Power & Chanting of Mantras

In my previous article, I wrote about the Mantras and in this article, I am going to tell about the power of mantras. As noted earlier, I am always in search of the facts about the ancient knowledge of Hindu Religion, so whenever I found any new definition or any kind of other facts from any place, I will publish them. So, please do not go on the repetition of the Titles and see only the facts published under the articles. There will always be the new facts about one. So, in this series, now I am lying down the facts about the Power of Mantra and Chanting of mantra, which are searched from internet. After that with the spiritual help of my Gurudev, little-little knowledge from the scriptures will also be published.

Power of Mantra

Mantras are powerful sounds and when chanted with devotion produce enormous effects. Mantras are well-off in their meanings and their meaning can be meditated while chanting. As the mind concentrates more and more on mantra and its meaning, it conditions the mind and takes up to the higher states and forms the path to salvation - the eternal bliss. Read on to know about the significance of mantra…


The Vedas are full of mantras, therefore, have been kept for ages in their raw form to use in the different practices like patha, karma, jata, gana, patas. It has been done to ensure that the chanter clearly interprets the correct letters and sound for each letter (svara). People are advised to chant the mantras only when they know the correct pronunciation of it. That is how mantras are kept against deterioration with time.


Mantras Are Energy-Based Sounds

Sound is the foremost content of the creation. Mantras are divine sounds. Saying any word produces an actual physical vibration. Over time, if we know what the effect of that vibration is, then the word may come to have meaning associated with the effect of saying that vibration or word. Mantras appear really powerful when this sound effect reaches the mind and the surroundings.


Mantras Create Thought-Energy Waves

Mantra, when chanted sincerely produces a state where the organism vibrates at the rate completely in tune with the energy and spiritual state, represented by and contained within the mantra.


Mantra Have Fire-Like Energy

Mantras have fire like energy which can bring a positive and beneficial result, or it can produce an energy meltdown when misused or practiced without some guidance. There are certain mantra formulas which are so exact, so specific and so powerful that they must be learned and practiced under careful supervision by a qualified guru.


Mantras Eventually Quiet the Mind

At a deep level, subconscious mind is a collective consciousness of all the forms of primitive consciousnesses which exist throughout the physical and subtle bodies. Sincere use of mantra can excavate into subconscious crystallized thoughts stored in the organs and glands and transform these bodily parts into repositories of peace.


A mantra is a powerful word or phrase that may or may not have meaning in the same way as a sentence. Mantras can only be experienced, there is no proper term to define them and phrase them. That is why; they get passed from generation to generation.

Chanting of Mantra

Chanting of mantra was a concept of the Vedic saints that includes mantras as one of the main forms of worship, whose end is seen as salvation. Basically, Mantra Jaap means repeating the mantra. Reciting Mantra has become an established feature of the Hindu practices. Mantra Japa involves repetition of mantra again and again, usually 108 times completes one cycle. Due to this, the rosary (mala) used for mantra jaap has 108 beads in it.


It is believed that through mantra jaap, the devotee attains concentration and focus on the chosen deity or the main idea of the mantra. One can attain peace of mind quickly by chanting mantra. With prolong and constant practice, the inherent power of the Mantra (Mantra-Shakti) will be awakened, which will fill your very existence with the Divinity of the Mantra.


Practical Aids to Japa

  • Select any Mantra and repeat it from 108 to 1,080 times daily (one to ten malas).
  • Take a bath or wash your hands, feet, face and mouth before sitting for Japa in the morning.
  • Sit facing east or north during the practice. This enhances the effectiveness of the Jaap.
  • Sit on a rug to conserve body-electricity. Sit in a separate meditation room or in any suitable place, such as a temple, on a river bank or under a banyan or peepul tree.
  • Maintain a steady pose. You can sit in Padmasana, Siddhasana or Sukhasana. Resolve to complete a certain minimum number of malas before leaving your seat.
  • Use a rosary of 108 beads. Do not allow the rosary to hang below the navel. The rosary (mala) must not be visible to you or to others, so cover it properly. Use the middle finger and the thumb of the right to roll the beads. The use of the index finger is not allowed. Do not cross the meru (main bead) while rolling the beads.
  • Do mental Jaap for sometime without a rosary or mala. When the mind wanders, do the Japa aloud, or whisper the Mantra for some time and come back to mental Japa again as soon as possible.
  • Do not chant mantra in haste. Do it slowly with feeling, concentration of mind and devotion.
  • Try to associate the chant with the rhythm of the breath and meditate in the form of your Deity. Keep a picture or idol of the Deity in front of you. Think of the meaning of the Mantra while repeating it.
  • Observe silence and avoid distractions, calls and engagements. It is important not to leave the place at once after the Japa is over and mix with everyone or get into worldly activity. This keeps the spiritual vibrations intact.

One can leave the place after a dedicated prostration, with a feeling that everything belongs to that almighty. The Puja, Sadhana, Meditation and Jaap etc, any kind of prayers offered to the Almighty must be done with a sincere heart. The Supreme Being answers all the questions and doubts of the devotee, sooner or later. One must understand that the ultimate purpose of life is the realization of divine.

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.

