Mantras

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Mantra refers to freeing oneself from the mind. The Sanskrit roots of the word mantra are manas, meaning “mind” and trai, meaning “to protect or free from.” Therefore the purpose of mantra is to take the mind out of the relative and into spirit. Mantras are used in a variety of ways. Many forms of meditation use mantras as the vehicle to lead the mind from the conscious thinking level and arrive at the source of consciousness itself. Other mantras are used verbally to create an impulse or influence that subtly shifts energy in the physical world.
