Published

Hanuman Mantra Practice Image

Hanuman is the Monkey God that symbolizes powerful energy and incredible strength. Hanuman mantra chanting is a powerful tool you can use to gain physical strength, stamina, and devotion. In addition, the Hanuman mantra helps to get rid of the negative influence of Saturn and Mars on your life, thus, saving you from serious problems and troubles, and removes obstacles in your way.

Hanuman – the Personification of the Subordinate Mind

In Hindu symbolism, a monkey represents the human mind, which is constantly in anxiety. Our mind is exactly what we have to achieve total control over. We cannot control the world around us, but we can control our mind. The very important thing we should always remember is that we should accept what we cannot change and wisely and consciously choose our reactions to any events in our life.

According to the Hindu point of view, there is no objective world; the whole manifested world is a subjective phenomenon created by our own self. We, as humans, have the unique ability to control our mind. In other words, we are able to change the way we perceive life. By changing our perceptions of life, we have the power to change the world we live in, the reality we choose for ourselves.

Hanuman mantra practice helps us to gain control of the mind and turn the victim (that we used to be) into a hero (that who we really are inside).

He is a symbol of the perfect mind, embodying the high potential of great opportunities.

The Story of Hanuman Birth

Hanuman was born to Anjana and Kesari. He is also called the son of the deity Vayu (Wind God) due to the legends associated with Vayu’s role in Hanuman’s birth.

When Anjana was worshiping Shiva, the King Dasharatha of Ayodhya was also performing the ritual of Putrakama yagna in order to have children. As a result, he received some sacred pudding (payasam) to be shared by his three wives which led to the births of Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata, and Shatrughna. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding and dropped it while flying over the forest where Anjana was engaged in worship. Vayu (Wind God) delivered the falling pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. Hanuman was born to her as a result.

According to Vedic legends, Hanuman was born in the Kingdom of Kishkindha.

Hanuman – One of the Main Characters of the Epic Poem “Ramayana”

Hanuman Mantra Image

Hanuman came to earth at the same time as Rama, the great ruler of the Solar Dynasty, who ruled for 11,000 years. The time of his reign is referred to as “Rama Rajya” – the Golden age. He strengthened the foundations of Dharma on Earth. During that time, righteousness, virtue, and piety among our planet were the norm. His reign was not tainted by suffering, grief, humiliation, and injustice. Each person was the personification of the brightest qualities. No one thought anything bad. There was absolute compliance with the principles of “Yama and Niyama” known to us as quite difficult to fulfill in our period of Kali-Yuga.

Ramayana tells us about a highly developed civilization that once existed on our planet. Rama was incarnated on Earth in order to become a model of ideal behavior for his people, to show by his example what qualities everyone should have. He came to Earth in order to relieve people from suffering and to give happiness, for he who has power, bears great responsibility for his people.

Also, Rama’s mission was to highlight to humanity in the example of the demon Ravana – his antipode – all the vices that he possessed, whether lust, anger, or greed, and show all their meaninglessness and decay, as well as what they lead to. Ravana was to become the personification of those qualities that Rama’s Light had to destroy. The confrontation of Rama and Ravana led to the victory of the forces of Light, which is the evidence of the inevitable outcome of the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Many Gods also were embodied in this time on Earth. Hanuman was one of them.

Hanuman Chalisa

Hanuman Chalisa is a poem praising Hanuman. It was written by the Indian medieval poet, sage and philosopher Goswami Tulsidas.

Many people read Hanuman Chalisa as a daily mantra several times a day. It is an analog of Puranic protective hymns and allows to harmonize the state of consciousness and balance the energy.

It is believed that anyone who sings Hanuman Chalisa 100 times daily with sincerity gets freedom from the shackles of the material world and reach the highest realms of the spiritual Kingdom. Those who chant the Hanuman Chalisa 40 times daily will get freedom from all financial and other material difficulties.

Hanuman Chalisa Translation:

After cleansing the mirror of my mind with the pollen dust of holy Guru’s Lotus feet. I Profess the pure, untainted glory of Shri Raghuvar which bestows the four-fold fruits of life.(Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha).

