In Sanskrit, Chakra translates into “wheel”. These “wheels” can be thought of as vortexes that both receive & radiate energy. There are 72000 Nadis, and the areas where these Nadis meet are called Chakras. Among, many there are 7 major energy centers, known as chakras in the human body. They run from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Emotions, physical health, & mental clarity affect how well each chakra can filter energy. This, in turn, dictates how pure the energy is that’s emitted from different regions of the body.

Sound is a vibration. Thus, when you chant a mantra, you can feel your body vibrate which harmonies all your seven chakras. You will feel energized, balanced, and a stronger sense of health. As you chant a mantra it brings transformation in you while leading you to more power, strength, and spiritual growth.


Mantra is a sound, word, or group of words that is considered capable of “creating transformation.” Traditionally, it has been used for both prayers and affirmations. “OM,” is a traditional mantra that acknowledges all that is, without any form of judgement. “Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu,” is a prayer mantra to bring peace to all beings. The Sanskrit word mantra consists of the root man- “to think” (also in manas “mind”) and the suffix -tra, meaning “tools or instruments”, hence a literal translation would be “instrument of thought”.

There are more than ten million mantras in existence. Some mantras are as short as one syllable. Others are several syllables long. The vibration om is one of the most well-known universal mantras. According to the ancient Vedic tradition, the vibration om contains every vibration that has ever existed – and every vibration that ever will.

Bija Mantra

Among many types of mantras, one of the most powerful and popular forms of a mantra is the Bija Mantra. ‘Bija’ means seed, so they are basic root mantras and these “seed sounds” are core sounds – and there’s one for each of the 7 chakras. When you chant a particular beeja mantra, you release energy within that specific chakra – facilitating movement and vitality in your being.


Yogis, have different methods to revive their bodies, but ultimately with the intention of drawing yourself inward. Among many, ‘Mudras’ is a powerful tool for accomplishing this. The term mudra applies to the use of hand gestures during meditation that carries specific goals of channeling your body’s energy flow. There are numerous known mudras that have been developed over the centuries.

Mudra means “seal” or “closure” in Sanskrit. Different areas of the hands are connected with areas in the body and the brain. So when we place our hands in yoga mudras, we stimulate different areas of the brain and create a specific energy circuit in the body. By doing this, we help generate a specific state of mind. Hence, every chakra in our body has specific mudras.

Mudras and chakra mantras

In the yoga world, you may have heard of mantras, mudras, and chakras. Do you know you can use all of them specifically for chakras?

Mantras and mudras for chakras are powerful tools to bring balance and health to your body, mind, and spirit. Mudras can enhance a mantra’s power by redirecting the energy and vibrations generated during the chanting back to the body. Hence bringing balance to the chakras.

What is so special about making a mudra while chanting a mantra? Chanting a mantra while doing a mudra enhances each other’s effect and helps to redirect the energy back to the body to cleanse and balance each of your chakras.

What Are Mantras and Mudras

Mudras and mantras are not specific to yoga. Throughout centuries mudras and mantras have been in use by different religions, cultures, and traditions.  You can find mudras in Hinduism and Buddhism in India, Tibet, China, and Japan. Mudras form a big part in Indian dance, spiritual practices, and iconography. 

Let’s have a brief look at what mudras and mantras are. 

What Are Mudras? 

Mudras are physical gestures made with the hands and fingers. The word mudra comes from Sanskrit, which means gesture, mark, or seal. Mudras are gestures to create or bring joy. 

Mudras are an ancient mystical science that can help you balance the energy flow in your body. You can use mudras as tools to bring balance in your energetic field by re-directing the prana. 

You can use mudras and mantras to deepen your meditation practice. 

There are hundreds of mudras and mantras to choose from, depending on your intention. You can find specific mudras according to your intention. Some practices like Kundalini yoga and Tantra use their own mudras.

A mudra may involve the whole body in a combination of asana, pranayama, bandha, and visualisation techniques, or it may be only a hand position. You can also combine mudras with other yoga practices.

It is common to use mudras during meditation. Kundalini yoga uses mudras during meditation, chanting of mantras and a combination of asanas while applying bandhas. 

What Are Mantras? 

Mantras are sounds considered sacred in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Yoga. You can find mantras formed by one syllable or a combination of syllables. The original mantras are in Sanskrit, but today you can find them in various languages. 

