Always there to help and a good friend. Dude keep it up UP14 zindabaad!! There are numerous other important mantras. They are attributed to the sage Vasugupta of the 9th century C. Sambhavopaya to 1—22Saktopaya to 2—10 and Anavopaya to 3—45 are the main sub-divisions, three means of achieving God consciousness, of which the main technique of Saktopaya is a mantra. But "mantra" in this context does not mean incantation or muttering of some sacred formula. The word "mantra" is used here in its etymological signification.
The divine Supreme I-consciousness is the dynamo of all the mantras. Deha or body has been compared to wood, "mantra" has been compared to arani—a piece of wood used for kindling fire by friction; prana has been compared to fire. Sikha or flame has been compared to atma Self ; ambara or sky has been compared to Shiva. When prana is kindled by means of mantra used as arani, fire in the form of udana arises in susumna, and then just as flame arises out of kindled fire and gets dissolved in the sky, so also atma Self like a flame having burnt down the fuel of the body, gets absorbed in Shiva.
Repetition of a "mantram" i. The mantram is to be used frequently throughout the day, at opportune moments. Yet some mantras are claimed to enhance intellect, prosperity, wealth or fame.
There are many mantras in Jainism ; most of them are in Sanskrit or Prakritbut in the last few centuries, some have been composed in Hindi or Gujrati languages. Mantras, couplets, are either chanted or sung, either aloud or by merely moving lips or in silence by thought. But the greatest is said to be the Namokar or Navkar Mantra. This fivefold salutation mantra destroys all sins and of all auspicious mantras, it is the foremost auspicious one. Universal Compassion Pratikraman also contains the following prayer: Micchami Dukkadam In Jainismforgiveness is one of the main virtues to be cultivated.
I would like to confess my sinful acts committed while walking.
I honour your permission. I desire to absolve myself of the sinful acts by confessing them. I seek forgiveness from all those living beings which I may have tortured while walking, coming and going, treading on a living organism, seeds, green grass, dew drops, ant hills, moss, live water, live earth, spider web and others. I seek forgiveness from all these living beings, be they one sensed, two sensed, three sensed, four sensed or five sensed, which I may have kicked, covered with dust, rubbed with earth, collided with other, turned upside down, tormented, frightened, shifted from one place to another or killed and deprived them of their lives.
By confessing may I be absolved of all these sins. Buddhism According to Jack Kornfield"The use of mantra or the repetition of certain phrases in Pali is a highly common form of meditation in the Theravada tradition. Other used mantras are directed toward developing loving kindness. Mantra meditation is especially popular among the lay people. Like other basic concentration exercises, it can be used simply to the mind, or it can be the basis for an insight practice where the mantra becomes the focus of observation of how life unfolds, or an aid in surrendering and letting go.
Along with the ten mantras, the Great Compassion Mantrathe Shurangama Mantra of the ShurangamaHeart Sutra and various forms of nianfo are also chanted. The Shurangama Mantra may be the longest mantra. There are Thai Buddhist amulet katha: Mantra is restricted to esoteric Buddhist practice whereas dharani is found in both esoteric and exoteric ritual.
Dharanis for instance are found in the Heart Sutra. The term " shingon " lit. The word dharani derives from a Sanskrit root dh. Ryuichi Abe suggests that it is generally understood as a mnemonic device which encapsulates the meaning of a section or chapter of a sutra. Dharanis are also considered to protect the one who chants them from malign influences and calamities. The term mantra is traditionally said to be derived from two roots: Thus a mantra can be considered to be a linguistic device for deepening one's thought or in the Buddhist context for developing the enlightened mind.
They have also been used as magic spells for purposes such as attaining wealth and long life and eliminating enemies. The distinction between dharani and mantra is hard to make. We can say that all mantras are dharanis but that not all dharanis are mantras. Mantras do tend to be shorter.
Both tend to contain some unintelligible phonic fragments such as Om, or Hu. If one understood the workings of mantra, then any sounds could be a representative of ultimate reality. He is generally credited with the invention of the kana, but there is apparently some doubt about this story amongst scholars. Buddhism then became essentially an indigenous religion in a way that Confucianism had not. And it was through language and mantra that this connection was made. In this, he covers some of the same ground as modern day Structuralists and others scholars of language, although he comes to very different conclusions.
For esoteric Buddhism "a" has a special function because it is associated with Shunyata or the idea that no thing exists in its own right, but is contingent upon causes and conditions. See Dependent origination In Sanskrit "a" is a prefix which changes the meaning of a word into its opposite, so "vidya" is understanding, and "avidya" is ignorance the same arrangement is also found in many Greek words, like e.
The letter a is both visualised in the Siddham script and pronounced in rituals and meditation practices. In the Mahavairocana Sutra which is central to Shingon Buddhism it says: Thanks to the original vows of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvasa miraculous force resides in the mantras, so that by pronouncing them one acquires merit without limits".

The word Shingon means mantra. There are thirteen mantras used in Shingon-Buddhism, each dedicated to a major deity. The mantra for each deity name in Japanese, its equivalent name in Sanskrit, a transliteration of mantra, and the Japanese version in Shingon tradition are as follows:
