Hi sir. As I understand we have so many mantras and each one of those has a special purpose and benefits of chanting, what does this Sri Mahaganapati Mantra gives us if chanted. thank you.

1. Can unmarried girls/women get initiated into any "mantra" japam? Ans – yes they can 2. If yes, then wouldn't the syllable "Om" affect them? Ans – no it wont affect 3. Can mantra-japam be done even without an "asanam" (like mat)? Ans – yes, but you may catch cold 4. Some sit on plastic covers/ newspapers or even bare ground and start their nyasam, mantra, etc! Is this acceptable? Especially while they are outdoors? Ans – yes you can sit on ground 5. Can there be any (unwanted) speech during japam? Is it acceptable to give oral replies to people asking questions in between japam especially when one is outside home? Ans – concentrating on mantra, when you talk with other during mantra meditation you focus shifts, which will reduce the effect of meditation 6. Can the mantras be chanted wherever one one wishes to? Or is it restricted to only temples, homes, mutts, presence of holy persons, etc? Ans – Can be chanted anywhere 7. Some do their japam in trains, buses, hotels, hospitals, etc?! Is this acceptable? Does external purity also matter? Ans – Yes you can chant anywhere 8. While outside home, (like temples, etc) some do japam opening their eyes and "looking" at passerby's etc and their concentration wanders into the discussions that happen surrounding those strangers, passerby's etc and not on the mantra which they chant! Doesn't it then become name-sake! Is there any point? Will the japam be still considered as japam? Is it included in the japam-count? Ans – the best way of chanting is to keep chanting while doing day to day activities. Sitting and meditating is ideal, but can you do it all day? 9. Is initiation with just a dhyanam and mantra enough without rishi/chandas/kilaka/shakti/bijam/nyasam, etc? Ans – Mantra is enough. If you have time do everything 10. Can a person who was earlier initiated, but has left the japam long ago, wanting to start again start all by himself? Should he approach his guru again? What if the guru is not present now? Ans – yes you can chant initiated mantra now 11. How does one do a self-initiation of any mantra? Ans – Always initiation is advised you can read the article by Krishna for Self initiation https://www.manblunder.com/articlesview/self-initiation-of-mantras 12. Some use a mala without covering the same and do japam openly. Once japam is over they put it in some bag openly with other stuff they use, which may even have some eatables (especially while they are outdoors). Is it correct? Ans – Mala is not required it just distracts us while chanting. Rather chant for 20/30 mins 13. Some don't even use a japa-mala. They just do their japa-counts with their fingers! Is this acceptable? Ans – Same as above you can email at jayanth@manblunder.com

Thanks Jayanth. Hope someone clears other doubts as well, although they seem silly!

Mental chanting of mantra can be done anywhere and anytime Nyasa is not very compulsory ( for urga devata it is useful) Than counting chant mantra for 20 min's 30 mins etc You can get back to the mantra that initiated earlier. Chanting any new mantra initiation is always recommended. Nothing will happen if one chants OM, meaning nothing negative Initiation is for all.

We prefer to keep it in this format to benefit most people, especially those who do not understand any other language other than English. You may wirte to me if want it in Telugu or in any other language that interests you. You may also try a google translate on any of our articles or some other IAST/Devanagari translation/transliteration sites such as aksharamukha etc. Unfortunately, we may not be able to authenticate the translation, if we ourselves are not familiar with that specific language.

In general, they all belong to Durga devi. Only two of them such as āṣāḍha for Vārāhi and Magha for Mātaṅgi and Kāli, as śyāma, are noted. (https://www.manblunder.com/articlesview/magha-gupta-navaratri).

Pronunciation is authentic. This is a higher level mantra that can be taken up by śrī vidya devotees. The 19 lettered mantra and lower are more suitable for beginners. This kavacam is best and requires no initiation. The youtube link you posted earlier, is the best rendition for the kavacam available online.
