~~~~~Hi everyone. Some fundamental truths to remember about Mantra ~~
1. Mantras are energy-based sounds. Words used in conversation derive their power from the meaning they convey.
Mantra derives its power from the energy effect its sounds produce. Pronouncing a mantra creates a particualr physical
vibration in the form of sound that in turn produces various "energetic effects" in the physical and subtle body.
2. Mantras are also chakra-based sounds. Each of the fifty letters in the Sanskrit alphabet corresponds to one of the
fifty petals on chakras one through six, from the base of the spine to the brow. Sanskrit mantra vibrates to the letters
in the words of the mantra, which energizes the petal, and attracts ambient spiritual energy in the atmosphere to the person
pronouncing the mantra. In this way, mantra affects both our physical bodies and our spiritual consciousness. We literally
grow, in spirit and in flesh.
3. Mantra - combined with intention - increases physical and spiritual benefits. When we combine the physical energy of
mantra, the sound vibration, with the mental energy of intention and attention, we increase, strengthen, and direct the
energetic effect of mantra. Intention, the reason we are saying the mantra, is carried on the physical vibration, producing an
effect. This is the essence of Sanskrit mantra.
4. Mantra energizes prana. Prana is our basic form of life energy that is capable of being transferred between individuals.
Some healers operate through a conscious transfer of prana; a skilled massage therapist, for example, can often transfer
prana with beneficial effect. Self-healing is also possible by concentrating prana in specific organs. When we pronounce a
particular mantra while visualizing an internal organ bathed in light, the power of the mantra can become concentrated in
that organ with great beneficial effect. The act of visualization, in this instance, works as intent, focusing and directing
the energy produced by the mantra.
~~~~~~~~~~~ The Celestial Physician ~~ in Vedic records there are detailed histories of shamans and medicine people.
One such healer in the Hindu tradition was called DHANVANTRE, "the celestial physician." His mantra is used to find a path
to the appropriate healing method for any health problem.
~~~~~~~~~~~ OM SRI DHANVANTRE NAMAHA ~~ pronounced: Om Shree Don-Von-Trey Nahm-Ah-Ha.
In traditional households in southern India, women chant this mantra as they prepare food to infuse it with the powerful healing
vibrations that ward off disease. You can chant this mantra while concentrating upon any condition that you would like remedied
or healed. Remember that healing may be achieved according to traditional medicine, or through some other means altogether.
Be open-minded and do not hold expectations of how the healing will occur.
~~~~~~~~That is all for today. Shared with infinite love for all, Tara. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I never knew about the effects mantras have on us, thanks for sharing...

Hi Zen, I guess you will have to find another ancient culture as old as
the Vedic Mantras, because they are the ones with all the spiritual power
that time has given them. Powerful due to their intent by the sayer, and also
using the names of the Hindu Trinity and their aspects.
For English purposes, you could try - Prayers, Meditations and Dynamic Decrees
put out by The Summit Lighthouse. These are the ones like the Violet Flame
decrees and the protection decree which I love:- ~~
~~~~~Beloved IAM Presence Bright
~~~~~Round me seal your tube of light
~~~~~From Ascended Masters flame
~~~~~Called forth now in God's own name
~~~~~Let it keep my temple free from all discord sent to me.
~~~~~IAM calling forth Violet Fire
~~~~~To blaze and transmute all desire
~~~~~Keeping on in Freedom's name
~~~~~Till IAM One with the Violet Flame.
I am deliberately not posting long, difficult mantras.
I personally like the bija or seed mantras. One-syllable mantras - very powerful.

I often find myself in discussion about Sanskrit with my lovely bride. It seems like there should be effective mantras in any language. Words, sounds of power that have meaning in the language of the speaker.
It just seems a little contrived to me, to have to learn sanskrit in order to access divine power.
I understand the difference in words (and their "meanings") and sounds (with their "vibrations"). I likes my OMmahOMmah breath. I love to sing and feel different notes and tones affect my structure.
I stubbornly call the yoga position, "doggie head up."
My question is, then, are there any mantras that come from language that isn't sanskrit? Does a mantra need to be exotic in order to be effective? Are all the good ones taken? Or could I invent an effective mantra of and for myself?
Is there a fundamental difference between "Sah, Tah, Nah, Ma, Devi" and "Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Ether"?
I am really enjoying your series on Mantras and (despite my rebeliousness) I give em all 'an honest try. Thanks for all you do, Tara.
