Meditation on Giriyas-Te Parvata Mantra

Through the Giriyas-Te Parvata Mantra of Bhoomi Sukta (verse 11) of Atharva Veda we meditate on the Joy spread by the Hills, Snow-clad Mountains and Forests of Bhoomi Devi. We try to feel the intrinsic Joy present within the universal soul which is reflected within our own soul as well as in the outside nature. Refer to the translation of Bhoomi Sukta here.

Bhoomi Devi

गिरयस्ते पर्वता हिमवन्तोऽरण्यं ते पृथिवि स्योनमस्तु ।
बभ्रुं कृष्णां रोहिणीं विश्वरूपां ध्रुवां भूमिं पृथिवीमिन्द्रगुप्ताम् ।
अजीतेऽहतो अक्षतोऽध्यष्ठां पृथिवीमहम् ॥
Girayas-Te Parvataa Himavanto-[A]rannyam Te Prthivi Syonam-Astu |
Babhrum Krssnnaam Rohinniim Vishvaruupaam Dhruvaam Bhuumim Prthiviim-Indra-Guptaam |

1. गिरयस्ते पर्वता हिमवन्तः: May we feel the Joy present in the Hills and Snow-Clad Mountains [Girayas-Te Parvataa Himavantah] of Mother Earth.