Fully aware of the deficiency of my intelligence, I concentrate my attention on Pavan Kumar and humbly ask for strength, intelligence, and true knowledge to relieve me of all blemishes, causing pain.

Victory to thee, O’Hanuman! Ocean of Wisdom – All hail to you O’Kapisa! (fountain-head of power, wisdom, and Shiva-Shakti). You illuminate all the three worlds (Entire cosmos) with your glory.

You are the divine messenger of Shri Ram. The repository of immeasurable strength, though known only as Son of Pavan (Wind), born of Anjani.

With Limbs as sturdy as Vajra (The mace of God Indra) you are valiant and brave. On you attends good Sense and Wisdom. You dispel the darkness of evil thoughts.

Your physique is beautiful golden colored and your dress is pretty. You wear earrings and have long curly hair.

You carry in your hand a lightening bolt along with a victory flag and wear the sacred thread on your shoulder.

As a descendant of Lord Sankar, you are a comfort and pride of Shri Kesari. With the luster of your Vast Sway, you are propitiated all over the universe.

You are the repository of learning, virtuous and fully accomplished, always keen to carry out the behests of Shri Ram.

You are an ardent listener, always so keen to listen to the narration of Shri Ram’s Life Stories. Your heart is filled with what Shri Ram stood for. You therefore always dwell in the hearts of Shri Ram, Lakshman, and Sita.

You appeared before Sita in a Diminutive form and spoke to her in humility. You assumed an awesome form and struck terror by setting Lanka on fire.

With over-whelming might, you destroyed the Asuras (demons) and performed all tasks assigned to you by Shri Ram with great skill.

You brought Sanjivan (A herb that revives life) and restored Lakshman back to life, Shri Raghuvir (Shri Ram) cheerfully embraced you with his heart full of joy.

Shri Raghupati (Shri Ram) lustily extolled your excellence and said: “You are as dear to me as my own brother Bharat.”

Thousands of living beings are chanting hymns of your glories; saying thus, Shri Ram warmly hugged him (Shri Hanuman).

When prophets like Sanka, even the Sage like Lord Brahma, the great hermit Narad himself, Goddess Saraswati and Ahisha (one of the immeasurable dimensions).

Even Yamraj (God of Death) Kuber (God of Wealth) and the Digpals (deputies guarding the four corners of the Universe) have been vying with one another in offering homage to your glories. How then, can a mere poet give adequate expression of your super excellence.

You rendered a great service to Sugriv. You united him with Shri Ram and he installed him on the Royal Throne. By heeding your advice, Vibhishan became Lord of Lanka. This is known all over the Universe.

On your own you dashed upon the Sun, which is at a fabulous distance of thousands of miles, thinking it to be a sweet luscious fruit.

Carrying the Lord’s Signet Ring in your mouth, there is hardly any wonder that you easily leaped across the ocean.

The burden of all difficult tasks of the world become light with your kind grace.

You are the sentry at the door of Shri Ram’s Divine Abode. No one can enter it without your permission,

All comforts of the world lie at your feet. The devotees enjoy all divine pleasures and feel fearless under your benign Protection.

You alone are befitted to carry your own splendid valor. All the three worlds (entire universe) tremor at your thunderous call.

All the ghosts, demons and evil forces keep away, with the sheer mention of your great name, Oh Mahaveer!!

All diseases, pain, and suffering disappear on reciting regularly Shri Hanuman’s holy name.

Those who remember Shri Hanuman in thought, words and deeds with Sincerity and Faith, are rescued from all crises in life.

All who hail, worship and have faith in Shri Ram as the Supreme Lord and the king of penance. You make all their difficult tasks very easy.

Whosoever comes to you for the fulfillment of any desire with faith and sincerity, Will he alone secure the imperishable fruit of human life.

All through the four ages, your magnificent glory is acclaimed far and wide. Your fame is Radiantly acclaimed all over the Cosmos.

