Mantras used by spiritual aspirants to achieve God- Realization are called deity Mantras . They are Saguna , with qualities or form producing, and aid the conceptualisation process, just as do visual symbols.

In time, recitation gives rise to the actual form of the particular deity. As a specialized sound body of consciousness, the Mantra is the deity itself. The form of the deity manifests as the visible portion of the sound. The Mantra, therefore, must be repeated in the proper way, with attention to the syllables and rhythm. If translated, it ceases to be a Mantra because sound vibrations newly created in translation cannot evoke it. Only the rhythmical vibrations of the Sanskrit syllables properly recited can regulate the unsteady vibrations of the worshipper and permit the form of the deity to arise.

Every true Mantra fulfils six conditions.

• It was originally revealed to the sage, who achieved Self-Realization through it and passed it down to others.

• It has a presiding deity and

• A specific meter.

• It possesses a beeja , or seed, investing it with a special power that is the essence of the Mantra.

• It also has dynamic divine power, or shakti .

• Lastly, there is a plug that conceals the pure consciousness hidden in the Mantra. As soon as the plug is removed by constant prolonged repetition, pure consciousness is revealed, and the devotee receives the vision of his deity.

At the time of initiation by a guru, one's deity or ishta devata is chosen. Every person has worshipped some deity in previous lives; the impression of this worship is imprinted in the subconscious mind. These impressions have influenced the mental vibrations and have helped to form the particular mentality. If one cannot discover his own natural inclination, the guru will choose the deity in accordance with his insight. Once the deity and appropriate Mantra have been selected, and the aspirant has received initiation, he works with the Mantra until reaching enlightenment.

Other deity Mantras can also be used in a supplementary way, such as foe acquiring particular attributes. Repetition of " OM Aim Saraswatyai Namah " bestows wisdom, intelligence and creative achievement. " OM Sri Maha Lakshmyai Namah " confers wealth and prosperity. The Ganesha Mantra removes obstacles in any undertaking. The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra prevents accidents, incurable disease and calamities, and bestows longevity and immortality. It is also a moksha Mantra, bringing liberation.

The Gayatri Mantra is the supreme Mantra of the Vedas. It is the one Mantra that can be commonly prescribed for all, for Maa Gayatri is the Mother of the universe, Shakti herself, and there is nothing she cannot do. Her Mantra purifies the mind; destroys pain, sin and ignorance; brings liberation; and bestows health, beauty, strength, vitality, power, intelligence and magnetic aura. Repetition of the Gayatri Mantra, OM Namah Sivaya, OM Namo Narayanaya, or OM Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya 125000 times, with feeling, faith, and devotion secures for the devotee the grace of the presiding deity.
