Someone wrote to me for a mantra for securing a good job. The following mantra can be applied not only for that, but to help improve one’s life or to help secure what your heart desire’s. More than just a mantra, it requires a surrendering of oneself to the Lord. To understand more of the concept of surrender, please read the translation of ‘Nisaadhanta‘, a discourse by Shree Morari Babu, in the books section.
This Mantra is from Ch IX of the Bhagvad Geeta. It is the Verse 22:
Ananyaa shchinta yanto maam
Ye janaah paryupaasatey
Teshaam nityaa bhiyuktaa naam
To those men who worship Me alone,
thinking of no other, of those ever-united,
(To those men, ever-united in love, who surrender to Me, after having done their best)
I secure what is not already possessed,
and preserve what they already possess.
In order to improve life one must first get rid of fear.
Sarvaswarupe sarva shakti sarveshe sarva shakti samanvite,
bhaye bhyastrahi no devi durge devi namostute.
I bow to you Durga Devi, all forms reside in Her, All powerful Goddess, protect us from all fears

Sanskrit believes that the sound of the word never gets ruined and that it has an everlasting value.
Words in Sanskrit open out from their seed (beej) form.
A root is always a single syllable that contains one of the basic sounds a, I, u, ri
The root or seed may create a word, yet the word will vibrate to its best, and gives it tremendous power.
The Vedic or the Sanskrit view gives more importance to the special sound it should produce, than to the meaning of the spoken word.
