You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts; And when you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart. You live in your lips, and sound is a diversion and a pastime.” - Kahlil Gibran

God has been everlastingly working in Silence, unobserved, unheard, except by those who experience His Infinite Silence.” - Meher Baba

Sacred Sound

In the beginning was sound. After all, God had to SAY: "Let there be Light". Sound is the all pervading primary mechanism of creation.

080316u The science of sound is ancient, and for humans a good place to begin is with the language of Sanskrit. Sanskrit is a natural language, that is, it is an energy based language rather than a meaning based language. The sounds have meaning in and of themselves; they're not arbitrary derivations like almost all the rest of our planet's human languages have become.

The only true definition is the experience that chanting the mantra creates in the individual who chants it. Pronouncing a mantra creates a particular physical vibration in the form of sound. This sound produces an actual effect in the physical body and in the subtle bodies. The effects of the energy then come to be recognized within the body as the meaning, but not in the shallower way our language has meaning.

Holeman-oneom Seed sound mantras don’t even have direct translations; rather, they are their own meanings. For example: Chanting dum (pronounced like a clipped 'doom') exorcises and protects one from external negative influences; the sound kreem, over time, destroys negative ego qualities; the seed sound shreem creates abundance in alignment with the intentions, in the life of whomever chants it.

omOther than the Crown, the other six chakras each have their own seed sounds and from the bottom, up, they are: lam (Root - earth), vam (Sacrum - water), ram (Solar Plexus - fire), yam (heart - air), ham (Throat - ether), om (Brow - mind). Om is the seed sound that serves as the prefix for most generally chanted mantras.

Chanting Sanskrit mantras resonate the petals of one's chakras and affect positive change in a systematic way. Combined with attention and intention, these sounds can be a very powerful tool. Chanting them eventually quiets the mind - subconscious waves of thought that exist throughour the body give way and become absorbed and stilled due to the power of the mantra; the circulation of life energy (prana) in the body is energized; karma is lessened - that which is written can be unwritten.

Two ways to productively experiment with any particular mantra: 1) Using a mala of 108 beads to count, for 40 days consecutively, chant the mantra 108 times in the morning and 108 times at night in the same peaceful, increasingly positively energized location; and/or 2) Without the use of a mala, commit to chanting the mantra for 40 days in a row as much as possible as you go about your day - out loud when you can; silently when you cannot.

Sanskrit mantra is not about religion; rather, it is about spiritual energy that transcends religion and is common to the human condition. See Mantras. Some important mantras are:

Gâyatrî Mantra

Gayatri-Devi-Goddess 091713g First and foremost, the Gâyatrî mantra:

om bhur bhuva svaha tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dheemahi dhi yo yonah prachodayat

One translation can be: "Oh, Glorious God, we meditate upon Your supreme eternal splendor; your radiant divine Light; Your adorable Sun of spiritual consciousness - Creator of All, may You awaken our intuition, destroy our sins & sorrows, and guide us on our path!"

Truth is, the Gâyatrî mantra tunes all of our chakras. It is the primary mantra for spiritual enlightenment for both Hindus and Buddhists and many of us on more eclectic spiritual paths. It's meaning.

Here is our in house version; here is a very joyful version performed by Anuradha & Kavita Paudwal. Deva Premal - Gayatri Mantra (2 hours), 5/26/14

Kama Gayatri Mantra

Kama Gayatri Mantra: Love Mantra youtube, 4/6/8; Mantras for Love

Om Kama devaya vidmahe     We contemplate Kama, god of love & desire
Pushpabanaya dheemahi        We meditate on the flower-arrowed
Tanno Ananga Prachodayat  May this power direct us and inspire us

Mul Mantra

Mul mantra:

ek ong kaar sat nam karta purkh nirbhao nirvair akal moort ajuni sai bhang gur Prasad jap aad sach jugaad sach hai bhee sach nanak hose bhee sach

There is Only One God. His Name is True. He is the Creator. Without Fear. Without Hate. Ominipresent. Free from Birth and Death. Self-Illuminating. Realized through the Grace of the True Guru. Meditate upon His Name. For He was True when Time Began. He has been True since the Ages. He is still True. Guru Nanak says He will forever be True.

One of Snatam Kaur's most sublime gifts to the world. Another. and another. Mul Mantra for Enlightenment!

Another mantra of spiritual liberation, which can be chanted to bring a divine soul into your family: om namah bhagavate vasudeva ya

The Gate mantra prepares the mind to receive enlightenment; in one breath:
gate gate paragate parasamgate e bodhi swaha
"Gone beyond; beyond the beyond; even beyond the beyond the beyond"

Om Namah Shivaya

"I salute Shiva; I bow before the consciousness of the universe, the Soul of all. I bow to you, Shiva, my own true Self. I bow to my teachers. It is their love flowing through me back to the world. I have nothing yet I lack nothing."

OM/AUM: The three parts of Om (A-U-M) encompass the three states of waking, dreaming, deep sleep, the three levels of gross, subtle, causal, and the three levels of conscious, unconscious, subconscious, as well as the three universal processes of coming, being, and going. Absolute silence beyond the three levels is the silence after AUM. It also refers to Tripura, the one who live in the “three cities” as in Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, as well as the light referred to in Gayatri Mantra.

Namah/Namaha: Adoration, homage, respect. Nothing is mine (as an individual person); everything is thine (as the Absolute Reality). The three levels of Om, the three worlds of gross, subtle, and causal, along with the three states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep states of consciousness, as well as the three levels of conscious, unconscious, and subconscious themselves are “not mine” as the true properties of who I really am. Truly, “nothing is mine.” Rather, everything, all of these triads is “thine” or the “other” as the Absolute Reality.

Shivaya/Shiva: That Absolute Reality that is the ground out of which the others emerge. It is that “ink,” so to speak, that is not separate from the many forms which may appear to manifest or be created from that ink. In the Realization of this, one comes to see that he or she is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. The Mahavakyas, the great utterances, are seen to be true. Shiva (the static or ground) and Shakti (the active or creative) are seen to be one and the same. She (Shakti), while one with Shiva is realized in direct experience as the one in the three worlds (Tripura) outlined in Om.

uchu no mugen no chikara ga korikotte makoto no daiwa no miyoga narinatta
