What is Mantra?

‘Man’ means ‘mind’ and ‘tra’ means ‘liberation’. Thus, mantra is to liberate the mind from its bondage through sound vibration. The very first subtle manifestation, after consciousness and energy interacted with each other, was sound. Sound is the manifestation of consciousness and energy in their purest form. However, the sound that we hear through the ears is gross, material noise. Subtle sound is spandan, vibration, which is the first evolute. Shiva Charitra describes the emergence of the world. It is described that Shiva manifests in the world in the form of sound vibration. This vibratory layer is called shabda sharir, in which ‘shabda’ means sound and ‘sharir’ means body.

Practicing yoga and meditation while being busy with a job and family life. How to combine it ?

Yoga is nothing separate from one’s daily life and job. This is the path of karma sannyasa; renunciation through karma; work. As karma sannyasa, one lives in the external world from total harmony, making a sadhana from daily life. One does not need to escape what he is doing, but increase his awareness and develop one’s state of being while he is performing his duties. A karma sannyasa may have a family, regular job, but is not attached to either of them. In all situations, he remains in balance.
