saying from the Vedas claims, "Speech is the essence of humanity."
All of what humanity thinks and ultimately happens is determined by
the expression of ideas and actions through speech and its
derivative, writing. Everything, the Vedas maintain, comes into
being through speech. Ideas remain unactualized until they are
created through the power of speech.
Vedic practices, most ancient techniques and classical Hinduism,
mantra symbolizes as a necessity for spiritual advancement and high
attainment. Here are some important ideas about mantra, which will
enable you to begin a practical understanding of what mantra is and
what it can do.
Mantras are energy-based sounds. Saying any word produces an actual
physical vibration. Over time, if we know what the effect of that
vibration is, then the word may come to have meaning associated with
the effect of saying that vibration or word. This is one level of
energy basis for words. Another level is intent. Actual physical
vibration when coupled with a mental intention, the vibration then
contains an additional mental component, which influences the result
of saying it. The intent when overlaid upon the waveform of the
sound as the carrier wave. Although there is a general meaning,
which comes to be associated with mantras, the only lasting
definition is the result or effect of saying the mantra.
