Chanting has many purposes, it is a powerful tool in Yoga

Yoga Bhakti guides the Yogi further along their journey within.
Group prayer strengthens the common goal of the community, deepening the connection with everyone chanting together.
Bhakti is important, chanting is the heart’s way to show the Mind our Spirits Dharma.
Om Namah Shivaya
Om Namah Shivaya Gurave
Sat Chit Ananda Murtaye
Nish Prepanchaya Shantaya
Repeat 3x before practice
Om Namah Shivaya Gurave – I salute/honor and devote myself to my highest Dharma,
Sat Chit Ananda Murtaye – The highest state of consciousness and existence
Nish Prepanchaya Shantaya – The highest self is bliss, and eternally peaceful
Niralambaya Tejase – I pray I dwell in the divinity of (the above)
The grammar in sanskrit is different.
Raised speaking aramaic as my first language, it is easier for me to understand the grammar and translate this correctly.
Put directly into english it would read backwards, from the end to the beginning. Either way it still has the same meaning.
I pray (to myself or the lord above) that I dwell in the divinity of my highest self, with eternal peace, and the understanding to devote myself to my highest purpose.

#phit4life #motivationmonday I used to be as wide as a door way. I made a decision and I stuck by my guns through thick and thin. Opposition was great and still is. It doesn’t matter how many haters tell me that I won’t surmount to anything. After I get my check point then it’s off to the next plateau. #bodybuilding #mindset #transformforlife #mma #martialarts
