Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu - Be Happy and Free!
Great post by @VeronicaFiorino_Yoga - check out her other posts on Instagram - definitely worth the read!
It means, “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.”
I’ve been using mantra meditation, specifically japa meditation, this week and been focusing on this phrase. Reminding myself that each thing I do impacts someone else, so I should do my best to make that impact positive.
Given all that is going on in the world today, this phrase has been heavy on my heart. If everyone thought more about their impact on others, regardless of how they looked or identified, we might be in a more supportive society. Like one of my teachers said in 300 HR, “yoga is social justice”.
