“I am a humble instrument giving you a technique which is practical, and which can be proved. There is no duality. We do not give the mantra in the ear and we do not make a special mantra for the special person, because we know that one God has created everyone, and He is in everyone, and one master key can open all the locks of darkness and unawareness.”
6/14/79

“So that’s the power of mantra, because mantra moves the elements—all five elements, plus heavens, plus the Earth.”

“What is a mantra? Mantra is two words: Man and tra. Man means mind. Tra means the heat of life. Ra means sun. So, mantra is a powerful combination of words which, if recited, takes the vibratory effect of each of your molecules into the Infinity of the Cosmos. That is called ‘Mantra.’”

Sat Nam is the bij, or seed, mantra. It is small and potent. Great things grow from it. If it is not written in your destiny to be with God and to know higher consciousness, this mantra will engrave it in your destiny.” 
Aquarian Teacher p. 113

“When you recite a mantra, you make yourself positive, pure and your vibration is very penetrating.”

“It is most powerful when we chant and listen to our sound at the same time. If we chant only, it has half the power. Chanting and listening to the chant at the same time engages the higher consciousness, the circulatory system and the nervous system. When you develop this listening power, you will be able to analyze what is good for you and what is not whenever another person talks. It is a very simple way to have knowledge”

“The whole world may give you support…but if your own mind does not support you, you will not be in a position to do anything in life. Your own mind cannot be controlled and guided and give you the support until it is brought to a discipline. That word which brings a mind to a discipline to support you is called “Mantra.” Man-Tra: to bring discipline to the mind.”

“With mantra, your mind works for you and God wants you. That’s how beautiful you can be.”

“Fantasizing in meditation can be creatively positive if you do japa with it. Keep on cutting the fantasies with a mantra, then it will stop and your mind will be clean. Meditation with a mantra is nothing but day-dreaming. Any thought which you can pass through that meditation and cut it with a mantra will never occur in your life for any negative effect. Meditation and day-dreaming are not two different things. When you meditate, thoughts which you have never been aware of start appearing. Let the thoughts come, but see that the rhythm of the mantra is continuously there.”

“Just see how powerful a mantra can be. All the stars and the Universe are very powerful, I am not disagreeing with the powers. But, by chanting a mantra, just see how powerful you can be.”

“Mantra is that which projects the mind in a fixed direction.”
6/28/87

“Mantra is to stop your thoughts and say, Wahe Guru. That’s a mantra. If there’s a temptation and you can really grab it, instead, stop it and see what comes to you.”
7/29/96

“Mantra is a code of projection to decode the mystery of divinity. And when your mantra is perfect, connection is perfect, you get what it is.”
