The word mantra comes from a very beautiful experience; that of the sound waves moving the mind. Tra comes from tarang, which is the wave of sound. Man is the mind. When we chant sacred mantras, we are creating a sound wave that the mind feels safe to embark upon. This sound wave takes us out of our limited individual mind into our Infinite universal mind.
For years now, I have been in my own way working to bring awareness to the environment. I have a particular interest in the health of water, not only because I would like my grandchildren and generations to follow to have the joy of experiencing a pristine lake or creek, but I also feel that it is absolutely paramount to our survival on this planet.