The word mantra in Sanskrit means “the thought that liberates and protects.” Mantras in yoga help to focus the mind. The sound and repetition of the mantra calms the mind and stop it from wandering around. A mantra affects your body, mind, and spirit, bringing harmony to all your being. 

The power of the mantra comes from the sound vibration itself. When you chant, the vibration of the mantras come from different parts of your body. It can come from the abdomen, the diaphragm, or the throat. These are pure vibrations that tune you with the mantra so that you become one with the mantra.

A mantra can activate and speed up your creative spiritual force. It will help you to direct this energy to your benefit or the benefit of others. By practising mantras, you can get rid of overwhelming recurring thoughts. Mantras will help you stay calm, reducing stress and anxiety.

Why Do People Touch Their Fingers When Meditating?

You have probably wonder why people touch the tip of their fingers while doing meditation. It is likely to be because they are using mudras during their meditation. 

Mudras are like an electrical circuit that gets to be closed when the fingers touch. So, energy circulates throughout the body. The theory behind mudras is that the fingers are the endings of the Nadis (channels of energy throughout the body). 

Keeping the fingers in specific positions in a mudra creates an electromagnetic current. This electromagnetic field brings balance to the whole body. Mudras provide a means to access and influence the unconscious reflexes and habitual patterns.

Each finger connects to one of the five elements:  Air, Water, Fire, Earth, and Ether. So, when we made a mudra, the fingers will connect with one or more of the elements.

  • Thumb -fire (Agni)
  • Index finger – air (Vayu)
  • Middle finger – ether (Akash)
  • Ring finger – earth (Prithvi)
  • Little finger – water (Jal)

If there is an imbalance in these elements, the immune system weakens, and it can lead to disease. By doing mudras, you can bring balance back to the body. 

In general, mudras are performed either in combination with or after asana and pranayama.

What Are Chakras?

Chakras are like wheels of energy or vortexes in your body. They are part of the energy body, and each chakra has a frequency. You can bring your chakras into balance with that same frequency. Chakras locate at specific points where energy channels called Nadis. There are 72 000 Nadis in they connect at the 7 major centres. These 7 centres are the chakras.

Each of your 7 chakras has a particular colour, mantra, situation, and range of experiences. These 7 chakras are Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar plexus chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra. 

The mantras for chakras are known as Bija, Beeja, or Seed mantras. The Beeja mantras are in the Sanskrit language, each of them invokes specific energies from the Universe. Seed mantras are one-syllable words. They are the core sounds of creative energy.

Beeja chakra mantras are among the most powerful mantras you can come across. They have incredible power to unlocking growth and healing. Bring balance to each of your chakras by working one of them at a time. 

Mantras for Chakras

When you chant a mantra, the sound resonates with your chakra. The mantra and the chakra have the same frequency. So, when a chakra is out of balance, it means its frequency is out of tune. 

Like a musical instrument that needs tuning, the mantra chanting helps to bring the chakra to its frequency tune. So, you will feel more at ease physically and mentally when your chakras are in balance. Your life will flow without effort. 

Let’s have a look at each of the seed sounds, their mudra, and their chakra. The mantras for chakras are one-syllable mantras chant during meditation to bring your chakras into balance.

These are the Beeja sounds for each chakra: 

  • Root chakra or Mooladhara – Lam – Prithvi mudra
  • Sacral chakra or Swadhistana – Vam – Varuna mudra
  • Solar plexus chakra or Manipura – Ram – Rudra mudra
  • Heart Chakra or Anahata – Yam – Vayu mudra
  • Throat chakra or Vishuddi – Ham – Aakash mudra
  • Third eye chakra or Ajna – Aum – Gyan mudra
  • Crown chakra or Sahasrara – Aum – Thousand petals mudra

Chanting seed mantras can help you bring balance and harmony to your body, mind, and spirit. The use of a mantra will help you focus your attention. But more importantly, its vibration will affect your body at a subtle level to connect you with your true self and the universe. 

Mantras for the chakras can raise your vibration with that of the universe. You will feel at ease with life. Your body will be healthy, and your mind will be free of stress and worries. You will be able to relate to others with love and compassion. You will be able to support yourself and enjoy the pleasures of life.
