Hindu Mantras

I got a mail yesterday asking me to write about a Hindu mantra which I have already written here and some additional details. As a result of my interest in Hindu religion, I have already written about most of the popular mantras in Hindu religion. However, with 40 hubs on mantras alone and more to come and over 250 articles in total here I think it’s high time I create a master hub to link all my Hindu mantra articles and also create a gallery of Hindu gods to familiarize an average reader about them. This is my second master Hub here the first being a master hub on Precious and Semiprecious Gemstones which was well appreciated. However, I don’t consider myself as an expert on Hindu Mantras and whatever my limited knowledge on this subject I have tried to share through my Hindu religion hubs. If I have made any mistake please feel free to correct me.

What are Mantras?

Mantras are energy-based sounds. It is a mystical power charged with divine Energy which enable us to connect with the nameless, formless, timeless, space less divine Power that can take any form to appear before an earnest devotee, anywhere or at any time. Mantras were originally conceived in the Vedas, India’s oldest and most revered spiritual text. The word "mantra" is derived from two Sanskrit words, "manas" which means “mind” and "trai" which means “to free from”. So the word “mantra” literally implies “to free from the mind". Research has proved that Mantras when chanted properly with devotion and faith evokes the production and spreading of curative chemicals in the brain. Mantras are said to be helpful in controlling blood pressure, cholesterol levels, adrenalin level and even normalize heart beat rate. Mantras can remove negativeness like fear, anger, jealousy etc and bring in positives like improved concentration and memory power, control over emotions, improved blood circulation and also activate our body’s natural healing processes. Mantra Chanting therefore brings in a calming effect on our Nervous System helping us to relax and be stress free. Mantras can be used to awaken the Kundalini and stimulate the Chakras. They also can be of great help when doing meditation. Mantra meditation, these days, has gained great popularity as a relaxation technique and stress buster.

Easy links to the popular mantras in hindu religion like the mahamrityunjaya, durga, sri rama, sri krishna, annapurna, kalabhairava, brahma, saraswati, gayatri, hanuman, ganesh, kartikeya, surya, shani, lakshmi, kubera,rahu,ketu, kali and navagraha mantras are given below. Please visit the link to know more details of these mantras and to watch the relevant youtube videos.

Om is the symbol for the whole universe. It carries three basic sounds: A-U-M. These three basic sounds through which all the sounds have evolved.

    @soumyasrajan Thanks for the encouragement.

    @Krishanthiny You can chant Parvati Swayamvara Mantra or Kamadeva Mantra. Follow the link on this Article 'popular mantras in hindu religion' for more information.

    I saw yr interesting article only now Anamika!. Hard work and very informative. What you said to Ranjini above is very important. Ultimate aim is to be basically happy.

    Mantras are very valuable and helpful but they are not the end. One should never forget the basic idea of Indian philosophy that Mantras are only tools to realize ultimate happiness - sat (truth = the unique truth) chit (awareness or consciousness) and ananda (eternal happiness) --- satchidanand or sachchidanadna

    Thanks for the Comment. Chanting does not need to be verbal. Mental chanting is the best type of chanting. Even if he does not cant he can listen to Mahamrityunjaya or Gayatri Mantra and be benefited.

    Sorry for the checking comment above, didn't want to login.

    So according to you which would be the best mantra to be played in front of a person who has had a major injury and so is not able to chant the mantra himself? Thanks.
