    Mantra Pushpam

    Mantra Pushpam

    (The flower of Vedic chants)
    Translation By P.R.Ramachander



    This great mantra is taken from Taithreeya Aranyakam of Yajur Veda. It is normally sung in a chorus by all the priests together after performing any Pooja (worship) or Yagna. It tells in short that water is the basis of this universe. The reason why it is repeated in all functions is not known to me. What I have attempted is a simple translation of this great chant.

    He who understands the flowers of water,
    He becomes the possessor of flowers, children and cattle.
    Moon is the flower of the water,
    He who understands this fact,
    He becomes the possessor of flowers, children and cattle.
    He who knows the source of water,
    Becomes established in himself,

    This stanza is included in some versions of mantra Pushpam
    Om Thad Brahma,Om it is Brahma
    Om Thad Vayu.Om it is air
    Om Thad AthmaOm it is the soul
    Om Thad SathyamOm it is the truth
