Bija; 7 Chakra Mantras With Audio Examples
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.
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.
