How do mantra/Katha works?

Mantras and kathas are powerful sounds and when chanted with devotion produce enormous effects. Mantras and kathas are well-off in their meanings and their meaning can be meditated while chanting. As the mind concentrates more and more on mantra and its meaning, it conditions the mind and takes up to the higher states and forms the path to salvation - the eternal bliss. Read on to know about the significance of mantra…

The Vedas are full of mantras and kathas, therefore have been kept for ages in their raw form to use in the different practices like patha, karma, jata, gana, patas. It has been done to ensure that the chanter clearly interprets the correct letters and sound for each letter (svara). People are advised to chant the mantras only when they know the correct pronunciation of it. That is how mantras are kept against deterioration with time.

Mantras and kathas Are Energy-Based Sounds
Sound is the foremost content of the creation. Mantras are divine sounds. Saying any word produces an actual physical vibration. Over time, if we know what the effect of that vibration is, then the word may come to have meaning associated with the effect of saying that vibration or word. Mantras appear really powerful when this sound effect reaches the mind and the surroundings.

Mantras and kathas Create Thought-Energy Waves
Mantra, when chanted sincerely produces a state where the organism vibrates at the rate completely in tune with the energy and spiritual state, represented by and contained within the mantra.

Mantras and kathas Have Fire-Like Energy
They have fire like energy which can bring a positive and beneficial result, or it can produce an energy meltdown when misused or practiced without some guidance. There are certain mantra and katha formulas which are so exact, so specific and so powerful that they must be learned and practiced under careful supervision by a qualified guru.

Mantras and kathas Eventually Quiet the Mind
At a deep level, subconscious mind is a collective consciousness of all the forms of primitive consciousnesses which exist throughout the physical and subtle bodies. Sincere use of mantra can excavate into subconscious crystallized thoughts stored in the organs and glands and transform these bodily parts into repositories of peace.

According to some monks and archans, some of the amulets requires mantras and kathas to be chanted to increase the power and its effect.
A mantra is a powerful word or phrase that may or may not have meaning in the same way as a sentence. Mantras and kathas can only be experienced, there is no proper term to define them and phrase them. That is why; they get passed from generation to generation.

Re: How do mantra/Katha works?

In general, Mantras are powerful syllable that has healing effects and positive energy on the world and indivisuals. This is no joke. If you try to sing an AUM syllable, you find that it is actually stronger than the normal syllable we usually speak. However, i believe mantras in a less supernatural aspect would be calming down the mind.

Other than Om. The other more common but overlooked syllable is Ah!

As in you will yell "Ah" when someone hits you with a pole, that kind of Ah. It's a very basic but powerful universal syllable to yell out when in dire situation.

Re: How do mantra/Katha works?

AUM or OM is a 'beej' mantra of Lord Shiva. OM refers to 'OMKAR' or the universe/universal one.
It is the most powerful mantra in the world. For those with mantra, tantra and yantra knowledge, they would realise that Om precedes all other mantras. OM's powerful and omnipotent prevalence can also be found in thai buddhism. Some thai mantras also contain the word ' OM '.

Re: How do mantra/Katha works?

Hi guys,Anybody want to know more abt mantras related to meditation pls do PM me as posting such info openly on the forum only invites stupid and insensitive comments by the ignorant. I will be more than willing to share what limited info i have with you guys. I have already PM 2 bros here who sincerely wanted to try this aspect of the mantras. Hopefully they will come out and share their experience with us in the near future. Have a great day everyone.
