Abstract Thinking ► 01 ► [01.07] Anupreksha And Bhavana - Successful Recitation of A Spell (Mantra)

Posted: 15.08.2006

The entire space is full of sound-vibrations. But our ears or other devices cannot apprehend all sounds. All of them are able to grasp only particular sound-vibrations. This also follows the principle of frequency. There are long and short waves; to catch the wavelengths and to read their frequencies - when these two facts become known, the significance of bhavana is realised of itself. How far our mental culture is purified would depend upon the frequency of our bhavana and its particular wave-length. This is also the principle of the science of incantation. If the reciter of the spell does not know with what frequency the spell is to be articulated and at what wavelength, the spell is not likely to effect much good. It will not be beneficial. Each spell has its deity, its metre, and its disposer. Everything falls under his dispensation. An experienced incantator teaches his pupil how rhythmically and in what tone to articulate the spell, and how often. Until the practitioner of a spell fully masters the distinctions and various types of long, short, protracted, lofty and soft accentuation, the iteration of the spell would not produce the desired result. Without the requisite knowledge a practitioner might iterate a spell for ten years, he will gain nothing thereby. The electrical energy, which the recitation of the spell should have produced, does not issue forth and the incantation remains ineffective.

The exercise of bhavana is based on its frequent iteration, so as to produce waves, and it must be pursued continuously, till a point is reached when old mental impressions are uprooted and new impressions are established. This is the path of thaumaturgy, also the path of the soul's transformation.
