Three Year Mantra Practice

Swami Ritavan Bharati has guided the AHYMSIN Sangha into a new mantra practice for the next 3 years. The mantra given is the Saumyā mantra combined with a Tārā mantra.

सौम्या सौम्यतराशेष सौम्येभ्यस्त्वतिसुन्दरी ।
परापराणां परमा त्वमेव परमेश्वरी ॥
तारे तुत्तारे तुरे स्वाहा.

saumyā saumyātarāśeṣa saumyebhyas tvati sundarī ,
parāparāṇāṁ paramā tvameva parameśvarī.
tāre tut tāre ture svāhā.
