Mantras and Prayers are used to induce different states of consciousness.

 

The worldly everyday consciousness is that of people screaming at us, media trying to capture our attention, friends and family telling us what direction to move in, cell phone notifications and ring tones. and our own stories of what we think reality is or ought to be. It is noisy, scrambled and highly judgmental and subliminal. 

What if we could move inward and upward to a state of consciousness that is of balance, that has no judgement, that is of peace and contentment, that unites us to loving awareness? A student said to me today. "I just want to keep my zen!" Well, you can!

Mantras and prayers do just this. They move us upward into a more loving vibrational consciousness. This movement upward can last as long as the mantra or the meditation but the more we practice 1. The easier it is to get there, 2. The longer we can sustain this balance until some day it is not the practice anymore, it is a way of contented living. The way of Santosha.

The Peace Prayer

Prayer of Saint Francis

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon.

Where there is doubt, faith.

Where there is despair, hope.

Where there is darkness, light.

There there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,

Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

To be understood, and to understand; To be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive. 

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Isha Upanishad Mantra

Om Purnam Adaha Purnam Idam

Purnat Purnam Udacyate

Purnasya Purnam Adaya

Purnam Eva-vasi-syate

That (absolute unmanifested Reality) is whole, perfect and complete.

This (manifested universe) is whole, perfect and complete. 

Out of That Perfection emanates This Perfection.

In the ocean of Perfection surge the waves of Perfection;

Yet That Perfection is never lost.
