‘Mantras’ in Hindu religious practice denote vibration which has the power to align the chakras in the human body. A mantra can be a syllable or a group of words that has spiritual power. These mantras help the human mind to evolve into a higher level of consciousness.
During Navratra, Ma Shakti or the dynamic energy is invoked through mantra ‘japa’ or repetition of the mantra. The practice of mantra recitation originated in ancient times wherein a 'mool mantra' was given to the initiated. However, during Navratri, devotees repeat the universal Navratri mantra for the invocation of Ma Durga, which is 'Aim hreem kleem chamundaye vichche'. Mantras for Navratri include those included in the text 'Durga Saptashati' which comprises verses and hymns that can be recited with intense fervour. Similarly, japa of the ‘Gayatri mantra’, supposed to be a powerful mantra, brings you closer to attaining 'moksha'. Navratri mantra is associated with the principle of purification. However, the quantum of effect depends on the level of sincerity with which the mantra is recited. Each mantra follows a pattern of rhythm, as in the number of syllables to create a certain effect. Hence the powerful Navratri mantra has to be recited with the right intonation and with full reverence.
