American pop icon Lady Gaga recently sent people into a frenzy with a tweet that had just 4 words. Ditching English, the language in which she generally posts, the star shared a message written in Sanskrit.

“Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu,” Lady Gaga tweeted on October 20. The mantra captures the essence of the feelings of love and happiness towards the world, reports IANS. When translated, in simple words, it means “May all beings everywhere be free and happy.”

An in-depth translation of the mantra reads – “May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”

Since being posted, the post went all sorts of viral. Till now, it has more than 1.2 lakh likes and close to 33,000 retweets. People from all over the world are commenting on the tweet.

While some asked the meaning of the mantra, there were a few who reacted in a hilarious manner.

Back in 2011, during her tour to India the Born This Way star expressed that she sought inspiration from Indian women, reports ANI.
