Cosmos and mantras as forms of energy
Every entity in the universe is composed of energy.
Every syllable of a word let out in the ether
is a carrier of energy and can be used to tap
specific forms of energy in the atmosphere. Mantras
are incantations hailing the Gods thereby stimulating
the necessary energy flow. This is mentioned in
the following shloka:
JAGATSARVAM MANTRADHEENAMTU DAIVATAM
Meaning that, the whole universe is ruled by the
Devas and the Devas are under the power of Mantras.
The deities are also a part of this energy world,
Shiva being the supreme source of energy and Shakti
its conscious form. Different energy forms called
the Panchabhootas include the ether, air, water,
fire and earth elements. The existence of these
elements in the human body and as well as in the
atmosphere facilitates the flow of energy between
in the body-system
Malfunctioning of the body system is caused by
disproportionate energy levels in the system.
Each organ has its own consciousness, and is capable
of emanating and absorbing a certain amount of
energy. Impropriety in this process (of radiation
and absorption) can lead to abnormal activity
of the organ or the organ system and can manifest
as a disease.
Mantras need to be chanted
- In rhythm,
- With a proper intonation (pronunciation) and
- Proper resonance (pitch).
This is necessary to invoke the full potency of
the word so uttered.
Power of Mantras
The curative power of the mantras, is not restricted
to the domain of physical illness. It can also
be extended to

- Spiritual deficits
All these ailments (or deficits) are ruled by
different deities. And the mantra so recited,
is addressed to the respective deity to invoke
grace and ameliorate the sufferings of the patient.

of health) is chanted for the cure of diseases,
Lakshmi mantra for wealth and so on.
