ALOHA KE AKUA
GOD IS LOVE
"Aloha ke Akua: To recognize ke Akua (God) as the supreme being, to acknowledge His hand in all things, and to be appreciative of His many blessings." mamalahoa.org
"The Spirit of Aloha... The literal meaning of aloha is “the presence of breath” or “the breath of life.” It comes from “Alo,” meaning presence, front and face, and “ha,” meaning breath. Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect. Its deep meaning starts by teaching ourselves to love our own beings first and afterwards to spread the love to others.
According to the old kahunas (priests), being able to live the Spirit of Aloha was a way of reaching self-perfection and realization for our own body and soul. Aloha is sending and receiving a positive energy. Aloha is living in harmony. When you live the Spirit of Aloha, you create positive feelings and thoughts, which are never gone. They exist in space, multiply and spread over to others."
Om or Aum is the primordial sound, a mystic syllable, considered the most sacred mantra in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism. It appears at the beginning and end of most Sanskrit recitations, prayers, and texts. Sometimes Om is regarded as three sounds, a-u-m, symbolic of the three major Hindu deities. In the Indian sacred texts it is said
"In the Beginning was Om"

OM NAMAH SHIVAYA
I BOW TO MY HIGHER SELF
Known as the great redeeming mantra, also known as the five-syllable mantra, "My Adoration goes to Shiva." Shiva is the supreme reality, the inner Self. It is the name given to consciousness that dwells in all. Shiva is the name of your true identity- your self. In this mantra the chanter (one who repeats the mantra) bows to Shiva- his true self.
"Om Namah Shivaya is a very powerful mantra. It has been said about this mantra that if this mantra vibrates continually in your heart, then you have no need to perform austerities, to meditate, or to practise yoga. To repeat this mantra you need no rituals or ceremonies, nor must you repeat it at an auspicious time or in a particular place.
This mantra is free of all restrictions. It can be repeated by anyone, young or old, rich or poor and no matter what state a person is in, it will purify him."
Translation from: meditationiseasy.com
Om purnam adah purnam idam, Purnat purnam undacyate, Purnasya purnam adaya, Purnam evavasisyate
" Wholeness produces wholeness,
Only wholeness comes out of wholeness,
Only wholeness is.
THAT is infinite, THIS is infinite;
From That, This comes.
THIS added or removed from THAT,
the Infinite remains as Infinite. "

LOKA SAMASTA SUKINO BHAVANTU
LOVE IS THE ESSENCE
Lokah: location, realm, all universes existing now
Samastah: all beings sharing that same location
Sukhino: centered in happiness and joy, free from suffering
Bhav: the divine mood or state of unified existence
Antu: may it be so, it must be so
This is a prayer each one of us can practice every day. It reminds us that our relationships with all beings and things should be mutually beneficial if we ourselves desire happiness and liberation from suffering. No true or lasting happiness can come from causing unhappiness to others. No true or lasting freedom can come from depriving others of their freedom. If we say we want every being to be happy and free, then we have to question everything that we do-how we live, how we eat, what we buy, how we speak, and even how we think.