You are Saviour and the guardian angel of Saints and Sages and destroy all Demons. You are the angelic darling of Shri Ram.

You can grant to anyone, any yogic power of Eight Siddhis (power to become light and heavy at will) and Nine Nidhis (Riches, comfort, power, prestige, fame, sweet relationship, etc.). This boon has been conferred upon you by Mother Janki.

You possess the power of devotion to Shri Ram. In all rebirths, you will always remain Shri Raghupati’s most dedicated disciple.

Through hymns sung in devotion to you, one can find Shri Ram and become free from sufferings of several births.

If at the time of death one enters the Divine Abode of Shri Ram, thereafter in all future births he is born as the Lord’s devotee.

One need not entertain any other deity for Propitiation, as a devotion of Shri Hanuman alone can give all happiness.

One is freed from all the sufferings and ill fated contingencies of rebirths in the world. One who adores and remembers Shri Hanuman.

Hail, Hail, Hail, Shri Hanuman, Lord of senses. Let your victory over the evil be firm and final. Bless me in the capacity as my supreme guru (teacher).

One who recites Chalisa one hundred times becomes free from the bondage of life and death and enjoys the highest bliss at last.

All those who recite Hanuman Chalisa (The forty Chaupais) regularly are sure to be benedicted. Such is the evidence of no less a witness as Bhagwan Sankar.

Tulsidas as a humble devotee of the Divine Master stays perpetually at his feet, he prays “Oh Lord! You enshrine within my heart and soul.”

Oh! conqueror of the Wind, Destroyer of all miseries, you are a symbol of Auspiciousness. Along with Shri Ram, Lakshman and Sita, reside in my heart. Oh! King of Gods.

Here Is the Most Powerful Protection Mantra For Emergency Help

Published

on

Protection Mantra Image

We live in an unprecedented time when it’s hard to feel safe and protected. What seemed to be solid and stable yesterday, feels unsafe and fragile today. The world economy, health systems, and even jobs and schools don’t provide us with a sense of security anymore. Along with that traditional beliefs and old systems are so shaky that it seems like that they can collapse anytime. This is all a big lesson that’s teaching us how to look beyond the material and see the spiritual support and guidance despite the chaos. It is only when we reconnect with the Divine within us can we make sense of what’s really happening in the world. Therefore, in this article, we want to share with you a very powerful protection mantra for emergency help that will assist you on your spiritual journey and create a sense of spiritual safety and stability during the turbulent times we live in.

Sacred chants in Sanskrit can make miracles for those who consistently practice them because they are a powerful appeal to Divine energy. And one of the most powerful keys to this is the mantra Om Mahadevaya Namaha, an appeal to the Absolute.

How Does Protection Mantra Work?

The protection mantra is a powerful tool you can use in difficult and dangerous situations when you feel hopeless. The sacred sounds of the mantra are endowed with a special power that gives you energy and strength to protect yourself from negative energy, evil eye, people with bad intentions and even save your life in a dangerous situation.

The protection mantra has the power to change the negative vibration of the situation by neutralizing them. By pronouncing the sacred sounds of protection mantra you’re expressing your trust in the Universe and Highest Powers to solve your problem in the most harmonious way.

Shiva Protection Mantra

Now let’s take a look at what Om Mahadevaya Namaha means.

The literal translation of the mantra is:

OM” — the original sound of the cosmic vibration, the root cause of everything that exists. Being a Maha-bija mantra (“maha” – great,” bija “– seed), it repeatedly enhances the energy and effect of mantras.

MAHA” — translates as “Great”.

DEVA” — translates as “God/Lord”.

NAMAHA” — can be translated as ‘I respectfully bow/greet/humbly trust/worship/thank you’.

Who Is Mahadev?

shiva mantra image

Mahadev is one of the principal deities of Hinduism, also known as Shiva.

