Om namah shivaya was the first Mantra I got to know. In my first yoga class 5 years ago my teacher said to me that in her classes we sing a song called Om namah shivaya. This was really new to me but I liked it instantly. The more and more I sang this mantra I knew it without reading it from a note. And my mind connected this mantra and relaxation together.
So five years later when I need relaxation or I am extremely nervous I am singing Om namah shivaya in my mind. It helps instantly 😌
The mantra purifies the heart of all sins and is a greet among Yogis and a homage on all aspects of Shiva.
Om Namah Shivaya Gurave
Ich verneige mich vor dem Göttlichen in mir, das mein wahrer Lehrer ist.
Diese innere Essenz ist Wahrheit, Bewusstsein und Glückseligkeit,
Immer da und erfüllt von Frieden,
Vollkommen frei und einem überirdischen Glanz erstrahlend
I bow to the Divine within me, which is my true teacher. This inner essence is truth, consciousness and bliss, Always there and filled with peace, Completely free and shining with a supernatural brilliance
