The Om Purnamadah Purnamidam as part of the Peace Prayers is:
Purnam Adah Purnam Idam
Purnat Purnam Udachyate /
Purnasya Purnam Adaya
Purnam Evavashishyate //
It is sung by Lalita and the Kinderyogaübungsleiterausbildung-Gruppe, and is musically accompanied by a dynamic accompaniment to the participation. This Shanti Mantra is a Veda Mantra, one of the most important and well-known verses of the Vedas. Purna means fullness, perfection, infinity. Thus, in this Veda mantra the fullness, the infinity, the unity of the creation are sung. In the Yoga Vidya Kirtan Songbook, you will find the Kirtan text. "Om Purnamadah" can be singled as a single mantra, you can sing it at the beginning of the meditation to get into a meditative state, you can sing it at the end of the meditation and you can also sing it at the beginning or end of a yoga practise or a lecture recite. At Yoga Vidya we recite it every morning and evening in the Yoga Vidya Ashrams at the end of the Satsangs.