Lord Shiva is revered and glorified all over the world, his image occupies an honorable place in many philosophical and religious movements around the world. According to the authoritative Indian researcher R.N. Dandekar, Shaivism (recognition of Shiva as the Supreme Deity) is the oldest of the currently existing religions of the civilized world. A number of researchers believe that yoga was precisely the pre-Aryan heritage associated with the cult of Shiva.

Shiva represents the cosmic consciousness, the static masculine principle of the Universe (Purusha). He is in union with Shakti (Prakriti), which symbolizes the dynamic material beginning of the Universe and embodies its creative energy.

Shiva is the key deity in the philosophy of Hinduism, where he is recognized as part of the supreme Divine triad — Trimurti. According to classical Hindu philosophy, our universe exists due to three Divine aspects: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Brahma is perceived as the creator of the universe, Vishnu is the deity responsible for maintaining life, and Shiva is revered as its destroyer.

Mahadev manifests himself in the most difficult situations, supports life, protects the Dharma, brings order to the universe, destroys illusions, and gets rid of obscurations. Shiva is the Supreme God, and both the Gods (Devas) and the Asuras worship him equally.

His mind is calm and unshakable, like Mount Kailash, his heart is filled with the greatest compassion. Lord Shiva himself, unlike other Deities, constantly performs his sadhana, staying in deep meditation, and also helps spiritual seekers on their spiritual path. His protection makes a person almost invulnerable.

How to Practice Protection Mantra?

Om Mahadevaya Namaha Image

First of all, you need a quiet atmosphere so that no one distracts you from chanting.

The second important condition is the inner attitude and firm belief in the power of the sacred sound.

The third thing to pay attention to is the correct posture. Ideally – the basic yoga asana – Lotus position. However, you can just sit comfortably on the mat. The main thing is to keep your back straight.

First, chant the mantra along with the audio recording. When you learn the proper pronunciation of the Sanskrit words, you can start chanting without audio recording.

When chanting, listen to your own voice and feel how your body reacts to the sound. Count the number of repetitions. It should be 108 times. For your convenience use mala beads with 108 beads.

To enhance the effect of mantra chanting use visualization. For protective purposes, it’s good to imagine an energy shield around you that is reflecting all the negativity. You can also visualize Shiva and His protective shield.

After mantra chanting practice, stay in a meditative state so that the results are fixed. Also, it’s essential to tell gratitude to Shiva for His love and protection.

The Bottom Line

The law of concentration says: “you become what your attention is constantly directed to”. By practicing the protection mantra, a spiritual seeker seeks to achieve unity with Mahadev, cultivating the qualities of a Great Lord in himself. Once you make the protection mantra chanting practice a part of your daily routine, you will face far fewer troubles and danger. The positive vibrations of your aura will not resonate with negative people, toxic environments, and dangerous situations, therefore you will stop facing them.

How To Connect With Vasudhara: the Goddess Of Abundance & Wealth

Published

on

Vasudhara Mantra Image

Vasudhara is a goddess of wealth, prosperity, spiritual wealth, and wisdom. She is considered to be one of the 21 Taras, also known as “Golden/Yellow Tara“. This beautiful Goddess brings spiritual and material abundance to anyone who recites her mantra. In this article, I will introduce you to Yellow Tara and share with you her sacred mantra that can help you significantly improve your spiritual and material wellbeing.

Who Is Vasudhara (Yellow Tara/Golden Tara)?

Vasudhara, whose name means “stream of gems” in Sanskrit, is the Buddhist bodhisattva of wealth, prosperity, and abundance. She is also known as Golden Tara or Yellow Tara.

The goddess originated in Indian Buddhism and was later transmitted to Tibet. In India, Vasudhara is compared to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, and abundance. Both goddesses have identical iconography and often appear with their husbands. Lakshmi’s husband is Vishnu, and Vasudhara’s husband is Dzambhala.

Vasudhara’s heart is filled with compassion and loving-kindness toward all beings. She is the embodiment of the boundless generosity which is the first of the six transcendent perfections that are fundamentals for the Bodhisattva path. According to the Buddhist tradition, Vasudhara is able to materialize the wealth for the one who chants her mantra and performs the rituals that invoke the goddess.

