«Om Namah Shivaya» is one of the most powerful Sanskrit mantras (phrases designed to create a transformation in consciousness).
This mantra begins with the primordial sound “OM”.
“Namah” means “to bow” or “to honor”.
In Hinduism, Shiva is that aspect of the Divine which breaks down or brings to a close the creative cycle.
The mantra may be experienced as an appeal to God as the destroyer of our illusion and ignorance that stands in the way of perfect union.
Shiva is also the god of Varanasi (Benaras) where I took this picture.
Those two ladies had a deep in the holy waters of river Ganga and the youngest one is helping the other one to drape her sari.
