Mantras are an essential part of any Kundalini Yoga student’s educational journey. Mantras are our connection to the universe, and the way our personal energy enters the infinite consciousness as sound.
When we use mantras, we are opening ourselves up to the power of the universe. In this guide we will look at the Ra Ma Da Sa mantra, also known as the Siri Gaitra mantra, and its healing benefits.
This beautiful mantra is called upon for its exquisite healing powers, bringing our bodies and energy in line with that of the universe, and balancing vibrations which have found themselves out of rhythm due to illness, stress, or loss.
Ra Ma Da Sa Meaning
The Ra Ma Da Sa mantra represents the Kundalini flow held within the spine, coiled like a serpent. In this illustration, “Ra” represents the sun, with its hot, powerful, purifying energy.
“Ma” is the moon. It is cool, calm, and collected, and it accepts things with love and serenity. “Da” represents the energy of the earth, keeping us grounded and whole, especially when things are up in the air. This is the security that we need in the face of uncertainty.
And finally, “Sa” represents the impersonal infinity. It connects the mantra, from our own mouth, to the sounds of the universe and beyond, merging the energies together, the earthly with the divine. “Sa” is the glue that holds us in place, and binds the moon, sun, and earth.
Ra Ma Da Sa Benefits
This beautiful mantra draws upon the power of the sun, moon, earth, and the infinite self to bring profound healing.
For many people, practicing this mantra alongside kriyas and meditation is effective, but others find reassurance in the inclusion of the mantra on clothing and body art, to keep it ever-present and close to the heart.
Students of Kundalini Yoga who practice the Ra Ma Da Sa mantra regularly report positive benefits across all aspects of their lives. Some of these benefits include:
- A sense of peace and an ease with the world, and your place within the universe
- Improved recovery from illness and injury, as well as less frustration at the healing process
- An improved confidence, reassured by your connection to the universe and its infinite wisdom
- Healing from trauma is eased, particularly from being unwell, or struggling with mental health
- A feeling of wellness and energy that suggests a weight has been lifted
These benefits are profound in so many Kundalini Yoga students who choose to explore the Ra Ma Da Sa mantra, as it helps to return your rhythm to the natural sound of the earth, helping them to come to terms with their past and accept the challenges of the future head on.
Healing from illness or trauma can take time. Even when the body is well, the mind and spirit can still be reeling from its impact.
Utilizing a mantra such as Ra Ma Da Sa allows you to take back power of your body and spirit, and begin to heal. Bring the Ra Ma Da Sa mantra into your practice and see how it can benefit you today.
