Om Namah Shivaya - Ancient Mantra from the Yajurveda - Alternate Version

Here is a pronunciation of the ancient "Om Namah Shivaya" mantra.

There is no exact way to capture and translate the meaning of this mantra into English. It is a salutation to Shiva, meaning "I bow to Shiva." It is also seen as a salutation to the divine. Apparently according to author Elizabeth Gilbert, it can also mean "I honor the divinity within myself." Another common translation is, "May the greatest that can be in this world be created within myself, within others, and within the world."

We also included the mantra Hari Om at the ends in this rendition, which is known as one of the most universal mantras and is frequently paired with other mantras at the beginning or end.
