Final Comments on Mantras

Mantras are a part of my life. If you would like to pursue this subject, I highly recommend the book "Healing Mantras" by Thomas Ashley-Farrand. He covers mantras for attracting love, changing physical and planetary karma, health, mastering fear, abundance and prosperity, self-improvement and working with planetary energies. When we are open-minded to exploring new tools, we can remove attachments and issues that have plagued us since before birth. There is also a mantra to remove unwanted entities attached to you or your home environment. I would suggest chanting, Om Nama Shivaya. (om nah-mah shee-vah-yah) Shiva is consciousness in an expanded and powerful state of being and accomplishment. Christians remove unwanted visitors in the name of Jesus. They can also be removed by the power of Shiva. A statement you could use: May the spirits that are earthbound in this area leave and never return, by the order of Shiva. I have offered this suggestion because it appears that more and more people are being bothered by unwanted entities. You can only remove them if you are ready to let go of them.

If you choose to do mantras, you will experience spiritual change. Mantras work regardless if you have been initiated by a teacher or not. Sounds are directly linked to the activities of the chakras. Each case is unique. There are many traditions who use mantras: Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Chinese Buddhism, mainstream Buddhism, and Tibetan Buddhism. What and how you use them is totally up to you and what the package called your self needs at the time.

According to Vedic cosmology, there are seven luminous spheres of light. Each successive sphere or realm is much more spiritually advanced and sublime than the previous one. If you have read Dante's, The Divine Comedy, it is very similar. As we spiritually develop as humans, we eventually rejoin or consciously merge with God. The Gayatri Mantra is considered the essence of all mantras because it is a simple meditation on spiritual light. I will type the pronunciation for the short form. (Om boo Boo Vah Hah Swah Ha Om Taht Sah Vee Toor Vahr Ehn Yum
Bhahr Go Deh Vahs Yah Dee Mah Hee Dee Yoh Yohn Ah Ha Prah Choh Dah Yaht)
If this is too long and complicated for you simply state, "O Self-effulgent Light that has given birth to all the spheres of consciousness, who is worthy of worship and appears through the orbit of the Sun, illumine our intellect." We have a destiny of service for the planet and her inhabitants. The greater the numbers of those who choose to serve, the easier for humanity as a whole to advance.
