In attaining success or Sidhi in Mantra chanting 4 main precepts are at work:
1) Choice of chain of words in Mantras based on Sound Science and its methodical chanting
2) Focused Prana Energy of the Mantra devotee via self control and a simultaneous inclusion of mental focus
3) The material but subtle power of material paraphernalia used in devotional and worship methods
4) A flow of sacred sensitive sentiments, deep faith, trust and a viewpoint that imbibes a high stature goal
The more the above 4 are included the more the results and miracles of Mantra Energy shall be witnessed and perceived. Wherever the above 4 precepts are ignored and just based on whims and fancies one executes spiritual practices with the intention of getting quick boons know for sure that only despair and failure shall be our lot.
Very much like other sciences, Mantra Science also is a well managed procedure and it has to be executed with immense patience and alertness. Every portion and sub portion of it has to be applied at apt places. Only if every cog or machine part in a watch is fitted in its appointed spot that it works best and shows the correct time. Similarly if the above pillars of Mantra Science are rendered well managed with alertness there is no reason why we shall not attain the desired goal. Mantra Science becomes a mockery and utter failure only when people lacking psychic credentials (Paatrata), full of haste and harboring a very unscientific bent of mind execute such hypocrisies. Thus when because of this no beneficial results accrue they fling aspersions and accusations on the very authenticity of Mantra Sciences and its practice.
The 1st pillar includes correctness of sound flow emerging from Mantra Energy. It is a well known fact that due to some blow on flowing water waves are created and they flow in the direction of the water stream. In waters that are still these waves spread all around. No doubt wind flows but its waves flow not only in the direction of the flow but it does so in all directions. Sound in reality is a vibrating wave only. In the human mind suppose a thought erupts. The brain is trained regarding with which thought in order to help the external world recognize it which type of movement has to be created in which type of Swara Yantra. Inspired by our will power in pre programmed voice machines an onrush emerges. This onrush attacks wind in our mouth and that present outside. Thus sound waves from this starts coming out. Our ears hear these only and by analyzing them the brain takes a decision as to who said what for what purpose?
Via will power mobility and from mobility waves emerge. In gross terminology these vibrations are said to emerge from air but in reality they emerge from ‘ether’ principle residing in the deep recesses of air. Ordinarily in 1 second our ears can hear vibrations of about 32 per second. If they are less than 32 we shall not hear them. Even if they are more than this our ears shall not hear and hence understand them. The atoms of ‘ether’ principle are very subtle and ultra sensitive. In 1 second they can create up to even 3,400,000,000,000 vibrations. When these vibrations reach their highest peak from them, rays of ceaselessly flowing light manifests. These rays are called X-Rays.
These rays possess wondrous mobility and generally in 1 second can travel 10,000,000 miles. Invention of radio, TV etc has been possible based on this very science. The vibrations of air get destroyed yet ether based vibrations never get destroyed. They remain immortal eternally. The more they become old they become steady on the surface of gravitational force on planet earth. When they become strong they attract other vibrations of their own class towards themselves and when they weaken in strength they get pulled towards other strong vibrations. Yet despite on aging and withering they give rise to a new consciousness on the basis of congregational power and create such a magnetic force that influences people via that consciousness conjoined to those words and sounds. Over here also the law of cooperative coexistence is at work. People influenced are those whose brain state is very similar to ancient but congregated sound vibration energy. When these states are dissimilar and not in tandem no thought, word or sound can influence anyone. It can only showcase its presence.
Sound is a tangible energy. By itself it is formless (Nirakar) yet it can be rendered with name-form. Today images and photographs of sound are being created and on its basis that person’s image can be identified from whose mouth a certain type of sound had emerged. A fact has been placed forth before us all by Science of Sound Photography and imaging that sound is a powerful material. Just as we use atomic energy, electricity, heat etc similarly sound too can be used in a similar manner. From the word and sound flow of Mantras an image/photograph gets created. On its basis the shape and form of its presiding gods and goddesses (deities) and for succeeding in Mantra practices (Sidhi) spiritual scientists have advised us to render very potent sound and word flow emerging from worship and meditation on these presiding gods and goddesses (deities).
A 25 year old young air force cadet based in the Travis Center of California’s air force was court marshaled. He was accused of passing sexual remarks over the telephone on ladies working at the telephone exchange there. By itself he was very alert that he did not reveal his identity over the phone yet police officers using scientific technology succeeded in nabbing him.
