Sanskrit of the Day

best yoga cd ever!

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu.  May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in someway to that happiness and that freedom for all.

This is such a beautiful phrase.  It is used often around the practice of yoga as a dedication for the practice.  I love it because it forces you to think about other people during your practice.  Whether you are dedicating your practice to the happiness of someone specific in your life or sending positive energy to all, its nice to lift up out of your own muck and think about helping others.  

Listen to the most beautiful song, chanting this phrase, at Lokah Music‘s site.  Take refuge in Uma and Michael‘s soothing voices chanting these beautiful words that have been said all over the world, for thousands of years.  Perfect yoga music.  Their cd The Ivy Ceiling is so good!
