Hello art fans,
I hope all of you are having a great week!
Today, I want to talk to you about mantras. We all have different mantras that we live by. A mantra is a word (or set of words) that is repeated frequently with the intent of creating a positive atmosphere. The purpose of speaking or chanting a mantra can vary; it can range from focusing on self-reflection, seeking peace or relaxing the mind and body.
I have created a work of art that has the mantra “Om Sai Ram”. The purpose of this mantra is three-fold:
Om: According to Hindu scriptures, Om is the universe; the past, present and future, all that was, all that is, and all that will be is Om.
Sai: Sai actually refers to Sai Baba, who was a religious saint known for encouraging individuals to pray, chant/sing God’s name and ready holy scriptures. He was a believer of multiple religions, including Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.
Ram: Ram is the 7th incarnation of Vishnu and was known for performing duties as an individual and for defeating evil.
All three of these words have their own meaning but when combined, means so much more. To me, “Om Sai Ram” is a beautiful way of preaching about our gods, especially Sai Baba. Sai Baba (also known as Shirdi Sai Baba) was a great spiritual master and a positive soul. He was an incarnation of Lord Shiva and Dattatreya. He gave beautiful teachings to the world, so much so where books have been written on his specific teachings. Hence for me, saying “Om Sai Ram” is a way of remembering Sai Baba. It’s a beautiful mantra that I love to chant and it helps in bringing positive vibes around me. I would request you all to search “om sai ram” on YouTube and try playing it in your surroundings or may be when you meditate for a few minutes. You will feel amazing! If you do try it out, please share how you felt about it.
