મંત્ર-પ્રાર્થના

Mantras were originally conceived in the Vedas. Most mantras follow the written pattern of two line “shlokas” although they are often found in single line or even single word form.

The most basic mantra is Om, which in Hinduism is known as the “pranava mantra,” the source of all mantras. The Hindu philosophy behind this is the idea of nama-rupa (mind-body), which supposes that all things, ideas or entities in existence, within the phenomenological cosmos, have name and form of some sort. The most basic name and form is the primordial vibration of Om. Om is considered to be the most fundamental and powerful mantra, and thus is prefixed and suffixed to all Hindu prayers.
