I hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family during this holiday season. The holidays come and go so quickly, it can be difficult to fully dwell in the moment and embrace the joy and comfort of the season. Today I want to talk about a special mantra as we close out our mantra series for the month of December. The phrase Om Namah Shivaya is known as the greatest redeeming mantra and translates to “I bow to Shiva” or “I honor the divinity within myself.”
Om Namah Shivaya is a powerful healing mantra from Hinduism that is thought to repel internal imperfections and limitations. After the holidays, where you can be running around like crazy and drained emotionally, this mantra is a good one to enter into a new year. It can be used to reflect on your own personal goals and resolutions while spending time relaxing and being rejuvenated for this new season of life. I hope that knowing a bit more about this mantra will help your meditations as we wind down after a busy holiday season and begin fresh for the new year.
