Dasasānti are the ten Sāntimantras from the four Vedas that are chanted before an Advaita class The Dasasānti is completely different from any other prayer that one has come across. All the ten mantras ask for a mind that can receive the Brahmavidyā. Even asking for a fit body is also to receive the Brahmavidyā. The different tone of the Dasasāntis makes all the difference in ‘anubandha-catushtaya’ – four-fold factors of eligibility for study of Vedanta. Indeed, the vishaya – subject-matter, prayojanam – result, and adhikāri – the student are diametrically different from seekers of dharma, artha, and kāma.
Each of the Sāntimantra is presented in Devanāgari with their source Veda and Upanishad, padaccheda, Sanskrit anvaya with gender, cases and number, and finally free translation in English, so that students can appreciate the meaning in Sanskrit.
