Mercury Retrograde Survival: A Mantra


Om Aim Bum Budhaya Namaha

Pronunciation: Om I’m Bum (like “put”, a soft “oo”) Bood-hah-yah Nahm-ah-ha

Translation: “Om and salutations to the presiding spirit of Mercury”.

Origin: Hindu

Practice: Repeat in cycles of 108 (mala)

Why it works:  Aim is the bija mantra of Saraswati – the Hindu Goddess of the arts, music, and knowledge of all kinds. She bestows the power of articulation, guiding and teaching, which are all functions of Mercury.

Notes:  The Bum and the seed sound of Aim give more power to the mantra.

Who is Saraswati?

According to Wikipedia:  Saraswati (Sanskritसरस्वती, Sarasvatī ?) is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts and science. She is the companion of Brahma, also revered as his Shakti (power). It was with her knowledge that Brahma created the universe. She is a part of the trinity of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva in the creation, maintenance and destruction of the Universe.[1] The Goddess is also revered by believers of the Jain religion of west and central India.[2]

Saraswati is known as a guardian deity in Buddhism who upholds the teachings of Gautama Buddha by offering protection and assistance to practitioners. She is known in Burmese as Thurathadi (သူရဿတီ, pronounced: [θùja̰ðədì] or [θùɹa̰ðədì]) or Tipitaka Medaw (တိပိဋကမယ်တော်, pronounced: [tḭpḭtəka̰ mɛ̀dɔ̀]), in Chinese as Biàncáitiān (辯才天), in Japanese as Benzaiten (弁才天/弁財天) and in Thai as Surasawadee (สุรัสวดี).

In the East Indian states of Bihar, West Bengal, and Odisha, Saraswati is considered to be a daughter of Durga along with her brothers Ganesha and Karthikeya.[3] In some Puranas (like Skanda Purana), she is the sister of Shiva (Shivaanujaa).”
