Given the name "Amazing Grace of Sanskrit" by the author of "Eat, Pray, Love," Elizabeth Gilbert, the mantra "Om Namah Shivaya" translates to "I bow to Shiva, the supreme deity of transformation who represents, the truest, highest self."
Gilbert translates the meaning to "I honor the divinity within myself" as a reminder that there is a divine energy in everyone and that each person should be treated as if they are divine.
It is said that regular practice of this mantra will bring you to the divine inner nature within all of us.
Om Mani Padme Hum mantra is thought to be a derivative of the Om Namah Shivaya mantra.
Both these mantras are said to generate positive energies within the body when chanted repeatedly.
