Healing Mantras of Tremendous Power 'Prayer is the very breath of God'

Healing Mantras of Tremendous Power

’Prayer is the very breath of God’

’Prayer is the very breath of God’. Therefore it is possible to experience ones personal God through the mystic sound of Mantras. Since God is all-pervading, he also exists in the form of the vibration of all sounds. Sanskrit believes that the sound of the word never gets ruined and that it has an everlasting value. Words in Sanskrit open out from their seed (beej) form. The root or seed may create a word, yet the word will vibrate to its best, and gives it tremendous power. These mantras anyone can chant, whenever the need arises, which I know is, always. A mala (rosary) of 108 beeds is recommended to be chanted. The simplest and most powerful Mantra is Om.
It is easier to achieve ones objective when one has faith, and also when the prayer is uttered with sincerity.
One generally prays when one has realized that for achieving that, which one desires, one needs to rely upon a Higher Power.
The above attitude, weakens our ego and purifies us, as we acknowledge our shortcomings.
Below are the mantras that one can chant for health, prosperity, success and strength and peace.