Voice images and photographs were taken to identify this air force cadet. The voice of this cadet was photographed. Then when this photograph was matched with this cadet’s voice it was noted to be the same. Even though this cadet denied his crime yet the court of justice accepted this proof and thus was meted out apt punishment.
Photographs of voices are a rare boon of modern material science. The inventor of this technique is Dr Kersta. He has unveiled such a 3 fold technique of sound analysis and the apparatus is called Spectrogram. With this anyone’s voice can be imaged and photographed. Dr Kersta says that just anyone’s thumb print does not match with that of anyone else’s and is unique in nature similarly a person’s voice also is unique. It cannot match anyone else’s voice. Thus the voice photograph of each one of us is unique and matchless. Voice photograph recorded using this technique is accepted as total proof and on its basis we can know important hidden mysteries and nabbing slinky slimy criminals.
According to Dr Kersta when every child learns how to talk it uses its lips, palate, tongue, jaws etc in a special manner and thus it commences talking. Due to this movements occur in the muscle network and its pressure falls on wind filled up in the mouth and that spread outside. From this pressure sound emerges. The rise-fall of the movement of the voice box is self created and separate from one individual to another. Hence words and voices emerging from each one of us is unique and thus every person’s voice is different in more or less measure. This difference and disparity becomes the basis of sound difference and thus no one’s voice matches with others in the world.
New Jersey-USA’s Dr Mortimer Schwartz in order to understand the inner state of the body and analyze the causes of various diseases says that man’s voice is a very important tool in this. Dr Mortimer Schwartz says that since via the use of a sthethoscope by knowing the gap between 2 consecutive heartbeats the state of blood circulation in the body can be gauged, then by minutely understanding utterances of the mouth influenced by the inner state of the body why would it be impossible to understand someone’s inner agony and state via unraveling of utterances by the mouth that are influenced by the inner state of the body? His experiments and applications have set up a new foundation in diagnosis of various diseases.
Beej or Seed Mantras generally have no meaning yet its energy is potent. In Mantra Scriptures there are innumerous Beej or Seed Mantras mentioned like Hreem, Shreem, Kleem, Yum, Vum, Rum, Lum, Aima, Om, Hum etc (with one letter and specific Swaras) and each one’s influence and method of usage has been described. This Seed Science in its pristine purity is heavily dependent on Sound Energy. Sound and words have their own power and technique.
According to Material Science vibrations are created from sound. One more fact associated with this is that when energy gets imbued in our mouth or any special material sound flow emerges. Word or sound by itself is a special state of vibrational flow. When outer air bangs into our inner air words are uttered and a Swara or sound flow commences.
There was a time in the bye gone times that pilgrim spots were in the form of Sadhana Peetha or shrines where spiritual practices were executed and were well advanced. In these pilgrim spots apt desired environment for spiritual practices, required means and materials and guidance from experienced God Realized Gurus were available. People desiring to fulfill such goals would travel to these places and would return with success. Alas! Today’s demeaned withered state of pilgrim spots is there for all to see. Today these holy places no longer help pilgrims attain that spiritual goal for which they had been set up in previous times.
This human body although tiny is yet a complete world. In it rest seeds of all pilgrim centers. Amongst these any one or simultaneously many pilgrim centers can be awakened and rendered radiantly potent. There are certain personalities who are manifest images of pilgrim centers. In the human consciousness of such a Sidha or God Realized Master/Guru/Saint sometimes if a foreign undesirable element enters it a little effort to remove it and evict it reaps wonderful success. Spiritual practices are done for this very end. If in the realm of spiritual practices the soul principle emerges victorious then innumerable types of Divine Wealth can be attained that are manifold more precious than the 14 jewels attained when demigods and demons churned the ocean (Samudra Manthan as per Indian Mythology called Puranas). A person attaining these becomes self fulfilled and then nothing under the sun remains to be achieved. The long time period when a devotee undergoes spiritual practices can be termed a terrible war between demigods and ferocious demons. In it the devotee has to imbibe skill, shrewdness and valor to the brim. This war of spiritual practice cannot be fought with a frail, weak and listless psyche. In it instead is most required a very strong will power (Sankalpa Shakti) and potent enterprise.