The origin of Vasudhara in Buddhism appears in the Buddhist text “The Vasudhara Dharani”. According to a legend “The Inquiry of the Layman Sucandra,” described in the text, an impoverished layman named Sucandra came to the Buddha Shakyamuni and asked if he could give him a way to obtain large amounts of gold, grain, silver, and gems in order to feed his large family and engage in acts of charity with the surplus fortune. Shakyamuni said that the Vasudhara mantra would suit this purpose. He gave Sucandra the Vasudhara mantra and sacred ritual that when followed would result in good fortune and prosperity brought on by Vasudhara herself. Upon commencing the rituals and teaching them to others, Sucandra began to prosper. Noticing his success, the monk Ananda asked Shakyamuni how he had obtained this fortune so quickly. Shakyamuni instructed Ananda to also practice the Vasudhara mantra and the ritual and told him to “impart it to others ‘for the good of many’.

Vasundhara is a bodhisattva-liberator, who gives a person piously acquired wealth. This beautiful goddess also ensures that spiritual wisdom is accompanied by favorable circumstances: high standard of living, longevity, and happiness.

Yellow Tara Symbolism

Yellow Tara Image

Yellow Tara is beautiful and attractive. She is youthful as a sixteen-year-old, and her golden body scintillates with radiant light.

Her skin color is golden-bronze. This color is associated with precious metals and symbolizes nobility and generosity.

The goddess has three beautiful smiling faces. Her right face is red, which represents control. The middle face is golden, which represents increase. And her left face is red, which represents compassion.

The goddess is adorned with the five divine silks and the eight jeweled ornaments.

Usually, Golden Tara is depicted seated on a lotus flower base in the lalitasana, or royal pose, with one foot tucked in towards her and the other hanging off the flower base but resting on a small treasure. She can, however, also be depicted in a standing position.

The number of her arms may differ from image to image. She can have as few as two arms and as many as six. The two-armed representations are more common in Tibetan and Indian art, while six-armed representations are almost exclusive to Nepalese art. Although the six-armed image originates in India, they are rare and only a few examples have been found.

Her first right-hand makes the gesture of generosity, while her other two right hands hold the ‘Three Jewels of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, – symbolizing the necessity of maintaining the commitments of refuge to the three jewels, and a golden rosary, symbolizing continuous practice and self-examination, vital to enlightenment path.

With her three left hands, she holds a small treasure-vase (a symbol of long life and initiation), an ear of grain (a symbol of abundant harvests and earthly benefits), and a sacred text (a symbol of wisdom).

Representations with more arms, such as the six-armed Nepali representation, also depict Golden Tara as a goddess that is holding a full vase and the Book of Wisdom. With her free hands, she performs mudras. The most common mudra in paintings and figurines featuring Vasudhara is the Varadamudra, also known as the charity mudra, which symbolizes the “pouring forth of divine blessings.”

When depicted with two arms and one face, Vasudhara has a golden body (which symbolizes the earth element) and Ratnasambhava in her crown. Sometimes she is depicted with two or three eyes. The three eyes depiction represents perfect awareness, understanding, compassion, wisdom, and insight into the past, present, and future. Her two hands holding a sheaf of corn represent the process of sowing the seeds of enlightenment. A single wish-fulfilling jewel or a bowl of wish-fulfilling jewels represent wealth and wish-fulfillment.

In Tibetan iconography, the goddess is depicted sitting beside her husband Dzambhala or in union with him. In these cases, she holds a stem with grains in her left hand and a rosary in the right.

In her Tantric depiction, the goddess is red in color, with ornaments of bones holding a stem of grains or precious gems in the right hand, and a skull cup with blood in her left hand. Her red form is also depicted in union with Dzambhala, who is in the same color.

Vasudhara Mantra

Vasudhara practice requires dedication and self-discipline. Therefore, before starting the practice make sure you’ll be able to invest your time and energy into it.

