When will all this end?
How will I cope?
Where will I get money?
What if we can never hug again?
Sound correlates to the throat chakra and the ether element. It is the most subtle sense and the most expansive and pervasive. Sound travels quickly and has the capacity to create rapid change. Mantra is immediate and works on our most expansive layer.
Yogrishi calls mantra a vibrational antibiotic. Through specific sound syllables that have been used for thousands of years, we vibrate our cells and our brain, we harmonize our thoughts and also send these sound-waves out around us. Gayatri Mantra, dedicated to Goddess Gayatri who represents infinite knowledge, can be a huge aid to our rushing mind and soothe our fearful thoughts.
oṃ bhur bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tat savitur vareṇyaṃ
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayat
The eternal, earth, air, heaven
That glory, that resplendence of the sun
May we contemplate the brilliance of that light
May the sun inspire our minds.
