Some More Mantras

Dear Readers,

I am very happy with the response that I have received from my readers, in connection with the Mantras on my web-site.

Hence I am sending you some more, which I hope that you will get to chant, whenever the need arises, which I know is, always.

Since God is all-pervading, He also exists in the form of the vibration of all sounds.

I have read that ‘Prayer is the very breath of God’

Therefore it is possible to experience ones personal God through the mystic sound of Mantras.

It is easier to achieve ones objective when one has faith, and also when the prayer is uttered with sincerity.

One generally prays when one has realized that for achieving that, which one desires, one needs to rely upon a Higher Power.

The above attitude, weakens our ego and purifies us, as we acknowledge our shortcomings.

MANTRA for the FULFILLMENT OF DESIRES and RELEASE FROM BONDAGE

 AUM represents the blueprint of Creation.

Aum emerged from Brahman the Creator’s mouth before He created Creation.

The Aum written in Samskrit has a dot over the crescent.

That dot is called the ‘Bindu’ and it signifies the silence into which the Sound of Aum leads.

THE MANTRA:

Om kaaram bindu samyuktam nityam dhyaayanti yoginah

Kaamadam mokshadam chaiva Omkaaraaya namo namaha

Which means:

The sages constantly meditate upon the sound of Om and its ‘Bindu’ (dot)
We offer our obeisance to the Divine sound of Om repeatedly,
Which has the power to fulfill our desires and release us from bondage.

MANTRA FOR DESTRUCTION OF EVIL AND REMOVAL OF MISERIES-KRISHNA

If your Ishta Devta is Krishna, then the following mantra is for you:

Krishnaaya Vaasudevaaya Haraye Paramaatmane

Pranatah Klesha naashaaya Govindaaya namo namaha

Which means:

O Krishna! Son of Vaasudeva, You are the Supreme Lord, remover of miseries.
You destroy all evil, O Govinda!
I repeatedly bow to You!

SHREE RAMA IS CALLED ‘MARYAADAA PURSHOTTAMMA’

HE IS  CONSIDERED THE EPITOME OF DUTY.

I would chant the following Mantra if I wanted direction in the right path (for me) to follow. 

Raamaaya  Raamabhadraaya Raamachandraaya vedhase

Raghunaathaaya naathaaya Seetaaya pataye namah.

 Which means:

I bow to the Brilliant Rama, doer of good, Lord of the Raghus, the Beloved husband of Seeta.

 MANTRAS for WHENEVER ONE FEELS WEAK AND VULNERABLE

 Since the Lord is present in full form, all through His Creation, He lives within us.

No, He IS US! RATHER WE ARE GOD! GOD IS PURE CONSCIOUSNESS AND I AM PURE CONSCIOUSNESS!

Thus proclaim the UPANISHADS!

Allow me to share with you the MAHAVAAKYAS, (Great Utterances)

Mantra while taking a bath

I remember whenever my mother-in-law would bathe she would be calling out the names of all rivers. So after the shower one would come out not only physically cleansed but feeling cleansed of all sins (remember a dip in the Ganga is meant to do that!

Gange cha Yamune chaiva Godaavari Saraswati

Narmade Sindhu Kaaveri jalesmin sannidhim kuru

SANSKRIT

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.
