Mantra is a special form of energy expressed in vibrations, sounds and music. In translation from Sanskrit "mana" means consciousness, and "tra" means to free. Therefore, mantra is the freedom of mind from ignorance. Mantra chanting creates powerful vibrations which are said to be directed to the right "chakras" to attract divine forces. This process is said to mysteriously heal the spiritual, physical & psychological body. It is important that when the mantra is chanted, the words and their rhythm must be enjoyed and one must surrender oneself to this experience.
