As I am learning new Sanskrit words, I sometimes feel inspired to share some of the ancient scripts. I will post them titled “Sanskrit Times” implying my quality time with Sanskrit.
Today, I read the following verse, took from the Vows being chanted during the Wedding Ceremony in India.
oṃ asato mā sadgamaya
tamaso mā jyotirgamaya
mṛtyormā amṛtaṃ gamaya
oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ
The English translation by Shunori Ramanathan is as follows:
Lead me from the unreal to the real
From the darkness to the light
From death to immortality
Let there be peace, peace, peace
