What is the science behind reciting mantras?

Some excellent answers have been given on the theory of mantras.
But I hold with the Mimamsaka idea that all knowledge has to have a PRACTICAL application - if it cannot be applied then it must be left aside - like the milk in the kshīra-sāgara upon which Viṣhṇu lies - it cannot be used on our cereal or to make cafe latte!
"Mantra” comes from the root — mananāt-trāyate iti mantra — man = mind; tra = protect.

This means the mantra is a centering device which protects your mind from random thinking!

As the guru sat in lotus posture on a wooden bench with a screen behind him, Ganga Dhar Babu arrived with his equipment. Taking every precaution for success, he greedily exposed twelve plates. On each one he soon found the imprint of the wooden bench
and screen, but once again the master’s form was missing.
With tears and shattered pride, Ganga Dhar Babu sought out his guru. It was many hours before Lahiri Mahasaya broke his silence with a pregnant comment:

“I am Spirit. Can your camera reflect the omnipresent

“I see it cannot! But, Holy Sir, I lovingly desire a picture of your bodily temple. My vision has been narrow; until today I did not realize that in you the Spirit fully dwells.”

“Come, then, tomorrow morning. I will pose for you.”
Again the photographer

Fin 2020, le Dr Angelo Antonio Fierro, coordinateur national de l'école de médecine anthroposophique en Italie, également médecin scolaire d’une école #Steiner, donnait une conférence sur le Covid-19, à la Maison des Arts Anthroposophiques, à Naples : 1/24
Durant ce qui s’apparente à un véritable prêche, il explique ce qu’est le #Covid et comment s’en prémunir.

L’acmé de son discours ? La lecture d’un #mantra de Rudolf Steiner accompagnée de gestes d’#eurythmie. Voici le cœur de son enseignement : 2/24
Selon lui, l’#épidémie (il n’y a pas de pandémie) de Covid-19 est “la maladie du matérialisme unidimentionnel“. Elle ne provient pas d’un virus mais d’une “pensée malade dans laquelle la #médecine a perdu son élan christique et s’est camouflée de manière unilatérale“. 3/24

1-A lot of #Spiritual #Sadhakas have asked me about #Mantra

The following is a little synopsis

A Mantra is a sacred word or phrase of spiritual significance and power.


2-Hymns; "that which saves the one who reflects"

(from the verb root ‘man’ = "to think")

Along with the #Brahmanas, as hymns Mantras constitute the ritual section of the #Veda (#KarmaKanda) (2/7)

3-Mantras are classified according to their metres

#Gayatri has 24 syllables with 9 subdivisions

#Usnik has 28 syllables with 7 subdivisions

#Prakrti has 40 syllables with 8 subdivisions

#Brhati has 36 syllables with 9 subdivisions. (3/7)

1-What is the #Philosophy of #Japa and why is it important for #Sadhana?

What Is Japa?

Japa is the repetition of any Mantra or Name of the Lord. (1/15)

2-In this Kali Yuga or iron age when the physique of the vast majority of persons is not good,

..rigid Hatha Yogic practices are very difficult.

Japa is an easy way to God-realization. (2/15)

3-Tukaram, Dhruva, Prahlada, Valmiki Rishi, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa -

..all had attained salvation by uttering the Name of God. (3/15)

1-Swami #Sivananda used to say this about #Mantra and #Japa #Sadhana

“Do not bother yourself about #Matra, #Para and #Pashyanti, etc.

Do #Japa of your #Ishta #Mantra mentally with its meaning and right #Bhava.

You will realize the spiritual benefits. (1/13)

#Astrology. Image
2-Why do you waste your time counting the pebbles on the bank?

Take a dip immediately in the Ganges and enjoy the bath” (2/13)

#संस्कृतिबोध Image
3-All Mantras have equal potency or power.

It is not quite accurate to say that

... Om Namo Narayanaya is superior Om Namah Shivaya or Radhesyam or Sri Ram, and so on. (3/13)

The detention of men who sought safety on our shores is shocking. We must take action. The Government takes silence as acceptance.

A thread on how to TAKE ACTION to stand in solidarity who those detained, and demand the Government immediately release people from detention 👇
Drive past Mantra (Melb) & Kangaroo Point (Bris), honk your horn. Don't underestimate the impact of this

Call your local MP and urge them to add their voice to pressure the Government.

Join one of the daily in person actions at #mantra - 3pm weekdays, 5pm Sat/Sun
Contact Accor hotels (who own Mantra) and tell them you will not use their hotels until they stop accepting $ to detain people in hotels. There is no business in abuse.

Sign the petition for urgent release - people have been detained FOR OVER 7 years.

