Yogakṣema (योगक्षेम) refers to “everything which is desired”, according to the Saṅkarṣaṇa Samhitā (verse 8.5-8).—Accordingly, the Garuḍamantra clears all the doubts of the person who chants it and protects him irrespective of his desire. It always bestows peace, prosperity and wellness on its aspirant voluntarily just like a mother, and showers strength like a father.
