What are the top 10 Kundalini mantras and their meanings?
Kundalini mantras are sounds, syllables, words, or phrases that are believed to be capable of creating spiritual transformation.
These powerful mantras used in Kundalini Yoga practice have been created to modify or elevate consciousness through their meaning and rhythmical chanting.
Mantra is the creative process of the mind through vibration (or sound).
It is beneficial to associate a sacred mantra with the breath.
This technique helps focus the mind and strengthen endurance during challenging spiritual exercises.
Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa explained:
„Chanting mantras, either out loud or silently, is a conscious method of controlling and directing the mind. Happiness, joy, sorrow and regret are vibratory frequencies in the mind.”
Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa added:
”Call them attitudes, or beliefs, but fundamentally, they are vibratory healing frequencies or thought waves. They determine the kind of program our mind plays.”
