MANTRAS
The use of mantras is also a very important form of Yoga, and it is especially
recommended as a powerful astrological remedy as well as a spiritual practice and
meditationtechnique.
A Mantra is a sound formula, either a syllable, a word or a combination of words, that
whenrepeatedenoughtimeswiththerightintonation,devotionalfeelingandconcentration
of the mind, has the capacity to change the vibrations onthe astralbody,neutralizingor
changingthenegativeeffectsoftheadverseplanetaryinfluences.
