Sanskrit Mantra is Vibrationally True
Sanskrit is one of our only languages that has been shown to shift consciousness. Fans of sanskrit mantra will tell you it’s because this ancient language system expresses the exact vibrational essence of the thing the word represents. Chanting or meditating to mantra can also benefit your health by bringing your mind and body into a light, meditative state. This helps to reduce stress, enhance self-awareness to make important behavioral changes for wellness, and can even help combat additions or control food cravings.
Chanting a mantra with deliberate intent and devotional care can also be one of the most powerful ways to work with prayer for healing, and so we’ve gathered our favorite healing mantra albums to provide you 22 mantra tracks you can listen to for free, here on our site, or via Spotify on your computer or personal device.

Pavan – The Divine Breath
Par Para – From Beyond the Beyond
Pavan Guru – Breath is the Guru
Wahe Guru – The Experience of the Divine
Pavan is the air, the breath, carrier of the prana, the life force. This is God in action. This mantra increases the pranic energy and gives the experience of “may the force be with you.”
“Whoever recites this mantra becomes absolutely divine, God in action… This mantra incrases the pranic energy. There is no better healing than this.” – Yogi Bhajan
Oh my mind, practice Yoga in this way: Let Truth be your horn, sincerity your necklace, and meditation the ashes you apply on your body.
Catch your burning self and stop the flames. Let the self be the alms bowl in which you collect the sweet Naam and this will be the only support you will ever need.
The Universe plays its divine music. The sound of reality is shrill, but this is where God/Creator/Truth is. When you listen to the reality from this place of awareness the sweet essence of Raag arises.
Waves of melodies, emotions, and passions arise and flow through you. Bind yourself with the song of God/Creator/Truth.
The Universe spins like a potter’s wheel and from it fly demons and angels. The sage listens to this and instead of getting caught in either one, the sage drinks in the nectar of the heavens and is carried to the heavens in a divine chariot.
Instruct and clothe yourself with self control. Meditate unto infinity until you are meditating without meditating. In this way, your body shall remain forever golden, and death shall never approach you.
Guru Ram Das
Guru – teacher or guide that brings one from the darkness to the light.
Wahe – exclamation of ecstacy like ”WOW!”
Ram Das – literally translates as “God’s Servant”,
but also refers to Guru Ram Das, the Fourth Guru of the Sikhs
This mantra was given to Yogi Bhajan by Guru Ram Das in His astral self. As Guru Ram Das, the fourth Guru of the Sikhs, was known for humility and healing abilities this mantra is also known for its healing qualities and for imparting humility to the one who chants it.
This mantra relates directly to healing and protective energy represented by Guru Ram Das. The mantra is comprised of two parts. The first part is a nirgun mantra (Guru Guru Wahe Guru). This projects the mind to the source of knowledge and ecstasy. The second part is a sirgun mantra (Guru Ram Das Guru). This means the wisdom that comes as a servant of the infinite. It is the mantra of humility. It reconnects the experience of the finite to infinity.
Ang Sang Wahe Guru
Ang – ‘a part.’
Sang – ‘in every,’ or ‘with every.’
Wahe – ‘the indescribable living ecstasy of Infinite Being.’
Guru – ‘the knowledge that transforms your mind, emotion and essence.’
The whole phrase means:
“The Infinite Being, God, is with me, and vibrates in every molecule and cell of my being.”
Om Gum Ganapatayei Namah
Om is a spiritual sound representing the universe or Brahman, the essence of all creation. It is typically recited at the beginning and end of all Hindu prayers and is frequently chanted during yoga practice.
Gum is the sound representing the energy of Ganesh himself. It is his bija (seed syllable) mantra.
Ganapatayei, another name for Ganesh, is the formal Sanskrit pronunciation of the god’s name.
Namah is difficult to translate literally, but its meanings include “it is not mine” and “in your essence, we bow to you.”
Om Shanti Om
Om Shanti is a mantra, greeting and parting salutation used in meditation, yoga practice and Indian religions. Om has no translatable meaning, but is believed to be the sound of the universe, referred to as the cosmic vibration. Shanti is a Sanskrit word that means “peace,” but is also translated as “calm” or “bliss.”

Salutations to the being and power of the Celestial Healer.
This mantra helps us find the right path to healing, or directs us to the right health practitioner. In India it is also commonly chanted during cooking in order for the food to be charged with healing vibrations – either to prevent disease or assist in healing for those who are sick.
This mantra can be chanted for any situation that one would like to be healed or remedied. Good to remember and be open to the path of healing not necessarily looking the way we expect it! Dhanvantari is the celestial healer/physician – the patron saint of Ayurveda.
