Shiva Mandala, Om Namah Shivaya Mantra Mandala
Material used = Cotton canvas, natural pigment, Gold leaf
The popular mantra Om Namah Shivaya is steeped in a deep history and is wrought with literal and inferred meaning. Directly translated, it means “my salutations to Shiva, the auspicious one.” But the meaning of that and who Shiva is where we find all sorts of depth and power.
The separate words that make up this beautiful mantra are as follows:
• Om: The Sound of creation. The first vibration that emerged out of the void and silence that existed before creation. It is also the root of the word amen.
• Namah: my salutations, or I bow and offer deference.
• Shiva: to Shiva, auspicious one. Shiva is the god of destruction and knowledge and is the newer version of the more ancient for Rudra. His name specifically means, auspicious, propitious, gracious, benign, kind, benevolent, friendly.
• Aya: can mean “to” or “for” the word that it is attached to. The word ya by itself means the soul. This word is a grammatical aspect and also a word unto itself.
