A Mantra is a ‘mind tool’–a sacred sound vibration spoken in Sanskrit originating from India. Sanskrit is such an ancient language that it is said it is at the root of all language origins.
When Mantras are spoken in a rhythmic repetition, they carry a vibrational sound quality which can filter throughout our body. This sound can offer healing for your body, inner peace, deeper connection to your higher source, attainment towards your goals and lift you to a higher level of consciousness.
It is said that carrying, wearing or marking your body with sacred mantras or symbols act as a protection and connection to your goals, aspirations and intentions.
