There is a beautiful mantra that always moves me, at first without knowing its translation from Sanskrit. The sound of each word vibrating into my being. Feeling the present moment fold into me, a warm tear running down my cheek. It is often we hear a sound, feel an element, or breathe in an aroma capable of connecting us to our truth. This is a mantra for Innocence.
Om Kumara Kushalo, Dayayei Namaha
"Salutations to the divine mother, who brings blessings to children"
Perhaps we have little ones, or perhaps our awareness is opening to the child we carry within ourselves. We are all children of the Earth - innocent, pure beings. Great responsibility and care comes upon us now as we begin to completely love and nurture all parts of ourselves, the light and the shadow.
I invite you today to sing this mantra or repeat it three times aloud, feeling its vibration awaken the child in you, bless a child close to you, or one in a far away land. May we surround all children with love and nurturance.
