"Through OM the Lord is met face to face."
Sri Adi Sankaracharya

 

Ein Mantra besteht aus Keimsilben, Aussagen oder Sätzen. Diese symbolisieren energetische Zustände, die man mit Hilfe ihrer Rezitation erwecken möchte. Visualisierung dient hierbei als Verstärkung. Im Hinduismus wie auch im Buddhismus ist das Rezitieren von Mantras während der Meditation üblich. Den Veden nach ist Om der Urklang, aus dem die Schöpfung hevorgeht.

 

Pranava Omkara ist die Lebenskraft des Universums. A-U-M (Gott-Materie-Seele), auch OM genannt, chanten Yogis, um sich mit Gott zu verbinden.  Genauer gesagt wird durch das Rezitieren eines Mantras die mit diesem Mantra angesprochene Energie aktiviert. Weiterhin verhilft die Rezitation dazu die Gedanken abzuschalten.

 

 

In beiden Religionen symbolisiert OM das Absolute.

OM enthält alle anderen Mantras.

 

 

Ich verehre Om. Ich grüße Om. 

Ich verneige mich vor Om. 

Ich ergebe mich an Om.

 

Ehre sei Om. Sieg sei Om. Hosianna an Om. Heil sei Om.

Om ist die heilige Silbe. Om ist der mystische Buchstabe. 

Om ist das unsterbliche Akshara. In Om ruht die Welt.

In Om leben wir und bewegen wir uns. 

In Om ruhen wir. In Om finden wir das Gesuchte.

 

Om ist das Symbol von Brahman. Om ist das Wort der Kraft. 

Om ist das Leben allen Lebens. Om ist die Seele aller Seelen.

Om ist wahrlich Brahman. Om ist Satchidananda. 

Om ist Unendlichkeit. Om ist Ewigkeit. Om ist Unsterblichkeit.

 

Om ist die Quelle von allem. Om ist der Schoß aller Veden. 

Om ist die Basis aller Sprachen. 

In Om verschmelzen alle Dreieinigkeiten. 

Von Om gehen alle Klänge aus. In Om existieren alle Dinge.

Om ist das höchste Mantra. Om ist Soham. Om ist Om Tat Sat. 

Om ist eine Lampe auf Deine Füße und ein Licht auf Deinem Weg.

"Yoga and Tantra"

Knowledge and realization of the Koshas

 

Although yoga has been more widely accepted than tantra around the world, at the same time one needs to know that yoga is an offshoot, a part, of tantra. Therefore, we find that many components of tantra, such as mantra and concentration on yantra, are inbuilt in the yogic tradition. The definition of yoga is to experience the unity between body, mind and spirit. These three experiences are an integral part of human evolution.

 

Mantra


The purpose of mantra is to liberate the mental dimension from its self-created bondage. This is the definition of the word mantra. Mantra is the force that can liberate the mind from the forces of illusion and ignorance and raise the level of the mind to experience its real nature. In this context, mantras are associated with realization of manomaya kosha. They are not just sounds or words of power associated with different deities. Mantras have different meanings; some are yogic mantras, some are universal mantras, some are religious mantras. We have created these different associations with a particular person, concept or belief, but these mantras existed before we were able to create our own associations.

Mantras have been recognized in every culture and tradition whether it is Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Vedanta or Samkhya. According to Christian thought, in the beginning was the word, and the word was God. The word is the mantra. According to Upanishadic thought, it is Om.

 

The Mandukyopanishad states in the first sloka:

Omityetatadaksharamidam Sarvam Tasyopavyaakhyaanam
Bhootam Bhavadbhavishyaditi Sarvamonkaara Eva

which means, “The word, Om, the primordial sound, represents the past, the present and the future, the finite and the infinite.”

 

These are some of the attributes of the sound Om. In this way, if you look into every tradition, you will find the concept of mantra already existed before human beings were created on this planet.

Mantra represents the divine, cosmic force, the transformative, superhuman force. Words always convey a meaning. Sounds always convey a meaning; they have a particular pitch, frequency and vibration. This pitch, frequency and vibration is understood by the human mind, not only intellectually but also psychically. Human beings have made the mistake of trying to rationalize everything through the intellect. That is the greatest mistake a human being can make. Intellect is only one component of the mind. There are many components and attributes of the mind which receive, filter and process the information received by an individual in the form of words, in the form of vibrations, in the form of the existing environment. So, the point that needs to be emphasized is that mantras are very powerful transformative agents.

 

Nevertheless yoga is a part of tantra. In fact, there is a system in tantra known as yogachara, living the yogic way. All the practices of yoga, whether it be hatha yoga, raja yoga, Patanjali's yoga, Sivananda's yoga, the Satyananda or Iyengar systems of yoga, all fall into the category of yogachara. In course of time, as the level of human consciousness rises, maybe the true teachings of tantra will again come to light. But until then you should perfect the understanding of yoga.
