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.
To get married – Lalitham Sadashivam is the mantra.
The mantra Lalitham Sadashivam is good one for marriage. If a marriage has to be done then it can be chanted a lot.
Love pangs, a case study
To heal love pangs – this mantra can be used. It will heal it.
A husband and wife were married for more than 60 years. Around 80 yrs of age, the husband passed away. His wife couldn’t live without him. She went through a lot of suffering, especially due to love pangs.
I gave her “Lalitham Sadashivam”. Now, she’s alright.
Male and Female Balancing
The specialty of this mantra is that for a male person, it will heal their female aspect, while for a female person it will heal their male aspect. Thus, it will balance both the halves of a person.
We usually say there is a “male-female imbalance”. We say that ‘I cannot live without someone’ or ‘I cannot be without them’. You can be without any person in this world. That is the meaning of this mantra because you are complete by yourself.
To realize the truth that “You are total and complete by yourself” is the purpose and greatness of this mantra.
You gave this mantra for marriage, and then you are suggesting that this will help us live without any person in this world!! Marriage means two people living together right? We do not understand.
The mantra means you can live without anyone. But, let us see why it is a good mantra for marriage? It makes the person total and complete. Lalitham Sadashivam – the inner meaning is “Ardha Nareeswara” – a perfect blend of male and female.
The meaning is not that no one should marry. What is marriage? If you are a female, and when you go in search of a male, you will select the right person. This happens because your male-female aspects are in balance.
Right person will come to you. When there are 7 or 8 choices, this mantra will help so that the most-fitting person will become your husband.
We did not have this mantra when we got married. For those who are yet to be married – you have got it now. You are all fortunate to have this mantra.
For marriage purpose “VUM OM YUM, YUM OM VUM” can be chanted.
Marriage not getting fixed even after many efforts
OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHA
If the marriage is not happening even after a long period then chant OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHA. For others you can do concentric method or two circles method connecting each other can be used. For those who could not find a proper match for marriage this mantra is used.
OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHA can be written by all. Writing this way is called as Likita Japam. If you write it in left hand (non-dominant hand) it is even more powerful.
As it is a prosperity mantra it can be used by all. If you do not know the source of money (for prosperity) then you can write this mantra many times. The mantra knows the intention behind your writing – whether it is for money or marriage.
It can be used for removing obstacles also.
Feeling alert after sleep
First we have to increase the fire element for which we can chant OM RAM NAMAHA. While sleeping we suddenly get up. The nature of fire is that it will never go down. But the nature of water is that it will always go down. It will always go towards the pit. For the fire to burn properly good air is required. For that chant Om Yum Namaha. If you chant both the bija mantras “OM RUM NAMAHA OM YUM NAMAHA”, we will become fully awake and we will be alert.
Improve your immunity
OM HOWM VUM JOOM SAHA
This mantra will improve the immunity of the body. It also purifies the atmosphere and it purifies the intra-cellular space. If you do this daily before bed, that place will not get earth quake. Such places will not be affected by earth quake up to 200 meters radius. When you are eating or drinking anything we can chant this mantra. But before eating or drinking anything, chant OM SURYAYA SWAHA, as it will purify the food.
Let the food provide nutrition to your body
OM SURYAYA SWAHA SURYAYA IDHAN NA MAMA – meaning I have offered this to you Oh Sun God and it is not mine. Before eating we have to chant this. Then only the food we eat will give nutrition, health, vitality etc. This can also be chanted when you receive money from somebody. In fact we can use this for whatever we receive from others.
Find the purpose your life
VALLABAM GAJAANANAM YEKA THANTHAM: this will help you to find your aim of your life. You want to come out of your monotonous life routines and find your goal of life. You need to be goal oriented. That is taken care of by Yeka Thantham.
Sometimes people comment “my time is not good”. And some say, “I don’t have enough time”. To find the divine time and make things happen as well as to find time to do your stuff, use this mantra.
For mental strength and will power chant this mantra. Use this mantra to tackle manipulative persons.
Chant the mantra holding a glass of water and give it to children when they fall back to emotional black mailing. Their stubbornness will go.
Achieve your goals and life objectives
HARI NARAYANA GOPALAM
HARI NARAYANA GOVINDAM
GOPALAM GOVINDAM (HEY)
To achieve your goal you require this winning mantra. Gopalam is a friend in need. Like the animal spirit guide Wolf, immediately you will find help. Chant this mantra and do a dance. When you dance, you will forget your body consciousness. To get Sarva Siddhi (super-man type skills) and to accomplish in your life chant this mantra
Do a RAM japa. To fulfill your ambitions, chant this mantra after Hari Narayana Gopalam. It will remove any hurdles that you might come across. The word ‘Ra’ has the power of twelve Suns. It has so much power in it.
Every God has their field day
For Sivarathri we pray to Siva, for Pradosham another deity and so on. On specific days we chant mantras for a specific god. Thus during different days, we chant different mantras. Do we have to say so many mantras or do we have one mantra which takes care of all the gods.
Naran S. Balakumar
We chant mantras based on the trust and love and association we have for a particular god. Different people prefer different gods. This is based on mind of the person. All gods are one and the same. Why so many gods or energies? Each of those gods has a specific purpose behind them.
Of course there is one mantra that gives the benefit of chanting mantras for all gods. It is the mantra, “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. If we take bija mantras for all mantras, then they are present inside this mantra. Combination of all characters of mantras pertaining to all Gods is found in this mantra.
Ego creeps in
Whatever mantra you say then immediately you get attached yourself to deity. You feel proud that you have done so much. However, while doing a Japam, it should remove my ego too. There is no flaw in the mantras. But mantra should have the capability to shed our ego. Hare Rama Hare Krishna can do that for us. Nothing else is needed. That doesn’t mean we need not go away from mantras for other Gods.
Get a total satisfaction
People have attained Siddhis or liberation with all the mantras. Why then Hare Rama Hare Krishna mantra has a special place? If you chant Hare Rama Hare Krishna mantra, then you get the satisfaction that you get by chanting all the mantras. You feel complete because you have not missed out any.
Earlier, I use one leg to get climb the stairs to attend the classes of Naran. After chanting Hare Ram Hare Krishna mantra, I could use both the legs. My knees are so much better.

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.
