Mantras for Japa

 


OM

There is no translation of OM. It consists of three letters: A,U and M. It signifies the three periods of time, the three states of consciousness and all of existence. A is the waking state, U is he dreaming state, and M ist he deep sleep state. OM contains nada and bindu. Nada is the prolonged vowel sound and bindu is the humming sound, made with closed lips, with which the Mantra ends. All Mantras are hidden in OM, which is the abstract, highest Mantra of the Cosmos.

Lord Krishna

Maha-Mantra

Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare is a glorified form of address for calling upon God. Rama and Krishna were two of the best known and most beloved incarnations of Vishnu. They took human birth on this earth to lead mankind to eternal salvation. This is the Maha Mantra, the easiest way for attaining God-Realisation in this present age.

OM Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya /Prostrations to the Lord God, Vasudeva

Bhagavan means Lord, referring to Vishnu. Vasudeva, meaning "He who rides in all things and whom all things abide", is a name of Krishna. Krishna is one of the most loved deities. He is considered to be world teacher for he ist the source of the Bhagavad Gita, one of the most popular eastern religious texts. People are drawn to Krishna because of his playfulness and joyful nature

OM Nama Sivaya / Prostrations to Lord Siva

Siva is the lord of ascetics and recluses. He is part of the Hindu Trinity. Brahma and Vishnu, the other two parts, are associated with creation and preservation, respectively. Siva, the Cosmic Dancer, presides over the destructive energies which break up the universe at the end of each age. This is the process of the old making way for the new. In a more personal sense, it is Siva's energy by which one's lower nature is destroyed, making way for positve growth.

Sri Devi

OM Sri Durgai Namah / Prostrations to Mother Durga

Supreme Divinity is without qualities or attributes, and as such it contains all qualities and attributes. The masculine principles are important, yet they must be balanced with the feminine principles. Masculine and feminine are but obverse and reverse of the same coin. Durga represents the motherhood aspect of God. She ist he force, or shakti, through which Divinity manifests. Durga is power. She ist the protector and benefactor. According to Hindu mythology, the chaitanya, or pure consciousness, of Brahma, Vishnu and Siva were united to form the being of Mother Durga. She is commonly pictured riding a tiger and having eight arms with which she carries flowers and weapons of protection and gives the gesture of blessing.

Lord Ganesha

OM Sri Ganapataye Namah

The mantra of elephant headed God. A remover of obstacles and bestower of success.

Sri Hanuman

Om Sri Hanumate Namah

Lord Hari

Om Namo Narayanaya / Prostrations to Lord Vishnu

Narayanaya is a name of Vishnu, the preserver of the world. After the Creation, it is the energy of Vishnu which maintains order to the universe. It is Vishnu who regularly takes a human form and incarnates on earth to benefit mankind. People who are closely involved in the running of the world and maintaining the harmony of life are drawn to this aspect of God.

Hari OM / OM Vishnu

Hari is another name for Vishnu. It is that aspect which forgives the past actions of those who take refuge in him and destroys their negative deeds. Thus Hari is a redeemer and guide to personal salvation as well as the world Preserver.

Sri Kalika

Om Sri Maha Kalikayai Namah / Prostrations to Mother Kali

Kali is the divine aspect which is responsible for the destruction and eradication of negative qualities in the world. She is the transformative power of Divinity which dissolves the individual into cosmic union. Maha Kali is one of the most fearsome of all expressions of Divinity. Because of the intensity of her purgative nature, very few people are initiated into this Mantra.

Sri Lakshmi

OM Sri Maha Lakshmyai Namah / Prostrations to the great Mother Lakshmi

Lakshmi  is the bountiful provider. As Vishnu's consort, she aids the preservation of the three worlds by bestowing wealth and abundance of a material and spiritual nature. She is pictured as a beautiful woman standing on a lotus blossom with her arms open and giving.

Lord Shiva

Maha-Mrityunjaya Mantra:

Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam urvarukamiva bandhanan mrityor mukshiya maamritaat.

We pray to Lord Shiva whose eyes are the Sun, Moon and Fire. May He protect us from all disease, poverty and fear.  And bless us with prosperity, longevity and good health.
The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is a prayer to Lord Shiva (part of the hindu trinity, the lord of destruction, penance and meditation) for help in overcoming "death". The seeker is more concerned with avoiding spiritual "death" rather than physical "death". The mantra is a request to Lord Shiva to lead us to the mountain of meditation, which is indeed Lord Shiva's abode.
Legend has it that Lord Shiva appeared before his devotee Markandeya (who was destined to die at the age of sixteen) and stopped his aging process a few days before he was supposed to turn sixteen. Thus, death would never be able to claim him! Hence, this mantra is also referred to as the Markandeya mantra in classical hindu studies. The mantra should ideally be repeated 108 times, twice daily, at dawn and at dusk. It is particularly useful for meditation and yoga practice.

OM Nama Sivaya / Prostrations to Lord Siva

It is said that those who chant these five holy letters while meditating on Lord Shiva will be blessed by visions of Shiva - the Lord of the yogis.
Siva is the lord of ascetics and recluses. He is part of the Hindu Trinity. Brahma and Vishnu, the other two parts, are associated with creation and preservation, respectively.

In a more personal sense, it is Siva's energy by which one's lower nature is destroyed, making way for positve growth.

Vedantic Formulae:

Soham / I am That I am

The meditator is existence itself. He is without form, without quality, without past, present or future. No bonds or limitations restrict the aspirant who has Soham firmly fixed in his mind.

Tat Twam Asi / That Thou Are

The meditator is existence itself. He is without form, without quality, without past, present or future. No bonds or limitations restrict the aspirant who has Soham firmly fixed in his mind.

Aham Brahma Asi / I am the one supreme, universal Spirit

Aham Brama Asi is a great Vedantic formula. The meditator asserts himself to be One with the ever-present Brahman. In doing so, he denies confinement to the body and mind, and affirms unity with the Absolute.
