Happiness and Freedom
"Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu" is commonly associated with the Jivamukti Yoga School. It translates to "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all." It is a powerful chant that focuses on living a life as a servant to the greater good. It encourages cooperation, compassion and living in harmony, not only among other humans but with nature as well.
As someone who believes in protecting this earth of ours, and feels a deep connection to nature, this is the perfect chant to start off the new year. Perhaps, if more of us focus on contributing to the happiness and freedom of others, we can help heal the earth and each other.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
