Mantra Siddhi

I recently was listening to some speeches regarding mantra usage. It was mentioned that any mantra should be repeated for at least 1 lakh time for it to work. Is it true? Pls throw some lights on it whenever you have time.

According to the Tantric texts, to attain Mantra Siddhi you have to

1. Repeat the Mantra a specified number of times. Normally the number of letters

in the Mantra multiplied by a lakh (100,000) . Another way we can put it is 100

rounds of a mala (of 108 beads) per letter. In doing a practice of counting the

number of repetitions of the mala, 100 are counted as completed. The remaining

are said to cover errors or omissions. The 8 are also said to be an offering to

God and Guru. For example for Navakshari (Navarna) Mantra it is 9,00,000 times.

Suppose you are doing purascharana of Om Namah Shivaya. There are five syllables

in the mantra, not counting Om. So you have to do five and a half lakhs

(550,000) to complete the purascharana. Complete purascharana of Gayatri is

twenty-four lakhs (2,400,000).

At everystage of mantra japa, blessings are received and a level of empowerment

is achieved. Initially it seems a tedious task to chant the mantra, but as you

start doing it regularly it takes over you and you start getting dissolved in

its sweetness and energy.. The closer you get to completing one stage, the more

the mantra pulls you towards its completion. You get power of achieving miracles

once you do mantra Siddhi of a mantra and invoke its full power.

A Guru often passes a mantra whose Mantra siddhi he has achieved to his disciple

which enables the disciple to invoke the mantra power instantaneously.

I find that in today’s hectic life a very practical solution is to get Pundits

to do mantra siddhi for you and then you can use the mantra to receive blessings

in everyday life by chanting it few times everyday. Please see section below

which has been developed for this. I often use services of pundits here to

energise mantras for me.
