Lady Gaga once again came in limelight when she tweeted a shloka(verse) in Sanskrit in wee hours.
Her tweet got viral over social media like a wildfire in the forest.
she wrote, “Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu ”
Lokah samastahat sukhino bhavantu is a Sanskrit prayer that is often chanted at the conclusion or near the end of a yoga asana practice. Although a common element of modern yoga classes, it is an ancient mantra that dates back many centuries.
So, if you don’t know what that verse actually means, don’t worry, we have its translation for you.
The simplest translation of the shloka is: “May all beings everywhere be free and happy.” A more expanded translation from Jivamukti yoga also adds “… And may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
While all Hindus and Indians appreciate her tweet, replying with positive responses along with one writing JAI SHREE RAM (hail lord Rama)as a reply, some people are finding difficulty in deciphering her tweet.
