The perfect chant for when you are feeling overwhelmed by the news or helpless about the state of the world or in your life.
If you are feeling at a loss and want to put some love and positivity out into the world then this is the perfect chant.
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
“May all beings be happy and free and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to the happiness and freedom for all.”
If you are thinking, “What the heck can a chant do for me or the world?” I want you to try it first and then notice how it shifts you in positive ways.
We are all vibrating. We are all energy.
It’s okay to feel sad or upset or lost. Being aware that you are feeling these types of feelings and what is causing them is very positive.
There are tools and techniques out there for you to create positive change. This is one of them. I encourage you to try it.
This is a Sanskrit chant and one of the things that I really like about chanting in a different language is that there is no attachment to the words or preconceived notions surrounding them.
This leaves just the meaning of the words and the vibration that goes out into the world that is just positive and loving.
Let’s send peace and love out into the world together!
Below are two of my favorite recordings of this chant.
The first one is by Wah!. It is shorter and includes some additional lyrics beyond the chant that you can simply listen to in-between chanting lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu.
The second one is by Russil Paul and is longer. You can really get into this one and make it a meditation too.
You can find more versions here on this Spotify playlist I created.
Remember, you are more powerful than you think. Your actions and thoughts matter. Share and spread love!
