Anahata Mantra for Heart Chakra - Lyrics, Meaning, Benefits, Download

Learn everything about this Chakra mantra that is known to make you more open to affection.

The Anahata Mantra, or the 'Yam' mantra, is associated with the Anahata or heart chakra.

The Anahata chakra is the fourth of the seven chakras or energy centers residing in different locations of the human body.

The heart chakra is situated close to the heart in the center of the chest.

The Anahata chakra is considered to be the energy center for all imaginative powers, and divine qualities like love, compassion, empathy, etc.

It influences and connects human attributes to the more sublime abilities that go beyond the tangible.

'Anahata', in the Sanskrit language, means unstruck, or untouchable, or infallible. It is the purest form.

This chakra is associated with air and is considered to be the source of our unfettered free-flowing powers that can expand to infinity.

If the heart chakra is not in harmony, it can force you to have a rather narrow view of life.

Moreover, if there is a heart chakra imbalance, it can impact you physically with issues like heart-related illness, breathing disorders, and insomnia.

The Yam sound activates the heart chakra. It is the seed syllable or bija mantra of the Anahata chakra.

Chanting the Anahata mantra regularly cleanses your heart chakra and heals you of emotional grievances.

It makes you more compassionate and strengthens you to be capable of forgiveness and being receptive to love.

Anahata mantra is part of the Ancient Chakra Healing Meditation Mantras.

Meaning of the Mantra

The Yam mantra is considered one of the universal sounds in tantric yoga. Bija mantras, or 'seed' mantras, unlike most mantras, do not include any mention of the deity.

Instead, the mantra focuses on the energy flow and uses power in the inherent vibrations of the sound 'Yam'.

Some consider the deities of this chakra to be Shiva and Parvati. Shiva is the embodiment of consciousness while Parvati is a representation of nurturing nature.

The Anahata chakra when functioning at its most efficient brings the balance between nature and consciousness.

The vibrations from the Yam mantra are believed to cleanse and activate the Anahata chakra. The Yam sound when chanted out loud repeatedly attunes your mind to reality.
