Hanuman Chalisa: The Hanuman Chalisa is a Hindu devotional hymn addressed to Hanuman. It includes forty chaupais or verses on Hanuman that’s why the word chalisa comes which means chalis or forty. The Hanuman Chalisa invokes something within — they are vibrations.The reader just needs to know that he is repeating something that will clean up his mind.The Hanuman Chalisa removes obstacles. Hanuman is strong and powerful and invokes power within. So have belief and faith that something good will happen. It’s a devotional practice, different from listening to songs. As you continue chanting, your heart starts to open. Science cannot explain the effects of chanting.The proof is that billions have benefitted down the ages. Things don’t stick around for so long, if they are not based on true knowledge.
Gayatri Mantra: Mantra is a path to purification of mind.You can begin the mental purification by practising a very powerful mantra known as Gayatri Mantra.This mantra is known for its cleansing effects on the mind.The Gayatri Mantra must be pursued with great reverence and devotion.The mantra is: Aum bhuur bhuvah svah Tat savitur varennyam Bhargo devasya dhimahi Dhiyo yo naha pracodayaat The mantra provides the practitioner with an opportunity to connect with the spirit and stay on the path of realising the Divine light. Practise this mantra each morning after conducting your purification ritual for the body. Gayatri Mantra brings the mind to a very calm place, and when the mind is calm, it breaks down all illusions, so it does not think, ‘I need this, or that, or do this or that’.At that moment, you can talk to the spirit or god within. Everybody is spiritual, but we allow the mind to take over.
