"The nature of reality is vibration. Sound is the source of all manifestation. Hazrat Inayat Khan said, “The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe.” When you experience the power of sound—which is the power of music—you hold the key, which can alter your destiny. Mantra provides a powerful tool that can release you from your past karmas (or conditioned habits) which reside in your body as mental patterns. Mantra is a Sanskrit word composed of two sounds: man, which means “mind,” and tra, which means “to cross over.” The literal meaning of the word mantra pertains to that which can help one to cross over and thus be set free from the habitual, unconscious patterns of the mind. Mantras can work like magic. Magic means “a shift in perception.” To be able to work magic, it is necessary to learn how to spell. Spelling refers not only to “casting spells,” but also to simply being able to say words correctly—not only with the right letters and pronunciation, but also with the right intention."
