Free photos for bloggers: 9th instalment

In this sentimental, we offer a few graphics in Sanskrit. We find that many Indian bloggers display Sanskrit sayings or catch words to buttress their feelings about the society, life, environment etc. We hope, these small images will serve this purpose to some extent. Though some of them relate to Hindu religion, in their meanings all these seek good of the entire society and mankind.

Sayamev jayate: Meaning 'Truth alone triumphs', this quote from an Upnishad finds place in India's national emblem.
Asato ma satgamay / Tamaso ma jyotirgamay / Mrityormamritam gamay: This invocation translates something like this: Let us go from untruth to truth, from darkness to light and from death to immortality.
Om shantih: Let there be peace. This chant can be used in many contexts ranging from religious rites to social and emotional discourses. This was chanted by sages to invoke peace - peace in the heart, peace in the earth, peace among the constituents of matter, peace in the entire cosmos, eternal peace.
Om is the ultimate symbol of Hinduism and is also found in other Indian-origin faiths such as Jainism, Sikhism and Budhism. It represents the God in its non-ethereal form. Om often comes at the beginning of mantras.
Om bhurbhuvah swah / Tatsaviturvarenyam / Bhargo devasy dhimahi / Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat. This is Gayatri mantra, a chant in Rigveda - among the most sacred and primal Sanskrit scriptures. There are a number of interpretations of this mantra, and one of them is 'wishing the glory of Savitr god and seeking His blessings for giving potency to our prayers'.
