"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." Rudyard Kipling
"In the beginning was the Word ..." (John, 1:1)
Word can make you cry or laugh, can cause aggression or bring peace and pacification. Thus, the words of the great poetic works have energy that causes a wonderful impact on millions of people for whole centuries.
Words, that have a special kind of cosmic energy, are called mantras. Mantra – a holy sound, syllable, word with a deep sacred sense. Energy that carries mantra affects the consciousness, mind, body, the destiny of a man. The science of mantras, which is the basis of esoteric teachings of the East, opens the way to harmony, health, self-knowledge and prosperity. The base “man” in the Sanskrit word “mantra” comes from the first syllable of the word “manna” – “thinking, mind”; and “tra” means “to protect” or “to liberate”. Thus, mantra is something that frees mind from ignorance, obscuration and bad attachments. Sanskrit is the sacred language and each letter of its alphabet has cosmic properties. There are mantras for treatment, gaining wealth, good luck, mantra of love, knowledge, enlightenment and other spheres of life. The more often mantra is repeated, the greater force it takes.
In Vedic tradition it is believed that all Vedas, the entire Universe and all the creatures came from Om. Om is the most important mantra. Chanting “Om” eliminates mundane illusory thoughts, adjusts the internal state for the concentration “inside”.” Om” is the vibration of creation; “Om” gives an opportunity to immerse in initial mental state, to realize oneself as a part of God.
The clarity of our speech affects what is happening in our lives. Try to analyze your everyday language and style of communication!
Negativity that is often expressed in words is an impulse that brings negative events in our lives. During abuse, scandal, saying harsh words, we give “a body” to this negativity. In other words, everything we say materializes. We shouldn’t let the negative words become our “mantras”.
Let’s be more tolerant to each other! Om Shanti!
