Day 9 | December 29
For this exercise, we are going to call upon the goddess Parvati by chanting to her. Parvati is the Hindu goddess of love and devotion. Why chant? Performing these mantras calm and balance the mind, body, and spirit. Do this mantra early in the morning before you start your day, preferably when there is no animal protein in the stomach.
Goddess Parvati Mantra Meditation Items needed:
mala beads (with 108 beads)
picture printout or figurine of Parvati
a pearl or token to leave Parvati (flower, etc.)
Call upon Parvati. Sit or lie in a quiet, comfortable spot. Hold your mala beads in hand (if you don’t have them, do your best to count the number of times you are chanting the mantra). Do this chant three times around your mala bead or about 25 minutes or so if not using mala beads.
Chant: Om Hreem Shakthi Om Ni
Meaning: Om is the sacred sound of the Universe. Hreem, sometimes written as Hrim, is the feminine divine aspect of Parvati. She connects you to yin and yang energy due to her relationship as the consort of Shiva. Shakthi means divine goddess energy and Ni meaning new in Hindu.
After the mantra is completed, leave the token in front of Parvati’s icon. Do this again in 30 days or when you feel called to.
