Beginning – Mul Mantra
I posted this YouTube Video:
So I’ve obligated myself to writing this blog post, and getting started with the blog in general. It’s a good place to start.
Mul Mantra. Such a blessing. I LOVE IT. I once played it for a friend who said her third eye was buzzing (when I was playing it). I’ve learned that it resonates with, opens and balances the root chakra. Makes sense – remember where we came from has a certain primal comfort to it.
The best way to explain it is to show the translation:
We are One. That’s our Truth. Image of the Infinite. Beyond Fear, Beyond Revenge. Deathless for Eternity. Self Illumined. Meditate! Primal Truth, True for All Time. True in This Moment. Truth Shall Ever Be.
When you chant this mantra, you’re vibrating that. Only, when you chant in Gurmukhi, you’re using a language which vibrates in and of itself much higher than plain modern English. Mantra works even more specifically. The pattern you hit the top palette of your mouth in makes a difference. There are 84 meridian points on it. When a point is struck repetitively, and when a specific sequence is struck repetitively, it makes a recognizable difference in the brain. Studies have been done.
I’m not big on digging up research but if you want me to, leave a comment and I’ll get the sources for that for you.
I’d rather just experiment myself and experience what I experience personally, and see if it matches up with what I’ve heard. Sometimes I find out what I experience in yoga has scientific studies about it after the fact, too. Pretty cool.
Enjoy this chant, and let me know how it feels for you!!
