In a mantra, sound and meaning are one
“Mantra” is a Sanskrit word for an affirmation. It consists of two elements: manas, which means “mind,” and tram, which means “protection.” Mantra, in turn, means “mind protector.” Alternatively, the second syllable of “mantra” could come from the word for “instrument” or “tool.” The purpose of reciting a mantra is to change our state of consciousness by causing our mind to resonate with the mantra’s vibrations instead of dwelling on other thoughts.
The best-known mantras for the eight most important deities
For our mantra jewellery, we were inspired by the most powerful mantras for the eight best-known deities in the Buddhist, Tibetan, and Hindu traditions, incorporating these verses in raised or embossed lettering in our elegant pendants. We have carefully reproduced the characters correctly, including diacritical marks, for an authentic text that unfolds its full traditional power. You can choose from the Tara, Shiva, Ganesha, Lakshmi, Mangala, Krishna, Gayatri, or Kali mantras.
All of our fascinating mantra pendants are crafted from solid sterling silver. Many of our mantra pendants are also available with a classic gold or rosé gold finish. The gold finishes are produced by gold-plating the sterling silver pieces with a layer of pure 24-carat gold.
“A mystical energy encased in a sound structure” – Swami Vishnu-Devananda
In Sanskrit, each syllable stands for a particular quality of energy. As a result, it can transmit cosmic vibrations. This transmission can take place through sound, deep identification, or a visual representation – as in a Tibetan prayer wheel, in which each revolution corresponds to a recitation of the mantra. In traditional belief, the syllables alone can cause our souls to resonate with the highest being, whether we understand their meaning or not.When we repeat a mantra, we concentrate on the affirmation it contains in order to free ourselves to experience the joy that exists within all beings – and feel united with the divine.
