MANTRA NEDİR?

“Bhagavad-gita As İt İs” de ki terimler sozlugunde Uluslararasi Krsna Bilinci Toplulugu Kurucu-Acaryasi İlahi Lutuf A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada tarafindan verilen tanim: Askin bir ses ya da Vedik ilahi. Ve ayni yazar tarafindan cevrilen Srimad Bhagavatam’da ki terimler sozlugu mantrayi: Akli yanilsamadan kurtarabilecek ses titresimi olarak tanimlar.

Derken parampara ya da gurular zincirindeki manevi ogretmenden alindigi icin kurtulusun

buyuk zikri olan maha-mantra var.Lakin egitimimiz icin biz mantralarin eski ya da “Vedik” zamanlarda savas araclari olarak kullanimini konusacagiz.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 1-7-20 de soyle ifade edilir: (Kuruksetra savas alaninda ki Asvatthama’nin) hayati tehlikede oldugu icin suya kutsallikla dokundu ve nukleer silahlar atmak icin nasil geri cekecegini bilmedigi halde ilahilerin zikri uzerine yogunlasti

Srila Prabhupada’nin bu dizeye olan aciklamasi asagidaki gibidir;

“Maddi faaliyetlerin ince sekilleri maddi idarenin inceliksiz metodlarindan daha iyidir. Maddi faaliyetlerin bu gibi ince sekilleri sesin arindirmasindan etkilenir. Ayni metod burada nukleer silahlar olarak is gorecek ilahilerin zikredilmesiyle benimsenmistir.”

İlahi Lutfun bir baska heyecan verici aciklamasinda, Srimad Bhagavatam 1-7-27 de belirttigi:

“Brahmastra, atom enerjisi tarafindan idare edilen modern nukleer silaha benzer. Atom enerjisi tumuyle tumden yanma uzerine calisir ve brahmastra da oyle is gorur. Atomik radyasyona benzer dayanilmaz bir isi yaratir, lakin fark sudur ki atom bombasi inceliksiz bir nukleer silah tipiyken brahmastra ilahilerin zikredilmesiyle uretilen ince bir silah tipidir. İlahilerin zikredilmesin ince bilimi de maddidir fakat henuz modern maddi bilim adamlari tarafindan bilinmez.”

Bunu da soylemis olarak ilerleyelim.

 “Mantralarin Gucu” nun de dahil oldugu bircok kitap yazmis olan Thomas Ashley Farrand der ki,

“Onlar muthistir. Onlar cok eski zamanlardan kalmadir. Calisirlar. “Mantra” kelimesi iki Sanskritce kelimeden turer. Birincisi “man” hecesini veren “manas” ya da “akil”. İkinci hece “korumak” ya da “ozgur etmek” anlamina gelen Sanskritce “trai” kelimesinden cekilir. Bu nedenle, en kelimesi kelimesne anlamiyla mantra sozcugu “akli ozgur etmek” demektir.Mantra ozunde, er gec kisiyi aklin sacma isteklerinden kurtaracak akil tarafindan kullanilan bir aractir.Buna ilaveten soyle ifade eder:

“Mantralar  hem belli bir ruhsal enerji frekansina  hem de baslangic formunda bir bilinc haline benzeyen guclu bir titresim baslatir. Zaman gectikce mantra islemi, sonunda mantra tarafindan emilen tum diger daha kucuk titresimleri gecersiz kilmaya baslar . Bireyden bireye degisen bir zaman suresi sonrasinda, mantranin buyuk dalgasi tum diger titresimleri susturur. Sonunda mantra icinde barindirdigi ve mantra tarafindan temsil edilen enerji ve ruhsal durumla tumuyle uyum icerisinde bir hizda organizmanin titrestigi bir hal yaratir.”

The Hare Krsna Mantra:
“There’s Nothing Higher…”
 

A 1982 İnterview with George Harrison 

If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We’ve been polluted so long
But here’s a way for you to get clean

 By chanting the names of the Lord and you’ll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see.

WHAT İS A MANTRA?

The definition given in the glossary of the “Bhagavad-gita As İt İs” by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-acarya of the İnternational Society for Krishna Consciousness is: A transcendental sound or Vedic hymn. And in the Srimad-Bhagavatam translated by the same author, that glossary defines mantra as: A sound vibration that can deliver the mind from illusion.

Then there is the maha-mantra which is the great chant for deliverance as recieved from a spiritual master in the parampara or disciplic succession. But for our edification we will address the use of mantras in ancient or “Vedic” times as weapons of war.

İn the Srimad-Bhagavatam 1-7-20 it states: Since his life was in danger, (Asvatthama on the battlefield of Kuruksetra) he touched water in sanctity and concentrated upon the chanting of the hymns for throwing nuclear weapons, although he did not know how to withdraw such weapons.

Srila Prabhupada’s purport to that verse is as follows:,

“The subtle forms of material activities are finer than grosser methods of material manipulation. Such subtle forms of material activities are effected through purification of sound. The same method is adopted here by chanting hymns to act as nuclear weapons.”

İn another exciting purport by His Divine Grace, in SB. 1-7-27 he states:

“The brahmastra is similar to the modern nuclear weapon manipulated by atomic energy. The atomic energy works wholly on total combustibility, and so the brahmastra also acts. İt creates an intolerable heat similar to atomic radiation, but the difference is that the atomic bomb is a gross type of nuclear weapon, whereas the brahmastra is a subtle type of weapon produced by chanting hymns. The subtle science of chanting hymns is also material, but it has yet to be known by the modern material scientists.”

Having said this, let us proceed.

Thomas Ashley Farrand who has written many books including “The Power of Mantras” says,

“They are formidable. They are ancient. They work. The word “mantra” is derived from two Sanskrit words. The first is “manas” or “mind,” which provides the “man” syllable. The second syllable is drawn from the Sanskrit word “trai” meaning to “protect” or to “free from.” Therefore, the word mantra in its most literal sense means “to free from the mind.” Mantra is, at its core, a tool used by the mind which eventually frees one from the vagaries of the mind.” He further states:

“Mantras start a powerful vibration which corresponds to both a specific spiritual energy frequency and a state of consciousness in seed form. Over time, the mantra process begins to override all of the other smaller vibrations, which eventually become absorbed by the mantra. After a length of time which varies from individual to individual, the great wave of the mantra stills all other vibrations. Ultimately, the mantra produces a state where the organism vibrates at the rate completely in tune with the energy and spiritual state represented by and contained within the mantra.”
