Is the only spiritual mantra taught in mythology? Here are a few examples

  1. Lord Ganesha with the elephant’s head depicts that one should use their wisdom before taking any decision.
  2. Vishnu’s first incarnation, fish, symbolizes learning to swim in the opposite direction.
  3. Brahma’s five heads mean to use all your five senses before taking any decision.
  4. Shiva’s third eye means to think differently in difficulties.
  5. Ravan’s ten heads mean using your ten senses before taking any decision. But, Ravan used them for negative forces.
  6. Maha Mrityunjaya mantra begins as we worship the three–eyed Shiva.
  7. Gayatri mantra means that one should ask the heart to direct the intellect to take the right decision. The 3H philosophy is linked to the same. The first H is ask the head for options; second H is to ask the heart to choose one of the options and the third H means to order the hand to do the action

On 6th Navratri chant AUM

Mata Katyayani is worshipped on the sixth day of Navratri. SHE has three eyes and four hands and rides on a Lion.

The top right hand is positioned in a gesture of providing courage and the other hand is positioned in a gesture of rendering a boon. The top left hand is holding a sword and the other holding a lotus.

In Yoga Shastra she represents the Ajna Chakra and AUM bija mantra.   AUM chanting helps attaining success in religion, wealth, passion and salvation and removing fear and sorrows.

On 6th day one should control aggression (lion), help and protect others (mudras) and practice detached attachment (lotus) using the sharp intelligence (sword). AUM chanting is one of the most powerful mantra and should be done concentrating on the Ajna chakra on this day.

Out of eight hands five contains:

1.   Bow (to bend)

  2. Sword (sharp intelligence)
  3. Mace (power to destroy the evil).

Rest three hands contains

  2. Lotus (detached attachment)
  3. Kamandalu (acceptance).

Spiritual mantra on the 3rd Navratri

On 3rd Day control aggression in the mind (lion) which is of a natural  occurrence by this time during detoxification by keeping a balanced mind ( trishul) through persisting in one’s efforts of controlling the desires (beaded rosary) by practicing detached attachment (lotus) and accepting things as they are (Kamandalu) in an ego less state ( bow). This can be done by now starting thinking differently (third eye) and by using one’s qualities of sharp intelligence (sword), focusing on one point (arrow and bow) and killing negative energies by using your power (mace or gada).
