Various Mantras

Mantra is a religious or mystical syllable or poem,        typically from the Sanskrit language. Mantras are primarily used as        spiritual conduits, words or vibrations that inculcate concentration in        the devotee. Mantras are also integrated in religious rituals to remove        obstacles, avoid danger, reduce foes, or accumulate wealth. Mantras got        their origin from the Vedas of India.

Mantra – The Word
         The word “Mantra” has been derived from Sanskrit. Mantra        contains two words – “man” which means “to think”        (also in manas “mind”) and suffix “tra” which means “tool”,        hence a literal translation would be “instrument of thought”.        A mantra is a powerful word or phrase that may or may not have meaning        in the same way as a sentence.

What is Mantra?
         Mantras are single or strung together syllables. It is important to        pronounce the mantra properly with an understanding of its meaning.        Improper pronunciation of Mantra can inflict losses. So, one should be        careful while chanting mantra.

         Mantras are energy-based sounds. The Indian metaphysical tradition        explains that the body is composed of the combination of five elements        and the first of them is sound. Studies in sound symbolism suggest that        vocal sounds have meaning whether we are aware of it or not. And        certainly there can be multiple layers of symbolism associated with each        sound. So even, if we do not understand them, mantras are not        meaningless; no vocal utterance is entirely without meaning.

         One’s subconscious mind can find its solution through meditation and        recitation of mantras. A mantra, when repeated constantly during        meditation, first loudly and then through silent and mental chanting,        changes the consciousness.

The Basic Mantra – Aum
         In Hindu Mythology, the most basic mantra is Aum, which is known as the        “pranava mantra”, the source of all mantras. Aum is regarded        to be the most fundamental and powerful mantra. Aum represents the first        manifestation of Brahman, the Supreme reality. Thus, Aum is prefixed and        suffixed to all Hindu prayers.

         Verses (Sloka) from holy Hindu texts like the Vedas, Upanishads,        Bhagavad-Gita, Mahabharata , Ramayana, Durga Saptashati or Chandi are        considered powerful enough to be repeated to great effect, and therefore        have attained the status of a mantra. As per the Vedic practices, most        ancient techniques and classical Hinduism, mantra is symbolized as a        requisite for spiritual advancement and high attainment.
