Mantra is a syllable, a separate sound or a composition of a few syllables which are to achieve a special vibration level and influence during common prayers, religious songs or magical therapies. A typical mantra or a word with mantra-like sound ends with a nasal sound, a vibrating vowel which is similar to “M”. Mantras are secret, magical words helpful in connecting with the powers and forces of nature, the higher beings, angels or saint people. Mantra is also a vibrating prayer that is experienced deeply, and it is given by a saint person, spiritual master or it is a revelation from good, godly angel or archangel! Mantra always has a deep meaning, which is not easily understood by a simple mind, but it is revealed to those who practice long and honestly and with total devotion. The basic influence of each Mantra is always deeply therapeutic and purifying, especially as far as removing obstacles connected with realising the goals showed by Mantra is concerned. Mantra is a landmark and food for every human soul, every spiritual and enlightened man and the example of Mantra practice is both Praying with Words in the mysticism of hesychasm, as well as Gregorian chorales from the Atlas Mountains! From the musical point of view, Mantra is a vibrating aliquot tone used in singing, reciting or humming, and deep, high vibrations of voice often help in healing! Mantra is for adoring God and for connecting with angels the Lords of Heavens, the Creators of Life and the Masters of the Spheres!


Sanskrit as a Holy, Angelic alphabet which has 50 clear sounds is a base for creating and practicing Mantra Yoga, the basic, elementary method of internal development and self-perfection in the current age of Kālī Yuga, which is the age of the Goddess of Time. Actually, Mantra is the only way to achieve and fulfill wishes and dreams, since it is a scientifically and deeply practiced path of Prayer, the base of every religion or way to development and spirituality. Mantra allows for overcoming all the oppositions, enemies, difficulties, it dissolves all kinds of problems, but it has to be practiced with honest faith and engagement, exactly according to the clues given by a specific spiritual master or teacher, and at the same time with due respect to the general rules and laws of practice.

If you are a stable and persistent human being, consistent in your efforts, you will achieve success quickly because every persistent Prayer will be rewarded! People, who are skeptical and maliciously spiteful, must change their character first, they must strengthen and preserve their trust and faith because Godliness must be approached with faith, without any mistrust and reservations, and Devas and Angels hate mistrustful and dishonest people. Mantra must be practiced under the guidance of a competent Guru, Master – A Spiritual Guide with experience and the practitioner must be consistent in his/her practice.

Mantra Yoga needs three elements: the desire for freedom or salvation, the company of a spiritual group and also help to other people, help that is fee from egoism, then the results can be achieved possibly fast. A person must respect his/her Guru-Hierophant and have total faith in the earthy guide – he/she should not make effort to perceive faults, mistakes or sins of Guru nor can he/she say bad things about his/her Guru, because he/she can be rejected and even punished harshly by the Heavens. The base for the beginning of Mantra Yoga practice is finding a proper Guru, accepting the Blessing of Initiation and persistent following the clues of the Guide, who gives one the Favor, which is INITIATION and acknowledgement of the power and strength of Mantras! Honesty, faith, openness, engagement are also the keys to progress and success in this simplest and elementary method of spiritual development, which is based on invocating, praying and calling for the power of sound. It is a rule that the people must keep their spiritual practice, Sādhana, Mantra in secret and it should not be known to anyone but Guru and the people who practice it together. This is a rule of spiritual hermetic practice that is set by Heavens.


During practicing Mantras or Meditations one must not think about problems or troubles nor get angry or envious since it can cause problems and disturbances. Prior to starting Mantra or Meditation one should relax and calm down and forget about all the problems, concentrating only on the goal he/she wants to achieve. Especially Mantra should not be heard by other people, who do not have spiritual practices even the family members or neighbors, and what a person gets during the spiritual Initiations should not be revealed to anyone without Guru’s acceptance, since transmitting Mantras and Meditations is a job of specially prepared teachers. Teaching heart transplantation should be done by competent people; similarly, teaching spiritual practice should be done by Guru or competent Acharya. What is good for you can be harmful to the others and you should always remember about this. One should not learn Mantra because of one’s curiosity about what someone does, because receiving Mantra is closely connected with the duty of practicing it in a proper way and the higher forces, the angels can punish people who ignore the duties given by the Lords of Heaven and one should not mock or laugh at the practices nor say Mantrams without the proper engagement, respect and piety!

A practitioner of Mantrams, recitations, singing, invocations or mental visualisation and repeating to the rhythm of breath should be on a healthy, vegetarian diet, good for every human being, because human beings are generally chewers and herbivores, and the vegetarian food supports purification and healing of the body and mind. Meet foods should be avoided and grains, fruit, vegetables and beans and little amount of milk products should be treated as the base of the everyday diet. Pure plant food helps in cleaning people’s minds and makes spiritual and religious life as well as achieving God easier.



Mantra Sādhana in classic, Indo-European style showed by Vedic spirituality, which is present throughout Europe and Asia and in all the religions of the Supercontinent, encompasses five aspects. The base is Āsana, Sitting in meditational pose such as kneeling (Vajra) or Lotus (Padma), and the most often used is the pose of fruit, fulfillment, known as Siddhāsana, where the sitting person crosses legs in such a way that one heel is close to the crotch and the other is placed over the first one. Sit in such a position for half or one third of Muhurta (12-24 minutes) thinking intensively about God, Goddess or Spirit, Angel (Deva) or Saint and this practice will destroy your sins and will let you achieve Moksha, Freedom.



Another aspect is deep breathing that balances the oppositions which is called alternate breathing, generally called Prāñayama. Sitting in Lotus or Siddhāsana position (Ideal Position) close your right nostril with your right thumb and breathe in with your left nostril. Then close your left nostril with your right ring finger and breathe out through your right nostril. Start with 10 – 20 cycles of such breathing before the sunset in the morning and in the evening. Gradually, make the number of breath cycles, which purifies the energetic channels of your organism, bigger. Trataka is the third kind of practice and it is focusing for some time on one object such as a flame, crystal, point, Om syllable or an Angelic figure, it is the concentration of sight, focused look. The fourth part of Mantra Sādhana is Japa Puja, which is a regular recitation of the Holy Phrase such as Gāyatri Mantra or God Glory – Om Namashivāya! Recitation has three basic forms: loud or melodious intonation, whispering or murmuring and repeating in thoughts to the rhythm of breath. Each form has to be taught properly – by Guru or Acharya (Teacher), of course! If Mantram is given by Guru it often involves a set of ritual gestures (Mudras) or activities known as Nyasa, which help in recitation a lot! The ritual such as Agnihotra, Homa is performed at the end of the practice as the Fire Sacrifice, which is an important part of Vedic and Eurasian spiritual culture. Agnihotra, Homa is the last, the fifth, part of the ceremony of Mantra Yoga and it is generally not performed without all the previous elements as layman usually do. The beginning practitioners should not do more than one Muhurta (48 minutes) during one session of such a serious Vedic spiritual practice and, of course, it should not be practiced without detailed oral introduction by an Enlightened Person, such as Guru or Āchārya (Spiritual Teacher). Those who think a lot about God, Allāh, Elohim, Jahve, Shiva must concentrate inside their head on the eyebrow level, at the point of focusing the vision from the eyes inside the brain, and with time they will be able to see the God Light.
