Beej Mantra


Beej Mantra: Meaning, Significance, and Benefits

The beej mantras or Beeja mantra are very powerful words that are used in the invocation of gods and goddesses in Hinduism. These small mantras are believed to have been born from the sound waves that were created during the creation of the universe. Every one of these mantras is associated with a divine being, and the sound frequency that forms during the chanting of each beej mantra works in invoking the God or goddess and helps their cosmic energy to flow through the body. Recitation of these mantras consistently works wonders if someone is intending to entreat the powers of the divine figures, as chanting the mantras dedicated to each deity and adding the beej mantras to them please the gods and goddesses the most. These beej mantras have healing power to them as they heal both the body and mind.

Beej mantras are single or compound words, where the power lies in the sound of the word.

Beej Mantra: How do they help

Beej mantras and each word that is uttered during the chanting has an important meaning, as they are like the foundation of the mantra, the seed. But to break down the words or the sound and convert them into simple and understandable language is useless. Understanding the science behind these mantras can take ages, even then it might not get completely clear. They appeared naturally, and were passed down from Rishi’s to their students, and finally to the rest of the world and have made their place over time. There are many different beej mantras, which are allowed to different gods and goddesses, but there also exist beej mantras that are dedicated to different planets, using which one can appease and calm a planet that has been the reason for disturbance in their horoscopes or kundali, and save themselves from the malefic effects.

These beej mantras are extremely powerful and effective, and when they are recited with faith and purity, the performer will have any of their desires fulfilled. To chant this mantra, it is important to have a peaceful state of mind, which can be achieved by reciting the mantra “OM” continuously with a soothing voice, until the mind is calm and focused. After this, the recitation of the specific beej mantra should begin. Ending the mantra with a similar “OM” brings the mantra into the full cycle.

How to chant Beej mantras

A clean body means a clean soul. So keeping the external part of the body is very important when starting with the Beej mantras.

  • Take a bath, preferably early in the morning before starting. If it is not the most suitable time to bathe, sprinkle water over the head and pray to the universe for a cleansed soul.
  • A Quiet and calm environment is needed to stay focused and concentrated. Sit in a quiet empty place, where no one else is present and you won’t get disturbed for 30 to 40 min, depending on the number of rounds you want to chant the mantra.
  • The word and the pronunciation are the keys to unleashing the power of the beej mantras. Try to pronounce every syllable clearly with a lot of determination. One can also take the help of a Guru to guide them on the right way to chant the beej mantras.
  • Determination is key. Don’t give up if there are no visible results, because every mantra takes time to work. Don’t have any trace of doubt about the self and the process, because eventually, the results are going to show, if the mantras are being chanted with pure intentions and calm conscience.
  • Chant for at least 108 times a day to see the best results.
  • One can also try to incorporate meditating every day before chanting the beej mantras because meditation is an excellent way to find peace and solace. Meditation can relieve stress and stabilize the soul.
