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 .

Asato Ma Sadgamaya Mantra English Translation

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

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 .

    Asatoma masadgamaye
    Tamasoma Jyothirgamaye
    Mruthyoma amritamgamaye
    ASAT (lie) to sat (truth)
    World around us mostly tells us the lie. We live according to the approval or applause of society. We are defined by what the world thinks about us. Often we walk with a face mask; we want to look good no matter how bad our condition may be. We are most often influenced by Ads, TV, media, religion, internet etc. World knows how to fool us. We believe in lies told by the world, society and the media and we are defined by the world.
    Bhagwad Gita “It is better to live your own way imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” 
    Romans 12.2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    A writer explained: Each of us is unique individual. One cannot fake it by pretending to be somebody else, no matter how grand, rich or clever he or she is. Our life might be imperfect, or even tragic, but to share that with others is still better than pretence, and putting up a false front for the sake of impressing people
    Tamas (Darkness) to Jyothi (Light)
    Tthe darkness is deeply rooted in the lies. Often we hide in the darkness of lie, not knowing ourselves. We stay in the state of no self awareness and ignorance. We like our comfort zones becasue of fear and lack of freedom. All we need is a spark of light of love to come out of that darkness. We pray for that light to liberate us.
    Mruthyu (Death) to Amrit (Immortality)
    No one can avoid physical death. Mortality is 100 % . The prayer is not about living for ever. In a spiritual level we are more than bodies, we are spirit, we are love, we are consciousness… things those really define what we are. Without love we may as well be dead. The prayer says to bring us from death, a life without love to amrit, an enduring love for ever.

    Hello Mr Mehta,
    Firstly thanks for this website. I have sent links to friends. In this edition there is a small clarification.
    Asato Ma Sadgamaya Mantra in Sanskrit
    Asato Ma Sadgayama
    Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya
    Mrytor Ma Amritamgamaya
    I studied in a school where every morning we said this as part of the prayers. However there was an additional line
    Vidyo Ma Tamgamaya
    Om shanti shanti shanti.

    Indian Vedic contribution is a reservoir of Vibrant Information and
    Harmonious Creativity. May the womb of nature embrace all with
    tranquil blessings from this day forward. Let this attract one’s
    attention affecting them positively. It is a Sanctuary of the Self a
    Creative Venue which serves as an Enduring Expression of Lightness,
    where a peaceful Atmosphere with Sunlight Flows and serene atmosphere

    In the storm of life we struggle through myriads of stimuli of
    pressure, stress, and multi problems that seek for a solution and
    answer. We are so suppressed by the routine of this every life style
    that most of us seem helpless. However, if we look closely to ancient
    techniques we shall discover the magnificent way to understand and
    realize the ones around us and mostly ourselves. If only we could stop
    for a moment and allow this to happen. May all beings be happy (Loka
    Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu)
    The ancient Hindu philosophy of keeping mind and body for the well
    being has entered the managerial, medical and judicial domain of the
    world. Today it has found its place as an alternative to the theory of
    modern management and also as a means to bring back the right path of
    peace and prosperity for the human beings. Let me bow to Indian
    Maharishi Veda Vysa with folded hands, who helped in removing the
    impurities of the mind through his writings on Vedas, impurities of
    speech through his writings on puranas, and impurities of body through
    his writings on other sacred texts.

    Thanks for posting this Anmol,

    No wonder we were made to start our school prayer with this lines and were made to end it with “Tvame mata” prayer.

    I have a question for you. I have a tendency to create anxiety and worry in my life as I procrastinate and am somewhat lazy. You can say that I live in dream world, and taking the required actions is something that I have to really force myself with. Even with these attributes, I have achieved quite a bit of success but now they are more in my way than ever. Do you think starting with the excercize set targeting core muscle group (or 3rd chakra) would help?

    Also, are there any breathing techniques that can help to calm myself during one of these anxiety periods, especially if I have eaten not more than couple of hours before? :)

    Looking forward to your advice.
    Thanks you.
