Learn about Mantra Reiki:
The Sanskrit word mantra- consists of the root- man- “to think” (also manas “mind”) and the –tra- meaning, tool, hence a literal translation would be “instrument of thought”. Mantras are interpreted to be effective as sound (vibration), to the effect that great emphasis is put on correct pronunciation). They are intended to deliver the mind from illusion and material inclinations. Chanting is the process of repeating a mantra (JAPA).
A mantra is a thought manifest in, or encapsulated by, a sacred utterance that possesses profound spiritual significance. They are powerful vibrations., A Mantra is sacred and spiritually beneficial. By chanting a mantra repeatedly with love and devotion a person can become spiritually illumined. He develops a pure mind, which enables him to see God.
Life is a mixture of known, unknown and mystical. Known is very limited and the unknown is very vast. We must learn to appreciate the known, work on the unknown and connect to the areas of Mystery. This will give a sense of wonderment and sense of awe. In this dimension of mystery comes the Mantras. They create powerful positive vibrations. This can be experienced when we visit a sacred place. We feel a sense of calmness and get drowned into that vibration.
Mantras help to unlock mysteries which logic cannot explain. It is like a child cannot understand how from a seed the tree grows and wonders so also the mystery ie the invisible cannot be understood by an ordinary mind filled with negativities. This is the sensuous mind. Once we drop the sensuous mind and operate from the sacred mind we start experiencing Godliness. We wear shoes to the feet and when we go to a temple or a sacred place we remove the shoes before entering. We touch the earth with our physical feet. We touch our life with psychological foot. The mind also has certain shoes. They are kama (desires), krodha (anger),lobha(greed),moha(lust),mada,(arrogance),matsalya .(jeleasy) . in order to operate from the sacred mind one has to remove all these shoes as they pollute the mind. This is where Mantras come to our aid. Chanting mantra promotes harmony and healing on all levels. Mantra can awaken our spiritual self, connecting us to the source of all power, not only for personal benefit but also for the good of all others.
