A Navajo Chant for Happiness

When you are nervous, disoriented, or emotionally fragile, chanting or reciting a mantra inspiringly can change the state of your mind completely, by transforming its energy and atmosphere.
–Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan Lama

This powerful chant traditionally used by the Dine (Navajo) people can bring you a calm sense of wellbeing and peace. The words bring to mind a spacious landscape, and the gifts of the Mother Earth to her children.

When we are in balance with the spirit of our mother planet–when we remind ourselves of our connection to her–we can truly walk in happiness. Read this beautiful chant here:

Happily may I walk.
Happily, with abundant dark clouds, may I walk.
Happily, with abundant showers, may I walk.
Happily, with abundant plants, may I walk.
Happily, on a trail of pollen, may I walk.
Happily may I walk.
Being as it used to be long ago, may I walk.
