The Author of this publication does an exceptional job at explaining how words and sound control everything. He explains why Mantras, Chants, Holy Words, Ineffable Names, and even explosions effect the realities and environments in profound ways. In addition he covers a very interesting point in regards to connecting through sound. He remarks that when you make certain tones or use certain Mantras it then connects with others using those Astral Dial Codes. This can be done audibly and non-audibly as the mind can be trained to send a signal that establishes a consistent link with others. Injoy!

Swami Ramatirtha had once stated that – ‘One may become a God
but one can never see or show thee...’. The same is true of the subtle
elements, they can be experienced or felt-in but can’t be seen or shown
in a laboratory. Flow of radio waves through the ether is well known
though no instrument has been able to measure or demonstrate the ‘ap-
pearance’ or ‘existence’ of ether. We do feel the effects of chill,
heat, happiness, sorrow... etc. in our day-to-day life but we can never
see or show these effects in visible or otherwise perceivable forms.

Recitation of the mantras is only a means for arousing the omnipres-
ent subtle power of Ïabda. When we awake somebody by pushing
him by our hand, the hand simply plays the role of a tool, it is not a part
of the process of awakening. Similarly, the specific configuration of
syllables and the sound (including the sublime sound) produced by the
japa of a mantra is only a means for activating specific field of the
cosmic energy of Ïabda. Which mantra is suitable for awakening
what kind of subliminal energy center – is described in the viniyoga
(structural classification) of that mantra. All of the Vaidika and the
T³ntrika Mantras have distinct viniyogas. The ancient scriptures
of Âgama and Nigama describe the viniyoga part along with the
details on the methods (and s³dhan³s) of the japa of the mantras.
Before reciting a mantra one must read and understand its viniyoga.

The viniyoga of each mantra has five components – (i) RiÌi, (ii)
Chanda, (iii) Devat³, (iv) Bºja and (v) Tatva. The first component
contains the names of the iÌi(s) or the spiritual saints who had dis-
covered, compiled and/or completely mastered that particular man-
tra
and who therefore are regarded authorities on all the knowledge
associated with the spiritual practice of that mantra. Such spiritual
saints are the ideal gur¿s (guides) for the disciples who endeavor a
s³dhan³ of that mantra. Recalling this first component of the
viniyoga
of a mantra also implies that revered devotion for those
iÌis
and adept guidance of a noble gur¿ is essential for practising (the
japa of) that mantra.

The chanda indicates the rhythmic composition for the enunciation
or chanting of the mantra. As described earlier, each mantra can be

practised with different combinations of swaras (musical accents)
and gati (amplitudes). M³nasika, V³cika, Up³nïu, Ud³tta-An¿d³tta,
Swarita...., etc are some of the many modes of japa that are also
described in the chanda for a mantra. The specific pattern of sonic
waveforms generated by the mantra–japa depends upon the syl-
lables of the mantra and the type of chanda used. The assignment
of appropriate chanda for the spiritual s³dhan³ processes of prac-
tising a mantra is called – yati. The selection of a yati and hence of
a chanda for a given mantra is decided with respect to the purpose
of the s³dhan³, the configuration of the mantra-syllables and the
mental and spiritual level of the s³dhaka.

The third component, the devat³ represents the specific cosmic field
(– of the subliminal energy of Ïabda) in the limitless expression of
the supreme thy consciousness – that is aimed to be reached (real-
ized) by the japa-s³dhan³ of the associated mantra. We all know
that out of the different programmes being broadcast via the radio waves,
a radio set can catch (receive) only the ones whose frequencies it is
tuned for. Similarly, from the different streams of the conscious
power of Ïabda present in the universe, a mantra can be used to link
the individual consciousness with the devat³ of that mantra.

As the practice of the mantra involves devoted meditation upon the
devat³ along with the specified (according to the chanda) rhythmic
enunciation or chanting, the iÌis had assigned visible forms to differ-
ent devat³s – representing different manifestations and subliminal
expressions of the One, Eternal, Thy Consciousness…. Some of the
iÌis also recommended worshiping the idols – of these forms of the
devat³s – in sacred atmosphere before commencing the japa of the
mantras.

Worshiping an idol of God often facilitates proper meditation and cre-
ation of the internal emotions to strike the intrinsic core of absolute
faith that is necessary for confluence of the individual consciousness
with the cosmic flow of divinity. This type of rituals (called s³k³ra
up³san³
) do help conditioning the minds of the disciples who find it
difficult to meditate upon the subliminal forms of Ïabda in the ï¿nya
– the absolute void, the ultimate, the ‘non-existent’ but eternal realms
of thy conception.

The bºja represents the origin of the mantra. It may be understood
as a group of those syllables that contain, in compact coded form, the
gist (tatva) of the mantra and thereby imply the latent existence of
the specific power of Ïabda in that mantra. The japa of the bºja
generates the ‘energy’ essential for initiating the activation of the
‘power’ of the associated mantra.

The understanding and expertise of the science of mantras had illu-
minated the minds of the iÌis with supernormal sagacity. They could
therefore grasp the knowledge of the limitless expansion of the uni-
verse and completely ‘visualize’ the structure and function of the
tiniest part of the over 72000 nerves and glands mysteriously folded
inside the human body and could also accomplish remarkable spiritual
realizations. They also presented different streams of their intrinsic
knowledge in the ancient Indian scriptures via prose consisting of the
hymns of mantras.

The scientific significance of the sound produced by specific syllables
has attracted many researchers to study the special features of the
sonic waveforms generated by the recitation of the mantras. The
ultrasonometer developed by Dr. Fristlov is used for triggering dif-
ferent chemical reactions via the effect of ultrasound. The stirrer
used in this device can be made to stir (by the obvious effect of
ultrasound!) so fast that in no time it can make the steady water –
contained around it – churn violently like that during boiling at maxi-
mum pace. As far as the sonic effects are concerned, the subtle
power of a mantra, if focused, can be more ‘explosive’ than the
nuclear power.

The yogis often use the vital power of the air-element (v³yu-tatva)
and gain supernatural physical powers. A m³ntrika20

works at the

highest level (³k³ïa21

) – in the hierarchy of the five basic elements
and he can therefore be more powerful than other yogis.

Apart from the physical power of Ïabda, the mantras are also en-
dowed with the ‘magnetic’ power of the conscious energy of Ïabda.
The emotional linkage – through absolute intrinsic faith (ïraddh³) –
with the devat³ of the mantra attracts the subliminal energy of Ïabda.

60

Eternity... Science of Mantras

The devotion and prayers of the devat³ of the mantra are performed
to initiate this linkage. The rhythmic enunciation or chanting of man-
tras
gives rise to two types of subtle fields of influence – one, the
‘sphere’ of sonic effects, and the other, of emotional (conscious) ef-
fects. The expansion and the power of attraction of these fields
intensify with continuous (cyclic) japa of the mantras in specific
rhythm in a consistent manner. So powerful their force of attraction
could be that, any kind of material or conscious form entering into
their peripheries could be transformed according to the influence of
the mantra. The use of mantras for enlightening the mental and
sentimental domains of all the human beings may therefore be re-
garded as a scientific possibility, a spiritual endeavor, rather than a
myth or a daydreaming.
