Om Namo Bhagavate
“Really, it is a difficult time. I think that we ought to be very quiet, very quiet, very quiet. I am going to tell you my old mantra; it keeps the outer being very quiet:
OM NAMO BHAGAVATE.
These three words. For me they meant:
- OM — I implore the Supreme Lord.
- NAMO — Obeisance to Him.
- BHAGAVATE — Make me divine.
This is a translation of it, I mean... Did you hear?
- Yes, Mother.
For me that has the power to calm everything.”
