Chanting mantras

 
Chanting mantras, either silently or aloud, is a conscious method of controlling and directing your mind. Happines or sorrow, joy or regret are vibratory frequencies in the mind. We can call them attitudes, or beliefs, but fundamentally, they are vibratory frequencies or thought waves. They determine the kind of program our mind ”plays”. Which scenario we choose to hold on to becomes our vibration, defines how we feel and what we project to others. We can exercise our right to choose at any time. When we chant a mantra we are choosing to invoke the positive power contained in those particular syllables. Whether it`s for prosperity, peace of mind, increasing intuition, or any of the other multitude of possible benefits inherent in mantras, simbly by chanting them we are setting vibrations into motion that shall have an effect. It dosen`t actually matter if we understand the meaning of the sounds or not.
 
We are creating with every word we speak, and even with every word we think. Words are like boomerangs, every vibration we send out shall come back to us sooner or later. We get what we tune in to. ( From Kundalini Yoga: The flow of Eternal Power by Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa)

Sat Nam is the Seed Mantra or Bij Mantra and it is the most widely used in the practice of Kundalini Yoga. Sat means the Truth; Nam means to call upon, name or identify with. Sat Nam means Truth is my identity and I call upon the eternal Truth that resides in all of us. Chanting this mantra awakens the Soul, and more simply means "really.

Taken together it means, "There is one Creator whose name is Truth. Great is the ecstasy of that Supreme Wisdom"!