Meditation

Meditation is an intensely personal and spiritual experience. The desired purpose of each meditation technique is to channel our awareness into a more positive direction by totally transforming one's state of mind. To meditate is to turn inwards, to concentrate on the inner self. The entire process of meditation usually entails the three stages of concentration (dharana), meditation (dhyana) and enlightenment or absorption (samadhi). The individual preparing to meditate usually starts off by harnessing his awareness, such as focussing his mind onto a certain object. Once attention gets engaged, concentration turns into meditation or dhyana. And through continuous meditation, the meditator merges with the object of concentration, which might either be the present moment or the Divine Entity. In some branches of Indian philosopohy, direct perception from the inner self (mana) together with perception that is filtered through the five senses (pancha indriya) form a part of their valid epistemology (pratyaksha jnana). And this self-realization or self-awareness (as popularized by Paramahansa Yogananda), is nothing but the knowledge of the "pure being"—the Self. Humanity is increasingly turning towards various meditative techniques in order to cope with the increasing stress of modern-day lifestyles. Unable to locate stability in the outside world, people have directed their gaze inwards in a bid to attain peace of mind. Modern psychotherapists have begun to discover various therapeutic benefits of meditation practices. The state of relaxation and the altered state of consciousness—both induced by meditation—are especially effective in psychotherapy. But more than anything else, meditation is being used as a personal growth device these days—for inculcating a more positive attitude towards life at large. Meditation is not necessarily a religious practice, but because of its spiritual element it forms an integral part of most religions. And even though the basic objective of most meditation styles remain the same and are performed in a state of inner and outer stillness, they all vary according to the specific religious framework within which they are placed. Preparation, posture, length of period of meditation, particular verbal or visual elements—all contribute to the various forms of meditation. Some of the more popular methods are, Transcendental Meditation, yoga nidra, vipassana and mindfulness meditation.

I searched a lot on Internet and found a very nice 3-d animated clip about meditation, enjoy it :

Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami Ji

Happy Birth day to Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji (Pujya Gurudev)!

With your grace I am trying to write about you and BSLND. I have taken this information from various places, books, articles etc.

Bhagwan Shri Lakshmi Narayan Dham (BSLND) is a Charitable Organisation of India, USA, Canada and Uk and has recently opened a place for its first USA dham (Centre) at Maryland, in Canada, in USA. In India there are a number of centres in different states like Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhan, Uttarpradesh, Gujrat, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh etc. The mission of Bhagwan Shri Lakshmi Narayan Dham is to help mankind live a better and stress-free life by connecting them with GOD.

Bhagwan Shri Lakshmi Narayan Dham has already attained a lot of fame and respect in the heart of millions of people around the world. This is based on the fact that a divine science is manifested in all the activities arranged by this institute through which the real character of public welfare is revealed. Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji gives astonishing and extremely effective divine grace to the sorrows and other problems of millions of people in Prabhu Kripa Dukh Niwaran Samagams. So far there have been numerous Samagams arranged in India and abroad.

In these Samagams Param Pujya Gurudev Ji delivers Cosmic Grace for physical, mental, financial, family and psychological problems of people by giving them solution based on all religions of the world. This divine cosmic grace is based on divine path from the holy books of different religions of the world. According to Brahmrishi Kumar Swami ji, “these secret and divine mantras are hidden in the holy books of all religions. These are present in other religions as well but the most important thing about these secret Mantras is that these are hidden in the holy books in several pieces and it is impossible to find them through ordinary eyes.” Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji has become one of the great leaders of the world by giving the divine secrets to 27 Crore (270 Million) people in different countries of the world. The scientists, philosophers, meditators and Saints of the world are surprised to know the effect of these divine secrets.

Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji believes that life of the people will not be peaceful just by religious talks. In the presently day, science is based on truth and evidence. Modern day saints only preach about faith, devotion, trust and sacrifices. Unless they get evidence based solutions there will not be the welfare of the people. Arjun could not understand the words of Lord Krishna as long as he only preached him. But when Lord Krishna showed him his gigantic real form only then he could understand him. Evidence based message Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji is that there will not be love and devotion for God unless one is free from all the physical, mental and financial problems. He says, “How can a person or someone in his/her family will pray to God if they are suffering from diseases or have any mental problem or debt?” Param Pujya Brahmrishi Kumar Swami ji has been uncovering such divine secrets, which have changed the life of millions of people. Numerous people having shortage of money, loss in business, difficulty in studies, suffering from pain, diseases, problems and celestial faults have got new life after getting these secrets.

When modern science and equipments could not cure people suffering from deadly diseases then those people were not only fully cured from these diseases by divine secrets but those who were about to commit suicide were also fully benefitted.

During his spiritual journey Guruji has been with well known master like J. Krishna Murti, Osho, Vimala Thakar, Maa Anandmayee, Shri Onkar Nath Thakur, Taat Wale Baba ji etc. He believes whatever he has got is only with the blessings of God. He has got such a special knowledge from God’s grace that either by looking at a person, or his photo or listening to one’s voice, he can tell everything about the diseases and all other problems so easily like he has been watching his past, present or future as a movie. He says that this is the science of God which he attained by meditation of number of years and blessings of God.

Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami Ji was born on January 22, 1954 at Shree Karanpur in Rajasthan in a religious farmer family. It is because of God’s unique grace that only at the age of 12 he studied the holy books of all the religions and during this time the holy book ‘Maykhana’ was written by him which uncovers extremely hidden spiritual secrets and soofi thinking. Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji has unparalleled knowledge about the secrets of Ayurveda. At one time he was respected as the best doctor of the world. He has been personal doctors of the Presidents, Prime Ministers, several central Ministers and Ambassadors of different countries and Chief Ministers of several States of India.
