These ‘seed’ sounds are found in the Tantric tradition. Here the emphasis is not on transcending or overcoming the physical body, but more in recognising the body as a ‘temple of the divine’. Through accepting and meeting ourselves, we also come nearer to that which moves through us and exceeds us.
Bija mantra are sounds that trigger or awaken the chakras , the ‘seven souls’.
Other Bija mantra may be used to evoke living qualities of the universe.
We contemplate on the nature of ‘seed’. A seed contains within it the potential of the whole, not yet formed, not yet awakened. A seed can remain dormant until it is touched by light , water, air, life-force or …sound.
