- Aum Lambodaraya Namah
This means you feel that you are this universe. It means that all
the celestial bodies are within you. Like an entire tree is in the
seed, the whole universe is in the sound of creation, which is Aum,
and that Aum consciousness in you makes you feel that you are the

in that high consciousness, this whole world looks like a dream. All
of us have taken a role. We have to play our role in life as wife or
husband or children or citizens, all consistent with the role we
have taken. When an actor bitten by a sponge cobra that is brought
on the stage falls, the entire audience cries; but that boy who has
fallen knows it was not a real cobra and he is not dead. Life is a
drama --definitely life in this material world, this physical world
of ego, is a drama. But inside, like the boy on the stage who is
quite happy knowing that he didn't die by the bite of the sponge
cobra, like that, the truth never dies in us; it is immortal. So
everything else you consider as drama. That consciousness comes to
you by knowing this mantra.

country requiring healing, then you have to bring that entire group
to your mind's arena and say this mantra. A group healing takes

- Aum Bhalachandraya Namah

crescent moon. Bhalachandra means that chakra from where the nectar

Shiva, identifying yourself with the Truth and feeling constantly
that you are carrying the crescent moon, the symbol of growth and
nectar of peace.
