Mantras are strings of words in sanskrit that have a numinous sound, meaning that they can help connect us with the divine- regardless of what religion or thought system you subscribe to. We sing mantras to connect to the universe. Some people believe that mantras help open the crown chakra. When we use mantras, it doesn't matter what our voices sound like, all that matters is where it's coming from- your heart.
This page features a compilation of mantras that I've collected from watching YouTube videos, attending kirtans, and workshops I've taken. I hope that it helps you learn these sacred songs so that you, too, may share them with others!
