Mantras are short prayers you say to yourself to help calm the mind. A peaceful mind is a happy mind.
The first two sutras: chapter 1, v2 and v3
- Yoga citta vritti nirodhah – Yoga is the resolution of the agitations of the mind.
- Tada drastuh svarupe vasthanam – Then the seer abides in its own nature.
What this means is once the citta vritti (mind stuff—thoughts, conflicts, anger, fears) subsides you will begin to “know the Self” or experience Self- awareness.
As you embark on the process of awakening (enlightenment, self-realization, and happiness) you begin to see life differently. Instead of things coming at you, as in people doing things to hurt you or cause distress. You begin to understand that life isn’t coming at you–you are creating life from emotional memories buried in the subconscious mind. This memory is being projected by you to the outer world.
Your awareness is seeking wholeness and unity and attempting to resolve anything out of balance with this idea of wholeness. Once the mind resolves the narrative you won’t be triggered or reactive, or blame others or anything else going on in your life.
Mantras are offered as a way to help the mind to let go of the commentary.
