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.
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.
