In Magical Healing Mantras, twenty-five musicians unite from around the world and blend their voices, guitars, flutes, sitars, tablas and a tarang to create a memorable East-West musical fusion that is both exotic and familiar. Includes the Gayatri Mantra.
An ancient Hindu technique suggests repeating a mantra in 108 successions for 40 days to secure the mantra’s vibration in the body. If any of the days are missed, it is important to start again at the beginning of the 40 day period.
Much has been written about the power of thought on action. A mantra is devotional and, therefore, inspired. Each mantra has a specific purpose to serve a higher ideal. If the intention serves this ideal and the universe, a profound and positive change can occur within the individual.
There are some general techniques that facilitate the practice of using mantras. Find or create a sacred place to chant. Experiment with different times of the day. Use candles or incense to enhance the ceremonial atmosphere. Take a few deep breaths and dispel any negativity that might interfere with focusing.
“We contemplate that ultimate reality which is in the dart, the sky, the heaven! Let us bring our minds to meditate in the glory of the Divine Truth, may truth inspire our reflection.” ~Gayatri Mantra
“What we experienced more than once during the year it tok to create this CD, is that psychic and emotional distress can be healed of calmed through longer chanting, while shorter chanting enhances emotional contentment and inner peace. However, essentially, this music arose from intuition. All the participants ‘lived the space’ and simple trusted in our ‘not-knowing’ the particulars of what these mantras can do and believing that something beautiful was being created.” ~Sangeet
