MANTRA HEALING

“MANTRA IS A GATEWAY TO ENLIGHTENMENT & LIBERATION”

A Mantra is an alphabet, word or a group of words, which when pronounced produce a sound vibration that is capable of bringing in spiritual transformation in a person.

Mantras were originally conceived in the VEDAS, the revered scriptures of Hinduism and later became an essential practice within Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. The sanskrit word MAN-TRA consists of the root MAN, which means ‘to think’ and the suffix TRA means ‘instrument’, therefore the literal meaning of  mantra is ‘instrument of thought’.
All elements and energies in the universe can be influenced and guided by mantras. Continuous practice of mantras purifies the consciousness and heals the KARMA in the same way as water extinguishes the fire.

By the repeated chanting of mantras one can attain one-pointedness or extreme focus on the chosen deity or principal idea of the mantra. The chanting of mantra pulls the Soul out of the worldly pursuits and unites the lower-self with the higher-self. Chanting attunes the practitioner to the Divine tune that brings harmony to the mind, body and soul/spirit.
With regular practice, the mantras begin to purify the practitioner, eliminate the concern (attachment), justification and gratification of the self and finally turn powerful emotions towards GOD, culminating in the realization of the self/God. This is an unparalleled benefit of mantra.

Chakras are powerful transformers of energy and the mantras are energy processing channels that assist in progression of the spirit from the gross to the sublime. The reverberations of the sound of the mantra can activate the Chakras and concentrate the spiritual forces within and eventually awaken the KUNDALINI (Spiritual Life Force) for eternal bliss.

A better understanding of the meaning of mantras before chanting increases the purity, surety and the speed of attainment of the goal. When a Mantra is chanted repeatedly in the proper style, a time comes when it acquires a self generating power that automatically protects the practitioner from the clutches of MAYA and spiritual awakening is experienced.

When this happens a link between the practitioner and the deity or the God related to the seed of the Mantra is established. This is due to the seed (bija) within the Mantra. The deity of the bija in the Mantra manifests before the practitioner and he is united with God. This is the real meaning of ‘yoga’, and the goal of Mantra is thus achieved.

Mantra Therapy is the most important of all therapies as it can be coupled with any other therapy or form of yoga for a catalytic action. A mantra can be internalized in the following forms:

1. Through speaking (Vaikhari japa)   
2. Through whispering (Upamshu japa)
3. Through thinking (Mansika japa)
4. Through inner repetitions (Ajapa)
5. Through writing (Likhita japa)   
 

There are several forms of Mantras:

1. Bhajan (spiritual songs)
2. Kirtan (repetition of God’s name in a song)
3. Prayer (a way of communicating with God)
4. Healing mantra (mantra that influences healing)
5. Guru mantra (initiation given by the master to the disciple)

Chanting of the mantras is usually accompanied by the counting of beads which are knitted in the form of a rosary. The rosary or mala is usually made up of 108 beads and a bigger bead symbolizing God or self realization is tied where the string of beads ends.  We should not cross this big bead and turn back to do more rounds of chanting if we want to stop the chain of birth and death. The rosary should be held at the level of heart and the beads should be moved between the thumb and the ring finger only.

The best time to chant the mantras is between 4 am to 6 am early morning, between 11.45 am to 12.15 pm in the afternoon and between 6 pm to 7 pm in the evening. This time is called BRAHM MUHURTA and spiritual forces at these timings are more active in the cosmos. One should sit with straight back on a cushion in Padmasana, Siddhasana or Sukhasana without touching the wall so that the power gained through chanting does not dissipate.

AUM or OM is regarded as the source of all mantras in Hinduism and thus is prefixed and suffixed to all Hindu prayers. Om  is considered to be the first sound of Universe. It is a manifestation of the whole creation: Beginning, Middle& End - Unconscious, Conscious& Super-Conscious - Creation Sustenance& Destruction - Brahma, Vishnu& Mahesh.
Some very common mantras, called Nama japa, are formed by taking a deity's name and chanting its name thus. There are several such combinations:

  • Aum Namah Shivaya.
  • Aum Namo Narayanaya.
  • Aum Shri Ganeshaya Namah.
  • Aum Kalikayai Namah.
  • Aum Sri Maha Kalikayai Namah.
  • Aum Hrim Chandikãyai Namah.
  • Aum Radha Krishnaya Namaha.
  • Aum Namo Venkateshaya.

The GAYATRI MANTRA, however ,is considered one of the most powerful of all Hindu mantras, invoking the universal Brahman as the principle of knowledge and the illumination of the  Sun God. If chanted with proper understanding of its meaning, this mantra alone is capable of providing Self / God realization thus liberating the person from the clutches of Maya/ Illusion.

Aum Bhūr Bhuva Svaha
Aum Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yo Nahah Prachodayat Aum

Though there are various others mantras devised for specific purpose, rituals and curing diseases, yet to sum up, mantra essentially is a tool that connects the soul to the Super-soul. It is gateway to enlightenment and liberation. However, its use for materialistic rewards like name, fame, money and power is ignorance personified and an exercise in futility.
