Hindu Mantras

Post by Laura on 03.02.09 20:10

I am reading a book on Hindu mantras by Dr. Kailash Vajpeyi. There are many points in the book I would like to discus and know everyone’s opinion on….



First, the book talks about the power of spoken words, and then begins to talk about different sounds and some energy vibrations. The way I see it, Ohm (om or any of the other spelling that exist for it) is a vibration not a word, it makes one’s energy vibrate at a higher frequency, and that is why (I think) it helps reach a level of enlightment.



Then, speaks about the power of the actual words in a mantra, like if the words on their own are going to do all of the magick and all we have to do is say them (many, many, many, many times, and count the time we are saying them). The way I see it is, the words just help focus our will and energy, it’s just having something to keep our mind and energy focused in and not drift away.



The book also mentions that some mantras are more powerful than others because they have been said and used many times by many people. (I really do not know why this is but if it is true it gives me ideas of how to empower some of my own mantras).



Finally, the book talks about how some words work better than others. But after saying the words out loud many times I noticed that it is because they make the energy vibrate in a different manner, kind of like the Kheperu mantra.



The book talks about mantras being feminine, masculine, asexual, happy, sad, fire, earth, and stuff like that. I still have not figured that part out, when I do I will probably post about it. On the other hand I have also found a lot of superstitions in the book, like having to spray the place where you are meditating with water from the Ganges, having to use certain mantras according to the first letter of your name or having to see what nostril the air is coming out of… if anyone can make any sense out of that I would like that.

I
am reading a book on Hindu mantras by Dr. Kailash Vajpeyi. There are
many points in the book I would like to discus and know everyone’s
opinion on….




First,
the book talks about the power of spoken words, and then begins to talk
about different sounds and some energy vibrations. The way I see it,
Ohm (om or any of the other spelling that exist for it) is a vibration
not a word, it makes one’s energy vibrate at a higher frequency, and
that is why (I think) it helps reach a level of enlightment.




Then,
speaks about the power of the actual words in a mantra, like if the
words on their own are going to do all of the magick and all we have to
do is say them (many, many, many, many times, and count the time we are
saying them). The way I see it is, the words just help focus our will
and energy, it’s just having something to keep our mind and energy
focused in and not drift away.




The
book also mentions that some mantras are more powerful than others
because they have been said and used many times by many people. (I
really do not know why this is but if it is true it gives me ideas of
how to empower some of my own mantras).




Finally,
the book talks about how some words work better than others. But after
saying the words out loud many times I noticed that it is because they
make the energy vibrate in a different manner, kind of like the Kheperu

OM is Aum the Sanskrit variation of Egyptian deity Amon, which to me is 'the' Primordial Vibration born from the Waters of Nun (Abyss)

Mantras work on the subconscious, which is where Majik dwells in us. Mantram is a huge subject unto itself.



The
book also mentions that some mantras are more powerful than others
because they have been said and used many times by many people. (I
really do not know why this is but if it is true it gives me ideas of
how to empower some of my own mantras).

Definitely, the Word used to be empowerment. Egyptian musician priests (like the real Ankhhape) were very careful as to what they said, any negative intent was to be avoided for this exact reasoning, negative 'vibes' clung together like the Qliphoth.
You can clearly see what has become of this World we live in, nothing but negative vibes ruling and overcoming us.



Finally,
the book talks about how some words work better than others. But after
saying the words out loud many times I noticed that it is because they
make the energy vibrate in a different manner, kind of like the Kheperu
mantra.

Like the simple Mantra OM, when properly done the sound vibration stimulates the Chakras.
The forgotten languages worked in this exact way . . . the languages of the Gods?

I am also curious about the idea of mantras being masculine, feminine, asexual, etc. I agree with the notion that mantras help us focus our energy and will to prevent drifting away.

As far as monitoring your breath and from which nostril it is exhaled, I think that may have something to do with Kundalini. It may relate to balancing the channels of energy within the body. Breath coming from the left nostril is considered cool, and is linked with the channel called Ida. Ida is associated with feminine and lunar energies. Breath coming from the right nostril is masculine, hot, and solar, and is connected to the channel called Pingala. Sushumna is the central channel in the body. I think mantras are used to naturally awaken and balance the Kundalini. Please chime in to correct and elaborate on this information.

Interesting information... I did not know this. Thanks for explaining and feel free to develop.
