Mantras are sacred words, phrases or sounds that are chanted or recited repeatedly as part of spiritual practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and other Indian religions. The word “mantra” comes from the Sanskrit language, where “man” means “to think” and “tra” means “tool” or “instrument”. Thus, a mantra is a tool or instrument for focusing and controlling the mind, and for connecting with higher consciousness or divine energies.
