Mantra is a path to purification of the mind. One can realize the benefit from reciting mantras by practicing it as a daily yoga practice. These mantras came into existence as part of yogic practices. All the great gurus and yogis talk about mantras. One may not even know the meaning of the mantras, but if one has the intention of learning, he will benefit from the vibrations. The mantras are composed of Sanskrit words.
Mantras invoke positive vibrations within us. The yoga practitioner just needs to know that he has to repeat or recite something that will clean up the mind. So while practicing it, the yoga practitioner as spiritual seeker ought to have belief and faith that something good will happen. The practitioners repeat Sanskrit words to fill the mind with beneficial sound vibrations. Sanskrit syllables have a therapeutic quality, whether they are spoken aloud or said internally.Mantras bring about a state of resonance between the individual and depths of his inner being. The sound patterns of the mantra stimulate the mental & psychic nature of the yoga practitioner and the purpose & meaning of the mantra maintain spiritual health.
Om written universally as ॐ or Aum written as ओ३म् is the mantra said to be primordial mantra in Sanskrit. Reciting the mantra as a part of daily yoga practice provides the yoga practitioner an opportunity to connect with the spirit and stay on the path of spirituality for realizing divine light.
