In this article, I want to share with you another kind of meditation, which is perfect for both – beginners and experienced practitioners. This meditation is mantra meditation. This type of meditation is based on mantras and it is a very powerful tool for self-transformation and self-development. But before I start talking about mantra meditation, I want to clear up what mantra is.

What Is Mantra?

In my article “What Is Mantra? Discover Three Types Of Mantras That Transform Reality” I have already written about what a mantra is. In this article, I’d like to continue my explanation.

The word “mantra” can be broken down into two parts: “man” and “tra”. “Man” means “mind”, and “tra” means “transport” or “vehicle”. In other words, a mantra is a tool of our mind – a powerful sound or vibration that we can use to enter a deep state of meditation, to connect with the Universe, and make our energy vibrate on the higher frequency.

Generally, a mantra is a syllable, word or sentence that is used in meditation to focus and free our mind and achieve a certain mental state.

Mantra is a sacred verbal formula that contains higher vibrational energy and information. It is able to transform our consciousness and help us in our spiritual development. Each mantra has its own meaning, purpose, and vibration.

The most powerful mantras are those that contain the names of Deities. It is believed that when we pronounce the names of Deities we enter into contact with them and activate their power which can help liberate and bless us.

Mantra’s Benefits

When we are using mantras for our meditations it helps us to enter a special state of consciousness in which we clear our mind from intrusive thoughts, images, emotions, and anxieties, that is, mantra practice helps to delve more deeply into a meditative state.

Moreover, each mantra carries a deep sacred meaning and purpose such as to bring health, love, prosperity, protection, peace, and joy into our lives. Being repeatedly chanted, mantras reveal their power and, connecting with the energy our intentions, are able to change our lives for the better.

In addition, the vibration of sound created by mantra affects our physical bodies. This manifests itself in relaxation, stress relief, energizing and strength.

Most Popular Mantras And Their Meanings

At the initial stage of the mastering of mantra meditation, it is better to use mantras that are not too complicated, the ones that are easier to remember and easy to chant. Here are some of the mantras that you can use for your mantra meditation.

Mala Beads

Mantra Chanting with Prayer beads image

When you’re practicing mantra meditation mala beads can be very helpful. Mala beads help to dive deeper into the meditative state and maintain concentration. And with the help of mala beads, it is convenient to count how many times you have already repeated the mantra.

Traditionally, a mantra is being repeated 108 or 1008 times during a meditation session.

Mala beads can be different. They are made of various types of wood, plastic, stone, glass, seeds and other materials. A number of beads also varies and depends on the religion they serve. Beads can have separators (larger beads that divide the beads into steps) and pendants (for example, a cross, OM symbol, Hamsa hand, etc.).

Interestingly, the regular usage of mala beads can help in the treatment of joints diseases. This is due to the fact that when you’re touching the beads with your fingers you activate fine motor skills of your fingers.

Recommendation For Your Mantra Meditation

Before you start performing a mantra meditation, I would like to give some recommendations that will help you to build your practice correctly.

#1 Pronounce all the sounds of the mantra clearly

Keep in mind, that every single sound and syllable of the mantra has a deep meaning. Therefore it is so important to correctly and clearly pronounce all the sounds of the mantra.

#2 Learn the mantra by heart

It is best to practice mantra meditation with your eyes closed. This will help you to relax and dive deeper into the meditative state. Therefore it’s best to learn the mantra by heart so you don’t need to read it from the piece of paper.

#3 Choose a mantra according to your intention

When working with the mantra, it is important to know what exactly you want to achieve. Imagine as if you have already achieved it. If you do not have a clear intention (abundance, love, health, etc.), then use universal mantras or mantras that you intuitively feel attracted to.

#4 Chant the mantra in accordance with your inner tempo and rhythm, steadily and quietly

The mantra should flow like a song – without any tension, discomfort or rejection.

Mantra Meditation

There are different techniques that you can use for performing mantra meditation. In this article, I want to share with you the four most popular ones. You can choose either one of these techniques or you can alternate or mix them. It’s totally up to you!

Mantra Meditation Techniques

#1 Chanting a mantra in your mind, in a whisper or aloud

This technique of mantra meditation is quite simple.

Before you start performing mantra chanting, choose a suitable mantra for yourself, memorize it and get your mala beads.

Take a comfortable position for your mantra meditation. Make sure to keep your spine straight. Take your mala beads and close your eyes.

According to the ancient tradition, you should hold the mala beads with the thumb and middle fingers of your right hand. Touch the beads with your thumb, and slightly twist each bead from side to side, the middle finger acts as a support. Do not touch the mala beads with your index finger.

Touch the first bead, say the mantra one time. Now, move the bead with your thumb and middle finger. Touch the second bead and say the mantra again. So you will go full circle, that is 108 times.

Come out of the meditation gradually. Open your eyes. Track your feelings and emotions. Stay a little more in this state.

#2 Chanting mantras with a concentration on the breath

Mala Beads Prayer Image

This technique is also very simple. Usually, people use the OM mantra for performing this technique.

So, take a comfortable position with your back being straight and close your eyes. As you inhale and exhale, say the OM mantra aloud or in your mind, stretching the sound for the entire inhale or exhale.

You can perform this technique by setting up the alarm or guided by internal sensations. You can use the mala beads to count the number of mantra repetitions. One inhalation and one exhalation count as one repetition.

#3 Mantra listening

Simple listening to mantras also has a beneficial effect. You can find online a huge number of video and audio recordings of mantras performed by various musicians. Just choose the one you like and use it for your mantra meditation.

Take a comfortable meditation pose (by sitting with your spine being straight or laying on your back). Close your eyes. Relax your body and focus on the mantra. You can stay in this position as long as you want. If you fall asleep, it’s ok. The mantra listening will relax you very deeply and you will wake up full of energy.

I often do this meditation when I put a face mask on my face. I need to keep the mask on my face for 15-20 minutes. So why to waste the time when I can use it for my spiritual benefits? I turn on the mantras, get comfortable, close my eyes, relax and rest. After this session, I feel very relaxed and joyful.

#4 Group mantra meditation

An example of such meditation is OM chanting.

In short, OM Chanting is a very ancient healing technique that is performed in a group and uses the cosmic vibration of OM sound to heal people and the planet.

When performing OM chanting collectively, the healing power of OM sound increases. Feelings, thoughts and negative energies dissolve, transform and change under the influence of the healing power of OM. Emotions get released. Inner peace, happiness, and love get attracted. This powerful meditation leads to a more joyful life, supports good health and helps achieve inner harmony.

Conclusion

Try different techniques of mantra meditation and soon you will definitely see wonderful results of this practice in your life and notice amazing inner transformation that will lead you to inner peace. Your emotional state will become calm and joyful. You will become a light that attracts good people and good luck.

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

planetary mantras jyotish image

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. Surprisingly, under the influence of the OM mantra, Jenny received a clear image of the Sri Yantra, which contains the creative energy of the Universe.

Thus, both the Vedic scriptures and scientific research confirm the significant power of mantras.

Now let’s take a closer look at each of the 9 planets, what types of energies they represent, what they are responsible for, and the mantras that can help us to align ourselves with their energies.
