Mantramala - Sampurna by TKV Desikachar, Mekhala Desikachar

How do we define wellbeing ?
Is it a body that is fit and free of disease?
Is it a mind that is focused and free of agitation?
Is it a spirit that is characterized by conviction and confidence?
OR is it a combination of all these and more?

No matter how each of us defines wellbeing, what lies at the core of this concept is a healthy mind in a healthy body, empowered by an indomitable spirit.

This may sound an ambitious proposition. Nevertheless, it must be possible for all our ancient texts speak about this harmonious integration of mind, body and spirit.

How does one work towards what seems a challenging goal, given the pressures of life today?

Great masters have shown us the path a path that is paved with the stepping stones of devotion, sincerity, commitment, detachment and surrender. Presented in this audio CD are some beautiful and inspirational slokas or poems composed by five of India's legendary masters Adi Sankara, Bhartrhari, Vedanta Desika, Vallabhacharya and T Krishnamacharya.

Resonating with lyrical beauty and profound meaning, just listening to these chants can help us to empower ourselves from the core of divinity within.

This composition of Adi Sankara, the great yogi and philosopher, is a warm tribute to the teacher. According to this chant, whatever success we may have, whatever wisdom we may claim to possess, whatever discipline we may follow, it is worth nothing if we fail to acknowledge and honor our teacher. On the other hand, if a student is totally devoted to his or her teacher, then no force including God can harm the student in any way.

ahimsa prathamam puspam
Based on the work, "Prapanna Parijatam" by Vatsya Varadacharya, this adaptation highlights the importance of compassion, non-violence, forgiveness, discipline, truthfulness and other such qualities. Cultivating these qualities in ourselves is the best kind of flower that we can offer to Surya or the sun, who is revered as a powerful divine force.

vairagya slokam
