down since ancient times by religious seers who had attained
self-realization by chanting them, mantras are words or
syllables in Sanskrit which when repeated in meditation helps
you transcend into a higher state of consciousness. As sound
energies that have always existed the universe, they cannot be
created or destroyed and command the power to heal you
physically & spiritually. At the very basic level mantras
help you to concentrate in meditation. And once you enter its
auspicious circle, the mind instantly gets focussed and you discover
a new realm of peace and tranquility.
original of all mantras, Om, is the root of all sounds,
thus letters and therefore of all language and thought. The
"O" is generated deep within the body, from inside the
navel, and slowly brought upward joining with the "m"
which then resonates through the entire head. Chanting Om
in a whisper correctly for twenty minutes relaxes every atom in
of every cell of your body.
mala (garland of Sandal or Rudraksha)
is often used in accompaniment. It has one hundred and eight
beads plus the larger `meru' beads. Holding it in
the right hand, start at the meru and roll the
beads along one by one between your thumb and third fingers
while repeating your mantra. When you reach the meru,
roll the mala in the opposite direction. Do not
cross over the meru bead.
