What is a Mantra?

A mantra is a short, spoken prayer consisting of a repeated word or group of words that invoke a particular aspect or quality of God.  The word or combination of words are held to be sacred. For centuries, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists have used mantras in their devotions.  According to Hindu tradition, mantras were received as divine inspiration by mystics who were able to hear the fundamental tones of the universe.

Each mantra has a vibrational pattern.  And when it is spoken, because it has been recited perhaps millions or billions of times by others, it creates a deep vibrational pattern in the ethers.  Therefore, mantras can have tremendous spiritual power!

Why Give Mantras?

Hindu and Buddhist mystics believe mantras help them to achieve enlightenment and oneness with God.  Some Benedictine monks have discovered that Gregorian chants energize their bodies.


Today, more and more scientific studies are showing evidence that giving mantras can reduce the heart rate, lower stress levels, relieve insomnia and benefit the immune system.
