Mantra (Lecture Excerpt)

Mantra is a sound formula. It is a vibratory composition. Commonly people understand stutis and ślokas as mantras, but real mantras do not carry any dictionary words.
A mantra is just a sound graph.
There are three types of mantras,: female, male and eunuch. Each type of mantra creates its own effect.
What will you realize by mantra? First, it will take you out of the torments you suffer from due to your thoughts and you will have a new vision. The new vision will be that the cosmos is not anything but Śiva and Śaktī; sat and cit; station and motion.
