On the basis of spiritual practice/meditation for a very long time span, very difficult austerities, profound research and due mental cogitation/reflection Indians have given the world in the form of a great gift of Psychology Science which if used methodically man benefits personally and can also contribute immensely towards world welfare. Before understanding the scientific nature of Mantra Science we must understand some basic facts. It is well known that this cosmos is round. Even the sun, earth, moon etc are round in shape. Those objects that rotate, revolve or roll become round. Stones in rivers become round because they flow with river water and while undergoing friction they take an oval or egg shape form. Apart from this for those objects that rotate it is necessary that they remain round. Wheels of cars etc can rotate smoothly since they are round shaped. Ere these wheels were square shaped they would not rotate easily. This too is a fact that because of long time rotator movement objects become round. Large rocks from mountains on breaking up enter as smaller pieces into the river flow and due to the pressure of flow they roll. Due to this rolling they become round shaped. More small pieces are seen as sand yet in shape they too are round. The result of rolling/rotating shall always be a round shape of that object.
Since an admixture of roundness and speed/movement takes place, a cycle ensues. The wheel of a car rotates and moves ahead and after moving forward the wheel ultimately reaches its original spot from where it had commenced rotating. If this movement continues ceaselessly the material returns to its original place and this cycle of moving forward and reaching its original starting point goes on and on. On this very basis stars, planets etc create their elliptical path and keep revolving in it. Within atoms units like electrons etc that are at work keep revolving akin to stars etc on their own axis and path. The same holds true for sound wave vibrations. From whichever fount it manifests they move ahead with great speed but ultimately this running is in a path that is round or cyclical in shape and then by journeying in beautiful interstellar space, return to their original spot. Again they move ahead and again they return to their original place. The journey of sound vibrations too goes on as per this cycle. They no doubt influence others yet its greatest influence is on itself because every travel cycle of theirs influences its root fount for a very long time span.
It has already been said that the influence of Mantra chanting has a definite scientific foundation. It can also be called a science. Mantra Science has 2 foundation stones. One is soul based and second is material. The combination of both these creates the basis of Mantra chanting technique. The spiritual aspect of Mantra Science is that wherein the devotee’s character and sentiments get sanctified. Thus the inner personality radiates greatly and such a terrific fount of divine energy sprouts forth from inner consciousness that can be used in any direction and for any purpose. Via the wealth of a sanctified inner personality various divine glories are attained in the soul arena. Even if glories manifest in a personality that is not sanctified yet no benefits accrue. Just as milk curdles if poured in a dirty vessel, similarly glories appearing in an uncultured personality devoid of sacredness are rendered useless and a failure. Lest wealth of glories manifested and imbibed by a sanctified personality is used for material goals the result shall be that combine success is attained and if the same is used for spiritual goals, soul attainments rush towards the inner personality from all directions of the cosmos so as to glorify it.
Bang opposite to this tainted lowly personalities get kicked at every step in life and akin to demeaned poor people stare at failure. They neither get a chance to taste material success nor is it possible for them to surge ahead on the spiritual path. Mentally powerful people like Napoleon, Alexander etc who attained historic mundane success simply because of their powerful inner personalities. In the spiritual arena all those who have tasted noteworthy success did so because at its root was a sanctified inner consciousness and potent personality.
Not only is it required but that it is most imperative for those who tread the path of spiritual practice/penance that by imbibing required self discipline in their bodily and psychic arena while focusing those energies that get destroyed due to scattering, become powerful. The 2nd aspect of advancement of the inner personality is that while rendering qualities, actions and character more and more high stature, gives them a chance to aptly develop and nourish various divine energies dwelling in the gross, subtle and causal bodies. While marching ahead using combined steps of self control and focus a person walking the path of soul progress step by step attains a very advanced inner personality and on its basis in the direction of soul uplifting, attains zestful and enthusiasm augmenting success. The spiritual basis of success of Mantra spiritual practice is that to the extent the personality becomes sacred the more inner consciousness advances further to that extent the result of Mantra spiritual practice shall reap benefits.
