The Moola mantra is an invocation for the presence of God by various qualities, to nurture and sustain us towards our higher realization of self as Oneness with source. This mantra starts with a now very famous Sanskrit expression “Sat Chit Ananda” which loosely means Truth Consciousness Bliss. In other words… the true source of this existence is consciousness and it’s nature is bliss.
While the mantra on this page is commonly called the Moola Mantra this is actually a bit vague as there are actually many Moola Mantras, or root mantra for various deities. I have as of yet been unable to find any credible source which cites the origin of this Moola Mantra starting with Sat Chit Ananda.
ॐ सच्चिदानंद परब्रह्म
पुरुषोत्तम परमात्मा |
श्री भगवती समेत
श्री भगवते नमः ||
(हरी ओम् तत् सत्)
Om Sat Chit Ananda Parabrahma
Sri Bhagavati Sametha
Sri Bhagavate Namaha
(Hari Om Tat Sat)
Om, Blissful consciousness is the true reality, it is the source of all
It manifests in Life to guide all beings, and speaks as my inner voice
The divine energy, like a mother fulfilling many roles, guides me together with
the divine consciousness, like a father steadying my mind, I am grateful in reverence.
