About Mantra

Posted on: October 23, 2008



“A mantra is a combination of certain sounds which is sounded by the Siddha of The mantra so as to manifest in the physical world the desired energy.The Vedic masters studied in depth the dimension of sound and its effects on beings.They experimented with the various types of sounds and their effects and gave us mantras for nearly everything, which a being could possibly desire.Every sound in the Mantra should be shudh( clearly audible). The crests and troughs in the Mantra are to be strictly adhered to.And last but not the least the mantra should be chanted with reverence.

Sounds programmed as matras have a very powerful effect on the body as well as the environment. Mantras, when chanted in the prescribed manner, create desired effect. As they are based on particular sound patterns, each mantra is a programme set for a particular purpose, which manifests as that specific force.

It becomes very important to chant mantras in the prescribed way with the right sound modulations, for as told earlier each sound has a specific corresponding energy to it and if chanted in a wrong way, just the opposite effect might manifest.

It is said that the whole creation started with the chant of OM mantra because it was chanted in the right way. One can very well imagine what would have happened to the creation if the OM chanted would have background music to it.It would have completely changed the course of creation.. A mantra if chanted properly has an instant positive effect on the envoirnment and if the same chant is ashudh then the effect can be disastrous.

A mantra when broadcasted in mass media resonates in millions of homes. One can well imagine the disastrous effect it can have when chanted incorrectly. Yogi Aswini in one of his articles, has attributed this as one of the causes for the chaotic state in every household today.”

Gayatri Mantra
As per Hindu scriptures, Devi Gayatri is believed to be the Mother of the Vedas. According to legend, the Lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva worship her as their Mother.

The Gayatri Mantra is the prescribed daily mantra for all Hindus and is considered to be the remover of all sins and the bestower of all desired things. It is also part of the Sandhya Vandana. The Gayatri Mantra is believed to inspire wisdom.

The Mantra:
“Om Bhuh Bhuvah Svah Tat Saviturvarenyam
Bhargodevasya Dhimahi Dhiyoyonah Prachodayat”

Meaning of the mantra:

We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal. I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray that the divine light illumine our minds.

Gayatri Mantra with Beej Mantra
According to Hindu beliefs, there are fourteen worlds. Bhu, Bhuvah, Svaa, Mahaa, Janah, Tapah, Satyam are the seven Higher worlds and Atata, Kutala, Vitala, Mahatala, Rasatala, Bhutala and Patala are the seven Lower worlds. Seekers of the Higher worlds recite this mantra.

The Mantra:
“Om Bhu, Om Bhuvah, Om Svah, Om Mahaa, Om Janah,
Om Tapah, Om Satyaa, Om Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo
Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat
Om Apo Jyotih Raso-mritam Brahmaa Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah Om”

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra
This mantra of Lord Shiva is the most powerful and is commonly recited for curing all types of illnesses and to avoid misfortunes and untimely death. It can be recited at any time. This is the greatest work of Maharishi Vashishtha. Also known as the Moksha mantra of Lord Shiva, Maha Mritunjay evokes the Shiva within and removes the fear of death, liberating us from the cycle of death & rebirth.

The Mantra:
“OM Trayambakam Yaja Mahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam
Urvarukamivabandhanan Mrityormukshiya – Amamratat OM”

Meaning of the mantra:
We worship the Lord of the three lokas, the 3 gunas, the 3 mandalas, the 3 tattvas and the tridevas. Just as the fragrance in a flower is supreme, similarly, Lord Shiva in this entire creation is supreme. He is the one who provides nourishment to this entire creation. He is responsible both for our bondages and liberation. We pray to Lord Shiva that just as a cucumber plant holds its fruit in its tendrils and lets it go when it ripens. Similarly, Lord Shiva too frees us from our present form, liberating us from our present afflictions.

Ganesh Mantra
Lord Ganesha is one of the most prominent deities in Hinduism. Ganesha’s name is always invoked before any other God’s name in any prayer service. Legend has it that Lord Ganesha received this distinction as a blessing from his parents, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Lord Ganesha is designated as the chief (-eesha) of all of Lord Shiva’s ganas (servers) – hence his name, Ganesha.

The Mantra:
“Om Sri Vakratunda Mahaakaaya Suryakotee Sama Prabha
Nirvighnam kuru mey Deva Sarva kaaryeshu Sarvadaa
Om Sri Ganeshaya Namah Om”

Meaning of the mantra:
O Lord Ganesha of large body, curved trunk, with the brilliance of a million suns, please make all my work free of obstacles, always.

“Gam Ganapatye Namah”

“Aum Kshipra Prasadaya Namah”

Kshipra means immediate. This mantra is chanted to impede a threat or negative energy coming in one’s way. This mantra chanted with devotion purifies one’s aura.

“Aum Ganadhyakshaya Namah”
This mantra is chanted for group healing, i.e. when a group of people or country etc requires group healing, chanting this mantra facilitates an effective healing.

“Aum Vighna Nashanaya Namah”
This mantra invokes the Lord Ganesha to remove hindrances in life. By meditating on this mantra, all obstacles and blocked energy in the physical and cosmological bodies are set free.

“Aum Kapilaya Namah”
When a healer wishes to create colours around himself and around others, soak the person seeking healing with that colour and heal, this mantra aids the process. Whatever healing the healer wishes for others is effected with this mantra.

This is Lord Ganesha’s mula mantra and is also known as his “beej” Mantra. This mantra is used for Yoga Sadhana wherein one prays to Lord Ganesha and merges with the supreme knowledge and peace. This is a mantra from Ganapati Upanishad.

“Aum Shri Ganeshaya Namah”
It literally translates into “Praise to Lord Ganesha”. It is chanted to get Ganesha’s blessings for an auspicious beginning in any sphere and also in the praise of the Lord.
