Random Thoughts 17: Mantra Sadhana
2017 Annual Horoscope for All Rashi: https://astromnc.blogspot.in/2017/03/2017-annual-horoscope-for-all-rashi.html
I had written a separate article on Gemstones and some mention of Mantra-Sadhana or simply put ‘usage of Mantra” in that. Recently, someone asked me a question why Mantra Sadhana useful and can it negate or mollify the effects of bad placements of planets in the horoscope.
It is very illogical to my engineering/mathematical (left) brain that you DNA which is reflected in your birth-time planets would change by reciting some mantra say 1 lakh times! For example: If your blood quality is not great due to say 6th house Mars in Saturn’s drushti and also Mars in Cancer (neech) - -How a Mantra would change the blood quality or the flow/supply of blood to various parts of body? Rather, eating Red stuff, Gulkand, dates (red stuff) and also walking at least 5 KM per day would help it quite a bit. How would it change the destiny of your immediate next sibling if Mars is very badly placed in your horoscope? So what are the benefits of Mantra Sadhana? Here, I try to answer it based on my study and also thinking over the years.
Quick notes: Sanchit Karma – 100 GB unpaid of all births so far. Destiny or Prarabdha Karma say 10GB out of the 100 GB that you get to “spend” for THIS Birth which includes both good and bad stuff.
Now consider this destiny as a CAR and it is moving on a complex road/highways/streets etc map of United States of America (as complex and as comprehensive) with various BIG Interstate Expressways/Highways, various parallel byways-highways and then various streets, boulevards, drives etc on the map. Your destiny PATH is say Interstate-35 (I-35) – you can’t jump on to I-90 whenever you wish REGARDLESS of what you do. But yes it is your choice or say a free-will to take as many exists as you want! It is your free will to take 435 or 635 etc as per your plan but get back again in I-35 (At times you are also allowed to get onto I94 (Minneapolis or somewhere around there where these two meet?) but at an appropriate time & also the length of your journey. Your free-will does NOT control other cars on the road which are going on say some distant interstate! J Your free-will does not control the cars going in the opposite direction! J Your free will at the most affects passengers of your cars and say some folks who try to pass you and the folks you try to pass on the interstate! You WILL have to go thru all those cities (MILETONES of your destiny)
However, you can avoid some minor traps and minor issues which are reflected by minor paths, streets, drives, boulevards etc. Your free-will could certainly apply to the things which do not have a great milestone of your life. So your mind always wanders around which street or drive to take and your mind could get really lost after taking an exit & keeps roaming around without finding the Interstate highway efficiently or without bumping into some nasty neighborhoods?
MANTRA-Sadhana helps to FOCUS your mind and your brain. It helps you get rid of the clutter of the daily life, make you forget noise of 1000 different things that are happening around you (channels on TC and advertisements! – Advertisements on TV can’t be part of your destiny!) J Mantra Sadhana magnetizes your brain compounds, aligns your brain-power ALL in one direction which is processing 100s of things which could be total waste! This FOCUS then certainly sees a PATH on the MAZE of life or they maze of the situation you are currently in. (Similar to kids trying to find butter to some animal on a Sunday supplement!) This is a GREAT GREAT power of Mantra-Sadhana. It 1st of all allows you NOT to make further mess of the situation and pull folks that are not part of your destiny to the mix. It helps you control further damage to a situation caused by your destiny or your PATH in the car. Mantra cannot make you go OUT of the map completely and jump into an Aircraft and go to the destination without paying the karmic links of the PATH. Most people on the mother Earth take birth to enjoy the PATH and hardly to reach some destination! There is hardly a Swami Vivekanand or Paramahansa or Christ who do not need SPECIFIC people or specific situations to propagate their thoughts! Even Swami Vivekanand could not escape the publicity of Moon Rahu conjunction or the outspoken nature of Dhanu Surya or importance to sports due to his Vargottam Surya in Dhanu same as Rahul Dravid? Rather his soul chose the magnetic channel to fulfill his desire to affect HUMAN Kind – i.e. he could have taken sort of an Air-Craft but WILLINGLY he went thru the PATH of his chart in a Car so that others are TOUCHED by his divinity or simply thoughts.
So YES Mantra Sadhana is amazing, it does create great vibes around you and it does make you feel better, it HEALS your mind and a healthy mind can heal an ailing body also! Mantra Sadhana is a GOOD KARMA which causes a chain reaction or sequence of events which needs to be used for good karma. It is not for your promotion or your increment! J BUT it IS indeed to get better at your work – you as a person which eventually gets you what you want. Your Mantra Sadhana will NOT change LIVES of other people NOR will it change their destiny – OVERTLY or by some mysterious force! J Mantra Sadhana alone cannot make or break a person but it will certainly help make a person!
So Mantra Sadhana is purification of mind by some sprinklers which aligns chemicals in your brain in such a way that you focus & channel you brain power in right direction and start doing good karma which eventually uplifts you. Mantras are repeated to double triple etc their impact so yes AWARTAN does help for sure. You would see it in SUFI material also – “Ya Garib Nawaz” is said 2.3 times in Kwaja Mere Khwaja or even “Afreen Afreen” is said multiple times to create an “impact” on your mind or conscious and subconscious mind/brain. Even “Ya Ali” is said multiple times whenever I hear it. So it is not just Hindus but even Christian, .Muslim, Jews literature also knows the power of Mantra, they call it by different names.
Mantra Sadhana can make you not increase your unpaid Kriyamaan-Karma in this life which keeps getting added to the Sanchit Karma. So instead of just spending the 10GB you came with, you end up creating 5 GB more which gets added to the Sanchit Karma! J Mantra & Meditation can certainly “help” you reach next state of self-awareness. Meditation is a highly evolved state of Mantra-uchchar where Mantras or words (Akshar) are not needed to get mind to focus!
