Mantras are energy in words.
A complex science of sounds, words, and syllables that requires an activation through initiation.
Once the practitioner receives an initiation to a mantra and works with it, he or she can connect with a specific force of the universe and awaken it within their being.
Mantra can both create and effect energy. With the help of mantras, we affect our entire being of all the levels – physical, energetical, emotional, mental and causal-karmic.
There are two kinds of Mantras – long mantras and short mantras, which are also called Bija (seed) Mantras.
– Bija Mantras are made of a single syllable and are the seed; the key that opens a specific energy of the universe.
– Long Mantras are a combination of Bija mantras or words and they are a more complex way to work and awaken specific energies.
The Long Mantras can also be sentences that have a meaning and then they can be also used on the path of devotion,
where we take those mantras that are actual words and have an emotional meaning for us, and we use them while singing or in silent repetition like a prayer.
Mantras can be used audibly, under voice or in silent internal repetition.
