History of the mantra

Ashtanga yoga is also known as the Eight-limb yoga. Here, the eight limbs represent eight principles:

  1. Yama, meaning moral codes
  2. Niyama, meaning self-purification
  3. Asana, meaning posture
  4. Pranayama, meaning breath-control or breathwork
  5. Pratyahara, meaning sense-control
  6. Dhyana, meaning meditation
  7. Dharana, meaning concentration
  8. Samadhi, meaning contemplation or, in some interpretations, salvation

Vinyasa is the movement of body and breath that effectively cleanses the mind and body. Every movement is carried out in one breath.

The Ashtanga Vinyasa Closing Mantra is chanted at the end of a yoga session to conclude the peaceful practice of yoga.

The session ends with a wish to bestow peace upon the earth and every being residing in it.