The mundane aspect of Mantra chanting is directly related to its management in the form of its sound message, tone usage, mode of worship and stature of worship materials. When a correct basis of these is formed the requirement of 2nd basis of soul progress gets fulfilled which by raising the stature of inner consciousness bestows multifaceted successes in the material arena. Merely for self satisfaction knowledge and path of devotion are enough. Lest the spiritual philosophy of Divine Sciences and Vedanta are imbibed on the basis of scriptural studies, association with self realized saints and deep mental reflection the state of soul wisdom or Self Realization emerges and the light of knowledge and dispassion can be noted in the deeper recesses of the soul. Aphorisms of ‘Aham Brahmasi’, ‘Soham’ and ‘Shivoham’ found in Vedanta spiritual practices fulfills the goal of Self Realization. It is used to manifest divine wisdom in the soul.
In the same way in Yoga of Devotion by advancing the element of divine love one tastes divine bliss and ecstasy. Whenever we surrender ourselves to someone, or we render someone our very own a natural bond of attraction ensues and while imbibing this attraction ecstatic bliss is experienced. This is what happens in day to day life. We love our wealth a lot. Why? The only reason is that we have built a bond of ‘mine’ with it. We adore our body, family, fame, grandeur and power because all this belongs to ‘me’. This sense of attachment is more towards wife and children and hence they are more loved by us. Whenever we withdraw our attachment and sense of ‘mine’ with objects or people, they induce dislike in us even if from the stature standpoint they are great. Bang opposite to this the more an object or person is tied with the thread of ‘mine’ will appear adorable even if they are lowly and despicable in actuality. What is the reason behind this? Why do we like a particular object or person? If this is analyzed deeply we can conclude that in this world there is no principle akin to ‘like’ or ‘dislike’. In fact these are but reactions of a sense of ‘mine’ or ‘alien’.
Ere this love and sense of mine awakens towards Almighty God, know that this too is a basis of Mantra practice. Via the medium of Japa or Mantra chanting again and again one’s beloved God is remembered and thus a sense of belonging to him is elicited. It is well known that God is supremely great, is an infinite vault of all great qualities and the root center of the soul or Atman. If a bond of love is established with him, definitely divine principles shall augment substantially in our psyche. It is very natural to stave off cold and experience warmth by sitting near fire. Via Mantra worship within the inner soul love for God can be developed in the same way as nourishing bodily muscles with the help of various apparatus in a gymnasium.
The facile nature of Yoga of Wisdom and Devotion is that without any special worship ritual or rite, they can be advanced using only very minor basic rituals. In it very miniscule external paraphernalia is required. Despite it being straightforward these 2 remain limited to a certain periphery. Self realized saints or Jnanis and Bhakta or devotee saints are immersed in the bliss of their soul and this is the reason why they benefit only personally. The benefits of their spiritual practice develop an influence only within their individual periphery that includes heaven, salvation or Mukti and Self Realization.
The arena of Mantra practice and worship is biggest amongst all. Its boundary is more beneficially expanded because it is a technique of Karma Yoga. It is well known that Yoga of action is called more supreme and extremely useful. Mantra devotion/worship is one of its techniques. In its action-reaction both mundane and spiritual principles in equal measure are embedded. Yoga practice of sentimental advancement and austerities for character building via sanctification are meant to radiate man’s inner personality. This is purely its spiritual aspect. The 2nd aspect is mundane whose sound and tone are such that can be called the reaction of bodily parts made from 5 elements. Sound at its root is material in nature. Soul power is used to plod, push and create an effect in it but sound itself is measured via material apparatus manifesting from mundane movements. Tone too is a type of sound in a certain way. Both can be enumerated in the boundaries of modern material science only. Materials used in worship methods clearly are mundane. These include image of deity, worship materials, sandalwood, agar, rice, water, fire ritual materials etc. Place of spiritual practice and food items are but created from mundane materials.
In means used for Mantra practices the sentimental state of the devotee can be said to be Adhi Adhyatmik (spiritual) and Adhi Bhautik (material). Even from the result standpoint it influences both arenas. Due to this it is definite that the devotee’s soul power shall augment. In the same way in the individual’s life both areas viz. external and internal get influenced by Mantra chanting.
