Aum Sri Sai Ram
“Always Have God’s Name Dancing On Your Tongue”
The chanting of mantras and prayers give practitioners an unidentified strength to apply their mind on their service to those in need. Manthras are mystically powerful formulaes to be recited for spiritual uplift. A Manthra is a prayer, hymn or sacred formula that embodies Divinity or that aspect of God which is involved. Of all Manthras, the Pranava (AUM) is the highest and the best. It is the very head and crown of them all.
Sathya Sai Baba on Mantra:
“A mantra has two aspects. The first is the ‘manana’ or what has been learned has to be taken into your mind. The second is the aspect of ‘trana’, that is what has been taken into your mind has to be firmly established therien. By taking the Divine into your mind and firmly establishing it therein, if you can carry on with your life and do the work that is ordained for you, then your life will be full of happiness.” Quote from Summer Showers in Brindavan, 1974, page 22

Each of these three Manthras dedicated to the Lord Sathya Sai are in the holy Vedic metre called Gayathri (the chanting of which leads to liberation).
