Closing Mantra (Om Purnamadah)

Often reserved for the end of one's practice or study, the following is a profoundly blessed Vedic mantra:

Listen!

 

Om Purnamadah Purnamidam Purnat Purnamudachyate 

 Purnasya Purnamadaya Purnamevavashisyate

 

Loosely translated...

That is fullness.  This is fullness.  From fullness all things come.  Never was there a time fullness did not exist, never will there be a time when fullness is not present. Such is the nature of Life.
