In our Nepali and Hindi Christocentric Satsangs, the following series of mantras is used near the beginning of our worship times. The series combines two classic Sanskrit mantras well-known by Hindus throughout the world with additional recitations that point to the Triune Godhead (TriEak Parmeshwar) as the fulfillment of these ancient prayers.
As presented in this video, the mantras are best chanted corporately, in unison. I have provided below written forms of these mantras in Sanskrit followed by Nepali and English translations (Devanagari & Romanized).
bhur bhuva svaha
Tat Savitur varenyam
bhargo Devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yo naha prachodayat
Sri Param Pita Parmeshwara vidhyame
Param Putra dhimahi
tanno Param Atma prachodayaat
asato ma satgamaya
tamaso ma jytotirgamaya
mrithyor ma amritamgamaya
shalom Yeshum sharanam
Romanized Nepali Translation:
Hey pratbi, akash, ra swargko Sristikarta
Topaile jyoti sanga lagaunu bayo
Hami topaiko jyotimathi dhyan gardaychoo
Topai hamra pratibhaharu doryaunohos
Sri Param Pita Parmeshwar abishekta hunuhuncha
Hami Param Putramathi dhyan gardaychoo
Param Atma hamra pratibhaharulai doryaunuhos
Mrithyobaata amritama chootownahos
Shanti, Ma Yeshuko sharanmunni owndaychoo
Creator of Earth, Space, and Heaven,
You who are clothed with light,
May we meditate on your purifying light,
May you guide our intellects.
God the Father is Enthroned,
May we meditate on God the Son,
May God the Holy Spirit guide our intellects.
Lead me from falsehood to Truth
Lead me from darkness to Light
Lead me from death to Eternal Life
Peace, I come under the shelter of Jesus
These chants have been taken from the booklet “Christocentric Satsang”,compiled by Anil Yesudas. “Christocentric Satsang” contains chants in Sanskrit, with translations in Hindi and English. These booklets are available through the website adhyathmavatika.org.
For the sake of our Nepali and Bhutanese friends, in this blog, I have added translations in Nepali.
