Chanting Mantras can balance your emotions and can help you to keep stress at bay
Mantras are usually a part of older people? Do you guys find it old-fashioned or not your cup of tea? Well, if that is the case, then you guys really need to change your mindsets and come out of those typical stereotypes. Mantras are certain utterance or a syllable. Today, modern science sees the whole existence as reverberations of energy, different levels of vibrations. Where there is a vibration, there is bound to be a sound. So, that means, the whole existence is a kind of sound. Of these, a few mantras or a few sounds have been identified, which could be like keys. If you use them in a certain way, they become a key to open up a different dimension of life and experience within you.
Mantra gives you a key to existence!
We all try to find the actual meaning of our existence in this world. Isn’t it? So, the mantra is not something that you utter. It is something that you strive to become because unless you become the key, existence will not open up for you. Becoming the mantra means you are becoming the key. Only if you have the key then only you will able to open the lock. Otherwise, someone else has to open it for you and you have to listen to him.
Mantras are really very powerful.Just one mantra can do tremendous things to people. They can be an effective force in creating something but only if they come from that kind of a source where there is a complete understanding of all that is sound. When we say “all that is sound,” we are talking about the creation itself. If a mantra comes from that kind of source, with that level of understanding and when the transmission is pure, then mantras can be an effective force.
Importance of awareness in approaching mantras!
There are different types of mantras. Every mantra activates a particular kind of energy in a different part of the body. Without that necessary awareness, just repeating the sound only brings dullness to the mind. Any repetition of the sound always makes your mind dull. But when it is done with proper awareness, with an exact understanding of what it is, a mantra could be a very powerful means. As a science, it is a very powerful dimension, but if it is imparted without the necessary basis and without creating the necessary situations, it can cause lots of damage because this is a subjective science. Recite mantra or Gayatri mantra with proper awareness.
Sound is More Important than Meaning
That is the reason why when Sanskrit is taught, it has to be learned by rote. People just chant the language endlessly. It does not matter whether you know the meaning or not. The sound is important, not the meaning. Yes, only sound matters.Meanings are made up in your mind. It is the sound and the form which are connecting.
