Mantra tattoo

It's the Gayatri Mantra, a mantra that should be chanted as a meditation, three times a day, according to my religious tradition.

OMG, I have Krsna on my back! :D Krsna as Paramatma... My husband has Maha Mantra on his arm, but it's too small, so now is kinda ugly... "/

Anyway, I think it really fit as a great combination! ^^

I love the Gayatri Mantra! I chant it nearly every day, with a video on Youtube.
It's the same one?
drianis's avatar
Yes, this is the Gayatri's 1st line. Every sampradaya has its own lines, too. On ISKCON, we have some other 6 lines, but those just can be spoken by one's guru, on the ear of the disciple.

Is a very beautiful mantra!!!

Ohhh, ok!

I found another version I like better I think. ([link])

It definitely is such a beautiful mantra. It helps me out a lot to deal with life/
drianis's avatar
Yes, this one is better! *.*

It's really so cool that you have such a tattoo.. I mean I try to get people interested in mantras, the Gayatri Mantra or the Medicine Buddha mantra or something but I never get any reply. People are just interested in material / external objects. Life can be difficult but those mantras are powerful help. Anyway I think it's really cool that you know of them. Your kid is really lucky to have you as her mother! :)

This is the Medicine Buddha mantra I was talking about.

Hehehehehe, thank you! Yeah, mantras are something very special, I believe. And you're right, most of people just wanna have fun, and forget about spiritual issues.

My students ask what is it, and I answer, "is a pray for spiritual elevation". they look at me like O.O , like no one ever told them about it.

Poor souls...

Let's see the Buddha mantra...

Ficou muito bem traçada alem de muito bonita! Quem fez essa tattoo?
drianis's avatar
Fiz em Curitiba, com um carinha chamado Bhagavan. Ele é bem bom, mesmo. Já tinha visto uns trampos dele em uma amiga minha, e ele detona. Fez os traços (meus) de forma super cuidadosa, mediu as linhas, tudo direitinho!

Raphaelkoizo's avatar
Dá pra se ver que o cara é bom! Parabéns novamente, ficou foda!
