Vedas are epitome of power of mantras. The sounds can heal you and liberate you.
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare;
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare.
This mantra was given by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, an incarnation of Shri Krishna, the supreme personality of Godhead. He appeared as a devotee to show us the path of Bhakti. There are many mantras to get bliss, peace and happiness, but this one is unique in awakening and expanding Krishna-consciousness. It makes you ‘Chaitanya’ like Mahaprabhu.
In his unique book ‘Japa Yoga,’ Shri Swami Shivananda has explained the science of mantras in a very lucid manner. In posts to come I would share my experiences with mantras, Bhakti and Japa-Yoga.
