Beej Mantras are the monosyllabic sounds. A beej mantra represents the essence of the mantra. Every devta has particular beej mantra. Generally a beej mantra consists of single syllable but some times it comprises several syllables also. There are five main beej mantras. The beejs of the five elements, of Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth, are Haum, Yam, Ram, Vam and Lam respectively. The Sankrit word beej in Hinduism and Buddhism is used as a metaphor for the origin or cause of things.
Some Powerful beej mantras are as follows:
Om or A U M ॐ
Om is most important among all the beej mantras. A majority of mantras begin and end with this sound. Om means yes and it affirms anything what is said after its pronunciation.
Here ha is Shiva and au is Sadashiva. This mantra is pronounced in the worshiping of Lord Shiva.
It is a major mantra of all powerful goddesses and ruler of the world. This governs over the cosmic magnetic energy. Hrim destroys the worldly maya. According to the Vedas this is mantra of Sun. Hrim opens the lotus of the heart to the inner Sun of consciousness. It is a mantra of the heaven or the consciousness space in which all the worlds exist.
It is the mantra of great Goddess Kali. Kali is supposed to be the goddess of energy and transformation. This mantra grants all spiritual facilities and power. Krim has a special power relative to the lower chakras, which it can both stimulate and transform. Krim awakens and purifies the subtle body. As a mantra of work and transformation it is the mantra of Kriya Yoga, the Yoga of practice. It is the prime mantra of the Yoga Shakti. It should be used with care due to its strength.
Hum is a Shiva mantra but also a mantra of Chandi, the fierce form of Goddess Kali. It is used to destroy negative energy and creates great passion and vitality. As a powerful mantra it should also be handled carefully. Hum is a Vedic chant of fire. This mantra used to make offerings into the sacred fire.

Shrim also relates to the head and can be used to flood the senses with divine beauty and delight. According to the Vedas shrim is a Soma mantra. It denotes love, joy, bliss, beauty and delight.

Mantra Therapy is the positive practice of concentration on a particular sound. ‘Mana’ means the mind and ‘Tra’ means vibration. Any sound or word that creates positive vibrations in mind is called a Mantra. Sound is a form of energy made up of vibrations or wavelengths. Certain wavelengths have the power to heal, others are capable of shattering glass. Repetition of Mantras in meditation, will bring individual to a higher state of consciousness. The practice of Mantra leads to concentration of the mental power at a particular point and then allowing it to be equally distributed over the body so that one experiences mental bliss. The mind feels relaxed and all systems of the human body function in a normal manner.
Scientists have proved that chanting a Mantra can cure many if our physical and mental problems. About 98% of our problems are psychosomatic. ‘Psycho’ means the mind & ‘Somatic’ means the body. Most of our problems start from the mind. Too much of stress leads to high blood pressures, nausea, dihoria, migraine, acidity, eczema, respiratory diseases and many more. The practice on Mantra librates the mind from all the suffering, irritability, over attachment, ego, lust, and helps one enjoy the spiritual bliss. By chanting a Mantra one feels absolutely blissful and relaxed in the mind. During meditation, we always use a Mantra and try to get rid of all the thoughts that are present in the mind. Mantra can be chanted internally (In the mind, Inaudioable) or externally (by chanting loudly, audible).
The internal Mantras are generally small and are also called beej mantras or seed mantras. They are powerful vibrations having great healing powers and are on wavelength far beyond physical sound. In meditation, use the internal mantra as barrier of thoughts and allow the mantra to take the place of thoughts in mind. This simple technique of reducing of all kinds of thoughts in the mind is a very powerful technique to reduce stress. Consider your Mantra as your guide and friend.Take the help of your Mantra whenever you feel down or low and life, when you are angry lonely, afraid, undeceive or in trouble. Your Mantra will help you increase your will power, sharpen your memory and motivate you, thereby making you more confident person and a better human being. Many patient have completely recovered from their sickness by chanting mantras. Even when the disease is incurable, the patient’s experience great relief by chanting a Mantra.

Man can attain greatness by developing his dormant powers through Mantra. The regular japa of a mantra reduces restlessness of the mind, brings restraint in life; and works wonders in developing the concentration and memory. A Mantra has different effects on different energy centres of the body. Many personages like Mahavir, Buddha, Kabir, Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekanand, Ramkrishna Paramhansa, Swami Ramtirtha, Pujyapaad Swami Sri Lilashahji Maharaj, etc. have attained respect and reverence all around the world through their awareness of the True glory of Mantra.

