Mantras are single or strung together syllables. Mantras are used in rituals, whispered or chanted in combinations and contexts, setting up patterns of vibrations. One must learn to pronounce them properly and understand their meaning. Mantra sadhana is very difficult as if during practice any drawbacks remain, it can inflict losses. Guidance of a competent guru is quite necessary to attain success.

A sadhak should observe some rules and regulations very strictly while practicing mantra shakti. He must completely believe in the shakti and should avoid anger, egoism. He should observe brahamcharya and should not fear if he sees any miracles during sadhana. The food of a sadhak should be simple and must not contain meat, onion, garlic, etc.

One's subconcious mind can help to find the solution through meditation and recitation of mantras. Continuous sadhana will enable the sadhak to find solution to all problems, achieve peace of mind and removal of mental strain.
