PRAYERS

                  

 Sacred Chants:

 

  These sacred chants are the All-Stars, the Dream Team, of Sanskrit chants.

 

  The sacred chants we sing go back 13,000 years at least. These Sanskrit chants are prayers invoking Divine help, guidance, blessings. There is a huge science to the practice of chanting. Suffice it to say, these prayers confer divine energy and help to keep a person steady in their journey.

Om Na-mo Bha-ga-va-te Va-su-de-va-ya

I bow to you, Lord Krishna.

Gu-rur Brah-ma, Gur-ur Vish-nur,
Gu-rur de-vo Ma-hesh-va-rah,
Gu-ru sak-shat Pa-ra-brah-ma,
Tas-mai Shri Gu-ra-ve-na-ma-ha!

The guru is the Creator, The guru is the sustainer.
The guru is the destroyer,
The guru is the absolute supreme
I bow before you, to the guru I bow.

Om na-mah Shi-va-ya Gu-ra-ve,

I bow to thee, Lord Shiva, in the form of the Guru.

Embodiment of existence, consciousness, and bliss.

I bow to thee, I bow to thee, I bow to thee, respectfully I bow.

May we bring a higher level of study, intellect &
illumination,


May we never quarrel with each other.
Peace to the tamas, peace to the rajas, and
peace to the sattva.
