This article is based on the discussion that happened during the Group Chanting of Mantras session held on August 14, 2010.
1. Balance Your Chakras First
Chant the Bija Mantras, “Om Lum Namaha, Om Vum Namaha, Om Rum Namaha, Om Yum Namaha, Om Hum Namaha” for three to five minutes, louder.
Why we need to do this?
Sometimes after chanting various mantras or trying healing techniques, we couldn’t solve a problem. If that’s the case, then chant the Bija Mantras, which cleanses, clears, and harmonizes the chakras – Basic, Hara, Solar Plexus, Heart, and Throat chakras. These mantras go to the source of the problem and rectify the problem you are facing.
2. Get Access to Universal Energy and Guidance
Hari Narayana means universal energy. It has to be with us all the time, in plenty.
We need proper guidance too. To be guided properly, we need to chant the mantras, “Gopalam” and “Govindam”.
Chant the mantra, “Hari Narayana Gopalam Hari Narayana Govindam Gopalam Govindam”.
3. Avoid Having Starting Trouble and Setbacks
Lum and Dham inside these mantras, means there would be no regression. In general, all of us have a starting problem. However, after we start, the mantra, “Lum Dham” will help us to move forward.
With the help of the universal energy Hari Narayana, I can walk on without regression. The mantra, “Hari Narayana Gopalam Hari Narayana Govindam” will help you move forward, without getting stuck up in life.
Let us say, if your past holds you, then you can’t go forward in life. Fear would hold you too, from progressing in life. Gopalam Govindam releases your past and the fear you have inside, too, so that you do move forward in life.
During early morning, when you feel your legs are heavy and not able to walk, then chant this mantra.
Now, chant the mantra, “Hari Narayana Gopalam Hari Narayana Govindam (2), Gopalam Govindam (2) – Ho”.
The mantra activates the Solar Plexus chakra, which is required for movement in life.
“HO” is a switch word. It gives us happiness.
4. Wipe Your (Karmic) Debts
Chant the mantra, “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram” now.
If you are in debts, then by chanting the mantra, “Latham Sridharam Lalitham Baskaram Lalitham Sudarshnam”, you can wipe them out. However, if you are in a tight financial situation, this mantra, “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram” eases the situation and one will be saved from availing loan. There won’t be any financial hiccups, as you would always have money. This is just a one aspect of the mantra.
“Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram” re-programmes our mind and thus life, though! Our Life is decided (formed) by our karma, our thoughts, emotions and reactions to incidents in life. Only when we remove them from within, we will have a different perception of life (and work differently towards your goals). Otherwise our life will be a routine, doing the same thing day and day out. NLP says, “If what you do today is same as last week, then you will achieve the same result as last week”.
Why? This is due to cellular memories, which are memories of the past, stored inside us. These memories and unwanted thoughts, which determine our present, are removed by Sadashivam. Thus, we de-program ourselves.
Lalitham Chandrasekaram, if chanted alone, works like the Bach Flower remedy, Rescue Remedy, during emergency situations. We don’t want somebody to be like a vegetable in the ICU room. We want them to come out alive and do well. Then, chant “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram”
5. Heal Your Shadow Self
I have a shadow self (a dark side of me). Therefore, I invite people, who reflect that part/self. If somebody cheats me, then it means that I have the pattern of cheating others, in some other way.
Don’t ask why it is happening to me? Because, you have that shadow self, which attracts the unwanted situation. To remove the shadow self is the mantra, “Lalitham Sadashivam”.
Before marriage, one needs to chant this mantra, “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram” a lot, so that one attracts only good life partner.
Interestingly we choose somebody as our partner. Then after some time, we don’t want them. After that, when we meet somebody else, it’s like the old person coming as a new person. However, at least in the next Janma (lifetime), we have to attract some good person J
6. Balance Your Personality
Chandrasekaram helps us to handle emergencies, as we become panicky then. Chandra (moon) in Sekaram (cool) activates the female energy and our panic feeling comes down.
Sadashivam represents Arthanariswarar, who is half-Sakthi and half-Shiva, representing the perfect male and female energy. Sada also means always and Sivam means happiness.
By chanting, “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram”, we get balanced, are cool and always be happy.
Chant the mantra, “Lalitham Sadashivam Lalitham Chandrasekaram” now.
7. Finally, Release Your Expectations about Your Goals
Let us finish with Namashivayam.
The other mantras help us to achieve our goal. In the end, we need to release the desires and come out. We should remove our deep-rooted desires, to move forward to go to next step.
In fact, if your desires are not fulfilled, it’s because of our expectation, which has to removed, by Namashivayam. Please refer this blog, “The Happiness Mantra”, to know why: http://healbymeditation.wordpress.com/2010/07/30/the-happiness-mantra/
Let us chant, “Namashivayam” now.
Please note: the below discussion happened during the Workshop on Multi-Dimensional Healing Practices by Naran S. Balakumar on 22nd August, 2009
Mantras For Swine Flu
No epidemic disease like Swine Flu can affect you, if you chant the mantra, “Om Howm Vum Joom Saha” constantly. This was coined by the guru from ancient India Sukrachariar.
This mantra addresses Siva and requests him, “Please deliver or free me from this deadly evil or disease with your fragrance and by giving the life rejuvenating essence”. To get the same effect of Mruthyunjaya Mantra, Sukrachariar – created a short form by using only bija mantras. These mantras will protect us from the evil effects of atmosphere and viruses.
Doctors’ advice us that we should stay away from patients affected by Swine Flu by at least 8 feet. This mantra purifies 200 sq ft around you. It purifies us, house and atmosphere. Therefore, to manage Swine Flu, chant this mantra.
This can also protect people from earth quacks and natural calamities. Wherever there is a calamity, write the name of the country/place, place the paper in the left hand, close it with right hand and chant the mantra. This will heal the country as well as yourself.
Do it three minutes in the morning and three minutes before sleep. Of course, more you do it then more it’s better. Chant this mantra whenever you were travelling, driving, and visiting crowded places.
Destroys unwanted energy around
Generates Amritham (ever –life essence) that gives vital essence, which is present in the Hara Chakra. It strengthens our body against any infection.
It gives power, physical immunity and vitality.
SA means Agni (which also destroys unwanted energy). HA means space. Unwanted energy in the space is destroyed and destructed – both inside and outside us.
Bach Flower Remedies for Swine Flu
The remedies that you require are: Rescue Remedy, Mimulus, Crab Apple, and Red Chestnut.
The fear is so much rampant for Swine Flu that a mask that used to cost only one rupee is now 20 rupees. So people use hand kerchief. Take Mimulus for swine flu for this known fear.
The fear might go. However, whenever we read newspapers and TV, we see only negative stuff about Swine Flu. Therefore, we become panicky. Rescue Remedy will act on this state of mind effectively. Dissolve it in a glass of water and keep sipping it once in 10-15 minutes.
When we keep thinking about infection, whenever we go outside, we tend to clean our hands often with water. This fear of infection indicates Crab Apple. It’s is both a physical and a mental cleanser. Any unwanted stuff will be removed by it from our auric field. When the virus attacks, it will cling to the auric field. This will be vanquished by Crab Apple.
We might get worried about the near and dear ones – especially about our children, whether they will be affected by the flu. This requires Red Chestnut. Therefore, parents should add this to the combination – Rescue Remedy + Mimulus + Crab Apple.
If you chant the Sukrachariar mantra as well as take Bach flower remedies then no swine flu can attack you. If you are shy of chanting the mantras, then pills are available at the Bach Flower Centre to get the same effect.
