Meditation on Yaa-Arnnave-Adhi Mantra

Through the Yaa-Arnnave-Adhi Mantra of Bhoomi Sukta (verse 8) of Atharva Veda we meditate on the Divine heart of Mother Earth. We try to realize our own divine nature whose presence is felt within our heart. Refer to the translation of Bhoomi Sukta here.

Bhoomi Devi

यार्णवेऽधि सलिलमग्न आसीद्यां मायाभिरन्वचरन्मनीषिणः ।
यस्या हृदयं परमे व्योमन्त्सत्येनावृतममृतं पृथिव्याः ।
सा नो भूमिस्त्विषिं बलं राष्ट्रे दधातूत्तमे ॥८॥

Yasyaa Hrdayam Parame Vyomant-Satyena-Aavrtam-Amrtam Prthivyaah |
Saa No Bhuumis-Tvissim Balam Raassttre Dadhaatu-Uttame ||

1. यार्णवेऽधि सलिलमग्न आसीद्यां: Sitting above the sea as well as lying immersed in its waters (in meditation) ...

2. मायाभिरन्वचरन्मनीषिणः: The sages meditated on Her (i.e. on Bhoomi Devi) by supernatural powers (of yoga to understand Her essential nature).

3. यस्या हृदयं परमे व्योमन्त्सत्येनावृतममृतं पृथिव्याः: They found that Her heart lies in the highest Divine plane [Parama Vyoman] enveloped by Truth [Satya] and Immortality [Amrta].

May we meditate on the Divine heart of Bhoomi Devi and realize our divine nature.
