience is that the sounds tend to blend and swim from us to the universe. Enjoy!
