Seed of MantraS – Beej Mantra
‘Yat Pinde Tat Brahmande‘
“All that is outside you is within you”
The statement says ‘all that is in universe is within you’. Here You is Pinda which means Microcosm & universe is Brahmand which means Macrocosm. Thus our body (Pinda) is the miniature Universe (Brahmand). The whole universe is originated from sound and vibration. Everything is sound in the universe, so in the body and each cell vibrates on particular sound. Chanting or saying any word will generate a sound. Sounds are the source of creation, maintenance and destruction. If one wants to create, maintain or destroy anything in life and beyond life THE TOOL IS SOUND. In vedas, ancient Hindu scriptures this tool is given as Mantra and the root of all Mantras is Beej Mantra.
Introduction To Beej Mantras
Beej Mantra is made up of two words i.e. “beej” and “mantra”. The word
beej means seed and mantra means a word or group of words which protects mind. Hence beej mantra means the short term sounds generating from the combination of varnas (letters of sanskrit language).
“Beej mantra can be defined as small vibrating sounds by recitation of which one’s mind can protected.”
There is an other way to understand Beej mantras. The word ‘beej’ means ‘seed’. Seeds are small in size but they are potentially strong in nature storing the code of whole tree. When we plant seeds, after some time they begin to sprout out. With proper care like watering right amount at right time, exposure to light and providing fertilisers and nutrients from time to time then after hard work of some monthswe get results from that seed.
