Usage of Mantras

It is said that all human problems are created by the person on his own, the basis of which is always his/her Karmas (deeds). It is believed that mantras are a form of energy which leads to attainment of God. Through mantras one can obtain every thing which he desires. It is the way to invite God and tell Him the problems being faced by the devotee. It is advised that the Mantra anusthans (rituals) should be done strictly as advised in this book to reap the maximum benefits. Through the mantras one can control and get relief from diseases.

Keeping desires in view and repetition of mantras creates deeper and deeper impression on the mental plane, viz. conscious mind becomes saturated with impression. Thereafter the power of Mantra moves to the subconscious mind, hearing the singing of mantras in an uninterrupted way. Breathing will also become thinner, which will create an impression on subconscious mind. It may be noted here that the correct recitation of words of mantras should be practiced. Mantras could be used as per their division discussed below.
