The word mantra means “tool” for the mind”. From the Shiva Sutras: man= to reflect, to be aware, tra= that which saves: “mental awareness by which one feels one’s identity with the highest reality enshrined in a mantra, and thus saves oneself from a sense of separateness and difference characteristic of the world”. Sally Kempton says that mantra are articulated sounds that approximate the “unsounded sound,” the vibration of the infinite that throbs in the silence of pure consciousness. High, subtle vibrations are said to be embedded in the syllables of mantra; they are said to be sounds heard by sages long ago (Rishis).
Upon being harassed by negative thoughts, one should cultivate counteracting thoughts.
