Why mantras are so special? If there are no sounds then there is no world. Sound alone can create structure or a form based on the principle of sympathetic resonance. If you tune one tuning fork or a crystal bowl, then the one next to it will also resonate in the same frequency. So sound is important to our lives. It has created the world — how so many things it has created! Our ancestors have found out that our Chakras – the energy centres or wheels of energy are responsive to specific sounds called as Bija mantras. Bija means seed. It can influence the DNA of the matter inside us. When all the chakras open up harmoniously, things will happen for us automatically – with least of our efforts. Sound doesn’t know anything. It just works for good or bad based on the nature of the mantras. Like there are good mantras, there are harmful mantras too. They will work in a harmful way. Therefore, be careful about using them! Functioning of Mantras For mantras, all problems are one and the same. They don’t differentiate serious problems from smaller problems. A mantra that works for one problem will work for similar types of problems – whether they are big or small. Thus God’s ways are simple. Bhajans are nothing but Namas or a string of Mantras. Bhajans are one way of directly talking to god and relating the god within oneself. So it’s good to sing the Bhajans loudly. There need not be any shyness in chanting the Namas. Speciality of Namas is, each of them work with different parts of the body. Kesava mantra, acts on Hara chakra. Kesavam Narayanam is a cleansing mantra. Madavam Madavan activates both right and left hemispheres of the brain. If you chant Madavam Madavan there won’t be any paralysis. Healing Through Mantras There are many mantras available to us. Based on the situation we had to chant the appropriate mantra. Keep chanting them until the problem is solved. To heal others put their name in a piece of paper, keep it on the left hand and chant the mantras. Preferably chant during the beginning of the day and then later before going to sleep.
