Yogi Bhajan, a spiritual teacher, explained:
“Mantras are not small things. Mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The Science of Mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a type of energy having structure, power, and a definite, predictable effect on the chakras and the human mind.”
Some believe that the chanting of sacred mantras actually causes the physical and etheric bodies to change their vibrational frequency level – becoming more attuned if you like, with divine energy.
Consequently, when one chants a mantra for an extended period of time, to invoke, for example, some deity, the higher energies of that deity will encode itself upon the chanter.
This is one purpose for much mantric chanting – to become one and unite with the energy of the deity that one is chanting for.
If the individual has some sickness or imbalance, this imbalance can frequently be released by having the energy of the deity encode itself upon the person.
This really comes from the concept of vibrational medicine, which is the basis of many healing modalities, including homeopathy and acupuncture – that all the universe including our bodies, is simply made of vibration – a concept, incidentally, that the new superstring theory of physics supports.
Everything is in a state of vibration and when we are in a natural, resonant vibration, we are in a state of health. But if some part of the body begins to vibrate at a counter frequency, the energy becomes stuck, and disease sets in.
Therefore, by mantric chanting, one can cause negative energy to become released, and we can return to our natural state of resonance, effecting a cure.
The meditation practice, which involves the chanting of a mantra, it is practiced for 20 minutes twice per day while sitting with the eyes closed. It is reported to be one of the most widely practiced and among the most widely researched, meditation techniques, with hundreds of published research studies.

Lyrics of White Tara mantra:
”OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU YE SVAHA”
White Tara (Sanskrit: Sitatara; Tibetan: Sgrol-dkar) is sometimes called the Mother of all Buddhas and she is the motherly aspect of compassion.
Tara’s white color signifies purity, wisdom, and truth.
In religious practice, Tara is believed to help her followers overcome obstacles, especially those that inhibit the practice of religion. She is also associated with a long life.
2.Hari Om Shiva Om
”Hari Om Shiva Om Shiva Om Hari Om”
Hari is another name of Lord Vishnu. It can also be translated as The Remover of ego. The universal mantra of cosmic vibration.
”Oṃ ha ha ha vismaye svaha”
Ksitigarbha is a transcendent Bodhisattva of Mahayana Buddhism. In China he is Dayuan Dizang Pusa (or Ti Tsang P’usa), in Tibet, he is Sa-E Nyingpo and in Japan he is Jizo.
He is one of the most popular of the iconic Bodhisattvas, especially in East Asia, where he regularly is called upon to guide and protect deceased children.
Ksitigarbha primarily is known as the Bodhisattva of the hell realm, although he travels to all of the Six Realms and is a guide and guardian of those between rebirths.
”There is one Creator of all Creation. All is a blessing of the One Creator. This realization comes through Guru’s Grace.”
The mantra must be chanted in a sacred way. After chanting it, it is wise to keep your thoughts and words positive, as you will be in a state of manifestation. It is a very creative chant.
Anything you say will be amplified and created with great force. When you are in this state give your prayers and most positive projections for health, bliss, and holiness.
This meditation conveys great intuition to the practitioner. It represents the knowledge that comes through the soul. Expand what you are able to sense and see prior to its happening, get the necessary guidance, and open your Ajna chakra!
5. Heart Sutra
”Gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate. Bodhi! Svaha!
Gone, gone, gone over, gone fully over. Awakened! So be it!”
The meaning of the Heart Sutra:
Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, meditating profoundly on Perfection of Wisdom, saw clearly that the 5 aspects of human existence are empty, and so released himself from suffering. Answering the Buddhist monk Sariputra, he said this: the body is nothing more than emptiness, emptiness is nothing more than the body.
The body is exactly empty, and emptiness is exactly the body. The other 4 aspects of human existence — feeling, thought, will, and consciousness – are likewise nothing more than emptiness, and emptiness nothing more than they.
All things are empty: Nothing is born, nothing dies, nothing is pure, nothing is stained, nothing increases and nothing decreases. So, in emptiness, there is no body, no feeling, no thought, no will, no consciousness. There are no eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind. There is no seeing, no hearing, no smelling, no tasting, no touching, no imagining.
There is nothing seen, nor heard, nor smelled, nor tasted, nor touched, nor imagined. There is no ignorance and no end to ignorance. There is no old age and death, and no end to old age and death. There is no suffering, no cause of suffering, no end to suffering, no path to follow. There is no attainment of wisdom, and no wisdom to attain.
The Bodhisattvas rely on the Perfection of Wisdom, and so with no delusions, they feel no fear and have Nirvana here and now. All the Buddhas, past, present, and future, rely on the Perfection of Wisdom and live in full enlightenment. The Perfection of Wisdom is the greatest mantra. It is the clearest mantra, the highest mantra, the mantra that removes all suffering.
This is the truth that cannot be doubted.
”Om Benzar Sato Samaya, Manu Palaya
Benzar Sato Tei No Pa, Tisthira Dridho Me Bawa
Suto Khayo Mei Ba Wa Su Po Khayo Mei Ba Wa,
Anu Rakto Me Ba Wa,
Sar Wa Siddhi Mei Pra Yatsa, Sarwa Karma Sutsa Me, Tsi Tam Shri Yam,
Kuru Hung Ha Ha HaHa Ho Bagawan Sarwa Tathagata,
Benzar Ma Mei Muntsa Benza Bhawa Maha Samaya Sato Ah”
Otherwise known as the Prince of Purity, Vajrasattva is snow-white in color. Vajrasattva’s name can be translated into literal English as meaning “Embodying Reality/or Being.”
The 100 syllable mantra is used in the purification of an individual’s negative karma. It can often also be recited prior to undertaking a new pathway on the journey of enlightenment, again as a means of karma purification.
7.Guru Ram Das
This is a mantra of humility, relaxation, self-healing, and emotional relief. It calls on the spirit of humility and grace of the realm of Guru Ram Das, with its spiritual guiding light and protective grace.
It reconnects the experience of infinity to the finite and therefore rescues you in the midst of trial and danger.
