What is Mantra Sadhana

Mantra Yoga commonly known as Mantra Sadhana is an ancient art of concentration. As defined by science, the mantra is a word or sound repeated to aid in concentration in meditation. However, if you dig further, you may find that the root sound of Mantra refers to “Man” that means “to think,” and “Tra” means “Tool or Instruments”. In simple words, Mantra is considered as a tool of a thinker. Nowadays, when people have started to lose their inner peace and concentration in a hassle of life, the ancient practice of Mantra Sadhana is circling back to the mainstream. YogMantrana offers a helpful course to learn more about Mantra Sadhana and how to begin with the practice.

A brief history of Mantra Sadhana

There are several practices from the ancient wisdom of yoga that were overlooked for a long period in the western world. However, due to the current struggle to cut down from temptations that drive away all the attention and focus, Mantra Sadhana has been reintroduced into the western culture. First composed nearly 3000 years ago in Vedic Sanskrit in India, Mantra has been chanted for thousands of years.

What is Mantra?

As mentioned earlier, Mantra Sadhana is the special practice of repeating or chanting specific words or sounds. Similar to asanas that keep our body engaged, Mantra aids to keep our mind engaged and far away from negative or tempting thoughts. Most of the beginners may have encountered the sound of Om repeated in many yoga classes, this is perhaps one of the simplest and most sacred mantras of all. Mantras are often repeated in the sequence of three, six, nine, twenty-seven, 108 times, and in some cases, you can chant more than this, for instance, Chandra Namaskar mantra can be chanted for 10,000-11,000 times over a specific period of time.

Fundamentals of Mantra Sadhana

Just like the asanas of yoga, there are different types of mantras chanted in different sequences. Most of the mantras are names of the gods chanted repeatedly. In some cases, Mantras are arranged in a special sequence.


When it comes to a mantra, it is not the word or sound used but the approach that differentiates the whole nature of worship. Mainly, there are three different approaches known as; – bhava, tatvacintana and mantra. AtYogMantrana, you will learn about these approaches in more detail.

Rules of chanting

In Mantra Sadhana, there are different rules for chanting a mantra, which is found in Siksha- the science of chanting. When it comes to chanting it is completely different from singing. Some of the key factors that are involved in the chanting are - pronunciation, intonation, and stress. As the one who is chanting these mantras, you should focus on:
• Duration of each tone
• Avoid singing mantras
• Should sit with your back upright
• Chant it along with Swara
