Recite This Prayer 13 Times
Om purnamadah purnamidam
Om shanti shanti shanti hi
Purnam-Adah: “That is complete.” Here, ‘that’ could refer to everything
that is not part of one’s perceived sense of self (self-identify.)
Purnam-Idam: “This is complete.” Here, ‘this’ could refer to everything
that is part of one’s perceived sense of self (self-identify.)
Purnat-Purnam-Udachyate: “From one complete entity, another
complete entity is born.“ The first entity refers to the ‘that’ and the
second entity refers to the ‘this’—the two aspects of outer and inner
sense of self-identity.
Purnasya Purnamadaya: “When a complete entity is taken away from a complete entity …“
Purnameva-Vashishyate: “What remains is also complete.”
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti – “Let there be peace.”
