Bija; 7 Chakra Mantras With Audio Examples

Chakra mantras meditation

Table of Contents

Mantra is a Vedic term made of two Sanskrit words; ‘man’ meaning ‘mind’ and ‘tra’ meaning ‘liberate.’

A bija mantra is a ‘seed syllable’ mantra that resonates at the same frequency as its specific chakras. It is a powerful method of accessing our energy centers while also charging them.

Using a bija mantra in mantra meditation can profoundly affect your mind and help you achieve spiritual liberation.

How to Use Chakra Mantras

Traditionally mantra meditation is practiced sitting down in your chosen meditation position and repeating a mantra either in your mind or out loud.

Using a bija mantra only differs in that our intentions for the practice is focused on our chakras.

We can also combine a seed mantra with another powerful method of chakra alignments, such as pranayama breathing exercises, chakra yoga, chakra mudras, and body scanning the different chakra locations.
