Hindu mantras to open New Mexico Houses

India Post News Service

CHICAGO: Both New Mexico Senate and House of Representatives in Santa Fe will open their February 7 sessions with Hindu mantras, containing verses from world’s oldest existing scripture.

Rajan Zed, President of Universal Society of Hinduism, will deliver the invocation from ancient Sanskrit scriptures before the Senate and House. After Sanskrit delivery, he then will read the English interpretation of the prayer. Sanskrit is considered a sacred language in Hinduism and root language of Indo-European languages.

Reciting from Brahadaranyakopanishad, Rajan plans saying “Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya, Mrtyormamrtamgamaya.” This is interpreted as “Lead us from the unreal to the real, from darkness to light, and from death to immortality.” Reading from Bhagavad-Gita, he proposes to urge Senators and Representatives to keep the welfare of others always in mind.

Michelle Lujan Grisham is the Governor of New Mexico, whose tagline is “The Land of Enchantment”. San Miguel Chapel in capital Santa Fe, whose history goes back to 1610, is claimed to be the oldest church in USA. With Lieutenant Governor Howie Morales as the President, its Senate has 41 senators; while its House of Representatives has 70 representatives and Brian Egolf is the Speaker.
