sanskrit language, vyahtri mantra in devanangri and english

I offer this oblation to Agni, ruler of the earthly region. (bhuh) I offer this oblation to Vayu, governing the atmosphere. (bhuvah) I offer this oblation to Surya, light of the heavenly region. (svha) I offer this oblation to Prajapati, Cosmic Conciousness, Lord of the terrestrial, atmospheric and celestial planes. This offering is not for my benefit alone, but for the welfare of all. SVAHA – the sacred sound uttered as the oblation is offered to the fire, representing the union between the individual and the universal consciousness.

Maha Mrtyunjaya Mantra in Sanskrit

Maha-Mrtyunjaya Mantra – The Great Death – Conquering Mantra

We meditate on Supreme Consciousness in the form of Shiva, with the third eye of inner vision, who is the object of devotion and the source of all growth and nourishment. May we be released peacefully from bondage and suffering, as the ripe fruit is released from the vine. May we be free from the idea of death, but never from immortality!

Guru Mantra in Sanskrit

Guru Mantra

Salutations to that inner Guru, the inner guiding light, which is never-ending bliss, the giver of supreme happiness, one-without-a-second, the pulsation of Consciousness, beyond dualism, beyond subject and object; which is like blue sky and is indicated by such statements as “Thou art That” and “I and my Father are one,” and which is the final aim of life; one, eternal, pure, without pollution, all the time with you, the witness of all wisdom, beyond all states of being and beyond the three gunas – sattva, rajas, tamas, electronic, protonic and neutronic forces. I bow to that inner Guru.
