A MANTRA is a mystical energy encased in a sound structure. Every mantra contains within its vibration a certain power. Upon concentration and repetition of a given mantra, its energy is liberated and takes form.

There are different types of mantras. Some called Beej (Seed) mantra. They have no exact meaning but act directly on the nerves of astral body. The other type of mantras, having a combination of words, and having some meaning also set up powerful vibrations in the body.

Most common, however is the deity mantras, in which a specific form with attributes is visualized along with the repetition of the sound.

Initiation - If possible, before attempting Jaap one should seek out a guru and receive mantra initiation from him. Only those who are themselves pure can give initiation to others. Therefore it is important to find a qualified guru to successfully implant the mantras in the disciple’s body. If no guru can be found, one may select any mantra that seems appropriate to fulfill his desires, assuming Lord Shiva as his guru and start repeating it with mentally with faith and devotion everyday.

The efficiency of the jaap is accentuated according to the degree of concentration.
