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.

(This last stanza is normally recited by priests while giving back prasada after performing an Archana in all temples)

Who is the giver of all victories,
Who is the fulfiller of all desires,
Please bless me with wealth,
To fulfill all our desires,
Oh, Kubhera*, we praise thee,
Salutations to the king of kings.
* Kubhera is the Lord of wealth.
