The Shakti Mantra line is inspired by what happens when we focus on the things that inspire our lives and what truly makes us happy.
The word Mantra can be broken up into 2 words. Man which means “Mind” and Tra which means the “vehicle”.
Mantra can be used as an instrument of the mind and to bring more power and strength into certain aspects of your life. In the world of Yoga, Mantras are postures for the mind. Mantras are affirmations which help keep you connected to a particular state of mind.
At the end of the day, Mantras are meant to bring you back to yourself. To keep you focused on a particular part of your path or deeper part of yourself you want to express.
The Mantra Necklaces we currently make at the house of Shakti are the OM Mantra Necklace, the Lakshmi, and the OM Mani Padme Hum Mantra. We are constantly adding to our mantra collection to inspire and empower you to live a life of purpose and meaning.
OM transcends all religion and is the symbol of the primordial sounds referring to the SOUL or self within. It is the infinite, the all encompassing, the TRUTH and the essence of lie. OM has the power to CREATE everything. Say it, feel it, be it.
LAKSHMI is the representation of wealth, success, beauty, fortune, abundance and prosperity. It comes in all forms, not just monetary. Abundance comes to you when you rise above all impurity. It comes to you and stays with you when you are pure in your intention. If you chose the Lakshmi Mantra necklace, you are wanting to focus on this part of your life.
OM MANI PADME HUM…It is said that all of the teachings of the Buddha are contained in this Mantra. The OM symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech and mind of a Buddha. MANI is the altruistic intention to becoming compassionate, loving and more awake. PADEM is the lotus and symbolizes deep wisdom. HUM means purity. This is a powerful mantra in which the seed of purity and enlightenment comes from within us.
