What are the Bija mantras?
They are: Om Lum Namaha, Om Vum Namaha, Om Rum Namaha, Om Yum Namaha, Om Hum Namaha
All these five Bija mantras are chanted in the order mentioned. They go to the source of problems. Sometime even after taking so many different medicines a disease will not be cured. At that time, if the Bija mantras are chanted in this order continuously, they will heal the issue.
How can we use Bija Mantras
The mantras can be chanted over a glass of water, say about 100 times and can be given to the person who has a problem.
If we want to balance this centre (or your house) we can chant these mantras.
For us, to balance our chakras this mantra will be helpful.
Bija mantras activate our chakras
The chakras have petals. Basic chakra has 4 petals, the Hara chakra has 6, solar plexus has 10, heart chakra has 12, and throat chakra has 16 petals. When we chant Bija mantras, the petals of chakras open up to receive the energy. So we can chant the mantras any number of times.
Chakras are connected to our body organs
Each and every chakra is connected to the organs/glands and some life issues attached to them. When you chant these Bija mantras continuously the organs, glands and life issues are healed. Do not chant them separately because all these Bija mantras form a cycle.
It is better to chant them together in the right order. Because the moment you chant Lum, immediately the next chakra (Hara) readies itself for its mantra as it expects that its own mantra (Vum) will be chanted next.
In addition, the moment one chakra is activated simultaneously the other chakras are also activated too. In the same way, if one chakra has a problem then all the other chakras will also have problems too. So it is better to chant all the Bija mantras in the order mentioned.
The mantra “Ravi Kiran Ruchi Karan Paripooranan” heals Tamo guna, i.e., laziness, lethargy, and procrastination.
Stability in office
This mantra is for stability. When you are not sure of the position in the office or when you are afraid you will be transferred, this mantra will help.
To open the eyes of one, who is going on wrong path, this mantra can be used.
Loss in business
This mantra is also for abundance. That is, it will stop the loss. If we keep chanting this, for any loss-making business, it will stem the loss. Then profitability would start coming and business will become stable.
Going on the wrong path
Question: When someone is going on wrong path, can we chant for the person – to open their eyes? Can we just say their name and chant this for them?
Yes, that is right. That is all we can do. Or you can also chant over a glass of water and give to that person.
This mantra is based on Bhagavat Geetha, 16th chapter, 23rdSloka. Though, you cannot find this meaning in any of the commentaries. This is the mantra that makes a person go on the right path.

What do I have to chant to become emotionally independent of a particular person?
Take the Bach Flower Remedies, “Chicory” and “Walnut”. Along with that, chant the mantra, “Guru Gugan Kodi Kodi Lavanyam”
Getting surrounded with loving people
This mantra opens up our heart. When the heart is open, you will invite only loving people and kind people in your life. You will be surrounded by loving people.
If anybody thinks he is forsaken, abandoned, loveless, and think ‘Nobody is there for me, I love so many, but nobody loves me’, then this mantra will be of help. How? This mantra makes you love yourself. When our heart, bubbles with joy and love, then honest and kind people are attracted to us.
Release Unwanted Emotions
YAM is the one that can drive out unwanted emotions. Release it. By chanting YAM alone, our anger, sadness and worry can be driven away.
The VAM is present in Lavanyam (after you remove A, N and Y). It is the bija mantra for the Hara centre, which channels true love then. True emotions will be channelled, because of Vum. It brings out true emotions of love.
The mantra brings the true love from heart. Who is the guru inside your heart? Atman is the guru in the heart. Heart centre is also known as Anahata. It contains an infinite sound within it. The ataman in the heart centre is in the form of infinite sound, which is also the primordial sound.
Thus this particular mantra release unwanted emotions from you, gives you love within yourself.
Heal the Loveless Life
Now a day the parents feel that their children living in foreign countries don’t love them anymore and feel loveless. In the same way, those without children feel loveless too. This mantra will make them love themselves better.
The heat need not go to anywhere to find heat. Water doesn’t need anything else to quench itself. When the atman is activated with love, in the form of a ray of light, in the tunnel of your heart, then you don’t need to go anywhere for love. This mantra creates millions and millions of rays of light of love inside the heart.
GUGAN is the one word which transmits love from heart to our organs. In addition, our entire auric field will be filled with love.
Chant the mantra seriously
That atman or guru will come and stay in our hearts permanently.
You should chant this mantra in a manner that tears should come down the cheek. Why? Atman is not an ordinary person. It is part of Divine and full of love. In such an instance, when you have so much love in your heart, it should come out as tears.
You need not have a relationship with others. Have a relationship with yourself. “We have to relate with ourselves only”, is the message of this mantra.

Healing chakras through mantras
Let us first see the purpose and functioning of chakras as well as what happens if they don’t function properly. In the next section, we shall see what mantras we need to chant to keep them in good order.
Functioning of Various Chakras
Basic chakra or Mooladhara – is at the base of the coccyx.
If I have a feeling, “I want to settle down in life”, then it means the Basic chakra is not working properly. Therefore the energy from basic chakra to you will be very less too. Chakras always produce energy. In this person’s case, it shows he hasn’t received it properly from chakras.
Another in front of us, one and half-inch below the naval is Hara Chakra or the Sex Chakra.
If there is a relationship, then it’s formed due to Hara chakra – which directs us towards friendship and creates the relationship for us. If you have a craving for lot of food then it means your sex chakra is working more – imbalanced.
Third chakra is above the belly – Manipura or Solar Plexus chakra. This is the chakra of self-identity. There is a big gap between Hara and Manipura chakras.
If energy in solar plexus is more than it means the feeling of “I” or ego is more. Anything might go from us, except for pride and ego – which comes from the Solar Plexus chakra. Thanks to this chakra we know the purpose of our lives and it shows our identity too.
The fourth is the Heart chakra. Between it and the Solar Plexus chakra, the gap is less. Heart and solar plexus chakras are close to each other. The former is our soul and the latter is our mind.
If there is no ego and pride, then heart will open up. The heart chakra is always reminding us not to have pride and ego. “Don’t think I or me, but think about we and ours” – is the message of solar plexus chakra. One can change their ego and pride into a life of compassion through heart chakra, which makes us to be in love.
When we have love, our language will be made of love and compassion and expressed through our Throat Chakra.
In reality, we will talk about few things, while hiding so many things. If we think only good things then the throat will expand and then whatever we say will become a mantra.
Our lives are decided by these chakras. When these chakras are healed, and function properly, then the sixth chakra – the third eye chakra will open automatically.
When the third eye chakra is open, one will come to know that he is already divine.
Opening Chakras through Mantras
Mantras outwardly look ordinary. However, they can do lots of things. It can lead us to live our lives better. They activate the energy centres/chakras as well. Chant the mantras below to activate, normalize and balance the chakras:
Om Lum Namaha – Basic Chakra
Om Vum Namaha – Hara Chakra
Om Rum Namaha – Solar Plexus Chakra
Om Yum Namaha – Heart Chakra
Om Hum Namaha – Throat Chakra
When other chakras open, the third eye will automatically open up.
