A BĪJA MANTRA (Seed Mantra) is assigned to each Chakra, and each petal of the Lotus blossom carries a Sanskrit syllable that is described as the “guardian” of that particular Chakra. When we repeat the Mantra belonging to a Chakra in meditation we unite with the quality and vibrational energy of the Chakra and with this awaken its qualities within us.

How can we manage without words?
We give and take through words,
Speak understand and discern through words.
Indifferent to where we ourselves go,
We cannot escape from words.
Words bring us together,
Words give us knowledge.
Through words (Mantra) we are liberated.
Through words, we recognise the Supreme and the illusion.
Swāmī Shivānanda says:
Bhagwān Srī Dīp Mahāprabhujī has transmitted the divine word to me
His word accompanied me across the ocean.
