A mantram is short spiritual formula to reach the highest being – the One Self. It uses the power of words – like spells – to create a union with the essence of the self . Prayers, meditation and mantras turn the awareness – consciousness, spirit, everything – to the inner being – to God. It is always one self – it is self – awareness.
Some of the most known traditional mantras are:
Om mani padme hum - Empathy with All
Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha – gone, gone, all is gone – be joyfull
Asato Ma Sat Gamayo – Lead me from the unreal to the real
SO-HAM - I AM who I AM
5. Verse of the Seven Verses
Sarwe te wilayam yanti
Mithya kalaha karinah
Because of ignorance, prejudice or selfishness some people interpret things wrongly
and proclaim that theirs is the only truth and others are wrong.
People who indulge in such dry discussions will be without power.
Prayers in the Christian Tradition also uses mighty words to reach God:
Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison
an all the prayers that touch the heart – in all cultures.
My favourite mantrams are
I know and I am ready to receive the answer
Circumstances don’t matter. Only my state of being matters.
