What are the benefits of mantra meditation?

The Thundering Roar Of The Trimantra

Many people recite the mantra quietly in their mind but at the same time their mind is muddled with so many other things that the mantra gives no benefit. That is why you are told to find a place where you can be alone and then recite the mantra out loudly. It is fine if I do not say it out loud but all of you should. My mind is different altogether.

Whenever you are in an isolated place, you should recite this Trimantra in a loud voice. When you are by a river or a stream, you should say it out loud, loud enough to rattle your brain!

Questioner: The explosion that is created by speaking loudly will reach everywhere. So it is understandable why the mantra should be said out loud.

Dadashri: There is tremendous benefit in reciting it loudly. Unless it is recited loudly, the mechanical process within a person does not stop. This applies to everyone. For me the machinery (mind, intellect, chit and ego) within is shut off, but for others, unless they speak loudly, the machinery within keeps working. Unless a unity between the mind, speech and body (ekatva) is achieved within, the benefits of the mantra will not be realized. That is why I tell you to speak loudly, because when you speak loudly, your mind and your intellect will come to a halt. If you speak softly then your mind will bother you from within. Does that not happen to you?

Questioner: Yes it does.

Dadashri: Even the intellect will interfere from within. That is why you are told to speak loudly. And when you are alone by yourself, then say it out loud, loud enough to blow the sky away, because everything within stops when you speak out loud.

Atma Gnan Is Not Attained By Any Mantra

Questioner: Can one speed up the process of Self- Realization by reciting a mantra given by a Guru?

Dadashri: No. The difficulties in your life will be reduced, but only if you say all these three mantras together.

Questioner: Are these mantras not for removing ignorance?

Dadashri: No. The Trimantra is for the purpose of removing the obstacles that come your way in life. The Gnan that I give you is for getting rid of ignorance.

Obstacles Minimized with Trimantra

A Gnani Purush will never lead you on a path where your work is futile. He will show you the path of minimum effort. That is why you have been told to recite the Trimantra five times in the morning and five times at night.

After Gnan you become the pure Soul (shuddhatma), and Chandubhai*, your relative self, remains as your neighbor. So when Chandubhai* encounters any difficulties in life, you should say, 'Chandubhai*, recite the Trimantra at least once. It will lessen your oncoming difficulties.' Chandubhai* has to interact in the worldly life and he will encounter obstacles but reciting the Trimantra will reduce the difficulties for him. When the difficulties come, their impact will be reduced. This is why the Trimantra has been placed here.

When you encounter difficulties in your business, you should recite the mantra for half an hour or an hour at a time. You should complete the whole forty eight minutes if possible. Otherwise recite this mantra five times daily. But say all the mantras together and also say Sat Chit Anand along with it. All other mantras of any religion are included in Sat Chit Anand.

The significance of this Trimantra is that it will destroy all your worldly obstacles. If you recite it every morning, all your worldly difficulties will be destroyed. If you need a book to follow, I will give you one. This mantra is written in there. Please take the book from here.
Reciting the mantras simply prevents you from binding sins or deviating to a wrong path. Even past karmas will be minimized. You only need to recite them repeatedly when you encounter obstacles, otherwise say it five times everyday in the morning and at night.

The Trimantra is such that it benefits those who recite it, whether they understand it or not. But those who understand its meaning will reap a greater benefit. Those who recite it without the understanding will gain limited benefits for having just spoken it verbally. A tape record does not benefit when it plays the mantra, but as long as there is a presence of the soul within, whoever recites it, will definitely benefit!

Words are the cause for the continued existence of this world. If you utter the words of highly elevated beings, you will be blessed, but if you speak the words of the wrong people, you will encounter difficulties. That is why it is important to understand all this.

Chandulal* =  Whenever Dadashri uses the name 'Chandulal' or the name of the person Dadashri is addressing, the reader should insert his or her name for exact understanding.
