Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
How does one find the right mantra?
The Mantra you receive from one who is fully realized is the right mantra. If you receive your mantra from one who has himself received something from it, you can also receive something from that mantra.
There is a saying in Sanskrit:
mantra chaitanya vignata
“Receive mantra from one who has realized its full conscious power”
So if you receive a mantra from one for whom those mantras become fully alive, fully conscious, that same mantra will also bear full fruit for you.
Our Mantra is:
“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”
This is called a Maha-Mantra.
The mystery of mantra is profound, and from a certain viewpoint every letter is a mantra. Each word is bound to do its work, depending on what it denotes. These mantras bring results immediately. Likewise, the maha-mantra, the great mantra, directs you toward the highest goal of man. By repeating the mantra, we achieve the true goal of life. According to the scriptures and personal experience, it is the Supreme Principle, which has manifested itself as mantra.
