Asato Ma Meditation

Happy Winter Solstice!

Asato Ma Free Meditation is a present for you! This is a time of gift-giving and light sharing, so I wanted to share this sacred and beloved mantra with you.  It says: “lead me from darkness to light.” Part 1 of this podcast explains the mantra and give a little bit of practice chanting it with me on the harmonium. Part 2 is several minutes of just chanting the mantra so you can meditate.  Enjoy! Namaste.

असतो मा सद्गमय
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय
मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय
शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः
Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya |
Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya |
Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya |
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||

– from the Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upanishad
