Chanting a mantra is the best way to connect with the Divine for it contains all the energies of the Lord. ‘Mantra’ is made of ‘Mana’ meaning ‘the mind’ and ‘tra’ meaning ‘to deliver’; a mantra when chanted properly understanding its meaning delivers the mind from stress, torments and provocations by the unnecessary desires. Of all the mantras given in the Vedas, Shiva mantras are said to be the most powerful, purifying or sanctifying and peace-giving mantras. When chanted during Shivaratri or Shravan, these mantras act as powerful shields against the onslaughts of negative emotions. These mantras are popular and known all over the world. Yet, one must understand its deeper and actual meanings knowing which one will be delighted within to chant more and more.
