“In cultivating a saumya personality, we need to start working consciously and conscientiously on purification of the mind and emotions.” – Swami Veda Bharati in “Emotions – The Ethics of Emotions”
Three Year Mantra Practice
Sadhakas worldwide are starting the new 3 year mantra practice. We share these 2 pictures – one from California, USA, and one from Hungary. San Diego initiates celebrated the first day of Navaratri by receiving shawls, having satsang, and becoming oriented to the practice. On the birthday of Swami Veda, Frankó Csuba Dea told about experiences at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) and gave the Budapest sangha the new community mantra.
Swami Ritavan Bharati guided the AHYMSIN Sangha into a new mantra practice for the next 3 years during the 2019 Sangha Gathering. The mantra is the Saumyā mantra combined with a Tārā mantra. The first 2 lines of the mantra are the Saumyā mantra, and the third line is the Tārā mantra.
सौम्या सौम्यतराशेष सौम्येभ्यस्त्वतिसुन्दरी ।
saumyā saumyātarāśeṣa saumyebhyas tvati sundarī ,
Phonetic Pronunciation Guideline:
"A” is pronounced as in "mama" "papa" "la" "baba" "ha"
