The Argala Stotram is a hymn from the Devi Mahatmyam. It is chanted along with other hymns before delving into the Devi Mahatmyam. As a stand-alone hymn saturated with devotion, it bestows deep peace, beauty, and equanimity.
Part of the Atharvana Veda, this hymn is also known as the Ganapathi Upanishad and celebrates the beloved elephant-headed deity as the supreme non-dual reality.
Narayana Suktam describes Narayana as the indwelling Self of all..
The Gayatri Mantra is the most revered of all mantras. This video describes the meaning and significance of this mantra against the backdrop of 108 repetitions.
The Sri Suktam is a Rig Vedic hymn in praise of Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance, beauty and prosperity. Lakshmi represents the divine in manifestation. This hymn invokes Her grace in all endeavors, material and/or spiritual.
These well-known verses, composed by Adi Shankaracharya contain the essence of Advaita Vedanta.
The Chamakam is the second part of the Sri Rudram (which is considered incomplete without the inclusion of the Chamakam).
The Sri Rudram is typically chanted during abhisheka (pouring of water, milk and other mixtures to signify bathing or purification) for Lord Shiva. It is said to be particularly potent when chanted on Mahashivaratri day, which falls on February 27th of 2014.
Meditation on the Gita, here depicted as the Divine Mother herself and a distillation of the Upanishads, sung by Lord Krishna, the "Jagatguru" or cosmic teacher.
