Sanskrit Mantras: Sanskrit mantras only have an approximate, language based translation. The only true definition is the experience that chanting the mantra creates in the individual who chants it. Pronouncing a mantra creates a particular physical vibration in the form of sound. This sound produces an actual effect in the physical and subtle bodies. The effects of the energy then come to be recognized within the body as the meaning, but not in the shallower way our language has meaning.

Sanskrit is a natural language, that is, it is an energy based language rather than a meaning based language. The sounds are not artificial derivations. They have meaning in and of themselves.

Seed Sounds: Seed sound mantras don’t even have direct translations; rather, they are their own meanings. For example: Chanting dum (pronounced like a clipped 'doom') exorcises and protects one from external negative influences; the sound kreem, over time, destroys negative ego qualities; the seed sound shreem creates abundance in alignment with the intentions, in the life of whomever chants it.

Other than the Crown, the other six chakras each have their own seed sounds and from the bottom, up, they are: lam (Root - earth), vam (Sacrum - water), ram (Solar Plexus - fire), yam (heart - air), ham (Throat - ether), om (Brow - mind). Om is the seed sound that serves as the prefix for most generally chanted mantras.

Chanting: Chanting Sanskrit mantras resonate the petals of one's chakras and affect positive change in a systematic way. Combined with attention and intention, these sounds can be a very powerful tool. Chanting them eventually quiets the mind - subconscious waves of thought that exist throughour the body give way and become absorbed and stilled due to the power of the mantra; the circulation of life energy (prana) in the body is energized; karma is lessened - that which is written can be unwritten.

Two ways to productively experiment with any particular mantra:
1) Using a mala of 108 beads to count, for 40 days consecutively, chant the mantra 108 times in the morning and 108 times at night in the same peaceful, increasingly positively energized location; and/or
2) Without the use of a mala, commit to chanting the mantra for 40 days in a row as much as possible as you go about your day - out loud when you can; silently when you cannot.

AUM is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel. Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception. It is the core of our very existence. If you think of AUM only as a sound, a technique or a symbol of the Divine, you will miss it altogether. Om is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe. It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.
~ Amit Ray, AUM Chanting and Meditation

Aum is the most primordial, most authentic original expression of supreme consciousness.

This symbol is known as the Aumkara” or simply “AUM”. Although written in English with two letters it is a three syllable phrase:
A (Vaishvanara), deep in the abdomen. then the tongue rolls on the
U (Hiranyagarbha), and the lips close on the
M (Ishvara), which in the Vedic tradition are symbolic of creation, preservation and destruction and associated gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Known as the “three syllable Veda” it is a mantra and an invocation and name of God.

This sacred syllable is older even than hinduism or the vedic traditions of India. It originates with the Indo-European invaders from the north about 7500 years ago,

It is translates in some traditions as “I am”. The exact translation of the Hebrew word “Yahweh” also the “name” of God and which also means “I am”.

Aum refers to the awakened, the dreamer and the sleeper. It refers to past, present, and future. It is all.

It became the sacred word “hum” of the Tibetans, “amin” of Islam, and “maat” of the Egyptians and “amen” Greeks, Romans, and Christians. It is part and parcel of the sacred name of that which from which we all spring. “Ama” means “love” in the ancient Indo-European tongues. It is also at the root for the word “mother”.

It is also at the root of the words for “eye” and “see”. It is the first word spoken by infants and the first word for which we have record. It is the last word uttered by the dying with the expiration of their final breath.

It is nothing less than the sacred prehistoric name of God.

I use it with reverence. I use it with grace. It is a word of power.

The Universality of Aum
Place this salt in water and bring it here tomorrow morning". The boy did.
“Where is that salt?” his father asked?
“I do not see it.”
“Sip here. How does it taste?”
“Salty, father.”
“And here? And there?”
“I taste salt everywhere.”
“It is everywhere, though we see it not. Just so, dear one, the Self is everywhere, within all things, although we see it not. There is nothing that does not come from it. It is the truth; it is the Self supreme. You are that, Shvetaketu

Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti Aum

Pray for those who need relief, safety, compassion, peace, and healing. Pray for those in London and Syria and wherever you feel moved to do so. For yogis, it is customary to end our prayers by extending them to all and everyone who may have been forgotten. We say: May all beings in all worlds know peace, freedom, and happiness without exception. No one is left out, no one is left behind, and you yourself are included. Because we are part of the problem, we are also part of the solution.

