I am searching for a song I heard in yoga class that had the chant "lokah samastha sukhino bhavantu" and can't find it anywhere. Any ideas?

It wouldn't be Hindi, but Sanskrit. Googling turns up this as a possibility.

I would, except he up and moved away last friday "on a whim." But thanks anyways. . .

Zadcat: that is the right chant, but the singer was female.

Oh, a specific recording. There are a ton of yoga tapes and CDs out there. If you were at a yoga centre connected to a particular tradition they may very well sell the recording you want. If not, your teacher simply picked something he liked and you're adrift in a sea of new age titles.

I underwent a brief training to become ordained as a Hindu priest about a dozen years ago (long story), and this chant was part of the puja ceremony that I learned. The translation that I was given was "may the beings of all three worlds be happy", and I was led to believe that it was a common part of the ritual, widely practiced.

(I later learned that my teacher may not have been completely, uh, legitimate, so I may very well be totally wrong.)

Could it be the one on this page ? (although it's only on cassette) I have ordered things from them in the past, but not recently.
