Translation, History & Significance of the Mantras

Nitai Gauranga

Mantra for expressing and invoking gratitude

This mantra is composed of the names of two historical Bhakti Yoga saints who revitalized the spiritual practice of Kirtan in society. They envisioned and ignited the spreading of Bhakti wisdom and authentic Kirtan mantras all throughout the world. In essence, this mantra honors the great personalities who have carefully preserved and passed down the sacred tradition of Kirtan meditation.

om namo bhagavate vasudevaya

Translation: I offer my respects to the Supreme Source - who is Love Personified

The Śrīmad Bhāgavatam (aka Bhagavata Purana) is described as the "ripened fruit" of all Vedic wisdom texts. In other words, the compiler of the Vedas himself - Vyasadev - explains that this 18,000 verse text is the essence of all spiritual knowledge. The very first line of the book is "Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya" - signifying that the essence of spiritual realization is to develop a deeply personal relationship with our Original Divine Source which is expressed through love and service.

sita ram jaya sita ram

Sita is a name denoting the Divine Feminine energy and Ram is a name denoting the Divine Masculine energy.

This mantra glorifies the perfect & complete combination of compassion and power of Divinity. The more we develop our spiritual practice and nourish our relationship with Source, the more deeply we are empowered to embody both compassion towards others and spiritual strength.

This is known as the Maha Mantra - the greatest mantra for cleansing the mirror of the heart so we can reawaken the dormant consciousness within us that is eternal, fully cognizant, and inconceivably blissful.

Hare, Krishna, and Rama are the 3 primary (of the unlimited) names in the Vedic tradition that describe Divinity. Hare means supreme energy, Krishna means all attractive, and Rama means the reservoir of spiritual pleasure.

Translation: O Divine Energy, O All Attractive Source, O Reservoir of Pleasure, please engage me in Divine Service.
