Mantra… Words to bring you one step closer to God. It can be called as a bridge between the consciousness of man and God.

The word Mantra is a Sanskrit term, syllable or group of words that is a medium to bring transformation within you.

Om!.. this word in itself is a mantra. It is the beginning, it is the God Shiva himself.

Vedas tell us that the word Mantra in entirety is the Rig, Yajur and Sama Veda. Mantra is a language between you and God, it is through this that you can tell all your worries, your pains, your happiness, your desires and be sure that they will be heard by the Almighty. Leave aside all your unwanted thoughts and purify your body and soul, and sing the song for the Gods and be blessed by him.

Let’s now see more about Mantras.

Gayatri Mantra is the heart and core of all that is divine. It is the mother of all Vedas and the epitome of knowledge. Chanting Gayatri Mantra will remove all sins, wash away all the miseries, shower you with wisdom, lead you toward peace.
