Mantras; The Tradition behind Them Originated in Vedic India Times
By Twinty Karat
What is a mantra? It’s a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of “creating transformation”. A mantra’s use and type varies according to the philosophy and school associated with the mantra.
In ancient times mantras originated in the Vedic tradition of India. Later they become an essential part of the Hindu tradition and a customary practice within Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism.
The use of mantras is now widespread throughout various spiritual movements. Such movements are based on, or off-shoots of, the practices in the earlier Eastern traditions and religions.
In the context of the Vedas, the term mantra refers to the entire portion, the metrical part as opposed to the prose Brahmana commentary.
With the transition from ritualistic Vedic traditions to mystical Hindu schools of Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and Bhakti, the elite nature of mantra knowledge gave way to spiritual interpretations. Such interpretations of mantras meaning translation of the human will or desire into a form of action.
Mantras now exist in Various Schools and Several Countries
Mantras from the earliest times were composed in Vedic Sanskrit by Hindus in India. They are at least 3000 years old. Mantras now exist in various schools of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism.
In Japanese Shingon tradition, the word Shingon means mantra. Similar hymns, chants, compositions, and concepts are found in Zoroastrianism, Taoism, Christianity, and elsewhere.
Mantra meditation helps to induce an altered state of consciousness. A mantra may or may not have a syntactic structure or literal meaning.
Throughout the Various Traditions Mantra Understanding Differs
Mantra sounds are manifestations of ultimate reality. The vocal sounds of the mantra have inherent meaning. The meaning is independent of the understanding of the person uttering them.
In spite of this, such understanding of what a mantra may symbolize or how it may function differs throughout the various traditions. It also depends on the context in which it is written or sounded.
In some instances there are multiple layers of symbolism associated with each sound.
Hindu tantra eventually came to see the letters as well as the sounds as representatives of the divine. However, other traditions and countries prized written language much more highly.
The writing of mantras became a spiritual practice in its own right. However, written mantra-repetition in Hindu practices using Sanskrit is well-known to many sects in India.
