I am happy to announce that Arvind Pare from Mysore confirmed for a philosophy talk via Zoom about two interesting subjects:
The meaning of OM and the Mangala Mantra (Ashtanga finishing mantra)
Take the chance to listen to an experienced Vedanta teacher and learn more about Yoga. More informations about Arvind Pare you will find below.
OM:“It’s meaning and significance“
Om is the most important sound in the Veda, it is considered to be the sound with which the universe began. It is also a word with a meaning. It is glorified in many Upanishads and BhagavadGita, In Yoga Sutra, Patanjali confirms it to be the name of Ishwara (the Lord) and says that chanting of Om alongwith a contemplation on its meaning will surely make one a Buddha.
Svasti Prajabhyah or the Mangala Mantra is a prayer for everyone’s well-being. It is an integral part of every vedic ritual. It is also always chanted in temples when a priest is performing a Puja (worship) to the lord. In Ashtanga Yoga tradition every yoga class ends with this mantra.Like it is with all prayers, this prayer too is packed with meaning. In this talk, we will take an in-depth look at this most well-known prayer
