I honestly feel blessed to hear these sound vibrations, here is a video to the Vedic Hymn in Sanskrit – Mantra Pushpam. It is one of my favourites, for its profundity. This Universal Vedic hymn is traditionally chanted at many different ritual ceremonies but I have found the vibrations and the feeling from the chanting of it to be useful at any time. It is found in the Taittiriya Aranyakam

Here is an english translation produced by P.R.Ramachander, The video has the transliteration to make it easy to follow and chant along. I literally get a chill down my spine when I listen to and recite this.

He becomes the possessor of flowers, children and cattle.

Becomes established in himself,
