The mantras we chant are Sanskrit and Kundalini Yoga Mantras. They are designed to help us in these changing times and allows us to move from one state to another. For example, chanting the Mantra "Gu Ru" means moving from Darkness (Gu) to Light (Ru) They are traditionally repeated in cycles of 108 repetitions.
Mantra is a pure sound, significant for the sound and its reverberation, not for the meaning of it. It is the science of Mantras to create a sound that creates a certain atmosphere within yourself and around you.
“Mantra is the use of sound to affect consciousness; man means mind and trang means wave or projection. Everything in this world, down to the subatomic level, is in constant motion, vibrating. The denser a material, the more slowly it moves; often the vibration is so slow or so fast that we can’t notice it with our direct senses."
– Yogi Bhajan
