Kumara mantra lyrics:
”Om Kumara Kushalo, Dayayei Namaha.”
Om Kumara mantra translation:
Salutations to the Divine Mother, who brings blessings to children.
Interpreted by Deva Premal & Miten feat. Manose, Maneesh de Moor, from the album A Deeper Light (April 23, 2013).
In an interview with Sam Slovik of LA Yoga Magazine, Deva Premal discussed the potent effect when chanting Sanskrit mantras:
“The meaning is secondary.
The word table is not the table…with Sanskrit, the word Ananda is the sound vibration of bliss.
In sound the energy of bliss.
We have to say bliss; we have to make it smaller by putting it into an English word.
Just the sound; ananda, If we were sensitive enough, we’d just feel the entire scope of that energy that’s contained in this sound… It’s working on a cellular level. It’s much deeper than the mind.
It’s not a language that you need to understand the meaning of before you use it. It’s a deep Universal sound code that connects every one of us.”
Mantra chanting benefits
Chanting a Sanskrit has numerous benefits when done in the correct manner. The practice triggers certain healing vibrations in different parts of the body. Therefore, when applied appropriately (this include – chanting the mantra before sunrise, a correct pronunciation, and a sincere intention), they can facilitate and enhance physical, energetical, spiritual, emotional and mental health.
Moreover, saying a meditation mantra during times of stress, for many practitioners, brings about some relaxation and helps them to better deal with whatever the crisis of the moment is.
