Here’s an excerpt from my book, Delight: Eight Principles For Living with Joy And Ease which is FREE ON AMAZON this weekend- grab a copy!
Stay tuned- I’ll post practices every few days to inspire and encourage your practice- I KNOW this time of year can feel a little.. STRESS-FULL after our long, glorious- too fast summer.
I’ll share a chant with you as a place to start a practice and invite Aha into your life. This chant is a beautiful reminder and a prayer for our practice of delight and our world. I have it written down and posted in my office and near my bed. I read, chant, and meditate on these words regularly. Doing so often helps to gently guide me into a place of inner strength and purpose. You can also set a reminder on your phone to alert you to regularly say this chant as you are starting to learn and remember the words.
This is the chant: Lokah Samasta Sukinoh Bhavantu
It translates from the Sanskrit as “Let the entire world be happy,” and is associated with this prayer: “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 that freedom.”
I also have recorded videos of the practices you can get here.
