Significance of Mantras
What are the values for the mantras chanting?
If we go on chant mantras continuously, as the power of sound is more than the power of light, we will reap lots of benefits.
The mantras can be chanted innumerable number of times and there is no limit for chanting.
When you do it for a specific purpose you can stop the chanting after achieving the result.
It can be chanted within oneself within your mind but at least in the class chant louder.
If you chant loudly it is definitely effective but if we chant loudly other people will make fun of us.
However, Let us be mad persons in the eyes of others.
Effectiveness of Mantras
Mantras which are effective in the body means they are effective in the mind also.
If any mantra is effective in the mind then spiritual elevation would be there too.
Thus, mantras have a prominent role in our lives.
Don’t attach Religion to Mantras
There is no religion attached to Mantras.
They are only words which has got a sympathetic resonance with the body.
So people from any religion/caste like Christians or Muslims can also chant them.
When you are criticized and blamed
To protect ourselves from others’ anger and criticism and to ignore others’ criticism chant the mantra “OM JOOM SAHA SAHA JOOM OM”. Instead of reacting with anger, chant the mantra, which protects you against evil eye too.

Pull the wedges between fingers in both the hands, while you chant the mantra. Then all the internal organs are massaged and youthfulness is bought back.
Why should we vocalise the mantras?
We talk about spirituality only in words. We don’t follow it fully. We are not ready to experience the effect of it. How? By feeling shy to chant the mantras loudly in front of others, we don’t get the full of effect.
To experience it we have to chant the mantras loudly. While chanting mantras behave like a mad person, by continuously chanting the mantras loudly. You have to merge with mantra. You become one with mantra. Form a relationship with them.
Question: “Books tell us to chant the mantras silently”.
Naran: When we say it loudly, then we chant the mantras with concentration (Sabda Brahman Nada Brahmam). If you say mantras loudly, your mind becomes ineffective. Though, immediately it can’t happen. It will eventually go away. So chant it loudly. The whole body has to vibrate. All cells inside the body have to vibrate too. The mind will become silent. Then the inner mind will start chanting. Straightway it is not possible to make it happen. So start vocalising the mantras. Chant like a mad person. Even in sleep it has to happen. We will start in this Janma even though we require many Janmas. So let us start somewhere.
When do we chant?
When the problem comes we don’t think and we can’t remember relevant mantras to handle the problem. Our mind is not conditioned enough. Therefore, to condition the mind, we have to chant during normal times, so that no untoward incidents will happen. By filling up the mind with divine energy through mantras, no bad incidents can happen to us.
Problems come and problems go. But, we have to stabilise ourselves. That doesn’t mean we have to be a sage all the time. Weep when you have to but regain the composure. You can get that with help of mantras. This is the only way we can keep ourselves engaged with divinity. The trust should come so that nothing bad will happen to us.
Using Mantra Water
Water will absorb mantra’s energies better. Chant a mantras 100 times while holding a glass of water and give the water to children as they won’t chant. The Japam you are doing is of no use if there is no water or earth – in the form of Vibhuddi or Kumkum, while chanting. All mantras work with water. Anything spoken to water will be absorbed by it. Do chanting of the mantras either for 108 times or chant them for duration of 5 to 10 minutes. No specific time is required.
Don’t Curse While You Cook
That’s why when you cook, don’t curse, because the food – as it contains water to cook, will absorb it.
Label the water bottle with the mantra. The water will absorb it. In addition to that, do chanting as well.
