Sanskrit is arguably the root of all language. The primordial sounds that make up all words are very basic, yet powerful, tools that can be used to create a rhythmic relationship with the vibrations of the universe. This is called “entrainment.”
The science of “Mantra” (mind vehicle or instrument) is the repetition of sacred sounds either silently, whispered or chanted, having meaning or meaningless, and says that every sound is able to affect the chemistry of the body and mind and alter thought patterns. It is a very powerful technique that has a very distinct and definite effect on our energies. Our senses become more acute and our minds become sharper and more perceptive as the jumble of unnecessary dialogue clears away, creating coherence in the brain. It has the ability to alter reality, including our physicality.
With that intellectual information, we offer you these two Mantras:

Om Ojo Vatyei Namaha ( ohm oh-joh vaht-ye-ah nah-mah-hah ) Salutations to Her who is full of limitless energy and makes it available to me.
Chanting this mantra puts you in touch with the limitless energy of the supreme feminine. This is a great mantra to begin or end a silent meditation.
