OM SHRIM SOM SOMAYA NAMAH ~ MA SHIVAMAYI ACHARYA

The Moon is a Sattvic or spiritual planet. It gives faith, love, openness, surrender, devotion, peace and happiness. As a very sensitive and mutable planet, the Moon can be easily influenced and overcome by other planetary energies. Saturn can darken it, depress it or give it detachment. The Moon represents not only responsiveness but also inertia. Through our lunar sensitivity, we can become accustomed to a life of pain, sorrow, or ignorance, as well as to a life of joy and truth.

The following is the special name (nama) mantra for the Moon as preceded by it’s Shakti or power mantra. It can be used to connect with the planetary deity and to energize all the higher powers of the Moon. 

“Om Shrim Som Somaya Namah”

 

The word ‘Shrim’ in above mantra denotes Sharana Shakti, the power of refuge, surrender, peace and delight. (The word ‘Shrim’ should be pronounced as ‘Shreem’.)
