Heal yourself...heal the world

"manas trayate iti mantra" meaning - Mantra is a unique combination of sounds that produce a profound healing effect on your body and mind.

The effectiveness and speed of healing depends to a large extent on the attitudes of the healer and the patient. The moment you have faith in the healer and his process, and you are able to visualize yourself as a healed person, the battle is already won. Many pioneers in the past and present have explained this phenomenon in many different ways.

Modern medicine talks about psychosomatic illnesses. Mind and body are connected and thus one cannot be healthy without the other. If we go into the root cause of our illness, we will find that it is due to ignorance of our true selves.

We are not these bodies. The body is an external covering of our true self. The body is important to achieve the purpose for which we have come into the world. The body is a temple. It is sacred. So it should be taken proper care of. When we move out of the body, it has no value no matter how beautiful and strong it may be.

There are many energies that are working to keep the body working harmoniously. Sound is a most potent and powerful energy source. The ancient physicians say that everything emanated from sound. Chanting of these sacred sounds induce a special type of healing within the mind and body thus harmonizing and integrating our desires and actions with that of the universal.

The root cause of all disease is to be disconnected or disintegrated from the whole. Eg. If a branch is disconnected from the tree, it withers and dies. Similarly when we become disconnected in our mind and body from the universal energy and purpose of existence, it results in many mental anxieties which eventually translate into physical ailments.

Mantras reconnect us with this powerful source of healing... healing the intellect, mind and body... and opening up a whole new world of happiness and complete health.

For eg, the Mahamrityunjay mantra is said to have a profound healing effect

 Om tryambakam yajamahe
sugandhim pushti-vardhanam
urvarukamiva bandhanan
mrityor mukshiya mamritat



Meaning of Mahamritunjay mantra

I worship the three eyed Lord Shiva, who is full of fragrance and who nourishes everybody with health and vitality. May Lord Shiva liberate me from mortality, just as a cucumber fallls off the creeper when it is fully ripe, may I live a full life...and know my immortal self.

Uses of Mahamrityunjay mantra
