तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु

Uttana ekapada sirsasana


inspired by the motto of IIMB: Tejasvi navadhitamastu. This line, derived from the Shanti mantra ( peace invocation ) of Taittiriya Upanishad,

ॐ सह नाववतु।
सह नौ भुनक्तु।
सह वीर्यं करवावहै।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु
मा विद्विषावहै।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

which translates as

Let us together be protected and let us together be nourished by God’s blessings / Let us together join our mental forces in strength for the benefit of humanity /Let our efforts at learning be luminous and filled with joy, and endowed with the force of purpose/Let us never be poisoned with the seeds of hatred for anyone / Let there be peace and serenity in all the three universes.

Om Kranthi Om!!
