The power of mantras

What is a mantra?

A mantra is a word or saying imbued with power.

In our modern times many people do not believe in such things.

However those who love another person feel love whenever they think of that other person or say the name of that person.

The gambler always thinks of cards and often inspite of himself always beholds dice and cards.

The drinker only needs to think of drink to become thirsty.

The money man lives with dreams of more money.

The ambitious man dwells on thoughts of fame and the plaudits of the multitude.

In all these cases the names of the obsession have become idolised.

Now imagine that instead of swimming in the depths of selfishness and personal desire you chose to do something for your fellow man.

All of us can enoble our lives by the simple mechanism of mantras that extol the higher values of helping each other.

Yes really mantras can work.
