How to Practice Likhita Japa (Mantra Writing) And Dissolve Stress Instantly

“Writing the mantra with full concentration is one hundred times more beneficial and powerful than Japa chanting.” – Vaishnava Tantra.

Likhita Japa (or mantra writing) is a very effective practice for integrating our personality. It is one of the most powerful methods of sadhana because so many of your senses are engaged simultaneously in this spiritual practice.

When the practitioner writes the mantra, the eyes see it, the hands feel the pen and the writing on the paper, the mouth recites it and it purifies the speech also, ears hear the reciting, the mind is filled with devotion, intellect thinks of the meaning of the mantra.

The eyes, the mind, the fingers and the hands all combine and cooperate together to create a highly concentrated type of meditation. This practice is deceptively simple, yet amazingly powerful.

The Sanskrit word “Likhita” literally translates as “writing, document, or handwriting” and the Sanskrit word ”Japa” literally translates as ”to repeat a specific word many times by writing, chanting aloud or in your mind at a consistent amplitude and frequency.”

Likhita Japa benefits

Likhita Japa has many benefits, but mainly it

  • brings purity to the heart and concentration to the mind;
  • gives you control of Asana, control of Indriyas, especially the tongue and the sight, and fills you with the power of endurance;
  • increases the practitioner’s memory;
  • mantra writing is a gateway to spiritual upliftment and a higher consciousness. In addition, this technique protects you with divine flow of energy, transforming a balanced progress in your spiritual wellness and your materialistic well-being;
  • a mighty spiritual force is generated in course of time in the atmosphere of the place, where you write the mantras or keep the notebooks.

Mantra writing method

Before starting this practice, the face, hands, and feet should be washed. Furthermore, effort should be made to keep the mind pure during the practice. Drive out all worldly thoughts while practicing Likhita Japa.

In mantra writing, the meditator repeats the mantra internally while writing it on paper.

Sit on a chair with back straight and mind focused on the particular mantra while performing Likhita Japa. You can use different colors for writing to make it interesting and also to make it more potent by the energy of colors.

Start repeating the mantra in your mind while writing it in the notebook. Sit quietly for a few minutes when you have finished your practice. Meditate on the meaning of the mantra.

Tips

The whole mantra should be written at once in continuity. Do not break the mantra during the practice in the middle when you come to the end of the line. Write the mantra clearly in ink.

The pen and copy used in this practice are commonly considered sacred and kept in an appropriate place.

When you select a mantra, try to stick to it.
