Yoga inspiration - things we love

We'll use this space to share things that inspire us and would love to hear from you if you'd like us to explore a particular aspect of the wonderful world of Yoga. 

Mantra: Om Hraum Mitraya

Om Hraum Mitraya is a Sanskrit mantra used to call in a sense of unity, communion, friendship and understanding.  It also invokes Saraswati, the goddess of creation.

 

Saraswati represents the feminine principle and flow / life force within us all, running through the central axis of the body from root to crown, also known as Shushumna nadi.  Saraswati is linked to Shakti, divine energy becoming manifest, bringing life not only literally but also figuratively to ideas and creations.

 

Saraswati is the name of the vast river in northwest India on which the ancient Aryas (from whom Yoga derived) cultivated their inner divine light through deep meditation and fire rituals.

 

According to the Yogic scriptures, all creation arises from, abides in and returns to ananda (eternal bliss). The image of Goddess Saraswati reminds us that the pursuit of ananda is the true purpose of our embodied existence, and that this can be facilitated by free flowing energy upwards through the body.

 

Om Hraum Mitraya Namaha lyrics in Sanskrit:

Translation and meaning in English:

“May the light of friendship shine through me, drawing noble companionship.

 

Om and Salutations to the feminine Saraswati principle.”

 

This soothing mantra is recited in order to create a field of protection, surrounding the practitioner with positive energy. Chant it whenever you feel anxious in order to bring about a sense of ease and inner peace.
