Read on to know about the significance of mantra
The Vedas are full of mantras, therefore have been kept for ages in
their raw form to use in the different practices like patha, karma,
jata, gana, patas. It has been done to ensure that the chanter clearly
interprets the correct letters and sound for each letter (svara). People
are advised to chant the mantras only when they know the correct
pronunciation of it. That is how mantras are kept against deterioration
Mantras Are Energy-Based Sounds
Sound is the foremost content of the creation. Mantras are divine
sounds. Saying any word produces an actual physical vibration. Over
time, if we know what the effect of that vibration is, then the word may
come to have meaning associated with the effect of saying that vibration
or word. Mantras appear really powerful when this sound effect reaches
the mind and the surroundings.
Mantras Create Thought-Energy Waves
Mantra, when chanted sincerely produces a state where the organism
vibrates at the rate completely in tune with the energy and spiritual
state, represented by and contained within the mantra.
Mantra Have Fire-Like Energy
Mantras have fire like energy which can bring a positive and beneficial
result, or it can produce an energy meltdown when misused or practiced
without some guidance. There are certain mantra formulas which are so
exact, so specific and so powerful that they must be learned and
practiced under careful supervision by a qualified guru.
Mantras Eventually Quiet the Mind
At a deep level, subconscious mind is a collective consciousness of all
the forms of primitive consciousnesses which exist throughout the
physical and subtle bodies. Sincere use of mantra can excavate into
subconscious crystallized thoughts stored in the organs and glands and
transform these bodily parts into repositories of peace.
A mantra is a powerful word or phrase that may or may not have meaning
in the same way as a sentence. Mantras can only be experienced, there is
no proper term to define them and phrase them. That is why; they get
passed from generation to generation.
