Mantras are positive statements and are not any religious, God worshipping sounds.  Mantras help us to trascend  from the energy sucking physical and emotional state to an energy giving intelligent Awareness state. This helps to increase SAL Energy (Jeeva-Dhaara Sakthi). 

Chanting Mantras like “Om Namah Shivaya, OM Namo Narayana or Om Para-sakthi Namaha” 1008 times a day, can also generate SAL Energy. Na-ma is the reverse of Mana (emotional mind). Emotional mind always drains SAL Energy. Reversing the attitude of the mind by chanting Cosmic Energy pattern generates more SAL Energy. This reversing is meant by the word “Namah”.

      Shiva (not any person) means Awareness, auspicious, pure (without Selfish Ego dirt). All these are positive thoughts which increases the SAL Energy in karma Bank. “Om Namah Shivaya” means “let my mind be aware of the Cosmic Awareness, Shiva or SAL Energy”. This sound generates the Life Force, without which our battery is dead (Shava). A body becomes Shava, when the Life Field Awareness Shiva is not there. Chanting the mantra 1008 times a day even while doing work or walking is excellent to increase the SAL Energy to run our life smoothly.

    Narayana (not a guy) is the Cosmic Intelligent pattern and so this sound Energy creates more of the Intelligence aspect of SAL Energy.

      Para-Sakthi (not a lady)  refers to the Cosmic SAL Energy and so increases the total SAL Energy functionalities.
