MANTRA INITIATION

Kosi offers a simple initiation into the following core mantras as well as other ancient vedic mantras and songs to support the evolution of your consciousness. These ancient mantras are infused with a powerful vibratory silence that is essential support for burning through the suffering caused by the genetics of your mind—the source of deeply ingrained patterns of suffering that continue even after the most profound moments of awakening and deep realization.

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra
(The Healing Mantra)

oṁ tryambakaṁ yajāmahe
sugandhiṁ puṣṭi-vardhanam

urvārukam-iva bandhanān
mṛtyormukṣīya māmṛtāt

Translation: Oh Lord Shiva with your three eyes you are always watching over the three worlds of existence. You are the omniscient one who exudes the eternal fragrance of peace, compassion, contentment, and complete knowledge of the eternal Self. You are eternally nourishing all beings with your divine healing energy. May you free me from all disease, mental disturbances, and the death of spiritual ignorance so that I may discover my eternal nature. May I always cling close to you, as a cucumber clings to the vine that sustains it, and may I realize in this life that I am one with your eternal presence.

SARASWATI MANTRA
(Universal Mother Prayer)

oṁ aim srīm hrīm sarasvatī devyai namah

Translation: aim is the bijaksharas, or seed letter, of Saraswati Devi or pure divine consciousness and is Nadamayi the form of divine sound. aim is jnana shakti, which a sound that opens the mind to receive the divine wisdom of the heart. srīm is the bijaksharas of Maha Lakshmi Devi and is Tejomayi or the form of divine light. srīm is iccha shakti, which is a divine energy that helps you develop the noble and holy desire for full self-realization.  hrīm is the bijaksharas of Maha Shakti, the Supreme Energy, and is Saktimayi or the form of the divine cosmic energy. hrīm is kriya shakti, which supports developing a dharmic lifestyle. sarasvatī devyai namah is a sacred salutation that reveres and honors the divine form of the universe known as Saraswati Devi. 

The Saraswati Mantra is considered to be the mother or source of all the sounds contained in the Vedas. Om is the primordial sound that pervades the entire universe and from this primordial sound bijaksharas, or seed letters, were heard by the ancient Rishis. This particular mantra is simple, but extremely potent because it contains the bijaksharas or seed letters that that act like laser beams that burn through the genetic mind. Each bijaksharas contains an invisible silent energy that has the power to completely transform your consciousness. The seed letters are infused with the omniscient grace of God and improve your intellect, speech, and memory capacity.

Gayatri Mantra
(The supreme mantra)

oṁ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃ bhárgo
devásya dhīmahi dhíyo yó naḥ prachodáyāt

Translation: Let us all adore the supreme God who illuminates us all, who creates us all, the supreme silence from which all form arises and to which we all must return. We pray in all humility that this divinity direct our attention to the supreme silence and eternal freedom of the heart.

What is Gayatri? It really means ‘Let me concentrate on That which illumines all’.
