Oṃ namaḥ śivāya

Oṃ namaḥ śivāya is possibly one of the most well-known mantras used for Japa (silent repetition of mantra) and worship. In this short course, we will trace back to the source of this mantra in the Vedas, therefore learning its context and meaning.

Puruṣa Sūktam

The Puruṣa is consciousness, caitanya, the truth of the unmanifest. This Puruṣa is presented in a hymn of praise in this popular Ṛg Veda mantra, which is a description of the Puruṣa. We repeat the glory of Īśvara everyday by chanting this sūktam. In doing so, we also recognise that the Puruṣa is the self, ātman. There is nothing higher than the puruṣa, I am not separate from the puruṣa; I am not a separate entity. The entire knowledge of the upaniṣads is contained in the Puruṣa sūktam. In this course of 10 lessons, we will meticulously learn the recitation of this Sūktam with a high level meaning. As aspiring yogīs working towards understanding our true nature, this hymn will become a powerful prayer in our yogic journey.

Hymn of divine enjoyment – Bhāgya Sūktam

From the seventh Maṇḍala of the Ṛg Veda dedicated entirely to the mantras of Ṛṣi Vaṣiṣṭha, Bhāgya Sūktam is a morning mantra also known as prātaḥ sūktam or morning hymn. Let us call Bhaga, who is strong and victorious, powered by all that is true, right and good to come and displace ignorance and all falsehood in us. Bhaga has a wealth of Truth, come and manifest for us the knowledge and energy for this Truth. May the dawn bring to us Bhaga. This Ṛg veda mantra features the famous words Bhagavān and Bhagavantaḥ, used to signify the supreme person in later times, especially in the Bhakti literature.
