Everlasting Omnipresent Peace



Mantra Yoga  17

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Bha.  Thank You Gye Nyame.

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayathri.


We take refuge in You to be free from Maya.

 The beginning of taking refuge/shelter in You 

and reuniting with You, is to always think of You.

  We do this by calling out, chanting softly, loudly,

 or silently,  Your Holy Name, or Names. 


Calling out Your Name/Names, we seek refuge in

 You. Steadily and increasingly, we are able to 

remember You more.  Thank You for helping us 

remember You.  We are increasingly able to do 

this while awake, during sleep, dream states, and

 deep sleep states of  existence. 


Thank You, All Mighty One, for allowing us the

sacred  privilege of chanting Your Holy Names.  As

 we do this, our consciousness returns to its pure 

quiet state.  Slowly, we tap into Your unlimited

 reservoir of energy, intelligence and creativity. 


Thank You, for allowing us the intelligence to

 chant Your Holy Names.  These are the nonviolent 

sacrifices we offer to You with all the devotion and 

love we have at our command, at this time.


Chanting the Holy Names are some of our ancient

 spiritual practices. They have been used since time

 immemorial to purify the consciousness, removing

 the clouds of ignorance between the lower selves and 

the Higher Selves. 


We chant Your Holy Names and think of You

 as Supreme Intelligence of all worlds, Material

 and Spiritual.  You are within and beyond Maya 

and all other degrees of illusion.  Chanting Your

 Holy names, we rise out of the suffering of Maya 

and are consciously reestablished in Your 

Infinite Fulfillment and Peace.


Thank You for allowing us the privilege of 

remembering You and Your Holy Names while 

we go about our mundane affairs.  This way

 we are constantly engaged in remembering You.


In the midst of  the
vast and variegated illusions

 of the exterior and interior worlds, may we continue

 to be blessed with the remembrance of Your Holy

 Names. The more our consciousness is clean and 

quiet by virtue of chanting Your Holy Names, the

 better we can follow Your Most Righteous Guidance

 all the time


The more we remember You by chanting 

Your Holy Names, our consciousness, awareness

and intelligence are purified and empowered to 

turn from wickedness.  This is how we break free, 

transcend Maya, and return to the Pure

 Consciousness, Awareness, and Eternal Pure 

Intelligence of You.


Supreme Love of all. Your Eternal Peace is 

always with us. Thank You for helping us to

 cultivate our consciousness from that of a beast, a 

brute, to that of a human being, and from that of a

 human being to our original Divinity.  With Your

 Divine Grace, we are accomplishing this status by

 chanting Your Holy Names. 


This civilizing process of chanting Your Holy

 Names is, to us, the real meaning and purpose

 of culture.  A civilizing process that cultivates 

and raises our consciousness from that of an

 asleep narrow thinking brute, to that of an

 independent, awake, critically thinking,

 compassionate, Divine Being.


Chanting Your Holy Names helps to raise 

our consciousness, awareness, and intelligence. 

 From the level of brute we rise to compassionate

 Human Being.  From there we are purified and rise,

    back to our original Divine Being.  This is real culture.

  It is a scientific process of chanting Your Holy Names

and cultivating our being to Divine Intelligence.


You are first and foremost in all our endeavors. 

 All that we do for the uplift of all,  we do first

 as an offering to You. Thank You for helping us 

in our efforts to remember You by chanting 

Your Holy Names. 


We think of You as the Most Wise, the Greatest 

Power.  You are the Supreme Being of our 

understanding, inside and outside of the Cosmic 



We chant Your Holy Names, knowing You

 pervade and transcend all names.  We think of 

You as incomparable, beyond sound and form

 There is no second with whom we can compare You.


Thoughts cease invading our consciousness the

 more we chant Your Holy Names.  Gradually we see 

and understand, there is nothing, except for You. 

 Chanting Your Holy Names are the first steps in

 solving the problems facing our existence in the 

various universes. 


Thank You for helping us remember to chant 

Your Holy Names.  This purifies us and exposes 

the Divine Love at the core of our being.  


Armed with this Supreme Love, attained by

 chanting Your Holy Names, we are cool, calm, and

 collected,  not afraid, frustrated, nor confused when

 the triple illusions of Maya:  Anger, lust, and greed,

 try to enter or enter our consciousness, awareness,

 or  intelligence.
