Mantras: sacred sounds of power

A mantra is a mystical energy encased in a sound structure. Every mantra contains within its vibration a specific power. Upon concentration and repetition of a given mantra, its power and energy take form. Mantras open the heart, fill the mind with purity and generate harmony and divine love.
