Mantras and Music

I’ve loved weaving the Mantras into our practice this session:

Om mani pad me hum  –  Mantra for compassion – Music by Susanne Sterling Healing Flow with Mantra

Hari Om – Mantra that purifies and removes obstacles. Opens the heart. Awakens prana (natural energy) in the body – Music by Om Hari Ohm  Sean Johnson & the Wild Lotus Band

Om Namah Shivaya – This Mantra honors the divine within oneself & others – destroys negativity & replaces with positive – Music by Wah & Wade Imre Morissette

Om Shanti – Peace – Music by Pattabhi Jois and Robert Musso

Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung  – mantra for healing – Music by Snatam Kaur/ Grace  & Siri Sadhana Kaur/ Sacred Nectar
Peace and Joy,
Shari
