I came to know about your blog on Aug 15 2013. I saw one switch word combination, “MOVE ON FIND COUNT DIVINE JOB” for getting a job. I started chanting it from Aug 15 itself.
Then I sent you a mail with my job problem and you replied with “QUITE CLEAR” Mantra on 25th of Aug 2013. I chanted that too. Yes, I did chanting it, very much all the time.
Also, I used to chant Ambika Anaadhi…Mantra before interviews. And then the magic happened. On 28 Aug I got two offers. I have accepted one of the offers and joined the company, just 2 days back.
Your guidance has been like Divine guidance for me. I have got this job after 1.5 years. Alas, I could not find your blog before! Thanks to You!! Also, thanks to GOD!!!
Now, I am chanting “Lalitham Sridharam, Lalitham Baskaram…” Mantra, since I have debt of 10 Lakhs because of my divorce settlement and unemployment. Please advise if it’s the right mantra to clear off my debt and remain employed.
“LALITHAM SRIDHARAM, LALITHAM BASKARAM, LALITHAM SUDARSHANAM” mantra will give you light and source of good income.
Lalitham – the one mother who is so compassionate, that she will forgive all my past. Forgiving all the past she allows Sridharam (wealth), to bring money from Baskaram – the provider of wealth, and activates Sudarshnam, to continue the flow of money (after the debts are paid-off).
Bow down to the (Lalitham) Mother in reverence and chant the mantra. And when you chant this powerful mantra, chant it with all the trust in divine, without expecting anything in return.
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.
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.
