Om Purnamadah Mantras
from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
5.1.1; trans. from
The Nectar of Chanting
, 4th ed., 2017 reprint (South Fallsburg, NY: SYDA Foundation, 1984), p. 63.
I repeat this mantra every day before I commence my work in the morning and when I wind up my work in the evening. It is a sweet reminder for me to remain aware that everything is perfect. It is my goal to embrace the inherent perfection that is present in every situation, every interaction. Although being rooted in this awareness is challenging at times, I turn to this mantra for support.
I have always loved these mantras. Today as I finished reciting them, I closed my eyes, and waves of bliss began rolling through my body, and I experienced the perfection within.
I love the deep wisdom of the
mantra. As an artist, I decide when my work is finished and perfect. My view may not be the same as other people’s views. Since there is no end to perfection, I have to decide at some point:
it is finished, now it is perfect. Painting helps me to practice the vision of unity. When I look closely at the beauty of nature, all that remains is the perfection that shines through as pure, divine Consciousness in everything.
Such a beautiful, poetic mantra. It always stirs a feeling of sacredness in me and reminds me of the importance of trust.
