The Midwives Song (Gayatri Mantra)

My midwive Ibu Robin Lim sang a Gayatri mantra as a joyous welcome to our newborn daughter Koko in the birth center Bumi Sehat (Bali). This is a very old and powerful mantra in the Hindu tradition. Performed here by Elena Skoko in the sequence of 8.

"Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt"
