Simple Word-by-word Meaning
Our Daily Practice
This mantra is usually chanted at the end of a meditation session, kīrtan, or other type of personal or group practice. Typically, it’s repeated three times, and followed by Auṁ Śāntiḥ Śāntiḥ Śāntiḥ
You can also do it as a separate practice, for as long as you like. (One full mālā of 108X is lovely!)

Interestingly, she’s in the forest where a historical prayer ceremony took place for the benefit of all beings, about 8,000 years ago! (For Rāmāyaṇa nerds: It was Vaśiṣta’s yajña, when Rāma and Lakṣmāna revealed their true powers.)
More videos on pronunciation will be added soon. 🙂 Happy chanting!
