There are 2 mantras that I am extremely fond of; Tvameva Mata mantra, which you will find chanted by Trupti in the following video – Greatest Vedic Mantra to Express Devotion, and the mantra which I am going to present the MP3 for today, Asato Ma Sadgamaya (aka: Asa To Ma Satgamaya). I have enjoyed listening to Asato Ma Sadgamaya ever since the first time I heard it and thankfully it is an integral part of all the prayers and rituals, so I get to hear and enjoy it often .
Below you will find the free MP3 download of this chant, along with the English translation and analysis. Already on the website there are many wonderful mantra chants available, some in MP3 audio format, while others in MP4 video format. You will find all these in the Free Online Mantra MP3 Downloads collection, to which Asato Ma will now also be added or course.

True Meaning of Asato Ma Mantra
This is a really really great mantra. Despite this mantra being only 3 lines, it is still perhaps one of the most profound Vedic mantras ever. What this chant is asking for is the Highest of the Highest. It is a mantra which is implying that the seeker understands finally that there is no peace or happiness in anything material. That anything material will forever be transient and will forever bring suffering. Understanding this, the seeker chants this mantra and asks only for Truth, Truth and Truth.
Above in the meanings, the implications are as follows. In asking for deliverance from "Asat", the seeker is asking for deliverance from Maya, duality or the dream world. The seeker is saying, I feel this reality is not the Truth, please awaken me to the Absolute Truth (Sat). The seeker is aiming for God Realization.
Similarly, in the second line, the seeker is asking to be delivered form darkness (Tamaso), meaning ignorance, to light (Jyotir), meaning awakening. Again, the seeker, understanding that what is most important in life, is awakening to the Truth, asks for nothing material, but asks for Enlightenment and True Knowledge instead.
In the third line, the seeker is not asking for eternal life or immortality. The seeker is asking for Self Realization. The seeker is asking to be awakened to his Infinite, Timeless, Un-born and Eternal nature. The seeker is requesting to be awakened to his True Nature, to who he truly is, and that awakening to the eternal Self is the freedom from time and death which he is seeking.
If ever you were to meet the Genie in the bottle, I suggest you immediately chant this mantra for your 3 wishes .
