Bija Mantras or Chakra Mantras are one syllable sounds which are used in meditation. The soothing sounds create healing vibrations which stimulate each of the chakras. Each Chakra has a different sound or frequency.
Bija Mantras are also known as seed mantras. This is because when practiced you plant a seed of growth and healing. By tapping into an individual Chakras frequency we can help to create balance in that chakra during meditation.
The one syllable sound is repeated on the exhale as you sit in meditation allowing the vibrations to flow through your body.
The student should sit chanting the Bija Mantra for a minimum of 5 minutes to feel a benefit but over time can sit for longer to increase the power of the healing energy.
