The Sanskrit word mantra- (m.; also n. mantram) consists of the root man- “to think” (also in manas “mind”) and the suffix -tra, designating tools or instruments, hence a literal translation would be “instrument of thought”.

An Indo-Iranian *mantra is also preserved in the Avestan mantra, effectively meaning “word” but with far-reaching implications: Manthras are inherently “true” (aša), and the proper recitation of them brings about (realizes) what is inherently true in them. It may then be said that manthras are both an expression of being and “right working” and the recitation of them is crucial to the maintenance of order and being.

Indo-Iranian *sātyas mantras (Yasna 31.6:) thus “does not simply mean ‘true Word’ but formulated thought which is in conformity with the reality or ‘poetic (religious) formula with inherent fulfillment (realization).’

Latin word Mentor (also in its usage in English and other languages) is a cognate (cf. Mens Sana in corpore sano = Healthy mind in a healthy body), as is the root preserved in most Slavonic languages as Mądr-/Mudr-, for wisdom and Sage.

The Chinese translation is zhenyan 眞言, 真言, literally “true words”, the Japanese on’yomi reading of the Chinese being Shingon (which is also used as the proper name for the prominent esoteric Shingon sect).

The uniqueness of ParaTAn Sound Healing comes from chanting the mantras directly into specific areas of the client’s body.

ParaTan uses Mantra Japa

Mantra Japa was a concept of the Vedic sages that incorporates mantras as one of the main forms of puja, or worship, whose ultimate end is seen as moksha/liberation. It could be used either to worship the outer gods and goddesses or oneself or the inner self. Essentially, Mantra Japa means repetition of mantra, and it has become an established practice of all Hindu streams, from the various Yoga to Tantra. It involves the repetition of a mantra over and over again, usually in cycles of auspicious numbers (in multiples of three), the most popular being 108. For this reason, Hindu malas (bead necklaces) developed, containing 108 beads and a head bead (sometimes referred to as the ‘meru’, or ‘guru’ bead)The devotee performing Japa using his/her fingers counts each bead as he/she repeats the chosen mantra. Having reached 108 repetitions, if he/she wishes to continue another cycle of mantras, the devotee must turn the mala around without crossing the head bead and repeat.

To attain single-pointedness of mind, repetition of mantra’s can be done in the following ways

Vaikhari Japa (speaking)
Upamsu Japa (whispering or humming)
Manasika Japa (mental repetition)
Likhita Japa (writing)

Mantra Sakthi and Agni

Regular practice of Agni Homa will help burn all the negative emotions and revitalize the body. This ceremony consists of chanting mantras while sitting around the Agni pit, offering special herbs and sacred materials. Agni emits powerfully deep, cleansing, and healing vibrations on psychological, emotional, and physiological levels.