Soham Asmi

Sohamasmi is a mantra from the Isa Upanishad, meaning : Even when I pray, I am You. Even when I am You, I pray to You.

Purnameva Vashisyate

This is a mantra of the most significant statements ever made anywhere on earth at any time. The mantra contains the whole secret of the mystic approach towards life. This small mantra contains the essence of the Upanishadic vision. Nothing is insignificant, nothing is smaller than anything else. The part represents the whole just as the seed contains the whole.
~ Osho

As above, so below. As within, so without. As the universe, so the soul.
~ Hermes Trismegistus

INFINITE O Almighty! You are the infinite; the universe is also infinite! From infinite the infinite has come out! Having taken infinite out of the infinite, the Infinite remains! O Almighty! May there be Peace always!

Purnat Purnamudachyate                                                              This is the Whole.

Purnameva Vashisyate                                                         Wholeness still remains.
Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti Vashisyate            Aum Peace Peace Peace Always.

This is a Shanti mantra (peace invocation) and appears primarily in Isha Upanishad) or many times called Ishavasya Upanishad (one of the primeval Upanishads). This mantra is commonly chanted as a prayer before the study of Upanishad begins.

That is the Whole. This is the Whole. Wholeness emerges from Wholeness. Wholeness still remains. Aum Peace Peace Peace Always.

THAT means the infinitude out there. THIS means the infinitude herein.

THAT is infinite, THIS is infinite; From That, This comes. THIS added or removed from THAT, the Infinite remains. Om, peace, peace, peace

You are the fullness. There is fullness, here is fullness. From the fullness, the fullness is born. Remove the fullness from the fullness and the fullness alone still remains.

That is complete. This is complete. From the completeness comes the completeness. If completeness is taken away from completeness, Only completeness remains

Aum, That (Outer World) is full with Divine Consciousness. This (Inner World) is also full with Divine Consciousness; From Fullness comes Fullness. Taking Fullness from Purna, Fullness indeed remains. Om Peace, Peace, Peace.

Aum, the Brahma is infinite, whole and complete. That is full, this also is full. This fullness came from that fullness. Though this fullness comes from that fullness, that fullness remains forever full.

Nama Mantras

The name given by parents is a proof of death. The name (mantra) given by the Guru is proof in itself of the Guru's word. He gives the mantra to the consciousness that listens. It reminds you of your true identity (Sat Nam). It calls you as you are in Reality and it very powerful and effective. My Guru gave me this mantra and the result is all these visitors from all over the world.
Meditate in such a way that you even forget that you are meditating. Truth will reveal itself when one forgets oneself. We are not what we know. We are prior to knowing. One who has understood this has no need to sit in meditation

Mul Mantra

ek ong kaar sat nam karta purkh nirbhao nirvair akal moort ajuni sai bhang gur Prasad jap aad sach jugaad sach hai bhee sach nanak hose bhee sach

There is Only One God. His Name is True. He is the Creator. Without Fear. Without Hate. Ominipresent. Free from Birth and Death. Self-Illuminating. Realized through the Grace of the True Guru. Meditate upon His Name. For He was True when Time Began. He has been True since the Ages. He is still True. Guru Nanak says He will forever be True.

One Creator. One Universe, Truth is His name. Doer of everything. Fearless, Revengeless, Undying, Unborn, Self illumined. The Guru's gift, Meditate! True in the beginning. True through all the ages. True even now. Oh Nanak it is forever true!

The Mul Mantra is the root mantra from which a spiritual foundation is built. The Guru is based upon the concepts of the Mul Mantra. The Mul Mantra is a fate killer. It removes the fate and changes the destiny to complete prosperity. The Mul Mantra as such He is one, He is Ongkar, the supreme truth. He is the creator, the Universe, beyond fear, beyond rancor. He is the timeless form, never born, self-creating. He was truth before the ages and as time ran its course. Nanak says now is he truth eternal and forever will he be.
