Learning Support for Chanting the Śānti Pataḥ – Saha Nāvavatu

Desikachar and Paul Chanting in 1999

Traditionally textual study or chanting practice was preceded and ended with a Śānti Pataḥ or invocatory passage to help forge a link between the chanters, what is chanted and its purport, as well as setting a context for textual study.

This chant is where the teacher and the pupil chant together asking for harmonious co-operation within a context of keen and vigorous exploration of what is and especially what isn’t the self and the non-self. A topic fraught with potential resistances and self-illusion.

saha nāvavatu |
Together may we be protected

saha nau bhunaktu |
Together may we enjoy our studies

saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai |
Together may we work vigorously

tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
Let our study together be fiery (to illuminate) and
(because of this) may we not hate (each other).

om śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||
