Gratitude Mantras for Thanksgiving

1) om namo bhagavate vasudevaya

literal translation for this mantra is ‘Om, I bow to Lord Vasudeva or Lord Krishna‘
or ‘I honor all that sustains me.’

Tvameva mata cha pita tvameva,
Tvameva badhu scja sakha tvameva.
Tvameva vidya dravinam tvameva,
Tvameva sarvam mama deva devah.

You are the mother, you are the father,
You are the family, you are the friend.
You are all wisdom, you are all treasure,
You are my everything, My Lord My Lord.

3)Om Namah Shivaya

I bow to Shiva, the supreme deity of transformation who represents the truest, highest self.

4) Ang Sang Wahe Guru

The Infinite Being, God, is with me, and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being.

5)Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, Mrityor mamratam gamaya

Lead me from the unreal to the Real, Lead me from darkness to Light, Lead me from death to immortality

6) Guru Stotram
(last verse)
Brahmanandam parama sukhadam kevalam jnanamurtim
dvandvaateetam gagana sadrusam tatvamasyadi lakshyam
ekam nityam vimala machalam sarvadheesaakshibuutam
bhaavaateetam triguna rahitam sadgurum tam namaami.

The Inner Guru (teacher), Brahman (the one universal consciousness), gives bliss and supreme happiness.
The Inner Guru is absolute unity and
is the very substance of all knowledge.
The Inner Guru, by existing beyond dualism,
is absolute truth, blue sky, heaven.
To see the Inner Guru's true nature is my first
and foremost objective, this is the primary aim of my life.
The Inner Guru is one—eternal, pure, immovable,
existing as the supreme witness of the mind of all beings.
Existing beyond and free from the three gunas, or states of being.
To that Essential Guru, Truth itself, I bow.

7) Vagarthaviva sampriktau vagarthah pratipattaye | Jagatah pitarau vande parvathiparameshwarau || – Raghuvamsha 1.1

Thou art my Mother, my Father thou art.
Thou art my Brother and my Friend thou art.
Thou art my True Knowledge, my Wealth thou art.
Thou art my Everything, my Lord of Lords.

8) Om Bhuur-Bhuvah Svah
Tat-Savitur-Varennyam |
Bhargo Devasya Dhiimahi
Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracodayaat ||

Earth (the physical world, matter),
Atmosphere (breath of life, that which animates matter),
Heavens (celestial realm, our spiritual existence)…
We meditate on that source of the brilliant radiance, which is to be held sacred. Let that source be the inspiration for our thoughts, prayers, and intentions. Om.
