Peace Mantra - Asato Ma Sadgamaya

ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।
तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ॥
मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः  ॥
Om Asato Ma Sadgamaya ।
Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya ॥
Mrtyorma Amrtam Gamaya।
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti ॥
Lead me from the unreal to the real.
Lead me from darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
Om Peace Peace Peace.


Simplified Meaning

In this simple yet powerful prayer, the seeker is not longing any worldly things such as food, wealth or even health. Rather, seeker acknowledges his or her limited ability to see the limitless truth. Truth, that has been always been true, not in a particular frame of time.

Through this prayer, the seeker is acknowledging the fact that nothing is permanent in this world. Everything is constantly changing - from planetary movement to seasons of the world, from emotions to intellect - we constantly go back and forth from happiness to sorrow. Hence, seeker prays to the Guru to show the ultimate truth through raised consciousness. Just as the  only remedy for darkness is eternal light, the only remedy for ignorance is true knowledge.

It is also a reminder that seeker was never born, nor can ever die, as seeker is neither the body nor the mind or the intellect, rather seeker is urging Guru to grant the eternal and blissful consciousness.

May peace be with you!
