All You Need to Know About Mantras

What is a Mantra? 

Have you heard people chanting ‘Om” or “Sat Nam”? If you have, then you know what a mantra is. A “mantra” is a sacred utterance, a short syllable or word(s) taken from any language believed to have religious and spiritual significance, mostly Sanskrit, Pali, English. 

In India, these mantras originated in Hinduism and Buddhism and people have been practicing chanting them for thousands of years irrespective of their varied religious backgrounds. Several civilizations around the world, such as Greeks, Egyptians, Zoroastrian’s chant mantras for ages as a way to reconnect with themselves spiritually. 

Did you know, the mantra ‘Om’ is said to be the first sound that originated on Earth, making it extremely powerful. Many practitioners believe that mantras have the power to bring about a change in a person’s spiritual state. 

The Science Behind Mantras 

There are hundreds of mantras, each activating a certain kind of energy within different parts of the body. If done with all awareness, the constant repetition of the mantra creates vibration and that slowly drives away all distractions and brings you to a state of clarity and calmness, free of any distractions. Chanting a mantra daily hence allows your mind to experience peacefulness within.  

Imagine this – a little anger or frustration leads to stress and negativity in daily life. Think about the positivity the mantras release through sounds, making the atmosphere all positive! 

Benefits of Mantras 

You might be wondering, “How can chanting a word repeatedly benefit me?” The answer is simple. Mantras positively influence the body and mind - the temple of life. Many studies conducted by modern scientists today have proved that the ancient mantras play a significant role in a person’s well-being. Interestingly, a study conducted on Indian athletes by Dr. Priti Lal in collaboration with Sadhguru’s Isha Foundation revealed that there was an increased awareness of athletes regarding their hydration levels when they chanted the mantra – “ Om” – regularly. 

Mantras are also known for soothing any nerves and an unsettling mind. They have also shown verifiable improvement in brain functioning and reducing stress by pushing away all negative vibes that makes a person repulsive. 

 Mantras to Start Your Day 

Since ancient times, mantras are a spiritual way to calm your body and mind. But in the twenty-first century and with the evolution from studies, mantras have now come to mean self-affirmations or positive affirmations that empower us to manage stress and draw courage to face the day. Some of the mantras you can use to start your day are: 

  1. Om
  2. Om Namah Shivaya
  3. Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha
  4. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo
  5. Gayatri Mantra
  6.  I can face anything.
  7. I am fearless.
  8. I am conquering my fears and starting a new day.
  9. My mind is brilliant. My body is healthy. My spirit is tranquil.
  10. Where I am right now is where I need to be.
  11. I have a purpose.
