Video of the Greatest Devotional Vedic Mantra (Prayer)

Summary: My lovely wife, Trupti, sings my favorite devotional mantra, Tvameva Mata in both Sanskrit and English for you.  This mantra is perhaps the greatest devotional and gratitude mantra coming from the ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas.  Enjoy the videos.

For as long as I can remember I have loved the following devotional and gratitude Mantra.  It is called Tvameva Mata and ever since I first heard it, it has been a part of my daily prayers.  In my opinion, it is one of the greatest devotional mantras and still today, whenever I hear it sung with love, it gives me the chills.

The origins of Tvameva Mata lie in the ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas, and it is frequently chanted at the end of Hindu prayers (havan).  This mantra essentially, praises the Lord as being everything.  It is a beautiful prayer and for those looking to incorporate gratitude and devotion into their heart and lives, you may wish to try this mantra for yourself.

Here is the original Sanskrit version of this mantra, below that I have provided the English translation.

Greatest Devotional

Sanskrit Version of Tvameva Mata: 

Tvameva mata cha pita tvameva,
Tvameva badhu scja sakha tvameva.
Tvameva vidya dravinam tvameva,
Tvameva sarvam mama deva devah.

English Translation of Tvameva Mata:

You are the mother, you are the father,
You are the family, you are the friend.
You are all wisdom, you are all treasure,
You are my everything, My Lord My Lord.

Below are 2 videos of Tvameva Mata mantra being sung, one in the original Sanskrit and one in English.  Don’t fear, I am not singing it :-P.  In fact, you are all in for a special treat, as I managed to wrestle my lovely and talented wife away from our two little boys, just long enough for her to sing this amazing mantra for you all.

I hope you all enjoy this mantra as much as I do.

    Hi Avni,

    My two little boys are also being taught this prayer. The fact that it is daddy’s favorite means they have little choice :-D… actually they love putting on a show for us.

    Will certainly be working on getting Trupti to do more mantras for us in ’09.

    Hi Anmol…

    I m soo touched to find this prayer here! As a child a remember reciting with my parents, not that i m too old now:D. But yes, unfortunately the fast pace of my life, took me away from this prayer. And now, as I hear it…i feel connected to my roots again. Thanks again:)and please tell Trupti, She has a very warm voice:).we’d like to hear more of her as well…
    Will make sure, tomorrow first thing is to teach my daughers.. ‘Twamev Maata…’.

    Dear Vikram,

    Thank you for your kind words, which are so very encouraging and inspiring.

    You are spot on with regard to both, your view on Hinduism and specially with regard to this Mantra. It is absolutely a prayer of surrender, and to this day is my favorite mantra :-D.

    I certainly plan on providing more mantras and videos of them and be on the lookout for these in the very near future.

    All Good Wishes,

    dear Anmol, you r doing really wonderful job of spreading the indian treasure of real knowledge throughout the world via your website!!

    really wonderful and quite helpful to all who go through your site once, get to understand the mostly hidden aspects/ secrets of hinduism [ which is not a religion or cult, instead it is a constantly flowing stream of good thoughts expressed by rishis, maharishis and saints in last thousands of years] in its real sense.. let me say nobody goes back empty handed and empty minded!!

    carry on Anmol!!

    one request, pls. provide such good ancient mantras on your site. in fact, the prayer you have shown here is the real prayer of total surrender [of your ego] to Lord Almighty – the Creator, Sustainer and Saviour of multi millions of universes and the beauty is that it can be done by the followers of other religions also being most beneficial prayer if done with full faith in the heart keeping the image of jesus, mohammed, buddha or krishna, whatever religion or cult you believe in, with guaranteed results.

    may God bless you always,

    During the time period between studying, I was able to relax my thoughts, just by knowing that God is there for me (a teenager’s reaction to listening to this devotional Mantra). We watched this video together as a family and have enjoyed it a lot. It is sung with tons of devotion and love.