| Preparation for mantra ||
What type of clothes should be worn during performance of Japa?
Dhoti and Kurta are cheap and convenient wears, which, besides meeting the above objectives, also serve the purpose of religious and cultural integrity. Dhoti and Kurta are also easily washable. In those regions where Dhoti-Kurta are not traditional wears, clean-washed Pyjama may be used. Socks should never be worn during the Sadhana. These are considered as dirty as shoes. (However, to ward off extreme cold, one may wear clean socks reserved exclusively, for this purpose). Though traditionally a yellow Dupatta (Angavastra) on shoulders is recommended, it is not mandatory. Ladies may wear yellow Saree or a loose traditional wear. For Group performance, it is advisable to keep stock of spare clothes for the visiting participants.
What is the significance of Havan?
Jap and Havan are basic ingredients of an Anusthan. After initiation (Dikcha) the worshipper (Sadhak) makes a total surrender to Gayatri and Yagya (his spiritual parents), which are inseparable. Invocation of both is done through specified procedures during the Anusthan.
What is the ideal ‘Bramhabhoj’ after completion of the ‘Anusthan’?
After Poornahuti in the Havan. Traditionally it requires feeding Brahmans or young maidens. Qualified, deserving Brahmans are not easily available, these days. Alternatively, maidens (who being symbolic of mother power of God the Matri Shakti, are fed to augment faith) are offered food, but at times they are not permitted by self-respecting parents to take food in a stranger’s house.
What is the time of the day recommended for Jap during an Anusthan? Is it necessary to complete Jap at a stretch?
The best time is in the morning for all spiritual activities.And yes mantra chanting can be done in instalments ,the maximum breaks taken can be upto six.Although one should try to talke less breaks.
What is “VAAM MARG”?
Sadhanas are carried out in two ways. These are designated as the ‘Dakchin Marg’ and ‘Vaam Marg’ or Tantra. The Vaam Marg, on the other hand, is the technique of pulling out bio-energy from living beings and utilizing it for exercising psychic control over others and for exorcist activities. Tantriks call this energy as Durga or Kali. In practice, the Tantrik excites the bio-energy of an animate being by violently killing it or inflicting excruciating pain on it by extraction of flesh or blood. It is tempting for some highly egoistic and ambitious persons to acquire extraordinary powers through Tantra, But its practise is extremely complex and dangerous.
Is Akhand Yagya permissible?
Yagya should be completed in a fixed time during the day only. The reason being the possibility of insects, worms etc. getting killed in the sacred fire, which makes it a violent and profane act. It is not usually advisable.
Is taking a bath essential prior to Jap?
It is advisable to take a bath before sitting for a jap,the saadhak should maintain cleanliness ,but again changes,in daily routine can be taken into account. We prescribe cleanliness of body and clothes, it is not considered mandatory for all occasions. Situations may arise when the worshipper finds it difficult to adhere to this rule strictly. Under such circumstances, one should not discontinue the routine of worship. Besides cleanliness, the objective of these preparatory rituals is to help the worshipper in getting rid of lethargy. A sick or weak person may wash his arms, feet and face, or if possible wipe the body with a wet cloth.
On what should one concentrate during Upasana?
Saadhk believing in Divinity ‘with form’ (Sakar) are advised to concentrate on an idol or picture of Gayatri, whereas those having faith in formless God (Nirakar) may concentrate in the central, part of the sun, all the while imagining that the ethereal solar energy, it is necessary to concentrate one’s thoughts exclusively on the deity.
Is Jap permissible along-with other activities?One may perform Jap even while walking or without taking a bath or during other physical activities. On such occasions, however, it should only be a mental process without movement of lips, larynx and tongue. This is called an Upaanshu jap. Instead of taking the help of a rosary, a clock may be used for keeping a count .
How is it possible for illiterate persons and children to do Gayatri Sadhana, for whom the pronunciation of the Mantra is somewhat difficult?
Illiterate persons who cannot utter Gayatri Mantra correctly, can perform Jap of PanchakshariGayatri “Om bhoor Bhuvaha Swaha.” If they cannot utter even these words correctly, they can perform Jap of “Hari Om Tat-Sat.” This also serves the purpose of Panchakshari Gayatri Mantra.
What is the difference between a Yogi, a Guru and a Swami?
All these terms define different concepts. A Yogi is one who practices Yoga. It can be referred to occasional practitioners or sometimes full-time aspirants
Having reached a certain degree of realization on the path the Yogi can become a Guru and have disciples. The Gurus of the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers are Sri Swami Vishnu-devananda and his own Guru Sri Swami Sivananda.
The Yogis traditionally embrace either the householder path after their training or sometime the monastic life by renouncing the world and becoming a Swami or renounciate.
Why do Yogis breathe through the nose both when inhaling and exhaling ?
Because it is more natural and because the nose in an integral part of the respiratory system, allowing the air to be heated, moistened and filtered.
I know that one should not change one’s Mantra, but I have been initiated into a Mantra
and since then, I have developed more devotion to a different deity and I feel the vibration of its corresponding Mantra more powerfully. Should I switch anyway?
Many meditators share the experience described above. And yet it would be a major mistake to switch Mantras. It is a common mental pattern to get bored with something we have been doing over a long period of time. Everything else seems very new and refreshing in comparison. However, regularity is essential in order to go deeper and deeper in meditation.
Should I follow a Vegetarian diet during jap?
A healthy motto is: “Eat to live, not live to eat”. It is best if we understand that the purpose of eating is to supply our being with the lifeforce,or Prana, the vital life energy. So the greatest nutritional plan for the Yoga student is the simple diet of natural fresh foods. Any change in diet should be made gradually. Start by substituting larger portions of vegetables, grains, seeds and nuts until finally all flesh products have been completely eliminated from the diet.