Preparation:

Before starting your practice, write down your intention on a piece of paper. Speak from your heart. Start with words: “I dedicate my Vasudhara mantra practice to … (describe what you intend to gain)”

Instructions:
  • On the first day, you should recite the mantra 800 times.
  • Then, every day afterward, recite the mantra 300 times. 100 times in the morning, 100 times in the late afternoon/evening, and the final 100 times before going to bed. Or, you can recite the mantra 300 times all at once at any time of the day.
  • It is advisable to get a Vasudhara statuette or Yellow Tara thangka so that you can recite the mantra in front of it.
  • While reciting the mantra, visualize Golden Tara and how her blessings are coming to you in a form of golden energy.
  • Always express your gratitude to the Goddess before and after practice.
Mantra text:

Om Śri Vasudhara Ratna Nidhana Kashetri Soha

Though it may seem like a lot of work, such dedication will definitely pay off. It is said that devotees of this practice will accumulate seven kinds of prosperity – wealth, quality, offspring, long life, happiness, praise, and wisdom. Vasudhara will bless you with enough resources to be able to engage in spiritual practices without worrying too much about your finances. It also believed that this practice leads to spiritual enlightenment.

Short Vasudhara Mantra

If you don’t have enough time or energy to dedicate to the full Vasudhara mantra practice, you can recite a short version of the Vasudhara mantra. The practice of this mantra increases good luck and well-being, as well as helps to overcome difficulties and achieve progress in many directions.

The text of the mantra:

Om Vasudhare Svaha

Recite this mantra 7, 21, or 108 times.

Planetary Mantras: Align Yourself With the Energy of the 9 Planets

Published

on

From the Vedic astrology perspective, the planets of our Solar system influence every level of our existence. Thus, each of us is a unique reflection of the various combinations of planetary energy. Vedic astrology recognizes the planets in our Solar system that are visible to the naked eye along with the two nodes of the Moon – Rahu and Ketu – that considered to be the “shadow planets” because the nodes of the Moon do not have any mass. In this article, I will share with you how the energy of the 9 planets of our Solar system influences our lives and how planetary mantras can help us to be aligned with these planets.

Read on.

The 9 Planets In Vedic Astrology (Jyotish)

Vedic astrology states that there are 9 planets that influence our life:

  1. the Sun (Surya or Ravi)
  2. the Moon (Chandra or Soma)
  3. Mars (Kuja or Mangala)
  4. Mercury (Budha)
  5. Jupiter (Guru or Brihaspati)
  6. Venus (Shukra)
  7. Saturn (Shani)
  8. Rahu (the North Node of the Moon)
  9. Ketu (the South Node of the Moon)

According to Maharishi Parashara, these planets were created as a means through which the results of our karma are transmitted. However, the influence of the planets upon you is similar to that of a thermometer and your body temperature. The thermometer only indicates the temperature of the body but does not itself bring about a change in your body temperature.

Similarly, the 9 planets represent transmitted energy, but not an originated power. These planets do not dictate but rather indicate the energies (or our karma) that are influencing us and our lives.

Significant Power of Mantras

Power of Planetary Mantras Image

Mantra chanting is one of the most powerful tools that we can use for aligning ourselves with the energy of the 9 planets.

Mantras are sound vibrations that tune our bodies and the world around us to certain frequencies.

The Vedic science of the universe, or Sankhya, is in fact the forerunner of modern metaphysics. It considers Shabda Brahman, or the primordial cosmic sound that triggers the process of creation, as the basis of being. According to Vedic science, all things remain in the ether in the form of sound, and only then takes on a gross material form. Modern science explains Vedic knowledge in the language of quantum physics and string theory.

Interesting research was conducted in the middle of the last century by Hans Jenny, a physician and natural scientist from Switzerland. With the help of photographic equipment, he was able to record the effect of sound on matter. Jenny placed sand, water, and other substances on a metal plate attached to an oscillator – a vibrator that creates vibrations of different frequencies. Under the influence of vibrations, regular geometric shapes were formed, incredibly similar to Vedic yantras – sacred symbolic images of mantras.
