      • so suppose a person has a weak sun in his horoscope – and he starts reciting the sun mantra – then will the mantra simply make his mind stronger to deal with the problems created by the weak sun – or will the mantra actually cure his weak sun and instill in him added energy, boldness and confidence ?

      • I suggest you just ask for the quality you want – say confidence – do a mantra for that. One at a time so it can work. The book has plenty of mantras for each quality.

  6. Dear Rohiniji,

    First of all a big thanks and very many congratulations for giving us such a wonderful book full of mantras. I got my copy very recently and since then I have started practising mantras from it..

    I have seen that for many mantras you have mentioned the repetition count.
    I want to know how many times the following mantras has to be repeated in order to get siddhi of it..

    1. the Sarawathi mantra for gud intuition.
    2.Space clearing mantra
    3. Ajna chakra mantra – (lesson 80)
    4. Sudden gain mantra- lesson 69…

    please brief me about the counts…

    Thank you,

    Dinesh

    • Dear Dinesh,
      I am so glad you liked my book and are doing the mantras.

      The Saraswati shloka – yaa kundendu – being a shloka does not need a count. You can say it 3 or 7 or even 21 times every day or just say it 3 or 7 times before you begin work. It really helps.
      The space clearing shloka can be chanted once or at the most 3 times. It needs no more.

      The other two are mantras, the Ajna one and the sudden gain mantra. They, like all mantras need to be recited by malas – 1 mala a day for 40 days, or more malas if you are able. The first chapter tells you how to use a mala. A visualisation helps, focus on Ajna for the chakra mantra and visualise the diety for the whichever sudden gain mantra you chose.

      I hope that helps. Best of luck in your chanting.

    • Yes, every mantra – more than 400 – are in Sanskrit Devnagari script, English transliteration and English translation too. I do think you need to read them in Devnagari to get the proper pronounciation – and if you are not sure, the English transliteration can help.

  8. I have read this and continue to refer to it.It is a very good work on mantras..This work gives certain micro details .I wish in the next edition some more mantras for other purposes like wining a court case (provided you are on the right side) etc are added. As an ardent student of this science I use it as a reference book and would recommend to every one.

    Rohini Gupta with her just released book ‘Mantramala’
    I have known Rohini for many years…I have attended her classes and learned Tarot from her. What particularly changed my life was what she taught me about Belief systems…I shall always be grateful to her for the latter, so imagine my surprise when I learned that she has acknowledged me in her book…
    She writes:
    …To Ram Maheshwary of the Times of India who encouraged me to conduct five years of Sunday morning mantra workshops at the Times building, Mumbai in which I was able to test my methods with large groups of people. Thanks also to Shakun Narian of Times Foundation…

    ‘Mantras are a tool of the mind which can, with the appropriate effort and belief, influence your life. Associated as they are, with the distant past it is often assumed that they are not of much relevance today. Rohini Gupta has spent years questioning this assumption. In ‘Mantramala’ she presents mantras with an easy elegance that bridges the gap between the traditional ethos and the technological world of the twentyfirst century’

    Her book is really wonderful and easy to read and learn and apply the mantras…
    Follows a paragraph:

    “The name Sanskrit’ means ‘perfectly put together’: ‘krita’ means ‘crafted’ and ‘sam’ means ‘perfect’. so ‘sam-krita’, well crafted’…If you could see the higher levels of consciousness, for example, you could see the form of Shiva manifest when ‘Om namah Shivaya’ is recited. The rishis who gave us the mantras, saw the forms on higher levels of consciousness and described what they saw. Their description became the form of the deities, an attempt to depict the formless vibrations from a much subtler realm.

    …’Sanskrit is considered the most perfect language as it was created to translate the divine vibration in the only way we can comprehend it, which is through words in the form of mantras…Sanskrit was mantric vibration which later solidified into language’ …Sanskrit is called ‘dev-vani’ the speech of the gods, and the script is called ‘dev-nagari’ the city of the gods’…

  14. Thank you for this truly wonderful book on Mantras. The meaning given with the mantras and shlokas help us know what we can achieve when we chant with faith and the visualisations help us focus on the mantras.

    I personally have experienced the positive energy after chanting a couple of Mantras given in the book.

  16. I find it the most complete book on Mantras. It not only explains everything, it also tells us the correct method of doing the Mantras. One very important aspect of this book is that it gives us the visualization, which is Very Important as the mind is a monkey, which not only wanders, it keeps jumping from place to place. Thank -You Rohini, for giving us such a Lovely book.

  17. Dear friends,
    I want to share my views with you on the lovely book ‘Mantramala’ written by Rohini Gupta. This 370 page book gives the readers an in-depth look at how mantras are useful to us in todays times by explaining methodically the correct mantra to be used in the correct way. The mantras for different elements, your daily routine, festivals, different Gods and Devi mantras. One has v. little time in this fast paced life so there are ‘Beej mantras’, simple but equally powerful as mantras are in their own right. They can be used in many ways to achieve different goals.

    Rohini has covered many mantras and with useful explanations for all there. The Gayatri mantra that is v, important in day to day life has been covered with lovely explanation on different Gayatris like Sudarshan, Indra Gayatris, etc. makes it v. interesting to read and follow the same.

    There is section on Gurus tradition gives us an insight into how we can connect to the ‘Ultimate Gurus’ with the help of the shlokas and get their blessings. This can enable one to connect to your ‘Divine Guru’ and not have the need to have a person as a Guru.
    Also mantras for Happy family life, wealth, business, self confidence, protection, power and healing and more. Imp festivals and how one can celebrate them on physical and spiritual levels.

    We are surely interested in reading our Daily horoscope there is section on zodiac sign mantras as also Laxmi mantras is v. handy and informative.
    One will find many more interesting and informative subjects and improve ones life.
    To add here I have been lucky to do these mantras with her on regular basis and have first hand experienced the effect of all there so hope all of you will also benefit by reading the book at least.

  19. Initially, Mantramala appears to be ‘one more spiritual book’ (yawn). Then one gets down to ‘wading through’ it. The first thing that strikes a reader is the enormous scope of the book. Then, the trouble taken by Rohini Gupta to make such an esoteric subject easy to read for the lay reader. Truly a labour of love. The chapters on visualisations and methods to calm the mind can be used with great effect even by readers studying other books (Indian and Western) on Advaita.
