Existing now and existed oncespiritual teachings are related to one degree or another of detachment from the surrounding world, immersion in oneself and understanding of those ideas that the doctrine preaches. The task of any person striving for enlightenment is to approach as close as possible to the Creator, the Creator, to reach that level of spiritual development when all the secrets of the Universe become clear, and the divine music of the spheres will touch the ears.
The concept of mantra
In any religion there are prayers with whichpeople turn to their deities, as well as psalms, hymns and other hymns, praising, glorifying God and His companions. In the eastern religions the role of such chants is played by Buddhist mantras. True, unlike, for example, from Christian chorals, they have a very special specificity. Let's start with the fact that in ordinary prayers, psalms, hymns the text is important. More precisely, the general meaning of this or that phrase. We say: "Lord, save and save me, a sinner!" Or "Lord, save me a sinner and save!" - the essence in both cases will remain the same, and prayer will be heard by those to whom we address. The more sincere we pray, the more energy we send, the more likely it is that we will receive an answer to our requests. Buddhist mantras work somewhat differently. These are solemn glorifying hymns in which the role of rhythm, music and sounds in the aggregate is important.
The meaning of them can change from one falselytaken note, incorrect intonation, not so pronounced sound. They can be compared, perhaps, with a tuning fork, tuned to pure vibrations of absolute hearing. According to the explanations of the Tibetan monks, Buddhist mantras are the sound symbols of God. They can sound correctly only when the person has adjusted himself accordingly. It will be true to say that they reflect the internal state: how spiritually pure a person is, how much he could give up all superficial, momentary, mercantile. Therefore, a simple recitation of sacred word combinations aloud or about themselves without preliminary work on themselves, the desired result will not. Buddhist mantras will work only when harmony is achieved between their verbal, verbal design and internal state. To become more clear, we give an example. At school, we all study Pushkin's poem "Madonna". As we know, it is dedicated to Natalya Nikolaevna, the wife of the poet, and is associated with the Sistine Madonna Raphael. When we simply memorize the verse by heart, analyze it, then the mind understands the feelings that the poet experienced and which formed the basis of his creation. But when we contemplate the portraits of Goncharova and the work of Raphael, the effect is completely different. We too are imbued with the delight of beauty, in us the process of inner purification, catharsis, takes place. The same catharsis, the same steam of feelings, emotions, the peak of the most inspired experiences occurs in a person tuned to the mantra. He, as it were, visualizes his dialogue with the Higher Powers, with representatives of the subtle world, with those spheres to which he meditates.
Classification of mantras
All Buddhist teachings are based on upbringingsuch virtues as morality, patience, generosity, energy, wisdom and meditation. In difficult situations, to improve relations in the family, positive changes in personal life are well helped by Buddhist mantras of love. They were composed in Sanskrit thousands of years ago and remain unchanged to this day. Translation into other languages, these sacred hymns are not subject. Syllables from which mantras consist, or rather, their transcription, can be written, for example, in the English alphabet, and read. To the bearer of the European consciousness they can seem completely devoid of meaning, something like vocal exercises. People who are brought up in the appropriate cultural traditions, they give a lot. So, Buddhist mantras for attracting money, spoken in appropriate situations and in the right key, should help in the same way as prayers.
The most famous mantra, designed to makelife is harmony, prosperity and happiness, material stability, is the sound of "ohm". There are mantras of Ganesha and other deities. If you penetrate the spirit of Eastern religions, Buddhist philosophy, you can discover a lot of high truths.