A mental state marching towards glorious heights on the path of well being is called divine and a psyche immersed in desires that create a massive downfall and that pursues vile tainted activities is called demonic. The 1st one is magnetically attractive and the 2nd is a repulsive demonic flow of consciousness. Man is a combined creation of both Satvva (sacredness) and Tamas (demonic spiritual darkness). Rajas (activities executed to fulfill various desires) are the middle state of these two. The middle state that leads a devotee from Tamas to Sattva is compared to churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan as per Indian Mythology called Puranas). Both Tamas and Sattva fight tooth and nail in order to emerge victorious. Our psyche engaged in activities leading towards a downfall since many lifetimes refuses to come out its shell towards uplifting. A devotee pursuing spiritual practices makes intense efforts to march towards soul uplifting from this downfallen demeaned state. As a result the state of sheer struggle noted in churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan as per Indian Mythology called Puranas) and the bloody Mahabharat War between the Pandavas and Kauravas gets created in our inner religious and righteousness arena and outer activities of various Karmas. Generally demonic behavior and activities generally prevail.
When Sadhana or spiritual practices becomes the most beloved topic of a devotee, his mind on its own gets immersed in it, he wishes to increase his hours of spiritual practices instead of decreasing them and if after getting up from worship, meditation etc the body feels zestful and the mind becomes blissfully serene know well that maturity in spiritual practices has been attained and its goal of true spiritual well being is just round the corner. In the preliminary phase of spiritual practices a lot of effort is required to attain this wholesome state of the psyche. By using one’s spiritual imagination and power of resolve or Sankalpa Shakti that type of mental condition has to be generated in a façade like form. Yet if we diligently pursue spiritual practices regularly and generally for a long time frame this blissful mental state becomes one’s very own inner nature in an effortless manner. Hence the time period of using immense efforts based on a strong will power wherein the devotee struggles a lot is actually called Sadhana or spiritual practices. When this inner blissful state becomes natural know for sure that Sidhavastha or state of Self/God Realization has been attained.
The state of the soul which has an imperishable bond with Almighty Lord and merges into God’s divine cosmic form can be called radiance of spiritual practices. When the individual soul of the devotee and the divine cosmic soul of Almighty Lord become one eternally this state of divine ecstatic bliss is called Samadhi or trance. It is not necessary that in this state we go into Yoganidra (Yogic sleep) or become unaware of the external world. In the spiritual practice of Jnana or Divine Wisdom one attains the state of a Sthtaprajna, in the spiritual practice of Karma or selfless actions one becomes very detached mentally and in the spiritual practice of Bhakti or devotion to God one attains a psyche oozing with divine love and goodwill towards every pore of entire world creation. In it although we do not become unconscious as in a swoon but yet a ceaseless divine experience of divine light of Self Realization and self contentment is felt. All doubts in this state disappear to naught forever. The devotee feels one with Almighty God and experiences God dwelling in him. The desires and actions of Almighty God and such a devotee reaches the same level. The realm of God is widespread whereas as that of the living being is limited. One is cosmic and the other is an atom. Despite this the levels of both have wondrous parity. God has no worry about his happiness and hence is immersed eternally in rendering cosmic consciousness well balanced and super advanced. In this divine endeavor God is immersed and full of divine zeal. The sanctified soul of a devotee is absolutely of this stature of Almighty God. Such a devotee no longer pursues tasks merely to look after his family and earning name and fame. Instead he is now immersed very much like Almighty God in world welfare and well being tasks for his entire lifetime. In such selfless service to the world such great saints experience divine bliss. They get immersed in such glorious tasks and hence attain natural self fulfillment. When our belief, steadfastness, deep faith etc on maturing ooze in our mental qualities, actions and inner nature know for sure that just as oneness is noted when a rivulet merges into a hige river like Ganga the same is noted as blissful union of the devotee’s soul and God’s cosmic divine soul.
When the 2 streams of sense organ control and mental focus unite human bioelectricity gets created. A cold and hot wire helps in generating electricity. Similarly when the body and mind’s energy is obstructed from getting scattered to naught via harboring of fleeting desires that power gets amassed called Prana Energy or Ojas. In Yoga Sciences students entering the realm of Yoga practices are first and foremost advised to control and mind and body in a disciplined manner. Lest human bioelectricity gets destroyed by passing through these 2 holes of an indislplined uncontrolled body and psyche say from where shall that oil and other fuel come from to aid functioning of the engine called Mantra chanting practices? Merely chanting Mantras via the tongue cannot be called Mantra practice in totality.
Prana Energy is self directed and Mantras are controlled from external sources. The 1st task of a devotee is to render his Prana Energy very potent in a terrific manner. Mantra is that gun or bow that can use various types of bullets or arrows. But this gun or bow must be in the form of a sacredly sanctified inner personality. If this gun is not working properly then even if we use a proper technique to chant Mantras the desired goal shall not be attained. Similarly Prana Energy although in a lone way is very important yet without using Mantra Power the task of awakening latent energies in the psyche cannot succeed.
