The Use of Mantras in Meditation

Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.

I've rekindled my love for this mantra recently. In my meditation practice I've been using it as a reminder for my purpose to serve with an open heart. There are some days in which it doesn't feel as though I am making an impact and then there are days when I received the most beautiful email of gratitude from one of my yoga students.

Try listening to this mantra as you sit in meditation, track #2 on this album. And believe that if your intention is good and kind and coming from your heart…. that energy radiates out to affect all beings everywhere.
