Sat Chit Ananda Parabrahma
Sri Bhagavathi Sametha
Sri Bhagavathe Namaha
Hari Om Tat Sat Hari Om Tat Sat
The Moola mantra has been in my head the last few days, so it seems like the mantra meant to be in my next post. To me, without knowing yet the specifics of this chant, it feels like a lullaby to the soul. As if the Divine Mother is holding and rocking me gently, singing this song to me.
The literal meaning of this mantra is that it evokes the living God, asking protection and freedom from all sorrow and suffering. It is a prayer that adores the great creator and liberator, who out of love and compassion manifests, to protect us, in an earthly form. It has the power to transport ones mind to the state of causeless love and limitless joy. The calmness that the mantra can give is to be experienced, not just spoken about.
It is said that whenever you chant the Moola mantra, even without knowing the meaning of it, that itself carries power. But when you know the meaning and chant with that feeling in your heart then the energy will be even more powerful.
This mantra is like calling a name. Just like when you call a person she comes and you feel her presence, when you chant this mantra, the supreme energy manifests everywhere around you. As the Universe is Omnipresent, the supreme energy can manifest any where and any time.
The second part of the chant ‘Hari Om Tat Sat’ I add on because that’s how I’ve learned this chant. ‘Hari Om Tat Sat’ means ‘That is Truth’. That which I see with my eyes and that which is beyond my eyes are both the same, not different. The creator and the creation are not two. The creator has not created creation, but has manifested or transformed himself into creation.
And so I guess it makes sense that I would feel myself held and surrounded by love when I listen to or chant the Moola mantra. Because I am. And so are you. Take a listen to my version of it, here:
