Ancient Vedic Secrets Of Mantra And Vibrational Healing Explained…

In these times of fear and mental imbalance and uncertainty, finding peace through meditative practices can be a great source of peace.

Here I am reproducing an article I wrote almost 20 years ago. I think it’s appropriate given the Coronavirus and what’s happening. These practices not only still the mind and bring peace but can have a very positive impact on physical well-being.

In modern times, the Beatles, Taylor Swift, and Coldplay and other great bands have been able to do the same thing. What is it precisely in these sounds that move your heart and emotions? How is it possible the music to bring tears to your eyes or a smile to your face even if you’re feeling down?

The power of sound or vibration is irrefutable. In some instances it can be used to smash a wine glass, even demolish a building. In your spiritual endeavour too, sound is as part of an ancient tradition through which the inner worlds are revealed. Personal growth and transformation may be accelerated. Within this context of self-regeneration, healing and spiritual evolution, the use of sound and other vibrational techniques is termed Mantra Yoga.

No one doubts the power of speech and sound. One insulting word can push an otherwise ‘balanced’ person’s blood to boiling point.

Speech conjures up images and concepts

It’s through the power of thought, fuelled by inspiration and imagination that inventions and scientific discoveries are manifest in the natural world too. This process of sound, linguistics and its expression has a fourfold process. In its first manifestation, it occurs in an undifferentiated state – or the intentional sphere. This is the formative arena in which an idea begins to take shape.

It is only at the second level that we begin to attach a visual connection as to what the idea ‘is’. At the third level we mentally verbalise or connect a word to the visual image or concept. Finally, at the fourth level, we actually articulate the word referring to the idea.

Vedic Philosophy has clearly outlined these four levels of sound manifestation and regards the whole study as an exact science.

These four levels are referred to as

  1. Paravak the undifferentiated state – or first impulse towards though
  2. Pasyanti or that first mental impulse
  3. Madhyami is intermediary speech or attachment of speech mentally
  4. Vaikari articulated sounds or manifest speech

The concept of the ‘word’ as revealed in Veda and other religious and philosophical doctrines, reflects these four levels of manifestation in the accounts of creation. We find this idea in the Hebrew Genesis – ‘In the beginning was the word…’

This ‘word’ naturally reflects the idea of sound or the creative level at its most primal source, hinting at a stage beyond even Para Vak – a ‘supra’ undifferentiated mode or the Supreme Being Itself. It is a mode of Abstract Knowledge.

Yoga, Vedanta and other forms of spiritual practice are methods by which the practitioner can trace the path back to its original source and realise that the Divine Undifferentiated State of Oneness. Hence Mantra Yoga is a most powerful technique in realising that state beyond the Beyond. The ‘word’ is, in fact, the first articulation of sound or creation and is termed AUM.

There is often a misconception that AUM is that Supreme Being; however it is clear from a reputed spiritual authority and scholars of Vedanta that..


“AUM is only the symbol for the Eternal Being”.

Yoga, Vedanta and other forms of spiritual practice are methods by which the practitioner can trace the path back to its original source and realise that the Divine Undifferentiated State of Oneness.

Hence, Mantra Yoga is a most powerful technique in realising that state beyond the Beyond. The ‘word’ is, in fact, the first articulation of sound or creation and is termed AUM.

Aum (or in Hebrew/Christian tradition, AMEN ) is that primal sound from which all language and creation emerge. Time – past, present and future are contained within it. All alphabetical sounds are represented and encompassed by it. The ‘A’ is guttural, ‘U’ is labial and ‘M’ nasal in articulation – all three being the absolute physical parameters of any possibility of speech and sound.

This AUM, is the substratum of all sound and vibrational possibility, is called the Pranava Mantra. It is a great liberating vibration and the study and practice of its sound and inner meaning is a great meditation in itself.

ANCIENT VEDIC SECRETS OF MANTRA AND  VIBRATIONAL HEALINGThe Mantra AUM is also called Taraka – or the sacred power of Deliverance. It is also the esoteric mantra of the Hindu and Buddhist Goddess Tara – the second of the ten great Goddesses in the path called Sri Vidya. Goddess Tara has sometimes been depicted as a beautiful female steering a boat. This is analogous of Her power in ferrying one across the ocean of Temporal Existence to the other shore of Spiritual Liberation.

The recitation of AUM has a toning and balancing effect on the physical, mental and emotional bodies. As one meditates on the Primal Sound, higher harmonics or octaves may be heard. To the meditator, they may sound like high pitched whistles which arrest the mind and transfer the attention to the higher levels of being within.

To the meditator, they may sound like high pitched whistles which arrest the mind and transfer the attention to the higher levels of being within.

The Vibration of Mantra is most potent when the sound, the meaning and the practitioner become one. According to Vedic and Tantrik tradition, through constant repetition, either aloud or mentally, the practitioner transcends the universal laws of cause and effect ie transmigration or reincarnation.

From AUM, literally hundreds of thousands of mantras or divine vibrations have emerged. Ancient Vedic seers have spontaneously experienced their arising with a perfect understanding of their meaning and impact.

It is for this reason that each mantra is associated with a sage or rishi who initially revealed it to the world. It is also connected to a deity or subtle being, of which the mantra is considered to be the very sound form. Within the mantra is the bijakshara or seed of power, which releases its specific potency.

Usually, the mantra is imparted to the seeker by an adept”. This is called Diksha or initiation. Traditionally the adept has realised the power or shakti of the mantra through protracted discipline and recitation.

The number of recitations is determined by the number of syllables within the mantra. Very often the recitation maybe 100, 200, 300 or even 500,000 over a specified period of time. This is called puracsharana – and is a powerful way of releasing the immense power latent in the sound.

When given directly to the seeker it is called Chaitanya, conscious or ‘alive’. In other words, the adept having practiced and realised the power within the vibration has brought conscious power to it. When the mantra is given by a genuine adept, there is no doubt about its impact and effect. It is usually immediate, transformative and permanent in its action.

The many varieties of mantra can be classified into the following categories:

Shanti or Peaceful Mantras

In general, these mantras are done purely out of unconditional love and spiritual self-development. The illusion of the material realms is lifted and evolution is accelerated through their use. Any fears that may be preventing progress are also removed through these mantras. are used to induce positive and spiritual vibrations within the practitioner or another. These mantras remove inhibitions psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.

👄Mohan or Attraction

These mantras are used as a means of infatuation and self enhancement in worldly matters. This includes areas of profession, romance and social interaction. They further the prospects of the practitioner. In some cases the mantra may be used for controlling the will of another. In this case the motive of the practitioner determines its positive or negative value - this would then possibly fall under the Vaishikaran category.

👥Akarshan - or distant Attraction

These mantras may be used to attract a person living in distant areas.

💃Istamban or Immobilisation

In cases of opposition by enemies or counter-forces these vibrations are used to completely paralyse an opponent. They are very useful in case of litigation or harassment by an individual or group.

🙎Uchchatan or Disturbance

These mantras can inflict damage, doubt and fear in the person they are aimed at. The mantra invokes a deity who will negatively disturb the recipient.

🚶Jrambhan or Changen

This category is similar to Vaishikharan in that the practitioner may induce the recipient to act in the way that he desires. Hypnosis could be categorised as a Jrambhan technique in that the subject may be made to act out whatever is suggested.

💔Vidiveshan or Division

In some instances it may be desirable to separate individuals. A man who continually abuses a woman in relationship should be removed. In a case such as this, the use of Vidiveshan mantra would bring positive results for the victim, his wife. The same mantras may be used by an unscrupulous individual to separate a perfectly happy couple. Again, motive plays a critical role in mantras of this sort.

Maran or Death

These mantras are used solely to kill. There may not be any physical ailment in the victim and the death will be swift. Pointing the bone by Australian Aborigines is known to bring about death in the one to whom the bone is pointed. This could well be associated with some type of traditional 'maran' methods employing mantras and powerful suggestive techniques.

There are many aspects of life which cause trouble but do not respond favourably to conventional systems of treatment. There may be health problems, business or relationship conflicts. Perhaps a psychological disorder which is not amenable to treatment troubles the individual. It is in these extreme cases that people are prepared to try an unorthodox system of healing.

In Vedic Astrology, Jyotishis or astrologers ascertain the strength and weakness of planets at birth and are able to recommend appropriate techniques for alleviating those problems. Each planet has its unique mantra through which the practitioner may enhance that planet’s vibrations.

This isn’t unlike a vitamin supplement to increase a nutrient lacking within the physical system. In utilising the planetary vibrations we tap the ethereal and spiritual frequencies of the planet and begin to resonate in harmony with the energy of the presiding deities.


The Planetary Vibrations

The Solar System

Following is a brief description of the planetary vibrations. Reciting their mantras during meditation over a fixed period of time will definitely yield positive benefits materially and spiritually. The use of gems may also enhance the vibration of its ruling planet and deity.

dISEAse and healing

For diseases of a chronic and even life threatening nature, the great Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra of Lord Shiva has been known to ward off death in many cases.  This mantra generates an enormously potent power of restorative value. It is taken from the famous Vedic Chant the Shree Rudram and is as follows –

We worship the three-eyed Lord Shiva who is fragrant and nourishes all beings – may He liberate us from death for the sake of Immortality as the cucumber is severed from the creeper and its bondage.

Recitation of this great mantra daily 108 times or as many times as possible on your birthday is considered auspicious. Not only does it cure and save one from dreaded diseases but is known as a great protector against accidental or unnatural death.


Another powerful and traditional mantra into which most Hindu Brahmins are initiated is the Gayatri Mantra. It is said to be the destroyer of all afflictions and Karmas. It is very purifying and pacifying. It is also a Moksha Mantra or Vibration of Liberation for spiritual seekers. Its vibration is very sweet

For success in competition or any major undertaking, recite and study the effects.


✻ Mantra Meaning ✻

The Mantras of the 10 Goddesses is known as Sri Vidya. This is the true worship and practice of Shakti or Tantra Yoga. The mantras are highly esoteric and secret and can only be practised under the guidance of an expert after initiation is given. It’s normally given to the student in his right ear and then recited for a set period.

For effective results, the above mantras should be recited for at least 100,000 repetitions. Usually 1008 repetitions daily, minimum, yield the best results. A predominantly vegetarian diet, with a disciplined schedule of work, rest and play, early rising is prescribed.

Meditation pose

A still meditative pose is required for the mantras and vibrational energy to be activated.


Once the practitioner begins the practice he/she should complete a set number daily. Once the 100, 200 or 500,000 repetitions are complete, the sincere practitioner will no doubt have a glimpse of the presiding deity or rishi of the mantra. This is a signal that the vibrations are in fact giving rise to the Shakti or power and producing the desired effects.

During the practice, the mind should be calm and clear and undisturbed by any worldly concerns. The attention should be clearly focussed on the inner meaning of the vibration. The spot selected for practice should be clean, comfortable and harmonious to the mind. Only then can the practitioner gain the full benefits of this extraordinary path of vibrational therapy. Facing East or North is advised with the simplicity of life being most preferable.

Once you have completed the set number of repetitions, various benefits will be quite noticeable. These include the lightness of the body, the brightness of the eyes and clarity of the mind. Worldly and professional success may be one of the more pronounced fruits of the practice.

Through a continued renewal of self by persistent vibrational acceleration, the subtle forces of the human being are re-aligned and re-vitalised. Not only are the physical and mental spheres strengthened and purified, but the inner senses also become more refined. Such powers as clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience will become evident.

In the tradition of Mantra, it is a foregone conclusion that subtle powers will arise as a result of this type of inner purification. As the mantra continues to vibrate within, the Chakras or energy vortexes are fully activated and balanced. The upper centres such as the throat, brow and crown relate to the higher occult powers hidden in man and can be tapped through some of the mantras given.

