The Mantra for Universal-Wellness is widely used by way of ‘Closing Ode’ at the end of modern day Yoga sessions across the world. However, the Mantra doesn’t need to necessarily come at the end. At AZIMVTH Ashram, early in the morning, residents can hear this Mantra being chanted on loud-speakers at a neighbouring community of renunciates. The morning sessions at AZIMVTH also feature this Mantra towards the end. At Har-ki-Paide (Stairs-of-God), the most auspicious part of the Ganges, the much celebrated evening prayers feature this Mantra.
