Why is my mantra not working? I have been chanting but my desire is not fulfilled. Mantras are just useless.
Remember, mantras are very powerful. They have been written down by great Sages and some mantras have been given by the God Himself. They do work if you do it in the right way. Many have been benefited by constantly chanting and practicing them. I will now let you know the proper way to chant the mantras.
Wake up in the brahma muhurtham (before sunrise)
After the ablutions, light deepam and incense
Pray, let God know what you desire and tell Him why you want to chant the mantra
Then get into meditative state where your mind is absolutely still
Start chanting the mantra with full faith and concentration
Chant the mantra not too slow and definitely not too fast. When you chant the mantra, your mouth, your ears, your mind and finally your whole body has to feel the vibrations of the mantra.
After chanting, say Thanks to the God for letting your desire to come true. (At that point, you may not have what you wished, but the faith you kept on Him will make the thing happen and that He will start working on your desire right away)
Chant the mantra 108 times for 40 days.
Mantra works even best when you chant the mantra in groups or with the mantra playing at the back and you say along with it.
