Thank you for subscribing. Something went wrong. O Supreme Personality of Godhead, may we hear auspiciousness with our ears. May we see auspiciousness with our eyes. May we perform yajnas with steady limbs. May we offer prayers. May we spend our lives employing these bodies in the service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. May the glorious Supreme Personality of Godhead, the supreme monarch, grant auspiciousness to us. May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the glorious Deity of all the worlds grant auspiciousness to us.
May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who holds the Sudarsana-cakra and rides on Garuda, grant auspiciousness to us. May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the supreme master, grant auspiciousness to us. Once Narada approached Brahma and said: O master, please teach me the best spiritual knowledge, knowledge that quickly removes all sins and brings spiritual glory and opulence.
He becomes glorious with spiritual opulences. Here are these mantras: Obeisances to You, Lord Hayagriva, who are beyond the material world, and who are filled with spiritual bliss. Obeisances to Lord Vishnu, who is the monarch of all knowledge. O inconceivable Lord who are hymns of the Vedas, the sacred syllable Om, the master of all eloquence, and all the Vedas personified, please enlighten me.
Please enlighten me. I offer my respectful obeisances unto You. The meters are gayatri, trishtup, and anushtup. The bija is Hlaum. The kilaka is Hlum. The viniyoga is enjoyment and liberation. The anga-nyasa is the letters a, u, and m. We worship Lord Hayagriva, who is splendid like the moon, and who holds a conchshell, disc, maha-mudra, and book in His four arms. Om and Srim are two syllables. Hlaum is one syllables. Om namo bhagavate is seven syllables.
Hayagrivaya is five syllables. Vishnave is three syllables. Mahyam medham prajnam is six syllables. Prayaccha svaha is five syllables. This is the transcendental mantra of Lord Hayagriva. Note: The mantra here is: Om srim hlaum om namo bhagavate hayagrivaya vishnave mahyam medham prajnam prayaccha svaha Obeisances to Lord Hayagriva, who is Vishnu.
O Lord Hayagriva, please give me intelligence and wisdom. Aim aim aim is three syllables. Klim klim is two syllables. Sauh sauh is two syllables. Hrim is one syllable.
This is the fifth mantra of Lord Hayagriva. Note: The mantra here is: Om srim hrim aim aim aim klim klim sauh sauh hrim om namo bhagavate hayagrivaya mahyam medham prajnam prayaccha svaha Obeisances to Lord Hayagriva. Now I will explain the single-syllable Hayagriva mantra.
Brahma taught this mantra to Siva. Siva taught it to Sankarshana, Sankarshana taught it to Narada. Narada taught it to Vyasa, and Vyasa taught it to the people.
This single-syllable bija-mantra is the word Hlaum, which consists of the three letters h, l, and om. They who chant this Hlaum bija-mantra attain both wealth and learning. They attain knowledge of the transcendental form of Lord Hayagriva and they also attain liberation, becoming free from the entanglement of residing in a material body. They become the rulers of the dik-palas, kings, and nagas. Surya and others diligently chant this single-syllable Hayagriva mantra.
Of all bija-mantras, the single-syllable Hayagriva bija-mantra is the best. It is the king of mantras. The syllable Hlaum is the transcendental form of Lord Hayagriva Himself. Another mantra is: Amritam kuru kuru svaha Please make me immortal. They who chant this mantra attain eloquence, wealth, and the results of ashtanga-yoga. Another mantra is: Hlaum sakala-samrajyena siddhim kuru kuru svaha Please make me king of all lands. If he knows these mantras an impure person becomes pure, and a debauchee becomes a pure-hearted celibate.
He is excused from his crimes. He is excused from killing a brahmana and committing a host of other sins. While he lives in this world he controls his body as the master of a house controls his house. At the time of death, when he leaves this body, he attains the company of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
He becomes liberated even while living in this world. I offer my respectful obeisances to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. May I always remember Him. May nothing stop me from remembering Him. May I never forget what my ears have heard about Him. Thus the Upanishad. Invalid email address. Submit Article. Ask a Question. Like these articles?
