Saa is the Infinite, the Totality, God. It is the element of ether, the origin, the beginning, and it contains all other effects. It is subtle and beyond.

It gives you the capacity for effective communication, so your words contain mastery and impact. This mantra helps you conquer the wisdom of the past, present, and future. It brings you peace and prosperity even if it wasn’t in your destiny.

This mantra takes away negativity from within oneself awakening the Infinite Creative energy to burn away obstacles to achieving higher consciousness.


This second mantra is the Vishnu Shanta Karam mantra, an ancient chant that pays homage to one of the three primary Hindu deities, Vishnu. This powerful mantra can help the listener get over any rational or irrational fear clouding their mind.
