Vedic Book Teachings Of The Mantras

Sep 15, 2008
In many vedic books individuals can learn about the mantra teachings of the past, which are a variety of chants or hymns that are recognized in the ancient traditions and beliefs. Understand the chanting of these ancient mantras, which are often thought of as a primordial language, can help the individual understand these ancient teachings better.

Many of these mantras consist of single syllable words that may have several different meanings depending on how they are used. Many ancient mantras were designed by the language of bija, which is also considered to be the root language of many vedic literatures of the past. Mantra knowledge will help individuals understand the inner meaning of these chants and hymns.

To begin with there are five main mantra words in each chant or hymn with the first being OM. The majority of every mantra will begin and end with OM, which affirms and helps energizes every thing that is being said after it. The word OM is thought to create a type of energy that will rise upward and that can cause the elements of fire, air, and ether to increase and expand. OM is also thought to give grace, protection, and strength with a guiding power as well.

The next four main mantra words are also know as the four Goddesses, which reign over heat, delight, magnetic force, and electrical force. The major mantra of the Great Goddesses and Rulers of the world was known as HRIM and is known for her great creativity and powers of healing. She rules over magnetic energy and the power within the soul. She was thought to be alluring and charming, but at the same time purifying. In mantras, this term means the sun or illumination in respects to helping increase aspirations in individuals are they seek out truth and wisdom. HRIM is thought to help open the heart of individuals.

The great Goddess of energy and transformation was Kali and this is where the mantra word KRIM originates. KRIM rules over lightning and electrical energy and is thought to awaken the subtle body as it purifies. KRIM is also thought to have the ability to destroy any signs of ignorance as it releases th absolute truth in life. HUM is the mantra word that stands for an inner fire or force, which is necessary to destroy any type of negativity as it creates vitality and passion within an individual and their life. HUM can be a very powerful mantra, but at the same time it can be used in a more gentle manner. HUM comes from fire and is often used in mantras when making offerings upon a sacred fire while it can also be used to make a flame brighter as well. It represents a hidden soul within the body as it rules the body.

The mantra word meaning love, beauty, and devotion is SHRIM, which is related to the Goddess of Beauty, Lakshmi. SHRIM is thought to assist in giving individuals the good things in life such as health. It allows us to take refuge, surrender, or become immersed within the mantras to enable us to gain the full power of their beauty and delight. It is thought to aid in fertility and rejuvenation as well as promote health while giving love, joy, bliss, beauty, and delight. SHRIM rules over the mind as it purifies through various areas in nature.
