Ahaṃ viśvam. I am the universe. Taittirīya Upanishad 3.10.

This coming Friday is Vishnupati, which brings in the energy of Vishnu. Vishnu is the great preserver or the one who sustains the universe. In Friday’s blog, I’ll go into a bit more detail about the significance of Vishnupati.

Today, I want to encourage you to work with one of the following two mantras, in preparation for the coming spiritual day on Friday.

Ahaṃ viśvam. (a ham vish vam) I am the universe.

and the second mantra, the Vishnu Gayatri mantra:

Aum Narayanaye Vidmahe
Vasudavaye Dhimahi
Tanno Vishnu Prachodayat

(Om. Let us meditation on Narayana, the Lord who dwells in all beings, and is known as the protector of the world. May Vishnu inspire and illuminate our mind and understanding.)

happy chanting!
