Welcome to Hindu Devotional Power blog. The word "mantra" is derived from two Sanskrit words, ‘Man’ which means “mind” and ‘Tra’ which means “to free from”. A Mantra is composed of certain letters arranged in definite sequence of sounds. Each mantra contains certain specific powers of God/Goddess. When chanted with the proper pranayama and sincere devotion, they will yield good results. In the recitation of Sanskrit Mantras the sound is very important.