In relation to the categories of mantras mentioned earlier, it should be stressed that any mantras used for nefarious means and selfish ends, especially Maran, Istamban and Vaishikharan mantras will inevitably resound back on the user employing the vibration. This will inevitably result in fear, emotional complications, disease and even death. This matter shouldn’t be taken lightly.

The power of sound in modern science and technology is well documented and has been used in industrial as well as military operations. If sonic guns and other devices can be used to demolish buildings, what of the infinite power of AUM or its feminine counterpart HREEM, the Cosmic, active and Creative Power?


Planets are also represented in numeric yantras or mandalas.

Digital Yantra

The practise of mantras can be further elaborated by the Yantra or visual representation of the sound. This aids the practitioner by engaging the sense of sight whilst the mantra is being recited. The visual diagrams or spiritual ‘circuit boards’ are in fact conduits of cosmic energy and work in tandem with the mantra being recited.

A case in point would be the great Shree Chakra or Shree Yantra. It is known to many as the multi triangled Yantra of the Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari (Goddess Laksmi too is invoked through the same Yantra).

While visualising the bindu or central point, the mantra OM SREEM MAHATRIPURA SUNDARYAI NAMAHA or OM SHREEM MAHALAKSMYAI NAMAHA may be recited, 108 or 1008 times daily, contemplating the Shakti or power desired – In the first case of Labita – divine beauty, spiritual wealth, love and peace. Through Laksmi, material wealth, abundance and profit are realised.

These yantras may be purchased commercially but seem to have little or no value unless prepared under strict guidelines by qualified Tantrik practitioners. The efficacy of mantra and vibrational healing also relates to the time of the day and year when the activity is commenced. Different phases of the Moon, Sun and planets determine the fruits of the activity of the mantra.

A Kashmir Shaivite scripture succinctly describes the true inner meaning of mantra and the real objective to be gained by the soul seeking liberation. It says ‘The Godward Turned Mind is Mantra’. The mind becomes that which it contemplates. The vibrations and resonances of the images, concepts and feelings within us produce our realities. This accounts for the growing body of evidence suggesting that disease and ageing may indeed have their root causes in those subtle vibrations called thought.

As the Shiva Sutras say, in other words, the contemplation of the Divine, leads to a divine spiritual state, as do the pondering of the meanings inherent in mantras. Our association of consciousness with their vibrations produce radical change. Conversely, our association with negative emotions and ideas produces just that – disease and distress.

As a focussing tool, the subtle vibrations of mantras redirect our attention to higher pathways for the human soul. At the same time we acknowledge the essential requirements of organic existence and can still satisfy and enjoy those needs too.

Food, shelter and conjugal happiness needn’t be obliterated from our lives. As the mantra delivers satisfaction and inner contentment, faith grows and the mind is more able to focus. The beauty and appeal of this universal and spiritual approach to healing through Mantra, Yantra and Tantra are that it is quite acceptable to enjoy everything in this life as well as the next


Love and MarriageMarriage and relationships are an important aspect of our lives.  When Venus,  the ruling planet for emotional and marital satisfaction is weak life becomes distressing.  You lose the capacity for joy. Sharing life with someone is a great thing but often disharmony and difference of opinion create separation and heartache. Mantras to Venus and Friday fasts are advised to improve conjugal happiness.

In the matter of career, if Saturn is weak it lessens one’s discipline and restricts achievement. For this reason, it is important to empower Saturn with the use of the planetary vibrations. Fasting on Saturdays is also recommended if you have the willpower.

In some texts, it is said that Saturn may be appeased through the feeding of old or destitute men on a Saturday with salty products. Some of the measures mentioned do indeed sound strange but there is an age-old and time tested authority behind these statements and in practice, they do seem to work.

The ideal goal of astrology, both in the eastern and western traditions is to provide a clear and practical guideline for our lives. Vedic astrology offers a framework by which we may enhance our awareness and spiritual growth through contact with the inner Light of our heart.
