What is Mantra

A Mantra is Divinity, Mantra and its presiding Devata are one. The Mantra itself is Devata. Mantra is divine power, Daivi Sakti, manifesting in a sound-body. Constant repetition of the Mantra with faith, devotion and purity augments the Sakti or power of the aspirant, purifies and awakens the Mantra Chaitanya latent in the Mantra and bestows on the Sadhaka Mantra Siddhi, illumination, freedom, peace, eternal bliss, immortality.

The Middle Path

A glutton is unfit for Yoga. One who starves cannot practise Yoga. Similarly, one who is filled with inertia and so sleeps much, or one who sleeps very little and is ever engaged in Rajasic activity is also unfit for Yoga. Adopt the golden mean. This is the Path of the Wise.

Get up at   a.m. and do the Japa for two hours. Brahmamuhurtha is most favourable for Japa and meditation. If you cannot take a bath, wash your hands, feet, face and body, and sit for Japa. Face north or east when sitting. This enhances the efficacy of the Japa. Sit on a Kusha-grass seat or deer-skin or rug. Spread a white cloth over it. This conserves body-electricity. Do some prayer before starting the Japa. Have a steady pose. Have Asana-Jaya or conquest over Asana. You can be able to sit in
