Mantras Rasayanum: 

||Shree Ganeshaya Namaha ||

Mantra Rasayanum is the type of healing process by chanting various mantras to improve health. The mantra Rasayana should be done in auspicious nakshatra (Planetary position) such as Pushya nakshatra. The person who wishes to administer the mantra Rasayana should take bath in Brahma muhurat (Before sunrise), do the yagna and offer 1000 ghee sacrifices in yagna by chanting ‘Shree Sukta’ from Rig Veda. Before chanting ‘Shree Sukta’ one should start whole purification ritual with Mahanirvana Mantra:

Mahanirvana Mantra:

Aum Sat Chit Ekam Brahma |

A – Protector of the world
U- He who dissolves it
M- The creator
Sat- Eternal changeless being
Chit- Consciousness
Ekam- One without a second
Brahma- What is Vast
Meaning: The presiding Devta (God) of Mantra is the omnipresent, eternal, inscrutable, formless, stainless, and ineffable Brahman.

The basic doctrine underlying Mantra Rasayana / Yoga is that this entire hard and tangible universe which we see around us is made up only of different kind of vibrations and energies working at the different levels. Mantra Rasayana / Yoga help all the vibrations and energies work in the positive manner. Mantra symbolizes as a necessity for spiritual advancement and high attainment. It purifies the body, spirit and mind. Also it improves the atmosphere / magnetic circle around the person. Two of the greatest Rasayana mantras are Gayatri Mantra and Maha Mritunjaya Mantra.

It should be recited preferably for forty days both in the morning, after lighting a jyoti and sitting on a woolen asana while facing east. Recite the Maha-mantra 108 times (one rosary) or its multiples in each sitting.