In the bodily and mental pracrices pertaining to Yoga and penance energy manifests. Yet at the time of this manifestation or after it has been amassed it is not rendered well secure then bye and bye akin to dynamite it shall burn to naught. If spirit is poured into a bottle without a lid the spirit evaporates to naught. Similarly energy that is not optimally protected gets blown away to naught in a wasteful manner.
During the phase of amassing psychic and soul energies the spiritual practice executed by a devotee is watered with Sattvik food and resting habits that augment piousness, Brahmacharya or celibacy, Mauna or mental/vocal silence, living in a lone solitude area, a daily schedule that is sacred and deep mental reflection based on sacred thinking. Added to this the psyche is protected from rushing after miracle exhibition that can gve him fleeting cheap name and fame. Sidhis or divine powers can be used merely for vain goals of greed and attachment to wife, kids etc. They can also be used for one’s own and others soul uplifting. Attaining lots of mundane benefits on the basis of very less effort is bang opposite to the laws of the Science of Karma (action). If Mantra Power is used for this end it shall not last for long and in this childish play it shall get destroyed to naught in a jiffy. Yes! If we use it for soul awakening and attaining glory this Mantra Power shall intensify further in a potent manner. It is like if we rub the knife’s edge on a smooth stone the knife becomes very sharp and since rust is removed it shall shine more brilliantly also.
For attaining Mantra Sidhi (success) blood that nourishes the devotee’s body and things that create Ojas in it are of special importance. Via nourishing food the body becomes strong and via a sacred lifestyle, resting-sleeping habits etc our mind becomes strong and sacred. Coal, oil and water possess the capacity to make steam yet it emerges only with the help of the self propelling energy of the user along with that of fire used. Even power of materials is used during the phase of spiritual practices. It is from this standpoint that many do’s and don’ts and usage of various materials are prescribed. With which materials should Havan (fire sacrifice) be done for the success of which Mantra? For eating food which materials must be used? Amongst various apparatus for worship rites which level must be given predominance for procedures of all these and creating an onrush of power not self directed and power that is self propelling? It is in this way that a process is invented to create steam in engines and with it aid rotation of wheels of a locomotive train.
The boundary of food intake is spread out to our resting, sleeping and other daily life’s activities too. Hence in the realm of succeeding in spiritual practices all this has to be included yet it must also be kept in mind that what we eat with our mouth only is not ‘food’. Via the nostrils of the nose and hair pores and skin follicles air is inhaled. In it oxygen and other elements also are inhaled within and these also are ‘food’. It is well known that via injections food reaches our body within. Hence materials entering our body via Yajna/Havan fire fumes in a gaseous state inhaled by our nose also should be considered an ‘injection’. In worship rites called Anushthan the procedures of Yajna/Havan is included. It is a process via which the subtle and causal portion of medicinal herbs gets absorbed within the body. It is for fulfilling this goal that oil of certain tress and juices of certain plants are devoured via the mouth (orally) or that they are applied via bathing, massage etc.
In our diet we must take recourse to grains, vegetables, fruits, milk etc that possess special subtle qualities. From wherever they have been procured those sources must be rendered sacred and intense more and more since this also is very much a part and parcel of Sadhana or spiritual practices. Using the wood of which trees, which apparatus, with the help of which people etc this food has been cooked? In which mental condition was this food eaten? All these procedures are very important for a devotee. If a devotee performing spiritual practices very diligently eats food against scriptural injunctions (non veg food, very pungent/bitter/salty food, alcohol etc), if this food quality is very mediocre, it is cooked by vile minded people, it is served by people with tainted psyches etc then all this hard labor of the devotee goes waste and no success is reaped. Hence during the phase of Sadhana or spiritual practices first importance must be given to our food intake and diet. Even our resting, sleeping and other activities come under this. It includes all chores, activities etc carried out in day to day living and must be rendered sacredly pure.
If our food is of low quality, adulterated etc the tainted result of devouring this shall be noted on our body. Our chief diet is plant based. Milk, honey, flesh etc is but a conversion of plants devoured by animals and other creatures. In reality our body subsists on plant life only. Just as humans possess gross, subtle and causal energies so too these dwell in plants also. The importance of Tulsi (basil), Pipal, Amla (myrobalan) etc is based on noting its divine organ energies. Doctors and medical therapists help their patients avail benefits of the subtle chemical energies of various types of plant species. Its gross form can be gauged from its color, form, odor, taste etc.
