Bija Mantras for the 7 Chakras
This is the continuation of my article Significance and Location of the 7 Chakras and Diseases associated with them. In order to enjoy good health it is essential to have healthy Chakras. But this does not happen always as Chakras can become imbalanced because of numerous factors like stress, physical and emotional traumas, stagnant energy, and unexpressed emotions etc. There are several methods or ways for balancing and healing a chakra imbalance. One of the methods to treat a Chakra imbalance is by chanting the Beeja Mantra (also referred to as Bij or Bija or Seed Mantras) related to the Chakra. The bija mantras used for chakra healing are seven Sanskrit words that correspond to the 7 major Chakras in the human body. These Beeja Mantras have immense healing powers and seem to have originated from the Hindu culture.
Given below are the Beeja Mantras for the 7 Chakras in the Human body.
Mantras to Activate and Energize the 7 Chakras
1st Chakra (Root or Base Chakra)
The mantra for this chakra is ‘Lam’.
2nd Chakra (Sacral Chakra)
The mantra for this chakra is ‘Vam’.
3rd Chakra (Solar Plexus Chakra)
The mantra of the Solar Plexus Chakra is ‘Ram’.
4th Chakra (Heart Chakra)
The mantra of the Heart Chakra is ‘Yam’.
5th Chakra (Throat Chakra)
The mantra for this Chakra is ‘Ham’.
6th Chakra (Third Eye Chakra)
The mantra for this Chakra is ‘Om’.
7th Chakra (Crown Chakra)
The mantra for the Crown Chakra is ‘Om’.
It is said that by chanting the chakra mantras at least once in a day can help in activating, energizing and balancing the chakra system and clearing off blockages.

thank you, Anamika!

Thank you for answer my question about the crown chakra.
Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on August 13, 2014:
@ J Elias bar Elias Thanks for pointing out the mistake. The sounds associated with Crown chakra are all the vowels and consonants of the Sanskrit alphabet. Therefore the mantra AUM can be used for this chakra as it contains all the sounds of the Sanskrit alphabet.
José Elias on August 13, 2014:
Anamika, I have read in this article that: "7th Chakra (Crown Chakra)
The mantra for the Crown Chakra is ‘All’.
It is said that by chanting the chakra mantras at least once in a day can help in activating, energizing and balancing the chakra system and clearing off blockages."
All seems to be a word that belongs to English.
It is a mistake?Is the seed mantra for crown chakra "AUM"?

Great post Anamika. Want to try it but haven't found the will and determination to apply myself - keep making excuses. Some day I will start.
Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on May 26, 2010:
Thanks for the encouragement Maheshji. I am happy that you found this hub of chakra bija mantras helpful.
Sue Real: Thanks for the compliment. But I do not think i am knowledgeable enough to qualify as a Guru. Anyway, I am happy you liked it.

Pacal Votan : Thanks for the appreciation and visit.
DennisBarker : Thanks for the visit. Yes, Mantras are very powerful. I am more it to the Hindu religious mantras and have found them helpful.
DennisBarker from Newcastle Upon Tyne,UK on September 28, 2009:
Many years ago, I did a six week course in which we spent a large amount of time chanting the mantras of chakras , along with mongolian overtone chanting, which I found facinating and empowering.
Chanting to empower any aspect of your life can be very helpful as a way to focus energy and attention.
Pacal Votan on September 28, 2009:
Thanks for sharing the Mantras, Anamika. And the video is great too, because it shows how to pronounce them alright. :)
Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on September 12, 2009:
Chanting Mantras is only one way for treating Chakras. There are several others which i would be writing about in my future hubs. Thanks for the visit.
