MANTRA REIKI (PRANA REIKI)
IntroductionThe Sanskrit word mantra- consists of the root- man- "tothink" (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 correctpronunciation). They are intended to deliver the mind fromillusion and material inclinations. Chanting is the process ofrepeating a mantra (JAPA).A mantra is a thought manifest in, or encapsulated by, asacred utterance that possesses profound spiritualsignificance. They are powerful vibrations., A Mantra issacred and spiritually beneficial. By chanting a mantrarepeatedly with love and devotion a person can becomespiritually illumined. He develops a pure mind, which enableshim to see God.Life is a mixture of known, unknown and mystical. Known isvery limited and the unknown is very vast. We must learn toappreciate the known, work on the unknown and connect tothe areas of Mystery. This will give a sense of wondermentand sense of awe. In this dimension of mystery comes theMantras. They create powerful positive vibrations. This canbe experienced when we visit a sacred place. We feel asense 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 treegrows and wonders so also the mystery ie the invisiblecannot be understood by an ordinary mind filled withnegativities. This is the sensuous mind. Once we drop thesensuous mind and operate from the sacred mind we startexperiencing Godliness. We wear shoes to the feet andwhen we go to a temple or a sacred place we remove the
shoes before entering. We touch the earth with our physicalfeet. We touch our life with psychological foot. The mind alsohas 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 hasto remove all these shoes as they pollute the mind. This iswhere Mantras come to our aid. Chanting mantra promotesharmony and healing on all levels. Mantra can awaken ourspiritual self, connecting us to the source of all power, notonly for personal benefit but also for the good of all others. All mantras have six aspects, a seer or rishi (Mantrashave always come down from master to disciple,beginning with the ancient seers, or rishis), a raga(tone,music), a presiding deity (Devata, a definitive form)seed- its source of potency sound (Bija ), the power heldwithin the mantra (Shakti) and pillar- the will power thatan aspirant must gain (Kilaka).
It is believed that through mantra chanting, one attainsconcentration and focus on the chosen deity or the mainidea of the mantra. One can attain peace of mind quickly bychanting mantra. With constant practice, the inherent powerof the Mantra (Mantra-Shakti) will be awakened, which will fillthe very existence with the Divinity of the Mantra.Mantras help to heal us-(body),help us to understand-(mind)and help to transform and transcend, so they are magical.Feel the Mantra, feel the music of the Mantra, feel thesilence generated. Then transformation happens. Extend thegaps deeply merging in the silence and be sensitive to thesilence. Then Mantra leads you to merge in the silence.
The vibrations produced by right chanting of the mantras isnot directed only to our external environment. It engulfs theentire universe. Thus logically it works both without and
within ourselves constantly transforming us, raising us fromone plane to the next higher.
Mann means the mind, tra means deliveranceTherefore, a spiritual mantra is the pure sound vibration fordelivering the mind from material to spiritual consciousness.This is the goal of any spiritual path. The energy in thesound vibration of the mantra prepares and opens one'sconsciousness to higher levels of reality.
There are varieties of Mantras1 A word power given by a Guru for Meditation toIllumine.2 A prayer to a Deity to fulfill specific desires3 Mantras used for protection and Healing. Gayatri Mantra and the Mahamrutyunjaya Mantras areMaha MantrasThree mantras are beneficial for all aspects of life: theMahamrutyunjaya mantra for health and well being, theGayatri mantra for mental tranquility and wisdom, andthe pranava mantra, Om, for peace and spiritualawakening.The simple yet powerful Mantra, Om or Aum harmonizesthe physical forces with the emotional forces and theintellectual forces. When this happens, you begin to feellike a complete being mentally and physically.Essentially, before existence and beyond existence isonly One reality, Brahman, and the first manifestation ofBrahman in existence is Aum. Aum is considered to bethe most fundamental and powerful mantra, and thus isprefixed and suffixed to all Hindu prayers.
The Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantra is considered to be the"companion" chant to the Gayatri mantra. Whereas theGayatri mantra opens the energy field and empowersthe chanter through feminine energies, the MahaMrutyunjaya mantra moves energies through masculineenergies, instigating new, positive conditions. MahaMrutyunjaya mantra is considered to be a healingmantra that awakens dormant abilities within the onechanting. Where Gayatri cleanses the system, MahaMrutyunjaya strengthens it. Maha Mrutyunjaya workswith masculine energies so that action on the physicalplane may occur. For these reasons, Gayatri and MahaMrutyunjaya are often used in conjunction with oneanother to open the energy field, clear unfavorableconditions, and bring about powerful change, andbalancing of the energies.
