Mantra tattoo by drianis Mantra tattoo by drianis
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.

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!!!

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...

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!

Obrigada!
