Student-Teacher Mantra

This is a Mantra that I chanted for many years when I was working for the Kripalu School of Yoga. Here’s a recording with Devarshi at Nosara Yoga Institute when I was assisting him in Oct 2014.

SAHA NAVAVATU PRAYER Student-Teacher Mantra or Shanti Mantra

Om Saha na-va-vatu
Saha Nau Bhu-naktu
Saha viryam karav-va-vahai
Tejas-vi na-vadhi-tam astu
Ma vid-visha-vahai
Om shanti, shanti, shanti

Asato ma sada ga-maya
Tamaso ma jyotir ga-maya
Mrityor ma amritam ga-maya

Gurur Brahma Gurur Vishnur
Gurur Devo Mahesh-varah
Gurur sakshat param Brahma
Tasmai shri Gurave na-maha
Om shanti, shanti, shanti

Translation
May we be protected together
May we be nourished together
May we work together with great vigor
May our study be enlightening
May no obstacle arise between us
Om peace, peace, peace

Lead us from the unreal to the real
Lead us from the darkness to the light
Lead us from death to immortality

The Guru is Brahma (the creator)
The Guru is Vishnu (the sustainer)
The Guru is Shiva (the transformer)
The Guru is truly the Supreme Absolute
To that Guru I bow
Om peace, peace, peace
