Lyrics

Om Asatomaa Sadgamaya
Tamasomaa Jyotirgamaya
Mrityormaa Amritamgamaya

Om purnamadah purnamidam
Purnaat purnamudachyate
Purnasya purnamaadaaya
Purnamevaavashishyate


Meanings:

Lead me from Untruth to Truth.
Lead me from Darkness to Light.
Lead me from Death to Immortality.

That is Whole, This is Whole;
From the Whole, the Whole becomes manifest;
Taking away the Whole from the Whole,
The Whole remains.