A very powerful facet of lifestyle and daily living activities is Brahmacharya or sexual continence. A gross meaning of Brahmacharya is obstructing the sperms from nightfall. In reality this means disallowing all conscious powers, aspirations and desires of the body and mind from straying here and there in a scattered wasteful manner. A little force of dynamite in the trigger of the gun is used in a singular focused manner. Only then does it showcase its terrific power. Lest this much dynamite is scattered in an open area and is lit with a match stick it shall burn very weakly. A minor popping sound emerging from this can only induce mocking sneers from those witnessing all this. Instead of using bodily and mental conscious powers in directions that are scattered are used for desired spiritual goals without doubt miracles ensue. Within the boundary of medicinal intake along with food and diet our lifestyle (resting, sleeping, daily chores etc) too is encompassed. Along with the body our mind also must be properly nourished and nurtured.
In a certain sense the Science of Brahmacharya must be termed the Science of Human Bio Electricity. Every act of sexual union induces not merely sense organ (genitals also) and psyche based zest but that it also induces an exchange of bio electricity between the sexually uniting male and female. The bio electricity of women is attracting and that of men is repulsing. When they unite in sexual union the woman pulls the sperm of the man throwing it into her. All this can be tangibly felt. All this applies to bodily, mental and soul energies also. By immersing in sexual activities if a devotee becomes a ‘male’ he shall reap only losses. The female partner may benefit minutely yet the divine potential of such a devotee diminishes a lot and hence the path that takes him towards success shall lengthen all the more. Keeping this fact in mind Brahmacharya or sexual continence and celibacy has been given a lot of importance.
The 4th foundation pillar of Sidhi or success achieved in Mantra practices is Aushadhi. It means materials used in healing and other processes. Over here Aushadhi does not mean medicines, herbs etc administered to patients suffering from various diseases by their attending doctors. For spiritual endeavors the word Aushadhi is used with reference to plants, trees etc that are made to enter the human body via the mouth, nostrils or skin pores and follicles. By imbibing their subtle energies in our consciousness the soul existence is rendered so capable that it benefits optimally via Mantra Energy.
In literature dealing with Sadhana or spiritual practices their authors have enumerated varied procedures and techniques. From which portion (middle or root) of fruits, flowers etc of which tree is the rosary or Japa Mala made? Is the Asan (seat for meditation etc) made from Kusha-grass or Khajur-dates or what else? Is the Kamandalu (water pot) made from coconut or bitter gourd or what else? While washing one’s hair or bathing the body which clay or which plant product has been used? Which Yajna material is used for which goal using which plant, which tree’s wood and using which procedure? All these injunctions in reality are included in the devotee’s food cooking techninque itself.
The 4th principle used in Mantra Science is Bhavana or sacred sensitive sentiments. Faith in spiritual practices towards Science of Devotion must be so profound that no room for doubts and distrust remains. Spiritual practices executed with a mind reeking of mere superficial curiosity, an intellect that merely wishes to test them in order to ultimately prove them bogus and a suspicious psyche shall never succeed. Faith by itself is an intense power. Akin to petrol, electricity, steam etc it has its own terrific energy. A devotee harboring deep faith always succeeds but those harboring doubts return empty handed. The great result of trust and mental resolve or Sankalpa can be witnessed at every step of daily living. For attaining spiritual progress and success it is its very Prana or life force. A devotee must harbor unbroken faith towards Mantra Energy and it must be imbibed with full faith, mental focus, strong will power and sacred sensitive sentiments in all our activities.
The goal laid down in order to carry our spiritual practices must be of a very high stature. It must never be done merely to fulfill selfish material greed. Mundane joys and facilities are attained based on the price of capability, skills and efforts we pay. Thus we must buy these mundane comforts and pleasures on this basis only. Spiritual powers must be used to increase spiritual wealth and divine glories. On its basis inner potentials must be evolved and advanced highly.
A devotee must render his inner personality and activities supremely great. His viewpoint must never harbor an intention to exhibit vain Sidhis and miracles akin to childish acts. Instead very much like divine people a good hearted devotee must be so steadfast in soul uplifting and world well being activities that by renouncing fleeting material attractions and avarice once and for all he yearns to immerse himself in the bliss of his soul and divine state of God-Self Realization. When a devotee’s thinking and activities are truly great his sacred sensitive sentiments shall become comparable to the matted hair locks of Lord Shiva. In that on these matted locks it shall become possible for the spiritual River Ganga viz. Mantra Energy to pour down upon.