2.The Temple is 1 of the 6 Holy Shrines of Murugan called Arupadaiveedu in Tamil. Temple has 60 steps & each one named after the 60 Tamil years. These are considered at par with the importance of 18 steps in Sabarimalai. It is Bhagwan Murugan’s fourth home.
@Itishree001 @sd1733 Image
3. Swamimalai is world famous for its school, teaches the ancient craft of making bronze icons.
Brahma, Bhagwan of creation, disrespected Muruga at the time of visiting Mount Kailash. The child Muruga got angry with Brahma & asked Him how he was creating living beings. @sfeksk Image

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image

1-What is #Om and why does Om precede every #Mantra?

#Om or #Aum is the basis of all sounds

The universal symbol-word for #God.


2-Om of the #Vedas became the sacred word Hum of the Tibetans, Amin of the Muslims , and Amen of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Jews and Christians.

Amen in Hebrew means "Sure", "Faithful”

3-Om is the all-pervading sound emanating from the Invisible Cosmic vibration (Holy Ghost of Christians)

..God in His aspect of Creator

..the “word" of the #Bible

..the voice of creation, testifying to the Divine Presence in every atom.

Wir sollten aufhören vom #Alkoholiker, der in #Armut lebt, weil er lieber #HartzIV kassiert statt #arbeiten zu gehen.
#Armut sieht anders aus.
Arm kann auch eine #Alleinerziehende #Mutter sein, die sich während sie in zwei schlecht bezahlte #Jobs arbeitet versucht ihre Kinder zu ernähren. (2/X)
#Armut kann aber auch #rassistisch geprägt sein. Viele #POC bekommen keine Jobs, aufgrund ihrer Hautfarbe. (3/X)

So much #fear, #uncertainty & #confusion abounds in our #society & #community right now. It's #understandable, a #Human response.For over 40 years my #Motto, #CatchPhrase or #Mantra,if you will, has been & still is a lyric in a song by one of my favourite Rock Bands- Uriah Heep!
I've used the line to define a lot of the philosophy I believe in, from a #signature on a #profile to some #website subscription to a deeply felt, personal interpretation of whatever is happening in the present moment in time!
The song: #CircleOfHands,the line: #Todays are only #Yesterdays, #Tomorrow! It says to me that whatever is happening #Today,by #Tomorrow it will be cast into history & be a #Yesterday!Always gave me hope that whatever ails us now,we'll survive& look back& realize all things pass!

Utas pendek tentang tata bahasa #Sanskerta sederhana #mantra yg umum dipakai, seperti:

oṁ namaḥ śivāya, gaṇapataye namaḥ, namo bhagavate vāsudevāya, namo buddhāya, dst.
Sanskerta adl bahasa mantra; susunan & bunyinya sengaja dirancang utk memaksimalkan efek mantra (= instrumen pikiran).

Jadi, agar memperoleh efek maksimal, kita perlu memahami makna dan mampu mengucapkannya dgn tepat—ibarat 'password' utk mengakses sstu harus tepat.
Kalau kita perhatikan mantra-mantra pendek di atas punya 3 elemen dasar:

1. oṁ (pranava — benih suara awal semesta);
2. namaḥ (namo adl ubahan fonem dr namaḥ krn hukum sandhi);
3. nama dewata yg dipuja (śiva, vāsudeva, buddha, dst).

Happy Gayatri Jayanti! 🙏🏼🌺

Ekadashi (hari ke-11) suklapaksa, bulan Jyestha, diperingati sebagai hari turunnya Gayatri ke dunia. #Mantra #Gayatri adl mantra Veda paling utama, dan bahkan disebut Ibu Veda. Ada kisah yang menarik tentang ini.
Ribuan tahun yang lalu, ada seorang raja yang sangat perkasa bernama Vishvamitra. Kerajaannya luas, makmur, & damai.

Suatu hari, sang raja ingin "blusukan" menjelajah negerinya. Diikuti pasukan-pasukan terbaiknya, ia mengunjungi seluruh pelosok negeri.
Karena luasnya, perjalanan mereka memakan waktu lama. Suatu hari mereka sampai ke padepokan Resi Vasistha. Beliau dikenal sebagai 'Brahma-resi', yaitu resi yang telah mencapai kesadaran tertinggi, 'manunggal' dengan Hyang Agung.

#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.

*Clears Throat*

How You Are Performing #Magick Everyday and Don’t Even Realize It.


#Manifestation 101.

For any of you more practical folks reading who may be skeptical due to my use of the word “Magick”.

This will not be a “wooey” thread.

It will better your life.

And it will CERTAINLY give you an UNFAIR ADVANTAGE if acted upon (looking at you @ipb_media).

Keep reading.
First things first, let me clarify that I’m using the word Magick as defined by Aleister Crowley.

#Magick - The Science and Art of causing change to occur in conformity with one's will.

1/ Friends, I think we have a new Mantra.
2/ A few words , repeated aloud or mentally can be very powerful. It can lend strength, resolve and courage.
3/ In literature, one of my favorite mantras came from Frank Herbert’s Dune. It starts:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. “
